Bettors also aim for the top of the odds list, with Patrick Cantlay, Will Zalatoris and Max Homa also among the betting favorites and golfers with the most bets for the Rocket Mortgage.
Additionally, defending Rocket Mortgage champion Cam Davis and last week’s winner Tony Finau are attracting a lot of attention.
Veteran Kevin Kisner also deserves a mention. His form is excellent, with a T-6 in the Travelers Championship and a T-21 in the Open Championship in his last two starts, and he has consecutive top-10 finishes at Detroit Golf Club for the past two years achieved.
Kisner’s odds of winning the Rocket mortgage have also dropped from +4000 to +3500.
Remarkable line movement
- Kevin Kisner opened +4000 to +3500
- Si Woo Kim opened +6600 to +5000
- Cameron Champ opened +6600 to +5000
- Beau Hossler opened +17500 to +15000
- Max Homa opened +2200 to +2500
- Patrick Cantlay opened +900 to +1000
- Tony Finau opened +1400 to +1600
- Maverick McNealy opened +3300 to +4000
- Denny McCarthy opened +3300 to +4000
Here are the longshots that get the biggest grip:
- Rickie Fowler (+10000)
- Callum Tarren (+8000)
- Beau Hossler (+15000)
- Kurt Kitayama (+10000)
- Wyndham Clark (+8000)
- Trey Mullinax (+15000)
Cameron Young’s popularity among bettors is likely to have seen the odds for Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Tony Finau and Maverick McNealy soar. As a more attractive number could lure potential bettors away from Young and onto one of the other favourites.
Further down the odds list, Rickie Fowler’s popularity is again notable. The five-time PGA Tour winner has competed in six of his last seven events over the weekend, but he also has a T-21 result during the aforementioned run.
Similarly, Beau Hossler continues to attract weekly action despite missing the cut at his last two events and still not having a tour win on his resume.
