Rocket Mortgage Classic Golf Betting Tips - Fowler To Blast Off in Detroit

Rickie Fowler looks overpriced at the Rocket Mortgage Classic on a Detroit golf course that fits his game

This is the 2nd edition of the Rocket Mortgage Classic - a low scoring birdie fest won with a blitzing by Nate Lashley last year on a score of minus 25. The field is the 1st since the restart that has been thinned out, and the market is a potentially exploitable one.

Hopefully the leaderboard won't be so bunched as the last few weeks. The course is a more straightforward test than the 3 tricked up renewals we've seen on the new schedule, and Bryson is now a worthy favourite on a track where we will get to see the real benefit of his new power off the tee. Dustin Johnson won at a big price (relatively speaking) and I'm looking to attack this angle here with top names supposedly out of form a little bit inflated in the market.
