RBC Heritage Betting Preview & Golf Tips
Any tournament that follows the Masters will be seen as an anti-climax and it’s true that the RBC Heritage is missing some notable golfers this week. Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and our new Major Champion Sergio Garcia are all absent from the tournament but that does leave plenty of value in a large field.
Matt Kuchar leads the RBC Heritage outright betting odds market and can be backed at an industry best of 16/1 with Betfred. Kuchar won this tournament in 2014 but his only win since then came in Fiji on the Australasia tour in 2015 so form doesn’t necessarily justify that price. A tie for 4th at the Masters is probably propelling that figure and he has a good overall record here but I feel this is one to swerve.
Second favourite is Brandt Snedeker who comes in at best odds of 25/1 with Betfred again. Sneds has given us some good Returns in the top 10 betting over the last few months but recent form has dipped and he doesn’t feature at all in the Power Rankings.
Luke Donald has been runner-up in this tournament on no fewer than four separate occasions, and the Englishman finished in second place 12 months ago. Considering Donald hasn’t won an event since 2012 that is an interesting statistic and you cannot rule him out at the top price of 40/1 with Stan James and BetVictor.
Elsewhere, Tyrrell Hatton is the highest ranked player on show this week but the world number 15 is out at a tempting price of 30/1 with SkyBet. That figure represents definite value and Hatton is the first of our top ten tips at odds of 11/4 with BetVictor.
Defending Champion this week is South Africa’s Branden Grace who is listed in the outrights at an industry best of 30/1 with Betfred. Earlier in 2016, Grace had won his second consecutive Qatar Masters and following a seventh on debut at this event in 2015, he is another obvious consideration.
One man who will attract some interest following a positive debut at The Masters is William McGirt. The American briefly led the event on day one before eventually finishing in a tie for 22nd. He has two ninth placed finishes in this event, ranks highly for crucial factors such as GIR and Fairways hit and is possibly the best of the outside options at 50/1 with Bet365 for the win.
Kevin Na is also interesting me at that same best price of 50/1. Rated 11th in the PGA Power Rankings for this tournament, he has a pair of top tens here and is another strong option in that market at 4/1 with BetVictor.
Elsewhere, Graeme McDowell is another previous winner of the RBC Heritage and the 2013 Champion can be picked up at a top price of 50/1 with Bet365 while Pat Perez is being talked up after a series of three top 20 finishes, including a solid 18th at The Masters. Perez is also at 50/1 with Bet365.
Harbour Town Golf Links is a relatively short par 71 at a shade over 7100 yards. Narrow, tree-lined Fairways and tiny greens require greater accuracy than most courses on the PGA Tour and that is the key Factor to bear in mind when picking a winner this week.
That brings us back to the names that we’ve already mentioned and in terms of a winner, it’s so tempting to opt for Luke Donald who has such a great record here. Donald has the perfect short game for the course and you can add in two third place finishes alongside those four runner ups.
McGirt is ranking sixth in terms of fairways hit and should be a better golfer for his first Masters experience while Hatton, who didn’t fare so well on debut at Augusta, is simply the highest ranked golfer here.
All of those are sound options for the top ten betting but if pushed to pick a winner I would back Brandt Snedeker and I’m a bit surprised that he isn’t the favourite for this event. 2014 Champion Kuchar has the better recent record but Sneds is a winner here too – albeit back in 2011.
- Snedeker for the win at 25/1 with Betfred is this RBC Heritage preview’s betting tip while the best of the Top Ten bets are Tyrrell Hatton at 11/4, Luke Donald at 4/1 and William McGirt at 5/1 – all with BetVictor.
