The odds aren't yet available for the RBC Canadian Open in 2021 (April 12-18). We'll have all the updates, Insights and news for the 2021 RBC Canadian Open. The odds are subject to change and as such will be updated as there are movements from the bookmakers. This page was last updated on May 25, 2020.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 RBC Canadian Open.
With a brilliant (-22) four day total - Rory Mcllroy won the 2019 RBC Canadian Open by seven strokes over Steve Lowry and Webb Simpson. After this being his first tournament in Canada - It won't be his last eh!
Defending champion Dustin Johnson is one of the favourites to win the 2019 event according to the outright PGA RBC Canadian Open odds. He starts at 6.50 and will be tough to beat after he won by three strokes at last year's event.
Johnson has been one of the most consistent players over the last 24 months and is fresh off a runner-up finish at the 2019 PGA Championship. While he has not taken home as many trophies as he would have liked, during his stay atop the overall World Golf Rankings, he is one of the steadiest golfers today.
Just behind Johnson, in the outright market, is new World #1 Brooks Koepka who finished ahead of Johnson at the PGA Championship and a player who has had an even better 24 months given his four PGA Major victories.
With 8.00 odds, he only needs to mirror his dominance during the first three rounds at Bethpage Black to claim his first RBC Canadian Open. Koepka missed the cut in 2018 but is tough to ignore during his 2019 visit to Canada.
Bettors see Rory McIlroy (11.00) high up the list on the Canadian Open betting odds list. Can he rise to the challenge at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club? All of the outright betting odds can be obtained through bet365 so check out the latest RBC bet365 odds via our extensive review.
Finding it difficult to pick a winner outright given the plethora of talent? There are other RBC betting lines available that might be more your style. While picking a player to finish in the top ten won't necessarily mean a huge payday, you'll still get great odds in a market where a win is just that little bit easier.
The top pick for this market is Dustin Johnson; simply because of solid consistency. He has finished in the top ten in eight of his last eleven tournaments starts. He presents great value with 1.58 best price odds at Spin Sports.
The winning margin at the RBC Canadian Open has been limited to three different outcomes over the last 29 years. The most common is one-stroke, which has occurred 13 times, followed by a playoff (9 times) and 3 strokes (7 times). The last time the RBC Open was decided by just 2 strokes was in 1989.
The value pick here given the historical statistics has to be the '3 strokes' option.
There are several other options for wagers at the RBC Canadian Open, as is the case with all PGA Tour and major tournaments around the world. It has been a long time (1954) since a Canadian won this event so we understand bettors being reluctant to select a Canuck to capture their National Championship.
Although they have opted to skip the 2019 RBC Canadian Open if you are looking for Jason Day Odds or Justin Rose's Odds you should review these players' exclusive content. That includes betting lines for their next Major.
The Canadian Open is held at a different venue each year and has also moved around on the PGA Tour calendar, so it is a lot more difficult to determine the likelihood of a winner based on previous results at the tournament. We've gone with the tried and tested Dustin Johnson as our RBC Canadian Open pick for 2019 because of his consistency, although he's no sure thing.
This is why we encourage live betting when looking at top golf tournaments. You can spend countless hours looking up pre-tournament statistics, average scores at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club, player form, the list goes on, but it's a totally different ball game once the tournament goes live and players start adapting to the conditions.
Wait & See
Our top tip is to hold off on the outright markets until you've at least seen your player in action. You'll find it a whole lot easier to gauge a player's performance and potential once he's hit the course once, and although your odds may decrease, it will be a much safer bet.
How Does the Tournament Work
The RBC Canadian Open is a stroke-play golf tournament where the lowest scoring player over four rounds is declared the winner.
Out of a field of 156 golfers - around half will be 'cut' after the first two rounds. Typically, the players eligible to continue to the final rounds will be in the top-50 on the leaderboard, or within ten strokes of the leader.
In the event that two or more players are tied at the end of the four rounds, a playoff will be enforced. This involves the leaders playing extra hole(s) in a sudden-death contest to determine the outright winner.
The Canadian Open has been played since 1904 and has had countless champions over the past century. The player who can claim to have won the event more than anyone else is American Leo Diegel, who won the event in 1924, 1925, 1928 and 1929. There have also been 3 three-time champions - Tommy Armour, Sam Snead and Lee Trevino who was a huge fan favourite.
The most successful Canadians to win their home tournament are Charles Murray, Albert Murray and Karl Keffer, who all won twice before the First World War. Surprisingly, only one other Canadian has won the Open. That's Pat Fletcher who, in 1954, was the last Canuck to win the RBC Championship.
