Four Players Share Lead in Harbour Town, and One of Them Looks Like a Sneaky Live Bet This Weekend

Collin Morikawa, Sepp Straka, Tom Hoge and J.T. Poston are tied at the top through 36 holes, and one of them looks underpriced by the betting market.

J.T. Poston, owner of 3 top 8 finishes in his last five trips to Harbour Town, is one of four co-leaders through 36 holes at the 2024 RBC Heritage at 11 under par, but the betting odds haven't fully caught up to him.

He looks like a compelling bet at +1100 to win the RBC Heritage from his current position — he's tied with Collin Morikawa, Tom Hoge and Sepp Straka, each of whom has a bigger resume than Poston. But Poston is a sneaky bet from here because of his exceptional accuracy and finesse, which align perfectly with Harbour Town. Poston's game thrives on precision over power, a theme this week as it's a critical asset for a course that rewards strategic play and penalizes errors off the tee.

Poston's recent performances, including a T30 at the Masters, reveal strong putting stats and a knack for navigating courses that require careful shot selection. His familiarity and past success at similar coastal tracks boost his odds, making him an attractive pick for this event. If you're looking to cash in on an RBC Heritage live bet, our model says Poston is the pick from here.
