Next stop on the PGA Tour - Georgia for the RSM Classic at Sea Island. Though a lighter field this week, this week presents another opportunity to snatch some valuable FedEx Cup points early on in the season. 

The field is headlined by a few top-ranked players like Louis Oosthuizen, Harris English, and Scottie Scheffler. 

With the tournament underway, let's look at the live odds to win the 2021 RSM Classic.

RSM Classic pre-tournament favorites

Coming into the week, OWGR No. 17 Scottie Scheffler and OWGR No. 26 Webb Simpson sit atop the board as betting co-favorites to win the 2021 RSM Classic (+1,200). Scheffler enters the week on a heater with a T2 finish at the Houston Open last week and a solo fourth finish the week prior at the World Wide Technology Championship. He seems to be getting closer and closer to breaking through and earning his first win on Tour. Meanwhile, Simpson hasn't played since his T14 finish at The CJ Cup @ Summit in mid-October.

Behind the two co-favorites is the Australian, Cameron Smith at +1,600. Smith finished T15 last week in Houston and is always a threat to contend and win, especially in weaker fields. 

Following Smith is Louis Oosthuizen (+2,200), who's coming off a year packed full with Top-5 finishes (especially in majors). Louis has been a model of consistency over the past year, and though he hasn't had great results the past couple of months, could easily find his game this week in Georgia. 

Below is Corey Connors and Harris English (+2,500), as well as Russell Henley (+2,800).

Last year's winner, Robert Streb, is available at +6,600 to defend his 2020 RSM Classic title. He's won this event twice and is coming off a T7 finish last week in Houston. Don't sleep on Streb. 

Where is the 2021 RSM Classic played?

The RSM Classic is played at the Sea Island Golf Club in Saint Simons Island, Georgia. The tournament is played on the club's two courses: the Seaside Course, which is a par-70, 7,005-yard course, and the Plantation Course, a par-72, 7,160-yard course. 

Who won the RSM Classic in 2020?

Robert Streb won this event for the second time in 2020 with a 19-under 263, beating out Kevin Kisner in a two-hole playoff. 

What is the RSM Classic payout in 2021?

The RSM Classic purse for 2021 is $7.2 million, with $1.296 million going to the winner.

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.
