While the field was a little lighter, the golf odds were plentiful on the board for the Rocket Mortgage Classic, which was held at Detroit Golf Club in Michigan from July 2-5. This was the second year of the event with this tournament replacing the Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour in 2019.
Here were the PGA Tour odds to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic for the top golfers in the field.
Who was the Favorite to win the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic?
Bryson DeChambeau was the betting favorite on the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic odds board at +650. Next up was Webb Simpson (+1,100), Tyrrell Hatton and Patrick Reed (both listed at +1,600). But it was DeChambeau all the way. He had little value all weekend thanks to another strong start, and ended up winning in dominating fashion, overpowering Detroit GC on Sunday to win by three strokes.
It was a hard pill to swallow for anyone who had a pre-tournament ticket on Matthew Wolff. The 21-year-old was the betting favorite heading into Sunday, holding a three-stroke lead and was roughly +10,000 to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic before the tournamnet. Other top golfers such as Viktor Hovland (+2,200) and Rickie Fowler (+3,300) also had solid tournaments.

How To Bet On PGA Tour Odds
The most popular way to bet on golf is by simply picking the winner, which is also referred to as outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, however. Some of the more popular markets include head-to-head betting, where sportsbooks pair up two golfers and you simply choose who you think will have the lower score over the course of the weekend or for one round only.
There are also 3-way betting markets (choose the best golfer among three choices) and group betting (choose the best golfer amongst a group of players).
Other ways to wager include Top-5/Top-10/Top-20 finish, top golfer by nationality, to make the cut/to not make the cut, and the leader after each round. Then, of course, there's the popular prop bet of whether or not there will be a hole in one at the tournament.
