RBC Canadian Open tournament betting tips for this week. Read on for our expert tips for the RBC Canadian Open taking place at Hamilton Golf and Country Club.

RBC Canadian Open

There was no joy for us last week as all three of our selections bombed out at The Memorial, with not one of our three-off-the-tee giving us any kind of run for our money.

This week the PGA Tour moves to Canada for the RBC Canadian Open and for the first time in 30 years, Canada's national championship will be held in the month of June. And for the first time in just seven years and only the sixth time in the tournament's history it's being held at Hamilton Golf and Country Club.

This time next week we will see the start of the third major of the year with the US Open and backing short priced players a week before a major is always something that concerns me as the big guns will have one eye firmly on the big prize next week at Pebble Beach and that is certainly the case again this week.

Dustin Johnson won this event 12 months ago and the World number one heads the betting to defend his title at a general 6/1 and although he will certainly be in the mix at the weekend he is one player that will want to go one better than his runner-up finish at both this year's Masters and PGA Championship and the priority will be the US Open rather than a win this weekend.

Next in the betting at 7/1 is PGA Champion Brooks Koepke at 7/1 and the four time major winner will be a very popular choice with punters to mark his return since his win at Bethpage Black with a success again this week, but like DJ he will be looking to make history next week at Pebble Beach and win his third consecutive US Open title and he may look at this tournament to get everything finely tuned ahead of an assault on another major.

Three From The Tee

Scott Piercy @ 33/1 Ladbrokes

The last player to win at Hamilton G&C was SCOTT PIERCY in 2012 and the 40 year-old is the man to be on again this week at the general price of 33/1 which is available with most bookies.

Piercy was my tip a fortnight ago at the Colonial and the Las Vegan was well in contention until a poor back nine on the final round  saw him fall down the leader-board and end up in a tie for 19th place. That was still a good week and was his 10th top 20 finish of the season and although he is yet to win in 2019, he was runner-up at the Byron Nelson at the start of last month and was third at The Heritage in April and has really impressed this season and he fits the profile of a potential winner this week.

Brandt Snedeker @ 40/1 William Hill

Tour veteran BRANDT SNEDEKER arrives in Canada on the back of two decent showings in his last two starts and at the general 40/1 with most bookies the 38 year-old is worth considering to win his 10th PGA title this week.

Snedeker, finished in 19th in his last start at Colonial which was impressive considering he started with a very poor opening round and at Bethpage at the PGA Championship last month he again finished inside the top 20 with a 16th finish, which again was after a slow start on the Thursday.  Snedeker won this title in 2013 and has five top 10s in his eight appearances and if he can get off to a fast start then we know he closes well and he is one to keep on your side at a nice price.

Mackenzie Hughes @ 125/1 bet365
* Odds correct at 11:41 BST on 4/6/2019

There are not many Canadian's who have a chance of winning their home tournament but MACKENZIE HUGHES could be the first Canadian to win this event since Pat Fletcher in 1954.

Hughes has been playing very well this season and arrives at his home event after a impressive 8th finish at Colonial and with a lot of players prepping their game ahead of next week the 28 year-old will be 100 per cent focused on this week and has the packed galleries full support and also the huge benefit of playing Hamilton G&C as he is a Hamilton native and this is his home track and at 125/1 with a number of layers he's well worth a small each-way play.
