The second of three legs in the FedEx Cup Playoffs sees the top-70 players on the points list compete in the no-cut BMW Championship. Only the top-30 golfers after this tournament will head to the season finale at the Tour Championship. Rory McIlroy is +1000 favorite despite missing the cut last week. Reigning Open Champion Cameron Smith withdrew from the event, citing a hip injury.

Will Zalatoris enters this tournament as the leader in the FedEx Cup points race after defeating Sepp Straka in a three-hole playoff at the FedEx St. Jude Championship.

Rory McIlroy, who has won the FedEx Cup twice in his career (2016, 2019), is the favorite to snag the BMW Championship. Keep in mind, this is the first time Wilmington Country Club will host this tournament, so course history isn’t as big a factor as it normally would be. It’s a par-71 layout at just over 7,500 yards.

Tony Finau Continues To Roll

It’s hard to find anyone hotter right now than Tony Finau, who won back-to-back tournaments at the 3M Open and Rocket Mortgage Classic, then followed that up with a tie for fifth in the FedEx Cup Playoffs opener.

Unsurprisingly, his ‘strokes gained’ stats over that time have been off the charts phenomenal.

Finau is in a cluster of seven other players with +1400 odds, which is tied for the second shortest behind Rory McIlroy. With all the top golfers sporting the same odds, he’s a great option given his recent dominance.

2022 BMW Championship Best Value Picks

  1. Collin Morikawa (+2000): Collin Morikawa hasn’t had his typically brilliant season, though he’s shown signs of breaking out of a funk. Sitting 20th on the points list, the two-time major champ has bookended a T-5th at the U.S. Open with another top-5 at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, with a pair of missed cuts sandwiched in between. His last start Morikawa was second in birdies and sixth in putts per green in regulation.
  2. Jordan Spieth (+4000): Jordan Spieth missed the cut in Memphis, which was a surprise given his form leading into the championship. His two prior starts he was T-10th at the Scottish Open and T-8th at the Open Championship. He’s had top-20’s in six of his last ten tourneys, with five of those top-10’s, including a victory and a runner up. Given his relatively strong play of late, the MC was probably a blip, and at +4000, he sports great value.
  3. Brian Harman (+7000): In three of his last five tournaments, Brian Harman has landed inside the top-10. Those were a T-8th at the Travelers, T-6th at the Open Championship and last week, a tie for third at the FedEx Cup Playoffs opener. The last time he teed it up he was fourth in strokes gained: approach and eighth tee-to-green.
