5 prop bets for the 2023 RBC Heritage including Justin Thomas or Max Homa to win at 14/1

The annual Masters hangover is a bit more bearable this year thanks to the new designated events on the PGA Tour, as world No. 1 Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler, defending champion Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa lead the best field in the history of the RBC Heritage.

Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is different than the other venues we’ve seen host these star-studded events so far this season. It demands precision, patience and does a fantastic job of minimizing the advantage bombers have off the tee.

Let’s jump onto five prop bets for the RBC Heritage, starting with a triple chance to win that includes two names we mentioned in our expert picks story on Tuesday.

Listen to this week’s betting preview below:

Collin Morikawa, Cameron Young or Tony Finau to win: +550

This golf course fits Morikawa’s game perfectly, Young finished T-3 here last season and Finau hasn’t finished outside the top 30 since Mayakoba in November.

Winning margin, 1 stroke: +225

Spieth said Tuesday he believes the leaderboard will be congested this week, and I trust the Texan.

Also, two of the last four RBC Heritages have been won by one stroke and two of the last five have been decided by a playoff. It’s rare to see someone run away with this one.

Justin Thomas or Max Homa to win: +1400

Thomas is coming off an MC at the Masters while Homa tied for 43rd. You could call this “buying the dip.” Having these two names together on a double chance at 14/1 is absurd.

JT finished eighth here in 2020.

Shane Lowry to finish inside top 20: +160

Before you complain, yes, I know this isn’t technically a prop bet. But when you see a player at +160 for a top 20 who has finished inside the top 8 here three of the last four years, you take it.

Cameron Young to win group (Spieth, Homa, Hovland, Finau): +300

Yes, this group is loaded. Yes, Young is the only one who hasn’t yet won on Tour. However, his new looper Paul Tesori deeply understands Harbour Town (Webb Simpson has four top 10s and a win here). Also, Young tied for third in ’22.
