TOUR Championship Golf Odds and Predictions

PGA Tour Live Lines

FedEx Cup points leader Jordan Spieth and five-time winner Justin Thomas headline this week’s TOUR Championship. Dustin Johnson, Marc Leishman and Jon Rahm round out the top five and all five players control their own destiny. If one of them wins this week, they walk away with as the FedEx Cup Champion and the $10 million.

The 30-man betting field is loaded with top notch players and all have the talent to win, but in order for the No. 30 player to win it all, the top players would have to finish dead last and that’s not going to happen. It’s a showdown between the top five and really, that’s what golf fans want to see.

Each of the past seven FedExCup champions have done so while winning the TOUR Championship. The last one who didn’t was Tiger Woods, who claimed the 2009 crown while second to Mickelson on the East Lake leaderboard.

Venue: East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta, Georgia. The layout measures 7,307 yards and plays to a par 70. The Donald Ross design dates back to 1913 and remains one of the top tracks in the world. The TOUR Championship came to East Lake for the first time in 1998, making it stick in 2004.

Last year: Rory McIlroy took home the $10 million season crown with his second win in three weeks. McIlroy had to go extra holes to get the win and it appeared that Ryan Moore would win in regulation but an 8-root birdie out lipped out on the 72nd hole paving the way for McIlroy to snatch the win.

PREDICTIONS and ANALYSIS

Of the top five in the standings, I like Justin Thomas +1000 to get it done this week. He hasn’t played great over the past few weeks, but that’s how he plays - he has a few average tournaments and then, boom, he wins one. Thomas has won five events this year and can pick up a half a dozen this week at East Lake.

Patrick Cantlay +2750 has only played 12 events this year and made it to the season’s finale. That’s some outstanding playing for the former No. 1 ranked amateur. He can free wheel it this week and doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone. Clearly, the former UCLA star is a player on the rise and one that could win this week in Atlanta.

One player to stay away from is Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama +1500. He’s hit a cold spell at the wrong time. He was cemented in the top five for most of the year but got knocked down to seventh after three lackluster performances. He will continue to struggle at a tournament where he doesn’t have much to play for. Fade Matsuyama!

The TOUR Championship is scheduled to start September 21-24, 2017 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia. The Golf Channel and NBC will televise the event.
