Top Golf Betting Picks and Favorites for the RBC Canadian Open

Written by on July 25, 2017

Golf fans around the world are probably still a little breathless after the amazing finish to the British Open that saw Jordan Spieth finish with a flourish to pass Matt Kuchar in the final few holes last Sunday afternoon. As is always the case on the PGA Tour, there is little time for reflection, as a new event is always just a few days away. The next stop for the pros will be at the famed Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario, where the field will be going after the RBC Canadian Open crown. There are some big names set to tee off starting this Thursday, July 27, and as always, there are some definite favorites on the betting board. We will take a bit of a closer look at who those players are, and we will also go out on a limb and make a pick. You still have a couple of days before betting closes on the opening round, so get your golf betting wagers in as soon as possible.

A Closer Look At The Top Golf Betting Picks and Favorites for the RBC Canadian Open


Dustin Johnson (+550)

Whenever the #1 player in a world enters a tournament, he is always listed as the favorite. This is probably how it will remain until someone can knock him off his lofty perch. In fairness, Dustin Johnson has certainly earned the right to be the darling of the bookies, as he has 3 tour wins this season, as well as 6 top 10 finishes, and over $6 million in earnings. That said, he has missed the cut in 2 of his last 3 tournaments, and was a disappointing 54th in the Open last weekend. Johnson may be the favorite here for the RBC Canadian Open, but recent forms suggests we look elsewhere for a winner.

Matt Kuchar (+800)

Kuchar may not have any wins on the tour this season, but he came ever so close to hoisting the Claret Jug last weekend, and would have had it not been for a brilliant final round by Jordan Spieth. If golf history has shown us anything, it’s that the top players often very quickly rebound from disappointment, and if that is the case, then look for Kuchar to put in another solid 4 rounds this coming weekend. He is my pick to finish as the RBC Canadian Open champion when all is said and done on Sunday.

Brandt Snedeker (+2000)

After the top two favorites for this tournament, we see quite a drop off in price, which means there is a real chance to make some money here if you can come up with the winner. Snedeker certainly appears to be a very solid pick at an exceptional price, especially when you consider that he has 8 total career wins on the tour. He does not have any wins this season, but has been around the top 10 a few times, and needs to be considered a serious threat against a group that is certainly there for the taking. Charley Hoffman will find a way to stick around among the leaders for the RBC Canadian Open.

Charley Hoffman (+2000)

Hoffman is another golfer who does not have a tour win this season, but he does have 6 top 10 finishes to his name. He has also done well in the last couple of majors, finishing in the top 20 at the Open last weekend, and landing in the top 10 in the US Open earlier this season. Charley Hoffman always seems to find a way to stick around among the leaders, and if he can remain consistent though his 4 rounds in Ontario this weekend, he should be lurking around the top 5.

Bubba Watson (+2300)

Always a fan favorite, Bubba Watson always has a large group following him whenever he plays, but he has failed to really deliver the goods this season. He does have a trio of top 10 finishes to his name this season, but consistency has proven to be an issue. While this is still a big tournament, it does pale in comparison to some of the other larger events on the tour, which may allow Watson to relax and put in a solid performance. Definitely a decent bet at a longer price.
