The next step on the PGA Tour is the RSM Classic at Sea Island Golf Club in Georgia, where defending champion Robert Streb is an excellent wager.
Golf betting markets have the two-time RSM Classic champion at mammoth odds to win. He loves the course, but there are over 100 players searching for victory.
Heading the market are Webb Simpson and Scottie Scheffler, with the latter still seeking his first PGA Tour victory after going close last week.
Streb Loves RSM
We can’t believe the odds for Robert Streb, who is not only a two-time winner, but he’s playing excellent golf.
The 2014 and 2020 winner finished T-7 at the Houston Open last week, which is excellent to see ahead of his favorite tournament. He closed with a -5 on Sunday to rocket up the leaderboard and we’re confident of his chances.

The underrated 34-year-old also recorded a T-9 at the CJ Cup and a T-27 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He’s playing cracking golf and the sportsbook is offering +7000.
We are gobsmacked by the odds. We understand that he’s not a household name to casual golf bettors, but backing players who love the course is a good way to make money.
He shot -11 at the CJ Cup, so he can go low. Those types of scores are needed to win this week, so we’re happy to have him on our tickets.
Pick: Robert Streb +7000
Kisner Holds Record
Kevin Kisner holds the tournament record of -22 when winning in 2015 and we like his chances of getting back to that form.
It has been a poor start to the season for the American after finishing T-54 at the CJ Cup and then missing the cut at the Shriners.
His problems have been approach shots and his short game. He ranks 217th in strokes gained approaching the green and 142nd in strokes gained around the green.
Those statistics are concerning, but he knows Sea Island Golf Club well so we’re banking on him improving his form.
The four-time winner has been busy working for the Kisner Foundation, which focuses on the physical and mental health of children. Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas have just donated, so it’s going well.
Bettors could cash in with Kisner, who is +4000 with betting online markets. It’s a fair price for a quality golfer who has plenty of incentive to play well.
Pick: Kevin Kisner +3500
Is it Time for Scheffler?
We thought Scottie Scheffler was going to score an overdue win in the Houston Open after holding an overnight lead on Saturday. However, he’ll need to wait at least another week.
The U.S. Ryder Cup member wasn’t able to close it out in a bunched finish, which saw Jason Kokrak secure the win. Scheffler will be left to ponder his decisions on the final day, but the win is coming.
“I’ll take from this I felt like I played a lot of good golf this week without really my best stuff,” Scheffler told the Golf Channel. “I really felt uncomfortable with my ball-striking going into the week, but I gave myself a chance to win here in the end, I put myself in position on Sunday. I’d say today I just probably didn’t make enough putts. Outside of that, I definitely played good enough to win.”
It can take a while before overdue players win, but just like Sergio Garcia at the Masters, it’s bound to happen eventually.
Bettors will have to take +1400 for a player without a PGA Tour win, but those odds are much better than you’ll get on Sunday if he’s in contention.
Pick: Scottie Scheffler +1400
Glover to Pop Up
Every so often Lucas Glover produces the goods and wins. The 42-year-old is a four-time PGA Tour winner, with his most recent victory coming at the 2021 John Deere Classic.
The 2009 U.S. Open winner has career wins in 2005, 2009, 2011 and 2019. He’s not winning often, but given the odds available with bookmakers, we’re prepared to take the risk.
Glover is paying +12500 to win the RSM Classic. That’s a slightly lower price than when we tipped Phil Mickelson to win the PGA Championship (+22500), so we’re looking for another big result.
Include Glover in your golf selections for a bit of fun.
