Rocket Mortgage Classic: Odds, Picks and Betting Preview
An in-depth preview of the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic on the PGA Tour
The PGA Tour rolls into Detroit for the fourth event since the restart and though we’re lacking a few of the top stars, there’s still a very solid field taking part. Bryson DeChambeau heads the betting (best price +600) after a string of top 10 finishes and he’ll be a popular pick once again. Our handicapper Brian Good has two picks for you at slightly bigger odds that should give you a run for your money!
We’ve put together a guide that should give you all the information you need to make profitable wagers on the event, with betting picks, DFS picks and all the very best odds.
Where is the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic?
Detroit Golf Club, Par 72
First Tee: Thursday, July 2, 7:00 a.m. ET
Field: 156 Players
What can we expect of Detroit Golf Club? What attributes do the players need?
Last year's winner Nate Lashley managed to get to -25, so it certainly didn't play too tough in 2019. The fairways were wide and the rough wasn't long so it certainly didn't put a premium on accurate drivers. Assuming conditions will play similar this year, you're looking at needing a long-hitting birdie machine!
Rocket Mortgage Classic – Betting Picks
Handicapper Brian Good provides his betting picks for the week:
Tyrell Hatton to win (+1600) – Click Here To Bet
Hatton hasn’t played much this season, but when he has he’s been spectacular. He’s appeared in five events on the season and finished in the top 10 four times. He’s only played once since the restart and finished T-3 at the RBC Heritage. He’s first on the Tour in Total Strokes gained and Strokes Gained: Tee-To-Green. Expect another remarkable showing from the 28-year old this weekend.
Viktor Hovland to win (+2000) – Click Here To Bet
Hovland has been playing great golf lately, and I expect it to continue this week. He opened up the restart with two top-25 finishes before closing out last week’s Travelers Championship T-11. His putting and work around the green haven’t been consistent enough to win, but he’s been great off the tee and with his approach. If he can put it all together this weekend, he’ll have a chance to get his second Tour win this season.
Wagered on the 2020 Masters yet? The money has been pouring onto last week's winner Dustin Johnson for Augusta with 26% of bets in the last seven days being placed on the big-hitting American.
Rocket Mortgage Classic - Daily Fantasy Picks
Two guys to add to your DFS lineup this week:
Kevin Na ($9,100)
Na followed up his disappointing showing at the Charles Schwab Challenge with a solid fifth-place finish at last week’s Travelers Championship. Na has putted the ball beautifully on his way to 14th in the FedEx Cup Rankings and is a strong pick this week at $9,100. He already has a win this season and three top-10 finishes. Last year’s winner shot 25-under par, so we can expect more low scores throughout play.
Brandt Snedeker ($7,900)
Snedeker has been somewhat disappointing this season, but he looked as though he was getting his game together last weekend, and I expect to see more improvement this time around. Snedeker played in this tournament last year, finishing fifth at 17-under par. $7,900 is great value for a player like Snedeker that’s trending in the right direction and has had success at the course before.
