Golf Betting: FedExCup Betting Preview

Jordan Spieth was the runaway leader in FedExCup points during the 'regular season' portion of the PGA Tour schedule, and he's also the betting favorite at the sportsbooks to win the first event of the tour's playoffs, The Barclays at Plainfield Country Club.

At Bovada Spieth is set as the +550 favorite on the odds to win The Barclays this week, after he won four tournaments - including two majors - and picked up 14 Top-10 results on the PGA Tour this past season. Spieth also enters the four-tournament playoff atop the World Golf Rankings.

Rory McIlroy, second in the World Golf Rankings, is skipping The Barclays this week, leaving Jason Day as the +900 second-favorite to win the tournament at the sportsbook. Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose are both at +1100, with Brooks Koepka and Bubba Watson at +2200. Johnson won The Barclays the last time it was held at Plainfield back in 2011.

Henrik Stenson and Rickie Fowler sit at +2500 on The Barclays odds at Bovada, with each of Jim Furyk, Paul Casey, and Matt Kuchar at +3300. Kuchar is also a past champion at the event, winning in 2010 when the tournament was held at Ridgewood Country Club.

The top 125 points leaders qualify for The Barclays, the first of four tournaments that settle the PGA Tour's FedExCup playoff system. Along with McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Francesco Molinari, and Retief Goosen will also sit out this week, leaving the field at 120.

The top 100 points leaders after this week then move on to the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, with the top 70 points leaders after that event teeing it up in the BMW Championship at Conway Farms GC. The top 30 points leaders then advance to the Tour Championship at East Lake GC.

The PGA Tour's FedExCup playoffs begin this week with The Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey, and Rory McIlroy enters the tournament both as the favorite on the golf odds for FedExCup betting at The Barclays and as the leader in the standings.

Heading into the four-tournament PGA Tour playoffs McIlroy sits atop the FedExCup standings, with Jimmy Walker, Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed, and Chris Kirk making up the rest of the Top 10 golfers on that list.

And it's McIlroy that sits at the top of the odds to win The Barclays at online sportsbook Bovada this week, as he holds down a 4/1 line on those FedExCup odds. Adam Scott, who won The Barclays last year, is then at 14/1 on those betting lines at the sportsbook; Scott enters the week in 15th place in the FedExCup standings.

Henrik Stenson (16/1), Justin Rose (20/1), Phil Mickelson (20/1), Rickie Fowler (20/1), and Garcia (20/1) follow behind McIlroy and Scott on the FedExCup odds to win The Barclays this week, with Furyk and Jason Day both at 28/1.

After The Barclays cuts down the FedExCup field the remaining golfers will move on to the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, and then to the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills Country Club before the finalists close out the season with the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club.
