Will Zalatoris 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic Odds, History, Predictions & How to Watch
The 3M Open was won by the betting favorite Tony Finau last week, and now four other top-20 golfers in the world rankings join Finau at Detroit Golf Club for the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic.
With a stronger field this week, there are more big names and other top-level golfers looking to go low on the 7,370 yard par 72 course, which hosts the event for the fourth consecutive year. Winning scores the past two years have been -18 and -23 under par, and Detroit GC has wider fairways with an emphasis on short-irons and wedge play on approach and putting.
A number of players like Webb Simpson (125th) are more focused and looking to play well as they site near the cut line for the top 125 players in the FedEx Cup Standings who advance to the FedEx Cup Playoffs in two weeks.
So, naturally, FanDuel Sportsbook has all the odds and props available for the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic and players to watch and wager on for the tournament.

Will Zalatoris Rocket Mortgage Classic Prediction & Pick
Will Zalatoris is ranked No. 13 in the world and top-10 in the FedEx Cup Standings. But the 25-year-old star is still winless on the PGA Tour. His ball striking and tee-to-green game is elite, and he's hitting 70.3% of fairways to rank top-10 on Tour. Those strong stats and play have propelled him to eight top-10 finishes in 20 PGA Tour starts this season.
But Z's putting remains his Achilles heel. In this field, Zalatoris ranks No. 149 in Strokes Gained: Putting and 129 in Short Game stats. While he's still No. 3 in Birdies Gained and top-20 this season in birdie average, Zalatoris will need a better putting performance this week on a course where putting strength and low scores are needed.
Many pundits are counting on another strong performance from Zalatoris this week, and perhaps his breakthrough win on Tour. I'm not betting on it, and wouldn't bet on a top-10 or top-20 finish either.
