We have expert betting tips for the 2020 The Northern Trust, which is the first event of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
125 of the best golfers take to TPC Boston this week where they will be trying to advance through the playoffs.
It is a star-studded field and we look at the best bets for golf punters in The Northern Trust.
The Northern Trust Preview
The Northern Trust Best Bet – Jon Rahm @ $15
The former World Number One was only six shots off the pace at the PGA Championship and he has been playing well this year.
Jon Rahm represents value for punters at the $15 odds and after winning The Memorial on a similar course to TPC Boston, this tournament looks ideal.
It’s hard to think that Rahm is only a 25-year-old and he still has plenty more success to come. He has changed his mental game in 2020 and it is paying off.
We are expecting a strong performance from the Spaniard and punters should get value all the way through to Monday morning – Bet Now
The Northern Trust Best Value – Jason Day @ $23
Jason Day is another form golfer after finishing in a tie for fourth at the PGA Championship. That followed a T6 finish at the St. Jude Invitational and a T4 finish at The Memorial.
Since missing the cut at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July, Day has posted four consecutive top 10 finishes and that is steady golf.
Despite battling with a back injury, the former World Number One is getting back to his best golf, which is very good.
The Australian seems to be managing his pain well and we are expecting another strong showing at The Northern Trust – Bet Now
The Northern Trust Leader After Round 1 – Cameron Champ @ $61
We always hunt for value in the first-round leader market and this week we are going with a great value play.
Cameron Champ is coming off an impressive performance at the PGA Championship and he has the power to get the better of TPC Boston.
Champ is the biggest hitter on tour and although power isn’t everything, Champ only needs a solid short game to compete.
The $61 to lead after the first round is too good to pass up – Bet Now
The Northern Trust Top 10 Betting Predictions
The favourite for The Northen Trust is Bryson DeChambeau ($2.40) and he must be included in Top 10 betting selections.
DeChambeau’s form has been a touch inconsistent this season but for the most part, he has been at the top of the leaderboard.
He has attracted headlines with his significant body transformation but it has been his play on the course that demands attention.
Stick with Bryson and the $2.40 for a Top 10 finish is good shopping.
Daniel Berger ($4.33) hasn’t done anything wrong this season and the multiple PGA Tour winner deserves more respect from bookmakers.
The American goes about his business quietly and he has been doing plenty of business this season. He won the Charles Schwab Challenge to kick off the restarted season and he has since finished runner-up in the St. Jude Invitational.
He is coming off a T13 finish at the PGA Championship, where he didn’t fully fire in the final round. However, it was another strong showing for Berger and he should be right around the mark again.
We can’t leave out Tiger Woods ($4.50) and he isn’t far off returning to the form that saw him win the 2019 US Masters.
Woods did well to make the cut at the PGA Championship and his final-round score of –3 is a good sign going forward. He played well enough in that tournament to suggest that he could figure in the finish this week.
Most golf fans cheer for Woods to play well, so punters may we well take the generous odds on offer.
