Rocket Mortgage Classic Odds, Field and Betting Picks

Despite winning six times on the PGA Tour, this is the first time that Tony Finau will defend a championship. He only had two wins to his credit at this time last year before winning the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic and 3M Open in back-to-back weeks. He also has two wins this season with the most recent one coming at the Mexico Open at Vidanta in late April. Check the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic Odds and our Free betting picks!

Finau comes to Detroit as the second-highest ranked player in the field behind Max Homa at No. 9. This event will be contested for the fifth time. In 2021, Cameron Davis won in a five-hole playoff over Troy Merritt. Previous winners were Bryson DeChambeau (2020) and Nate Lashley (2019).

The Course

While the event is just five years old, the Detroit Golf Club dates back to 1899 when six holes were available to play. Two courses—the North and South Course—were designed by Donald Ross in 1913. The pros play on 17 holes of the North Course and one from the South Course. It’s also the flattest course on the PGA Tour.

The course is par 72 with a total yardage of 7,370. Hole No. 4 is a whopper of a par 5 at 635 yards. Finishing up, the par-5 17th played as the easiest hole last year, and the par-4 18th played as the second-hardest.

Finau’s win last year set the tournament record of a 26-under 262. 

Can Finau Repeat?

There are plenty of solid contenders behind Tony Finau (+1000) on the odds board, so the winner this week will give some good value no matter who it is. Finau has four wins in the last calendar year, but his win in Mexico was his only top-10 finish since the Farmers Insurance Open in January. 

But since the Farmers, he’s only played majors and designated events, and all of his wins over the past year have come in events more like the Rocket Mortgage Classic. This is his third straight week of golf, as he was 32nd at the U.S. Open Championship and 45th at the Travelers Championship last week.

Other Contenders

Finau is getting plenty of respect among the oddsmakers as defending champion, but he is far from a sure thing. Most of the players just behind him in the odds also are in great need of a win. Namely, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler, who are all at +1200.

Thomas is the most recent winner, having done so in May 2022 at the PGA Championship. It’s coming up two years since Morikawa’s last win (2021 Open Championship), and Fowler’s win drought is at over four years (2019 WM Phoenix Open). 

Of the three, Fowler is playing the best golf. He was the co-leader going into the final round at the U.S. Open before settling for a fifth-place finish. His 13th at the Travelers Championship last week (which included a third-round 60) extended his run of top-15 finishes to eight of his last nine stroke-play events. 

Thomas is playing here for the first time and gained a little momentum with a ninth in Connecticut last week—his first top 10 since the Valspar Championship in March. Playing in a rare non-designated event or major, this could be the spot where Thomas returns to the winner’s circle.

Collin Morikawa has played well despite missing the cut at the Travelers. After an awful first round, he shot a 63 on Friday but wasn’t good enough to get to the weekend. That solid round, coupled with a 14th at the U.S. Open and the weekend off, could provide motivation and momentum for his debut in this tournament. 

Max Homa (+1500) is coming off two missed cuts in the last two tournaments, but he has a good history here to draw upon. He has two top-25 finishes in three tries at Detroit GC, and his scoring average in those 12 rounds is 3-under par. It’s been tough sledding for Homa after winning twice earlier this year and just missing out on a third to Jon Rahm at Riviera, but a solid history here means that Homa should be a threat. 

Hideki Matsuyama (+1600) is also looking for his first win of the season. Despite not logging a top-10 finish since The Players Championship in March, the native of Japan has been playing solid golf. Since the Valero Texas Open in early April, Matsuyama has finished outside the top 25 just two times in seven tries with a worst result of 32nd at the U.S. Open. He was -15 over the final three rounds at the Travelers last week, good enough for a 13th-place finish. 

Tom Kim (+2000) finished eighth here last year, which is when he started to get hot before winning the Wyndham Championship to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs. He won again in the fall but has been quiet for much of 2023. That changed with an eighth at the U.S. Open and was 38th last week despite a +2 in the third round at TPC River Highlands.

Keegan Bradley (+3000) was the big winner last week, breaking the tournament record at the Travelers that stood since 2009. It’s always tough to back someone after an emotional win the week before, but he’s 3-for-3 in this tournament with a best finish of 14th in 2021. 

Longshots

Two of the four winners here have been first-time PGA Tour champs, so if you want to back a potential new champion, look at rookie Austin Eckroat (+5000). After missing cuts in the majority of his tournaments through April, the 24-year-old has made seven consecutive weekends. Included in that is a runner-up at the AT&T Byron Nelson, an impressive 10th at the U.S. Open, and a consistent run to 24th last week in Connecticut. 

2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic Odds

Finau showed in Mexico that he can go low despite not being in great form, but we think a different golfer who’s ready to break a drought is going to get it done this week. Look towards Thomas, Fowler, and Matsuyama at decent odds along with Tom Kim.
