RBC Heritage 2024 Golf Odds Guide, Predictions, Picks & Betting Preview: 22/1 Tip

Collin MorikawaThe RBC Heritage traditionally follows the Masters as the PGA Tour makes its way to South Carolina. The event usually carries a mixed-quality field, with many top players taking a break after the season’s first major, while others continue to compete.

The RBC Heritage takes place at the stunning links course on Hilton Head Island, so a great spectacle is guaranteed, whoever takes part. In 2024, many of the world’s top 10 golfers are in action, despite the late withdrawal of Viktor Hovland, so there is depth of quality to the field.

Last time out at the US Masters, we landed just one top 10 finish pick as Collin Morikawa tied for third. It wasn’t enough for an overall profit, but we’ve been on a good run recently, and we’ll aim to continue this week with our RBC Heritage predictions and betting picks for this preview.

Fresh off the back of his second US Masters victory, world number one Scottie Scheffler is scheduled to tee it up in South Carolina on Thursday. Scheffler is dominating golf in the way that we haven’t seen since Tiger Woods was in his prime and he is available at best industry odds of just 4/1.

There are dangers in backing Scottie at such a low price. His appearance is dependent on his wife who is poised to go into labor. He will withdraw if the birth is imminent and, if he does play, he may be distracted by events at home.

Behind the market leader, Xander Schauffele is next at a best of 12/1. He finished fourth in this tournament last year and had a solid four days at the Masters, ending up in a solo eighth.

Next up are Rory McIlroy and Ludvig Aberg who slot in as joint third favorites at a top price of 14/1. McIlroy never looked like challenging at Augusta last week, but Aberg enjoyed a productive four days, finishing in a solo second place behind Scheffler.

Moving through the chasing section, Patrick Cantlay is quoted at 16/1, followed by Collin Morikawa and Tommy Fleetwood who are both available at 20/1. Morikawa landed that tie for third on Sunday and has a good record and scoring average in this event. Fleetwood also tied for third and has been on a consistent run of form.

Max Homa and Matt Fitzpatrick are next at 25/1. Fitzpatrick is the defending RBC Heritage champion, having defeated Jordan Spieth in a playoff last year. Homa is yet another player who finished in a tie for third at Augusta.

Other players to mention before we move to the outsiders include Will Zalatoris and Cameron Young at 28/1, followed by Jordan Spieth and Wyndham Clark at 33/1.

Spieth was narrowly edged out by Matt Fitzpatrick 12 months ago and he came into the RBC Heritage as the defending champion. His win in 2022 means he has the best recent record of any golfer in this year’s field.

The underdogs start at a relatively low 35/1 this week. Both Sahith Theegala and Si Woo Kim can be found at those odds and they are followed by Russell Henley at a best of 40/1. Kim was a runner-up here in 2018, having lost out in a playoff to Satoshi Kodaira.

Shane Lowry is next at 45/1 while a clutch of golfers, including Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, Sam Burns and Brian Harman, are all available this week at 50/1. Lowry has good, relevant stats and has a strong record in this tournament with three top 10 finishes since 2019. Brian Harman has four top 20 finishes here, including a best of a tie for seventh 12 months ago.

Other players to mention in this outsider section include Jason Day at 55/1, Harris English at 66/1, Cam Davis at 66/1, Sepp Straka at 70/1, Adam Hadwin at 100/1 and Stephan Jaeger at 100/1.

Course & Betting Trends for RBC Heritage 2024 with Predictions & Picks for this Preview

Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head Island in South Carolina is the regular home for the RBC Heritage. It is a par 71 course, with regulation length at just under 7,200 yards, and will offer all the unique challenges that links golf provides.

Although current weather forecasts suggest some rain on Sunday, we are expecting calm conditions without too much wind across the four days.

Driving accuracy has been a key stat here in recent years, although wayward tee shots aren’t always punished. The only rough on the course measures at just over an inch. Greens in Regulation can also be useful but strong putting is often the deciding factor.

One player in good all-round touch is Collin Morikawa who has form and relevant stats coming into Thursday. A third at the Masters should also give him a confidence boost after a mixed run.

Morikawa for the win is the main tip along with three additional top 10 finish selections. If Scottie Scheffler does withdraw, the odds for the rest of the field should shorten, so it could be best to get on early for the 2024 RBC Heritage. These are the golf betting picks and predictions for this preview:

  • Collin Morikawa to win at best odds of +2200 (22/1) with BetOnline. He is 20/1 with Bovada and EveryGame.
  • Top 10 Finish Picks (odds with BetOnline, who are longest on all golfers): Collin Morikawa (+200), Cameron Young (+250), Russell Henley (+250) and Tony Finau (+350).
