The FedEx Cup series continues this week, with the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston.
After the excitement in New York last weekend, when world no. 1 Dustin Johnson sneaked up to clinch victory, we at Lap of the Odds again look to the top of the world rankings for a likely winner.
DJ is the favourite after his superb play-off win on Sunday, and given his propensity to go on winning streaks we wouldn’t put anyone off.
Rory McIlroy is the defending champion, and is the leading money winner around this course, but he has looked off his game amid injury doubts.
Instead we will side with last weekend’s runner up, world no. 2 Jordan Speith. The manner of his recent loss will rankle, and we expect someone with his mental strength to bounce back strongly.
Our second selection is Kevin Chappell. The American has been playing well of late, rewarding us with some each way money last weekend. We still think there’s a chance he can win a big tournament before the season closes.
Our final selection is a bit of a punt. Xander Schauffele is a young golfer who has already won on the PGA Tour, at the Greenbrier Classic in July, and was good enough to finish in a tie for fifth place at the US Open. We’ll take a chance given the hefty odds available.
Speith to win, 1 pt, 8/1 widely available
Chappell 0.5 pts each way, 40/1 at 1/4 the odds first six, SkyBet
Schauffele 0.5 pts each way, 100/1 at 1/5 the odds first six, Boyle Sports
