Top 6 Leaderboard Last Week (Odds)
These three will of course be popular options for bettors alike but our focus here will be on some of the potential big ROI players you could consider. If we look at the results of the Charles Schwab Challenge, six players finished in the top three and while Daniel Berger, who opened at +3500, took down the event. Here are how the six players finished along with their opening odds:
1. Daniel Berger (+3500)
2. Collin Morikawa (+2800)
3. Jason Korak (+500)
3. Bryson DeChambeau (+1100)
3. Xander Schauffele (+2000)
3. Justin Rose (+3500)
LONGSHOT ROI PICKS FOR RBC HERITAGE
Let’s take a look at some value players you can take a shot with ahead of Thursday’s RBC Heritage event.
Matt Kuchar (+4000)
It’s hard not to like Kuchar in this spot at the RBC Heritage. He’s had an immense amount of success at this event and has missed the cut only once back in 2003. When it comes to accolades, he’s won this event in 2014 and has six top 10s overall. He will be entering this week on a sour note, however, as he missed the cut at the Charles Schwab Challenge posting a 71 in round one and a 68 in round two.
Kuchar is more familiar with this course than anyone, as his 60 rounds played is tops amongst all the golfers. Stewart Cink is second on the list with 56 followed by Lucas Glover with 52. Kuchar has gained 1.76 strokes per round here at Harbour Town, which is the third-best mark amongst the players who have the most rounds played here. Luke Donald, with 44 rounds is at 2.16 and Jim Furyk is at 1.9.
Branden Grace (+5500)
Grace posted a strong start during the Charles Schwab Challenge, although you’d never know it from his final spot on the leaderboard at 19. From Thursday to Saturday, Grace posted three straight rounds of 66, before ended with a 73 in Round 4. He particularly struggled in the back nine, which ultimately lead to his quick demise on the final day.
Despite his late struggles, Grace has done well at the RBC Heritage, winning the event back in 2016. Back at that event, Grace started off off with a strong 66 in round one, struggled big time in round two with a 74 and then closed out the event in the final two rounds with a 69 and a 66 to take down the title. He’s played 16 rounds at Harbour Town and has gained 1.84 strokes per round. At his current odds, Grace at 55-1 look quite enticing, especially if he can find his form from early on at Charles Schwab.
C.T. Pan (+60000)
The defending champ didn’t have a great start to the return of the PGA Tour, missing the cut at Charles Schwab. Pan had a stellar final round last year, as his 67 put him 12 under and one stroke ahead of Kuchar. At Harbour Town, Pan has played 12 rounds and has gained 1.7 strokes per round. Amongst the field, that’s the 10th best mark overall but fifth best amongst players who have at least 10 rounds under their belt. His odds certainly classify him as a long shot but no one would fault you for putting some money down on the defending champion in this spot.
Who is the Public Betting On?

Previous RBC Heritage Winners
|Year||RBC Heritage Winner|
In the last 10 RBC Heritage tournaments, the only multiple-time winner is Jim Furyk. He won in 2010 and again in 2015. Patterns would indicate he could win again in 2020, but that’s quite unlikely. This year’s RBC Heritage will be much different given that it will be the second tournament after the coronavirus pandemic, so the field could be much more loaded.
