The TOUR Championship is the final tournament for the season and we have found the best prop bets.
Golf odds this week are available for a wealth of markets, including first-round leader, top 10, top European, and top rest of world golfer.
Patrick Cantlay starts the TOUR Championship with a two-shot lead over Tony Finau, and there is excellent value available for the American in the first round.
First Round Leader – Patrick Cantlay
Having a two-shot lead is a great way to start a tournament. Patrick Cantlay is in stellar form, as the only three-time PGA Tour winner this season, so it’s not like he needs the head start.
Despite having a lead over Finau and a three-shot lead over Jon Rahm, bettors get excellent odds for Cantlay to lead after the first round.
The sportsbook has Cantlay at -125, which is well worth including in your golf parlays. We think he will shoot around -4 in the opening round, which should keep him clear of the opposition.

His putter is on fire after making clutch putt after clutch putt to win the BMW Championship on Sunday. Cantlay has never been more confident, so we’re happy to take the -125 for the American to hold the clubhouse lead at East Lake on Thursday.
Pick: Patrick Cantlay -125
Top 10 – Dustin Johnson
Last year’s winner Dustin Johnson is starting a fair way back, but he’s capable of bridging the gap and finishing in the top 10.
There are five players ahead of him in the market, so he’s paying good odds relative to the market. The American knows how to shoot low numbers at East Lake, and he has recently been called the PGA Tour’s ‘goldfish’.
Having a short memory is a great asset for any golfer, no matter the level. Dustin Johnson is one of the more cool-tempered players on Tour, and Jon Rahm believes Johnson is the best goldfish.
“Oh, without a doubt Dustin Johnson,” Rahm told The Golf Channel. “He has the ability to forget unfortunate moments better than anyone else.”
We only hope Johnson remembers winning the FedEx Cup last year because that experience will do him the world of good this week.
We also like Cameron Smith to post a top 10 finish. The Australian starts at -5 and gets a head start on most of the field. Smith is paying -110 to retain his position, which is another value pick.
Pick: Dustin Johnson -120
Top European – Jon Rahm
Betting online is all about finding value, no matter what the price. Jon Rahm is paying short odds to be top European, but we want him on our ticket.
The Spaniard has a sizable lead over the likes of Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, and Sergio Garcia, so he should have no problem seeing them off.

Rahm is a good chance to win the TOUR Championship outright, and we don’t think the three aforementioned competitors will get close.
-225 is tough for some bettors to swallow, but Rahm is a big-game player. We are confident he has what it takes to finish as top European, especially with only three challengers.
Pick: Jon Rahm -225
Rest of World – Cameron Smith
We’re loving the odds for Cameron Smith to finish as the top rest of world player.
The Australian is the highest-ranked player in the FedEx Cup, so not only is he in a better starting position, but he’s playing superb golf.
He almost won The Northern Trust when losing to Tony Finau in a playoff, and he played well enough last week to secure a top five placing in the FedEx Cup.
Starting ahead of the likes of Abraham Ancer, Sungjae Im and Louis Oosthuizen only strengthens his chances of beating this group.
+250 is a steal and he’s one of our more confident bets for the TOUR Championship.
