The FedEx Cup playoffs return to a familiar setting this week.
TPC Boston has hosted the Dell Techonolgies Championship, formally the Duetsche Bank, since the tournament debuted in 2003. The course plays at a par 71 and is a little over 7,200 yards. It tends to play fairly easy with the winning score usually ending up in the mid-teens to low 20s under par. The tournament also has a Friday through Monday schedule, traditionally ending on Labor Day.
The stars coming out on top has become the norm for these playoff event. Patrick Reed at 33/1 in the 2016 Barclays is the winner with the highest odds in the last nine playoff events.
This week, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth check in at 7/1 and 8/1 respectively after their playoff battle last week.
Either one of them fit this course just fine and given the chalk’s propensity to hit in these events, just putting down a large bet on one of them could be the right play.
I’m going to drop to that next level and begin my card with Jason Day however. This tournament has fit Day’s eye for awhile now with six of his last sevens starts ending inside the top 15. He’s also trending upward and finished sixth a week ago.
I made him my primary play at 16/1 for 2.4 units. Those odds are gone on the Bovada board listed above, but still available on 5Dimes.
With Day as my top bet, here’s a look at my full card with most of these plays coming from Sportsbook. I’ll be back later in the week to break down the midlevel and long shot picks as well as find some props and matchups.
