Tour Championship 2017 Odds Guide, Preview & Betting Tips
With the final FedEx points having been decided at the weekend, the top 30 players in the rankings now head to the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Georgia for the play offs and the Tour Championship, writes Matt.
It’s a small field but naturally it’s going to be a very strong one and picking a winner is a tough ask when you have the world’s best on show. However, we continued our strong form at the weekend as Webb Simpson took a Top Ten place at 6/1 in that respective market so let’s see how the betting is looking.
Jordan Spieth has what could be considered as a significant lead in the outright result markets and the reigning Open Champion is on offer for the Tour Championship at an industry best price of 11/2 with Stan James.
Dustin Johnson predictably follows at best odds of 8/1 while Rickie Fowler is in third place at a best of 9/1, both with Betfred.
Of those three, only Fowler showed any form at the BMW Championship at the weekend, finishing in third place as Marc Leishmann ran away with the event but it’s Spieth who looks to be shaping up for the win. A winner here in 2015, he leads the play off stats in assisted scoring and in tee to green and those should prove to be key figures by Sunday afternoon.
Hideki Matusyama led the FedEx Cup points table for some time and that’s why many punters will be looking at his 20/1 in the Tour Championship odds with William Hill. However, his form is dreadful coming into this event with finishes outside of the Top 20 in his last three outings.
Sergio Garcia showed some fighting qualities at the BMW Championship but has yet to hit the heights since his Masters win in April. After that tie for 12th at the weekend, there may be some interest in the Spaniard at betting odds of 30/1 with Bet365.
Other names to mention in the chasing pack section include Marc Leishman who was superb in closing out last week’s tournament from round one. At best odds of 22/1 with Stan James, there will be plenty of interest around the Aussie in Atlanta.
Justin Rose finished strongly at the weekend and can’t be ruled out at a top price of 14/1 with Bet365 and William Hill. Matt Kuchar finished in a tie for 5th and, if he is back to the form which earned a second place at the Open, could be good value at 28/1 with Betfred.
When looking at the outsiders, it’s worth mentioning Webb Simpson, not as a potential winner but as someone who has given us a consistent run for our money in the Top Ten markets over recent weeks. Simpson is at a top price of 50/1 in the outrights with Betfred and he does rank well in the play offs for strokes gained and in putting so perhaps we shouldn’t just be looking for a place this week.
Paul Casey is another man who we frequently look to for Top Ten profits and the Englishman is at an industry best of 20/1 with Unibet for the outright win. Mentions in this section also go to Kevin Chappell at 40/1 with Unibet and Charley Hoffman at 60/1 with Bet365.
Our Tour Championship Preview’s Betting Tips Verdict & Course Trends
The East Lake Golf Club first held this event in 1998 and has played host to the Tour Championship on a consistent basis since 2004. It’s a par 70 with a relatively long distance of just under 7,400 yards and we have not seen any particularly low four-round totals in recent years.
Zach Johnson hit 60 here in 2007 – the same year that Tiger Woods made a mockery of the course with a 23 under total but a switch to Bermuda grass has led to tougher greens and higher scoring. Putting is therefore going to be a key stat along with GIR and it does all point to Spieth for the win.
We also know how the reigning Open Champion tends to raise his game for the big events so for once we’ll side with an obvious favourite as this preview’s outright winner betting tip. These are our selections:
- Bet on Jordan Spieth each-way at current best odds of 11/2 with Stan James to win the Tour Championship.
- Because of the reduced field, we just have a Top Five market this week so we’ll keep these brief. Our chosen options here are Justin Rose at 12/5, Kevin Chappell at 11/2 and Webb Simpson at 6/1 – all of those prices are with Boylesports for a Top Five finish.
