PGA Tour Season Concludes
TOUR Championship odds for prop markets are out for the final tournament of the FedEx Cup playoffs at East Lake this week.
Because of the limited field of only 30, prop betting markets look a little different at the sportsbook. However, there is plenty of value with top country markets, including Matthew Fitzpatrick for top Englishman.
We look at the best TOUR Championship lines for what should be an epic conclusion to the 2023 season.
Fitpatrick Fitting In
We respect Fleetwood’s ability, but Fitzpatrick not only comes off a top performance at the BMW Championship, but he’s also a major winner, which holds of merit.
The 2022 U.S. Open winner hadn’t been driving the ball well, but he usually finds a quick remedy, which he found last week.
“Yeah, it’s disappointing. It’s disappointing, there’s no doubt about it,” Fitzpatrick said. “There’s not much to add to it. It’s disappointing. I wanted it to be better. I felt like U.S. Open was successful, Masters was successful, particularly U.S. Open with the way I drove the ball.”
Fitzpatrick has the advantage of starting one shot clear of Fleetwood and four clear of Hatton, so this wager is a no-brainer.
We thought Fitzpatrick would be paying around -150 to be the top British golfer, so take the value available.
Scheffler To Lead Americans
Despite thinking Scottie Scheffler gets run down by Rory McIlroy for the TOUR Championship title, he should finish ahead of the Americans.
The world number one starts the tournament as the firm favorite, given his two-shot lead over Viktor Hovland, and the immediate chasers are from Denmark, Northern Ireland, and Spain.
Therefore, Scheffler could have enough in the tank to beat his countrymen. He’s a -180 hope to beat the likes of Patrick Cantlay and Max Homa, which is a fair price given his tournament odds of +130.
If he shoots anywhere close to -4 in the opening round, bettors should expect his live betting odds to firm to around -300 for top American. He could put a huge space on his rivals, so Thursday’s round is crucial.
The only danger to that is Jon Rahm winning, but it’s a relatively safe bet to include in selections.
Kim To Dominate the World
We have nothing but praise for Tom Kim, who is our best bet to top the Rest of the World betting market.
The young South Korean closed with a -7 score on Sunday in the BMW Championship, so he should be brimming full of confidence heading to East Lake.
He is on the second line of betting behind Sungjae Im, who has more experience, but Kim is already a two-time PGA Tour winner, and he’s a golfer to follow.
We love his maturity on and off the course, which is rarely seen in the professional ranks.
“Compared with last year, I’ve changed so much, whether it’s my mindset during a tournament or the way I approach the game,” Kim said. “I am constantly surrounded by great players, people who have won major titles. I’ve been getting advice from them, and I can’t help but keep maturing.”
Sport betting markets have him at +350 to beat the likes of Im, Corey Connors, Si Woo Kim, and Jason Day.
It’s a value price for one of the most exciting golfers on the PGA Tour, who we’re picking to have a better 2024.
