The 2020 Masters has concluded, and Dustin Johnson has become the latest golfer to earn the right to wear the coveted green jacket.
With the majority of the top talent on the PGA Tour taking a breather this week after the action at Augusta National, the RSM Classic at Sea Island Resort in Saint Simons Island, Georgia, is next up from November 19-22.
When it comes to odds on which golfers have the best chance to win the RSM Classic, Bovada has you covered. Webb Simpson is the undisputed +850 favorite, followed by Sungjae Im (+1800), Tyrrell Hatton (+1800), Harris English (+2200) and Matthew Fitzpatrick (+2500) in the top five.
Here’s a look at the golfers with the likeliest odds to emerge triumphant in Georgia this week:

Can Duncan Go Back to Back?
Last year, Tyler Duncan edged Simpson in a playoff to earn his first PGA Tour title at the 2019 RSM Classic. Duncan closed with a 25-foot birdie to force a playoff, where he ended up triumphing on the second extra hole.
Both men made pars on the first playoff hole but Duncan’s 15-foot birdie putt was the difference-maker on No. 2. His closing 65 was tied for the round of the day.
Sebastian Munoz, Brendon Todd and Henrik Norlander, Scottie Scheffler and KH Lee rounded out the top five finishes. If you think Duncan can recapture the magic he had on display at last year’s tournament, he’s an incredibly appealing pre-tournament wager at his +9000 odds.
RSM Classic Has Been A Haven For First-Time Winners
When it comes to hot spots for professional golfers to pick up their first victory on the tour, the RSM Classic is an excellent venue. Including Duncan, five of the 10 RSM Classic champions made the tournament their first PGA Tour win.
One potential first-time winner to look out for in this year’s field is Davis Thompson. Thompson is playing on the PGA Tour for the third time this year after participating in the Puerto Rico Open and the U.S. Open.
Thompson, who led briefly during the first round of the U.S. Open, is the top-ranked amateur in the world and is playing in his second RSM Classic. He finished last year’s tournament in a tie for 23rd place at -10. The American is a +15000 long shot to win his first event on the PGA Tour.
Here’s a helpful guide to some of the different betting options for the RSM Classic to help you put some extra cash in your pocket while wagering on golf.
Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available at weekly tournaments. The RSM Classic is no different.
Sportsbooks are offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on which players from specific countries will have the lowest score, to name a few.
Like other sports, betting on props is a fun and unique way to enhance your golf gambling experience.
Live Betting is arguably one of the most exciting ways to bet on golf. If the player you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the RSM Classic, you can bet on another golfer as the days go by and have another stake in the game.
If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are. We’ve seen this happen multiple times in the PGA Tour’s Return to Golf, as multiple tournaments have gone to a playoff.
