2019 BMW Championship Matchup Bets: Is Fading Tiger Still the Move?

One of the biggest questions surrounding this week’s BMW Championship is: What can we expect from Tiger Woods?

The easy answer: Not a whole lot.

Which leads to the next question: Why is he even playing?

The slightly more difficult answer: There are whispers that Tiger needs to play a minimum number of events for specific contract clauses to kick in, but the less skeptical response is that he might as well give it a shot, because if he doesn’t advance to the Tour Championship, he’ll have two months off after this anyway.

On the heels of last week’s withdrawal, this feels like a smash spot to fade Tiger. Unfortunately, everyone else knows that, too.

My list of three favorite matchups begins with a Tiger fade, though one that would’ve been more profitable earlier this week.
