Top 4 Players Taking Nearly 50% Of The Money To Win BMW Championship
Rahm, McIlroy, Johnson and DeChambeau Most Popular Players to Win BMW Championship
Following an initial BMW Championship preview with players odds, stats and course information at Olympia Fields for the FedExCup playoffs, I chipped in more at TheLines with added insight and information you can bet on.
Today’s BMW Championship odds update included a report from DraftKings sportsbook indicating that Jon Rahm (14%), Dustin Johnson (11%), Rory McIlroy (11%) and Bryson DeChambeau (10%) had combined to account for 46% of the money wagered to win the BMW Championship.
Next are Justin Thomas, Daniel Berger and Collin Morikawa all taking 7% of the money wagered to win with Viktor Hovland another 6% of the win market. So those eight players of the 70 in the field account for 73% of the money wagered to win the event.
FedExCup Playoffs: Overview, Points and Starting Strokes Explained
DraftKings and other sportsbooks cleaned up last week when four of the top-5 players bet to win the Northern Trust missed the event. That included Collin Morikawa, Jason Day, Tony Finau and Bryson DeChambeau.
The betting market and odds can vary at various sportsbooks. At William Hill, whose leading markets are in Nevada and New Jersey, DeChambeau (+1000) is its biggest liablity with the most money bet, and Daniel Berger (+1800) with the largest number of bets.
The BMW Championship tees off tomorrow and Daniel Berger leads the field in number of tickets. ⛳️

I chipped in more at Forbes this week with BMW Championship betting insight noting too that there is no cut this week. So full tournament match-ups will go four rounds without a bet being decided by the weekend and a missed cut. the FedExCup Standings are worth watching throughout the tournament with updates on the top players and those on the ‘bubble’ trying to secure a spot in the top-30 like one of our guys this week, Patrick Cantlay (currently No. 37).
Check out the Forbes article for more infomation on the potential fatigue factors, U.S. Open type course setup and extra thick rough, and the sports betting growth despite the pandemic slowing down major sports.
