We have expert betting tips for the 2020 Tour Championship, which is the final event of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Dustin Johnson has a two-shot lead on Jon Rahm in the FedEx Cup, but punters can bet into both markets this week.
We have our tips for Lowest 72 Hole Score and also for the season-ending Tour Championship, which includes a handicap.
Tour Championship Predictions
Tour Championship Best Bet – Dustin Johnson @ $7
We got the chocolates with Jon Ramn winning at $10 last week, but we’re going with Dustin Johnson to have the best score this week.
Johnson missed a few putts in his final round on Monday, otherwise, he could have run away with the tournament. However, his birdie on 18 shows just how clutch he can be.
Unfortunately for Johnson backers last week, he ran into a rampaging Rahm, who sunk a 66-foot putt on the first playoff hole.
We are expecting Johnson to be tough to beat over 72, which also means he’s our top pick to win the FedEx Cup. He has a two-shot lead over Rahm, and that is a good advantage to have coming into the final tournament.
Johnson is paying $7 to have the best score this week, and $2.88 to win the FedEx Cup. Both represent good value and the big American is our man – Bet Now
Tour Championship Best Value – Justin Thomas @ $9.50
Justin Thomas sits in third place for the Tour Championship and he’s only three shots behind Dustin Johnson.
The former world #1 is good enough to make up the three-shot deficit and punters are getting good odds for both the Tour Championship and to lead after 72 holes.
He is currently $9.50 to have the best score this weekend and $6.50 to win the FedEx Cup. Much like Johnson, both prices represent value and Thomas is no stranger to winning on the big stage.
The opening round will be crucial for Thomas, who plays best when he’s up near the top of the leaderboard early.
He might be the forgotten pick this week but he hasn’t escaped our gaze – Bet Now
Tour Championship Leader After Round 1 – Dustin Johnson @ $1.62
It comes as no surprise to see Dustin Johnson head the first-round leader market. He already has a two shot lead over Jon Rahm and even more shots over the rest of the field.
The other players will have to shoot a seriously-low score to be in front of Johnson after Friday’s round, so take the $1.62 on offer.
Punters could have a saver bet on Justin Thomas at $8. He can go low and the odds are worth entertaining – Bet Now
Tour Championship Exotic Betting Predictions
There are many excellent exotic betting opportunities for punters this week and we have found our best three options.
Sportsbet has a Top Rest of the World market where Hideki Matsuyama is the current $2.25 favourite. The Japanese star finished close behind Rahm last week and he starts at –4 for the Tour Championship.
That is one shot better than Sebastian Munoz and two shots better than Joaquin Niemann. Matusyama is the better player in this market and he only needs to hit fairways to win.
He cost himself a few shots at the BMW Championship by missing fairways. However, he is a great bet in this market at $2.25.
Another good market is the Top South American Player, which features only Joaquin Niemann and Sebastian Munoz. Neimann played great down the stretch last week but that is tough to do two weeks running.
Munoz wasn’t far behind the leaders and he is the steadier player. We’re expecting Munoz to outplay Niemann this week and lock up the value odds for punters.
He is currently paying $2.25 in a two-horse race, which is good shopping.
Sportsbet.com.au also has group betting, and we are looking at the Group B market, which features Collin Morikawa, Bryson DeChambeau, Rory McIlroy, and Hideki Matsuyama.
Bryson DeChambeau is overdue a good showing after producing some below-par results. The big-hitting American is suited by this course and we feel like he has something to prove this week.
He has a tough group but the $3.40 odds are worth taking for a player that could scorch this field in the blink of an eye.
