While the odds are favoring Johnson, the expert picks are somewhat contrary. PGATOUR.COM experts are majorly favoring Cameron Smith or either Webb Simpson to win the tournament. The names of Si Woo Kim and Brian Harman are in the mix too. 

On the whole, these five players are expected to fight for a shot at winning the title at RBC Heritage 2021. Johnson has never won his home state tournament before. Can he do it this time?
