2024 RBC Heritage odds, field: Surprising PGA picks, predictions from proven model that’s nailed 11 majors

Max Homa found himself tied atop the leaderboards after the first two days of the Masters and in a position to potentially capture his first major championship. That was until Scottie Scheffler reminded the world why he’s the No. 1 ranked golfer en route to winning the 2024 Masters. Homa, however, still had a strong weekend, finishing T-3. The 33-year-old looks to build off his best finish of the 2024 PGA Tour season at the 2024 RBC Heritage, which tees off on Thursday, April 18 from Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C. Homa struggled and missed the cut last year at Harbour Town Golf Link, so should you avoid him in 2024 RBC Heritage bets, or will a top-three finish at the Masters lead make him a value at 22-1 in the latest 2024 RBC Heritage odds?

Scheffler is the 18-5 favorite to win the RBC Heritage 2024 after claiming his second green jacket. Xander Schauffle follows at 10-1 with Rory McIlroy (11-1) and Ludvig Aberg (12-1) next on the PGA odds board. Before locking in your 2024 RBC Heritage picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up almost $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model correctly predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2024 Masters, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and The Players Championship this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned nearly $1,000.

The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm’s second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022.

In addition, McClure’s best bets included Nick Taylor (70-1) winning the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic.

This same model has also nailed a whopping 11 majors entering the weekend and hit the Masters three straight years. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the RBC Heritage 2024 field is finalized, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2024 RBC Heritage predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 RBC Heritage: Schauffele, a seven-time winner on the PGA Tour and one of the top favorites, struggles this week and doesn’t even crack the top five. Schauffele has been red-hot in recent weeks, finishing inside the top 10 in four of his last five starts on the PGA Tour. He’s coming off an eighth-place finish at the Masters and secured a runner-up showing at The Players Championship in March.

However, Schauffele has struggled with his putting this season and hasn’t won a PGA Tour event since 2022. The 30-year-old enters this week’s event ranked 59th in putts per round (28.68), 79th in strokes gained: putting (0.117) and 80th in one-putt percentage (40.14%). Harbour Town places a premium on putting, which doesn’t bode well for Schauffele’s chances to finish on top of the leaderboard this week. 

Another surprise: Jordan Spieth, a 30-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Spieth has struggled lately, missing the cut in three of his last four tournaments including last weekend’s Masters. After shooting an opening round 79, Spieth rallied with a 74 in his second round, however, it wasn’t enough to salvage a poor first day. But Spieth finished T-10 at the Valero Texas Open the week before the Masters and this weekend won’t have as many of the sport’s top players as the Masters.

If there’s one tournament Spieth should have circled on his calendar each year, it’s the RBC Heritage. Spieth won the RBC Heritage in 2022, defeating Patrick Cantlay in a playoff, and forced a playoff at last year’s RBC Heritage before finishing second behind Matt Fitzpatrick. He made the cut in all seven of his appearances at Harbour Town Golf Links and after finishing as the co-leader after 72 holes in each of the last two years, the model projects strong value in Spieth at 30-1 odds on a course and event he thrives at. See who else to pick here.
