One year after driving his way to a three-shot win in Detroit, Bryson DeChambeau is favored to go back-to-back at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

DeChambeau offered a preemptive apology last year to long-deceased course designer Donald Ross, then launched one eye-popping tee shot after another at Detroit Golf Club to chase down Matthew Wolff in his tournament debut. The win paved the way to his U.S. Open title a few months later, and now the defending champ is back - and the course hasn't exactly been Bryson Proofed in the intervening months.

DeChambeau won earlier this year at Bay Hill, and he enters off a T-19 finish at the Travelers Championship. He's a clear favorite to win again in the Motor City, listed at +700 by oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook. Next on the list is former Masters champ Patrick Reed, who finished T-5 in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2019, followed by current Masters champ Hideki Matsuyama.

Further down the pack are some notable names, including Bubba Watson (+4000) who let one get away late Sunday in Connecticut. Rickie Fowler is listed at the same odds as Watson, having missed the Travelers cut, while PGA champ Phil Mickelson opened at +6600.

Here's a look at the notable odds for the third edition of the Tour's lone stop in Michigan:
