The PGA Tour heads to the Midwest for the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club.

After a few weeks in a row of loaded fields, many of the tour's stars have decided to take the week off.

There are still plenty of big names in the field, including Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, Hideki Matsuyama and Max Homa. And bets have been rolling in on those guys as well as the longer shots in the field.

Fowler is by far the most popular bet of the week. He's been on an absolute tear in recent weeks, finishing in the top 15 in his last four events.

Going back to THE PLAYERS in March, he's finished in the top 20 in every event but one. He's getting 12.7% of the bets and accounts for 15.8% of the handle at BetMGM. Fowler is one of the favorites this week at +1200 odds.

The other popular bet of the week is Justin Thomas. He's getting 8% of the tickets and accounts for 8.2% of the money. Thomas has struggled this season, but seemed to find some form at The Travelers last week. Thomas is +1600 to win the Rocket Mortgage.

The second biggest liability for BetMGM is Austin Eckroat. Eckroat opened at +6600 and is currently +4500 at BetMGM. He's getting 4.2% of the bets and accounts for 6.2% of the handle.

There are a couple of players that appear to be getting some sharp action this week. Finau, as the favorite along with Fowler, is getting 6.7% of the bets and accounts for 9% of the money.

Matsuyama, who has flown under the radar in recent weeks, is also getting a significant amount of money at BetMGM. He's currently garnering 5.7% of the tickets and accounts for 7.5% of the money.

Picks: Tony Finau +1200 | Hideki Matsuyama +1800
