PGA Handicapping the 2013 FedEx Cup Betting

Bet On The PGA Tour

The FedEx Cup point race keeps chugging along and although we haven’t seen a ton of change at the top, we have begun to notice the obvious paths that each individual golfer has taken in order to win the most lucrative prize on the PGA TOUR.

FedEx Cup Betting – Where We Stand Heading into the Summer

Some are playing just a few events and are winning their way to a top 10 spot and others are taking the volume approach – playing a ton of events and accumulating valuable points every week. None of the top 10 in the standings as they currently sit has more than a single win so far other than Mr. Woods who currently leads the chase by a mile.

Here is a look at some of the serious contenders for the prize, their odds as it stands and what should play out during what is shaping up to be an incredible summer of PGA golf. We’ll start with the #1 played in the standings and go down the standings as they sit heading into June.

Tiger Woods 3-2 odds – Woods currently leads the by 866 points – just seven tournaments played with an astounding four wins and another top five along the way. Nobody is betting against him now – he has re-assumed that dominant status of five years ago. The only danger to Tiger not winning the FedEx Cup is Tiger himself – will he be able to stay away from injury? Will he play enough events to hold off some of the more active players on TOUR? And…. Will Lindsey Vonn keep Woods grounded enough and keep his eye on the prize – rather than her prize?

Brandt Snedeker 8-1 odds – Sneds has played 10 events this year with a win and six top 10s – consistent as they come and Woods’ biggest threat in the eyes of the oddsmakers. Snedeker has an ability to hang around in tournaments – nothing flashy but effective in terms of points gathering. He is a whopping 866 points behind Woods right now and needs wins to catch up – wins have been a tad hard to come by although Sneds has knocked on the door more than his share this year.

Matt Kuchar – 15-1 odds – Kuch is third in the standings and has taken a volume approach to third place in the standings – 11 tournaments played with a win and four other top 10s. Kuchar is certainly in that top tier of golfers with an all around game that is the envy of most. He already sits 1251 points back of Woods and has a ton of ground to make up.

Kevin Streelman – 500-1 odds – He is fourth in the standings currently with a win and five other top 10s and is that unheard commodity on TOUR that always seems to surface in the FedEx Cup. He has played 14 tournaments already (double that of Woods) and is 1106 points back in the standings. With bigger, more established names around him and the pressure mounting it is hard to see Streelman lasting in the top 10. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Billy Horschel – 500-1 odds – Has been mighty impressive this year and is fifth in the standings having played 13 times with a win and 5 top 10s. He has been in seemingly every tournament entered and may be the most trustworthy of the long shots to win the FedEx Cup.

Boo Weekley – no odds posted – Boo, off his win last week is new to the top 10 and has played the most of anyone in that group – 15 times with a win and four top 10s on the year. He is a “B level” golfer after an “A level” prize. He is sixth in the standings currently but is not expected to stay there too long.

Phil Mickelson – 20-1 odds – Phil has been inconsistent this year – 11 starts – one win way back at the beginning of the season and three top 10s. He is in seventh place in the standings and is 1337 points back at present and doesn’t seem to have the game to challenge this year.

Keegan Bradley – 30-1 odds – just can’t seem to get over the hump and although most expect a breakthrough at some point this season, it is hard to see him winning the FedEx Cup. He is 1366 points back, has 14 starts (double Tiger Woods) with zero wins and six top 10s. He is better than he’s been playing but seemingly not much of a threat for the Cup.

Adam Scott – 15-1 odds – Like Tiger has played an abbreviated TOUR schedule – just six starts with a win and three top 10s and currently sits in tenth place in the standings – 1421 points behind Mr. Woods and good for 10th in the standings. If he plays more on North American soil, he could be the biggest threat to Tiger and the FedEx Cup crown!

Rory McIlroy – 12-1 odds – currently sits in 31st place – amazing. Let’s just chalk this up to a lost season for Rory and look forward to him returning to prominence next year.
