The PGA TOUR is in Detroit this week for the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic and the betting board is an absolute humdinger.
After three straight extraordinary fields plenty of star players are understandably taking this week off and that has opened the door for Bryson DeChambeau to vault to the top of the odds as a +650 ($10 bet wins $65) favorite.
Bettors will remember the inaugural Rocket Mortgage as a clean sweep for the sportsbooks after Nate Lashley, a Wednesday alternate, went wire-to-wire to lift the trophy. Lashley was added to the field so late that he didn’t have pre-tournament odds and he wasn’t included in DFS pools. Go figure.
Will we see another out-of-nowhere winner at Detroit Golf Club on Sunday?

Brandt Snedeker (+4500)
Considering the top four finishers on last year’s inaugural Rocket Mortgage leaderboard ranked an average of 397th in the world, I can’t bring myself to take any chalk this week. In fact, I won’t bet anyone with odds better than 40/1, but I can’t pass the value here on Sneds.
He’s won on three different Donald Ross-designed courses in his career and finished top-10 at three others, including last year’s top-five here at Detroit GC.
That’s an obvious trend which I could certainly see continuing this week.
Kevin Na (+4000)
Na is coming off a fifth-place finish at the Travelers last week and I think he should fit in well here if this year’s Rocket Mortgage plays similar to the inaugural event in 2019.
