2024 RBC Canadian Open Best Matchups and Placement Props

Rory McIlroy is the overwhelming favorite to win the 2024 RBC Canadian Open. According to DraftKings, McIlroy is a +360 favorite to be in the winner's circle on Sunday afternoon. Tommy Fleetwood, Sahith Theegala, and Corey Connors are also expected to be in the mix.

Get ready for the 2024 RBC Canadian Open by checking out our betting preview! We'll dive into the best matchups and top placement props. Good luck, folks!

H2H: Tommy Fleetwood (-110) OVER Alex Noren

Fleetwood has participated in the RBC Canadian Open twice in the last 5 tournaments. He has fared extremely well in both. He secured 6th place back in 2018 and, more recently, was runner-up last year.

He was 26th 2 weeks ago at the PGA Championship and 13th at the Wells Fargo prior to that. He is 22mmd on Tour in total driving and 3rd in driving accuracy. He should have consistent looks on all his approaches this week.

He faces Alex Noren, who finished 63rd in 2019, which was his lone start at the RBC. He is outside the Top 120 on Tour in driving distance but has been great at scrambling this season to date. We believe Fleetwood will be in contention late on Sunday while Noren will be a handful of groups back.

H2H: Nick Taylor (+120) OVER Ryo Hisatsune

Canadian, Nick Taylor, loves playing on his home soil. He was the winner of this event last year and had 2 Top 30 finishes in the 2 starts before that.

He did miss the cut at the PGA in his latest start but already has a win this season to go with his four Top 25s. Ryo also missed his last cut, which came at the Charles Schwab and has missed 6 cuts on is 15 starts this season.

This matchup could finish on Friday afternoon if Ryo continues to play the way he has recently. We will happily take the defending champion at plus money here.

Top 40 Finish: CT Pan (+175 at FanDuel)

Pan has 4 Top 40 finishes this season to date. His stats are not jumping off the page so far this season, but he does have a good history in this event. He has 2

starts here and was 14th back in 2017 but more recently finished 3rd last year behind Fleetwood and Taylor. We like him to keep his head above water this weekend and sneak out another Top 40.

Top 40 Finish: Charley Hoffman (+175 at FanDuel)

Hoffman got off to a hot start last week when he led the field on Day one of the Charles Schwab Classic. However, he faltered the rest of the way and barely finished in the Top 50.

Prior to that, he had 2 Top 15 finishes in his 3 starts. He had been playing solid golf and it looked like that would continue after being round 1 leader.

He has 3 starts over the last 5 RBCs and has finished no worse than 35th. We like him here getting the plus money and hope he can string together a couple of good rounds in this one.

Top 40 Finish: Justin Lower (+175 at FanDuel)

This is likely our riskiest play. Lower has missed back-to-back cuts at Myrtle and then at Schwab but he does have Top 40 finishes in half of his events this season.

He has played the RBC in the last 2 seasons and finished 35th and 25th respectively. We are banking on him getting back on track again here in Canada and getting back to his Top 40 ways. Best of luck this weekend!
