The PGA Tour shifts to the Motor City this week as defending champ Bryson DeChambeau headlines the field at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

DeChambeau smashed his way to a three-shot win a year ago, and now he's back at Detroit Golf Club as a clear betting favorite to take on a field that includes reigning major champions Hideki Matsuyama and Phil Mickelson. The tournament is in its third year of existence, and it should take another score deep into red figures to lift the trophy on a course that has been soaked by rain and has few defenses against the bomb-and-gouge strategy employed by DeChambeau and others.

We've got all the analysis and breakdown you need to set your lineups and place your bets this week, starting with Josh Culp's thorough course preview of the old-school, Donald Ross design. Patrick Reed headlines the list of players to consider for outright wagers as he looks for his second win of the PGA Tour season, while some triple-digit longshots with local ties could be worth a top-10 wager. Patrick McDonald has a few head-to-head matchups circled, including a possible bounce back from Rickie Fowler, as well as some thoughts on who may be leading after the first round.
