  • Justin Thomas (+225) is the favorite to win the 2019 Tour Championship and lift the FedEx Cup at East Lake.
  • Jason Sobel previews the Tour Championship and how the scoring format should create for some odd betting.

ATLANTA — Get ready for the strangest scoring week you’ve ever seen at a professional golf tournament — and as a result, perhaps the strangest betting and DFS week, too.

Look, I’m not a big fan of the staggered scoring format for this week’s finale, in which Justin Thomas starts at 10-under and every other competitor is some number of multiple strokes behind him. I do understand it, though. The PGA Tour has alleviated itself of last year’s fault, when Justin Rose failed to win a FedEx Cup playoff event and still captured the overall title.
