2019 Tour Championship betting preview – FedEx Cup Playoffs

FedEx Cup Playoffs betting

FedEx Cup Playoffs betting

The 2019 FedEx Cup Playoffs wrap up this weekend as the top 30 players on the PGA Tour money list head to Atlanta, Georgia, for the 2019 Tour Championship.

Justin Thomas vaulted to the top of the FedEx Cup rankings with his dominant win at the BMW Championship and starts as the +200 favourite in the outright betting at Bovada.

Patrick Cantlay is next best at +450 after finishing three shots back at Medinah, while Brooks Koepka (+500) and Rory McIlroy (+800) are also well backed.


Some big names have fallen by the wayside on the road to the 2019 PGA Tour season finale.

Tiger Woods won it last year, but a disappointing tied-37th finish in the BMW means the US Masters champion will not defend his title at East Lake Golf Club.

He is not the only recent major winner to miss the cut, as Shane Lowry and Francesco Molinari – the last two British Open champs – both dropped out of the running last week.

Other notable absentees include Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia and Bubba Watson.

Best bets for Tour Championship 2019

Jon Rahm vs Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson – +175 at Bovada
Rahm has been the standout of the European contingent in the FedEx Cup Playoffs thus far, finishing third at Liberty National and fifth at Medinah. The talented Spaniard is a perpetual contender when he is on, as he showed when he ran top seven at all four post-season events in 2017. Johnson, Reed and Simpson were all well off the pace last week, so the form favours Rahm.

Adam Scott for top player outside US and Europe – +200 at Bovada
There are only a few likely challengers in this market. Abraham Ancer (+500) ran second at The Northern Trust and Hideki Matsuyama (+225) went third at the BMW, while Louis Oosthuizen (+900) finished inside the top 11 at both. Scott has looked good for most of the year and will be there or thereabouts again if his putting holds up over four rounds.

Brandt Snedeker to finish top 10 – +260 at Bovada
While Snedeker did not make a dint at the majors this year and polled only a handful of top-10 finishes elsewhere, his game has looked pretty solid over the past fortnight. The 38-year-old American tied for sixth at 16-under in The Northern Trust and followed up with a fifth-place finish in a low-scoring field at the BMW, so there is value in backing him to go deep at East Lake.

Brooks Koepka to win – +500 at Bovada
In the FedEx Cup era, only one man – Billy Horschel in 2014 – has taken out the Tour Championship after winning the previous week. So while Justin Thomas blitzed the field at Medinah and should top the season rankings, the odds don’t favour him backing up in the finale. Koepka, however, is a good chance in any big event and would love to cap another fine year with a win in Atlanta.
