125 golfers will take part in the Northern Trust tournament this weekend, the 1st leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs. That’s 30 golfers short of standard PGA tournaments, with the top 65 and ties making the cut right next to the Hudson River this weekend.
Jon Rahm is the favorite in Jersey City this weekend, but this is a course that features smaller than normal greens. That means elite putters like Jordan Spieth (16:1) have value as do golfers who excel in greens in regulation like Collin Morikawa (20:1).
Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed are two time winners in this tournament over the past five years with Bryson Dechambeau also capturing a win in 2018. Reed won the last time this alternating tourney was held in Jersey City, with a 1 stroke victory over Abraham Ancer in 2019.
2021 The Northern Trust Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Jon Rahm +1000
Jon Rahm is a favorite for a reason at Jersey City, as he led the field in greens in regulation the last time the tournament was held here in 2019. Rahm has only played two PGA tournaments in the past two months, but won the U.S. Open and finished 3rd in The Open at Royal St. George’s.
Rahm is going to battle the dreaded rest vs. rust after a long layoff, but he’s had time to spend with his newborn and should be anxious to finish out the season strong. It doesn’t hurt that Rahm is 3rd in GIR because half the battle at Liberty National is landing it.
2021 The Northern Trust Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Collin Morikawa +2000
You have to put a little flow on Collin Morikawa this week, as his game seems built for Liberty National. Morikawa is 2nd in the PGA in greens in regulation, 2nd in strokes gained ball striking, and also in the top 12 in putting average.
Morikawa also rises to the occasion in these big events such as the opening leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. He won the Open Championship, finished in the top 5 at the U.S. Open, and should be rested after a 26th place finish at the St. Jude Invitational two weeks ago.
2021 The Northern Trust Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Emiliano Grillo Top 10 +1000
Emiliano Grillo has just 4 top 10 finishes in 28 events this season, but the big question is how? We’re talking about the #4 guy in greens in regulation who is also 5th in ball striking. Grillo missed the cut here in 2019, and in 4 of his last 6 tourneys overall – but this course could play well for his style.
2021 The Northern Trust Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Patrick Reed Top 20 +175
Not much love for Patrick Reed from the oddsmakers who have made the 2019 winner at Liberty National a 50:1 outright winner for the 2021 event. Reed missed the cut at The Open and has finished 25th or worse in the last four tournaments he’s finished. That being said it’s hard to overlook a guy who has won this tournament twice within the last five years. A top 20 finish is well within the realm of possibility.
