Dell Technologies Championship: Rose presents value outside of the favorites

Looking outside of the top 5 or 10 players hasn’t worked out too well in the FedEx Cup playoffs over the last couple of years.

But if there is somewhere that the next level of players can pop up, it seems to be TPC Boston.

I’ve targeted a pair of stats for previous winners on the course to try to find some names that can contend here. Since it entered the playoff rotation in 2007, all 10 winners of the event came into the tournament ranked in the top 50 in Strokes Gained: Overall and Par 5 scoring.

All the star players will check off those two boxes, but so do a handful a guys ranked in the next range down the board.

Justin Rose is the primary guy I’m targeting in this area. Rose is available at 40/1, and is capable of coming out on top in a field of this size and strength. It was just a little more than four months ago where Rose was an odds-on favorite to win the Masters with six holes left. Since then, he’s slipped thanks in large part to a recurring back problem, but he seemed to regain his form last week and finished in the top 10.


Two other names I like in this range are Kevin Chappell (45/1) and Patrick Cantlay (70/1). Both are coming off strong finishes last week as well, and Chappell has a good history at TPC Boston, finishing 8th and 12th in his last two starts.

With a Friday start, there’s an extra day to get bets in. I’ll be back on Thursday to look at the long shots and try to find some prop bets.
