Golf Betting Tips: Best bets for the RBC Heritage

We make our winner, each-way and outside picks for the first PGA Tour event after the Masters, and offer a top-five boost for an Australian rising star.

Back to win: Cameron Smith – {ODDS:261383465:28/1}

Smith finished fifth at the Masters last weekend alongside major champions Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson and Bubba Watson, and the 24-year-old has now placed inside the top five in back-to-back events.

He closed with a stellar 66, which was slightly overshadowed by Jordan Spieth’s ridiculous 64, and birdied seven of the back nine on Sunday.

The Australian has climbed 85 places in the world rankings over the past year, and already has a PGA Tour win to his name after triumphing at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans – a pairs event – last May.

Smith has finished inside the top 20 in 11 of his last 14 starts, and looks nailed-on to improve upon his best finish at the RBC Heritage – a T15 in 2015.

He’s a solid bet to win, and can also be backed for a top-five spot at our boosted price of {ODDS:xxxxxxxxx:xx/x}.

Each-way shout: Bryson DeChambeau – {ODDS:261383488:40/1}

DeChambeau just missed out on his second career win last month, finishing second behind McIlroy at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The flat-cap-wearing American now has two top-fives in his last six starts, having picked up a T5 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February.

DeChambeau’s having a fine season, ranking 13th in shots gained off the tee and 32nd in approach play on the PGA Tour.

His T4 at Hilton Head two years ago shows that he can compete at this event, and he’s a nice each-way bet at a pretty generous price.

Outside shot: Luke Donald – {ODDS:261383527:50/1}

It rarely makes sense to back a player who’s missed four cuts out of six, but that’s exactly what we’re doing with Donald this week.

The Englishman’s having a poor year, but he’s just got to be backed whenever he plays in the Heritage.

His history at this course is staggering, with five runner-up finishes and two T3s in his last nine starts at Hilton Head.

Donald’s poor form isn’t much of a concern, given that his second-place here last year came after a T69 at the Houston Open and a missed cut at the Valspar Championship. It’d be no surprise if he contends yet again this weekend.
