Expert PGA Betting Picks: Tour Championship

Look, predicting a pre-tournament winner in golf isn’t easy. While it’s true sports bettors can find fantastic value, it’s incredibly frustrating when one of your picks doesn’t even make the cut. That’s why I’m here to help.

Every week I’ll highlight three golfers who have a good chance to win the hardware for the upcoming weekend. This week it’s the final leg of the FedExCup playoffs, the BMW Championship.

For a full breakdown of the tournament, check out my betting preview.

Rickie Fowler +1000

Coming off a runner-up finish at the BMW Championship, it feels like Fowler is once again ready to break through when the stakes are at their highest. Last weekend marked his eighth top-five finish since February, and he’s in a tie for fifth in the playoffs in adjusted scoring.

Fowler only possesses one top-10 at East Lake in three appearances, but I’m not concerned with his track record here. The American is one of the top players in the world and is ready to show why 2018 is going to truly be his breakout year, which will likely be accompanied by a major championship.

Justin Rose +1200

The 2016 Olympic gold medalist is coming off a tie for second last week at Conway Farms and is absolutely locked in ahead of the Tour Championship. Considering the tiny 30-man field, you’re not going to get a ton of value on any top player, but a shot on Rose at +1200 is a safe bet in my eyes.

The Englishman loves playing at East Lake, as he’s posted two seconds and no worse than a sixth in his last four starts at the course. Expect to see more of the same this weekend when the PGA Tour season winds down.

Matt Kuchar +2800

Kuchar is one of those players who doesn’t do anything exceptionally well but he doesn’t have many holes in his game either. He’s as steady as it gets on the tour, and a win at the Tour Championship would be the cherry on top of what’s been a very solid year for the veteran.

Kuchar has come close to winning on many occasions in the 2016-17 season but hasn’t been able to go all the way. He’s very accurate off the tee and doesn’t pick up many bogeys – two habits that will help him tremendously at East Lake. He’ll have some extremely stiff competition, but I think a small play on Kuchar at +2800 is reasonable.
