2014 BMW Championship Tournament Preview + Betting Odds

Filed under: PGA Golf Betting Odds |

BMW ChampionshipWhile one of the big storylines this week leading up to the BMW Championship was the selection of the 2014 Ryder Cup Captain’s picks, the focus for many players centers on the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Only 70 players will tee it up at the BMW Championship, with more than half of the field trimmed down for the Tour Championship. Only 30 will survive the weekend and make the final FedEx Cup Playoff event.

Historic Cherry Hills will host the third playoff event, and the pressure will be on. Rory McIlroy was in contention for the Deutsche Bank Championship with a blistering 64 on Saturday. But he came up short in the end to Chris Kirk, who fired a final round 66 to claim the victory. Despite the win, Kirk was still not selected as a pick by Tom Watson for the Ryder Cup.

Kirk is well down on the list of contenders this week as well. Of course, McIlroy leads the way on 2014 BMW Championship betting lines. A payout on the No.1 ranked players in the world is going off a 9/2 this week. That has been a consistent betting line throughout the course of the playoffs for McIlroy. He has been favored in each of the first two playoff events.

In fact, the top-five favorites in every playoff event has been pretty similar. We’ve got Adam Scott, Jason Day, Henrik Stenson, and Justin Rose that round out the top-five for the week prior to the opening round.

Stenson might be the most comfortable player at this point, having captured the FedEx Cup title last year. He knows that it mostly comes down to the performances over the final two events, with a particular emphasis on the Tour Championship. Once a player reaches the Tour Championship, anyone in the field can win the Cup.

The BMW Championship might be the most-difficult based on that fact. A total of 40 players will be playing their final event this week. That is well over half of the field that will not be making it to Atlanta.

Below, LatestBettingOdds.com has the complete list of payouts for every golfer in the field at Bovada Sportsbook this week for the BMW Championship. Check them out below. They will change after the conclusion of each of the first three rounds.
