FedEx St. Jude Championship Betting Preview

The PGA TOUR Playoffs have arrived! The top 70 players in the season long standings peg it up at TPC Southwind in Tennessee for the first of three playoff events. The winner of the FedEx St. Jude Championship receives 2,000 FedEx Cup points and a whopping $3.6M.

After crunching the betting odds, studying film, recent form, course history, and simulating the tournament 100x on EA Sports PGA TOUR, we’re targeting 4 golfers to excel in Memphis. 

 Rickie Fowler (9th in FedEx Cup Standings)

-To Win Odds: +3000

-Top 10 Odds: +260

 Fowler simply has never looked better. Ranked 5th on TOUR in “Scoring Average”, 6th in “Birdie Average”, and 8th in “Strokes Gained – Total”, if Rickie’s jailbird putter stays hot, he’ll pose a major threat at TPC Southwind.

 Wyndham Clark (5th in FedEx Cup Standings)

-To Win Odds: +3300

-Top 10 Odds: +280

Clark is having a breakout season, notching his first 2 wins on TOUR this season, including the U.S Open. This season, he’s 13th in “Scoring Average” and 16th in “Par 4 Scoring”, if Clark peppers fairways all weekend, he can take it very low in the Volunteer State.

Tom Kim (14th in FedEx Cup Standings)

-To Win Odds: +4000

-Top 10 Odds: +370

The ankle injury adds uncertainty, but the odds are too high to pass on the young stud. Has 7 top 10’s this season and is coming off a T2 at the British Open. Ranked 9th on TOUR in “Approach to Green” and 7th in “Driving Accuracy”, Kim’s a hot putter away from notching career win #3.

J.T Poston (45th in FedEx Cup Standings)

-To Win Odds: +7500

-Top 10 Odds: +450 

JT did make the playoffs, Poston not Thomas. Not many players enter the playoffs in better form, off the heels of four top 10 finishes in his last five starts. JT plays well at Southwind, recording three top 30 finishes in his last four appearances in The Grind City.
