The FedEx Cup top-100 aren’t the only ones in store for a lucrative week at the Dell Technologies Championship, the oracle’s followers are set to fill their boots too.
Don’t forget it’s the last ever Monday finish at TPC Boston this year so you’ve an extra day to try to figure out who’s going to make us money in the second round of the Playoffs. Dustin Johnson starts favourite at 8/1 with Brooks Koepka looking the better “win only” bet at 12/1 across the bookies. He has a best at the venue of T18 last year but after winning the US Open and PGA and surging to a T8 finish last week, he should contend again.
Doc’s Top-5 Each Way Bets
Adam Scott 28/1
Scotty paid out for us each way with a T5 at Ridgewood so it makes sense to keep him on our betslip this week. The anatomy of that performance was a -1, -4, -7 clip cumulatively on the par 3’s, 4’s, 5’s with a T10 in Greens in Regulation and T12 in Putting, or in other words, very good indeed. Winner here in 2003 with a recent best of 4th in 2016.
Jason Day 16/1
Simmering, brewing or even frothing Jason Day now has five top-20 finishes in his seven starts since missing the cut at the US Open. He’s also T7, T12, T15, T25 on his last four visits to TPC Boston and never missed a cut in 10 starts. Needs a breakthrough week but as the stakes increase in the Playoffs the cream tends to rise. And Day is most definitely of the double whipped variety!
Patrick Cantlay 30/1
Continues to impress with an all-round game that can travel to any venue and contend. T8 again last week at The Northern Trust with strong stats across the board. And at least this week he knows the venue having finished T13 on his debut at TPC Boston last year. Bearing in mind we are after top five finishers and winning is a bonus, Cantlay is statistically the perfect fit.
Gary Woodland 66/1
Here’s one the bookies seem to have overlooked; it’s Gary Woodland at 66/1. He’s qualified for the last five and finished no worse than T18th in his last three visits to TPC Boston. Led the field in Greens In Regulation last year and after a recent T6 at the PGA Championship we know his game is there.
Patrick Reed 33/1
If you’re looking for a horse for the course in Boston Patrick Reed is your man. Without winning he’s head and shoulders the most consistent at the venue going T4, T5, T6 in his last three visits. The bookies will point to a missed cut at the PGA Championship and T25 last week at Ridgewood but his jacket is still coloured green and there’s a Ryder Cup on the horizon so Pat Reed will most definitely be up for this.
Long Odds Glory Shots
Keegan Bradley 100/1
Has now shot a 62, 63 and 64 in his last three starts and playing some incredible golf. The only problem? Matching that 62 at Ridgewood with a 78 the following day. But one of these weeks Keegan will find consistency and be in the mix. Always in the top 25% at TPC Boston so worth an each way flutter that this could be his week!
Kevin Na 80/1
Another real workhorse that grinds out results and looks great value at 80/1. Na’s win at the Greenbrier was emotional, a T19 at the PGA was respectable and a T15 last week was gutsy given a third round 75. Finished T6 here last year and again has a squeak.
