The 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic is scheduled to be held between June 29 and July 2 at the Detroit Golf Club, Michigan. The PGA Tour event will see a rather exciting field with high levels of talent as several pro golfers make their tournament debut.

Defending champion Tony Finau will be back once again looking to pick up a win. Major champions Justin Thomas and Colin Morikawa will also be making their debut at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Playing for a prize purse of almost $9 million, there are several favorites this year.

Needless to say, Tony Finau is the biggest favorite to win at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. According to Caesars Sportsbook, Finau is the 21-1 favorite to win at the event. However, it will be a high-pressure event for Tony Finau, who has not defended a title before.

Other notable names who are favorites include Justin Thomas (14-1), Rickie Fowler (14-1), Collin Morikawa (14-1) and Max Homa (18-1). Expert Sia Najed of SportsLine, however, thinks that Max Homa might fade away in this tournament.

Keegan Bradley, who won the Travelers championship last week, is another favorite to win by 28-1. If he can carry on the momentum from his previous performance, Bradley is a serious contender.

According to Mike McClure of Sportsline, Harris English is a 40-1 longshot and favorite to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic or finish at the top of the leaderboard.
