With the 2021 Masters Championships now a thing of the past, it’s time to look ahead on the PGA Tour. One week after Japanese star Hideki Matsuyama took his first career green jacket, the PGA Tour heads to Hilton Head, South Carolina for the 2021 RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina. This annual star-studded event tees off Thursday, April 15. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming event so you can bet against their Golf odds.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is the prohibitive favorite at +1000 while defending champion and 2013 runner-up Webb Simpson is next at +1200. A year ago, now ninth in the Official Golf World Rankings (OGWR), Simpson overcame a three-hour weather delay last year to record five birdies in six holes on the back nine on the final day to get the one shot win over Abraham Ancer.
“It was a crazy day,” Simpson said of his final round a year ago. “I didn’t get it going until the 12th and then the putts started going in and I started getting confident. It’s amazing to be standing here right now.”
Simpson finished a solid T12 in the Masters and has recorded four straight Top-16 finishes in this event, including last year’s victory.
World No. 10 Patrick Cantlay is third on the odds leaderboard despite missing the cut in two of his last three outings, including at the recently completed Masters. 24-year-old world No. 4 Collin Morikawa comes into this tournament fresh off a solid T18 finish in the Masters after winning the WGC-Dell Technologies Workday Championship on Feb. 28.
28-year-old Floridian Daniel Berger is 16th in the OGWR and should be hungry after having his four tournament run of Top-35 finishes snapped by missing the cut at this past weekend’s Masters.
A player to really keep an eye on this coming weekend is a player that made my pick at the 2021 Masters look phenomenal. 27th in the OGWR, 24-year-old Californian Will Zalatoris was phenomenal in finishing second in his Masters debut. Zalatoris has recorded six straight finishes of T28 or better and has the kind of game to win anywhere.
