Golf Betting: Scheffler Picked for FedEx St. Jude Championship

PGA Tour Playoffs

A stunning field tees up in the Golf  FedEx St. Jude Championship this week, including Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, and Jon Rahm.

PGA betting odds have framed an even market which has McIlroy at +1100. He has been the favorite for much of the year and bookmakers expect him to be fighting out the finish again.

The FedEx St. Jude Championship is where dreams can be made and it’s going to be an incredible week.

All Eyes on Scheffler

Entering the playoffs as the top-ranked player comes with added pressure, but Scheffler has stepped up to the mark before.

In the FedEx St. Jude Championship, we believe Scheffler is a great wager and the American might increase his lead in the FedEx Cup after destroying the field in the regular season.

The 26-year-old from New Jersey missed the cut at the Scottish Open before finishing T21 at The Open Championship. He needed a break, though, and he ought to return in fine order back on home soil.

He lead the PGA Tour in money earned, which scored him a healthy $4 million bonus.

“I’m proud of securing the top spot in the Comcast Business TOUR TOP 10 as it represents great competition over the course of a season against the best players in the world,” Scheffler told PGA Tour. “This is a great reminder of all the hard work I’ve put in over the years with the support of my family and team.”

In addition to being the FedEx Cup leader, he is also the top player in the world and we thought he would be the betting favorite because of it. The +1400 odds are generous and they align with his PGA Championship betting odds for earlier in the year.

Young Playing Beyond His Years

Cameron Young, who has emerged out of nowhere to perform at a high level, has been one of the PGA Tour’s most reliable golfers.

Prior to finishing T2 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the American placed second at The Open Championship. Additionally, he has top-five finishes in the RBC Heritage, PGA Championship, and Wells Fargo Championship.

Although he has had a remarkable run, he still needs to reward his reliability with a victory. Will Zalatoris and others like Young are on the verge of success, but the longer it takes, the more difficult it is.

We remain optimistic and anticipate another valiant effort from the +3000 chance with FedEx St. Jude Championship betting markets.

Another player we expect to win soon is Jon Rahm. He has been getting close following his Mexico Open win and the +2000 odds are excellent value.

We don’t believe he deserves to be at such high odds considering that he followed it up with a T10 showing at The Memorial and a T12 showing at the US Open.

There aren’t six guys in the field, most notably Patrick Cantlay at +1800, who we believe are superior to Rahm. Include Rahm in your FedEx St. Jude Championship picks.

Load Up on Smith

Cameron Smith is perhaps the hottest golfer on the planet following his Open Championship win.

The Australian is another rising talent who hasn’t competed since winning his first major. He has a good chance of winning the FedEx St. Jude Championship and making an impact early in his FedEx Cup playoff campaign.

A major championship plus the Players Championship in the same year is exceptional. His self-assurance is through the roof and the online betting odds of +1600 offer fantastic value.

It’s a tough betting market and Smith adds to the list of quality players who could easily win late on Sunday afternoon.
