PGA Betting: Tour Championship Odds
The FedExCup playoffs conclude this week with the PGA Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta, Georgia.
The final event of the playoffs works a little differently. The field is incredibly small with only the top 30 in the standings getting in. The standings leader, Patrick Cantlay, will start the tournament at 10 under par. Second place in the standings starts at 8 under, third place at 7 under and so on down to the golfers in 26th to 30th place who start at even par. Before you make a bet this week, make sure you know the starting score for each golfer.
At Bovada Sportsbook, the co-favorites this week are Cantlay and Jon Rahm at +400.
Cantlay tops FedExCup standings after BMW victory
Cantlay is first in the FedExCup standings after winning the BMW Championship last week. He ended up in a playoff against Bryson DeChambeau at the BMW and needed six extra holes to secure the victory.
Rahm is fourth in the FedExCup standings and will begin the Tour Championship at 6 under par. Rahm tied for ninth place in the BMW Championship last week.
Following Cantlay and Rahm on the odds list at Bovada are DeChambeau at +500 and Tony Finau at +650. The odds increase dramatically after them with Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy all at +2000.
DeChambeau’s putter let him down a few times last week, which ended up costing him a shot at winning the BMW Championship and first place in the FedExCup standings. He’ll enter the Tour Championship in third place in the standings and will start at 7 under par.
Finau fourth on Tour Championship oddsboard
Finau won the first FedExCup playoff event, the Northern Trust, two weeks ago. After tying for 15th place at the BMW Championship, he sits in second place in the FedExCup standings. He’ll start the Tour Championship at 8 under par.
Johnson won the Tour Championship last season to win the FedExCup. It will be tough for him to repeat as champion this week. He’s in 15th place in the standings and will begin this week at 3 under par.
McIlroy is a two-time Tour Championship winner, in 2016 and 2019. He finished in fourth place last week in the BMW but he’s still well back in the standings in 16th place. He’s got a lot of ground to make up this week starting at 2 under par.
Other former winners of the Tour Championship in this week’s field include 2017 winner Xander Schauffele (+3300), 2015 winner Spieth and 2014 winner Billy Horschel (+20000).
