If you want a stacked Sunday leaderboard at a golf tournament, then you have everything you could ever hope for at this week’s RBC Canadian Open.
C.T. Pan enters the final round of the event at 14-under par, but then six (!!) golfers are sitting at T2, two strokes back from Pan. That list of golfers includes Rory McIlroy, who is the back-to-back defending champion at the event.
Tommy Fleetwood, Mark Hubbard, Justin Rose, Harry Higgs, and Andrew Novak round out the list of golfers sitting two strokes back from the lead.
Then, there are two Canadians in Nick Taylor and Corey Conners who are sitting at T8 and 10th place respectively. No Canadian has won the event since the early 1950’s.
So, strap in. We have an exciting day of golf ahead of us.
Let’s dive into the live odds to win the Canadian Open and then I’ll give you my best bet to win it today.

With how stacked the leaderboard with big names, you’re probably expecting me to suggest to bet on Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, or Tommy Fleetwood before the final round, but no.
Instead, I’m going to recommend a bet on Mark Hubbard at +1000.
He’s certainly not the most known name in contention on Sunday, but there’s one thing I’ve noticed through the first three rounds that’s going to give him a big edge today. He’s gaining +2.71 strokes on the field per round with his approach game, the best in the entire field throughout this tournament.
Good iron play leads to birdie opportunities at best and safe pars at worst.
He’s also having an uncharacteristically good tournament with his putting, gaining +1.63 strokes per round, which is something we don’t often see from Hubbard.
If he can figure out his driver, where he’s losing -0.89 strokes per round on the field, while keeping up the rest of his fantastic play, he’s going to find himself with a chance to win late in today’s round.
At 10/1, I think that’s a great price on a live winner today.
