After the first leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the scene will now shift to the BMW Championship being played at Caves Valley Golf Club in Baltimore, Maryland. Once this tournament is over, we’ll be at the final event of the PGA season. Below are some the key metrics we will be looking to find the best 2021 BMW Championship picks along with the sportsbook that is offering the best odds.
Strokes Gained Tee-to-Green
Par-4 Scoring Average
2021 BMW Championship Expert Picks
Patrick Cantlay – (+2500 at PointsBet)
Cantlay is top of the class, in terms of the metrics we’re looking for this week: Scrambling: 1st, Par-4 Scoring: 2nd, SGT2G: 3rd. Last week’s 11th-place finish at the Northern Trust now gives him five finishes of T-23 or better in his last six outings. Cantlay certainly has some ground to make up in the FedEx Cup, sitting just over 1,000 points out of first place.
Justin Thomas – (+2000 at Bet365)
Thomas had a nice fourth-place finish at the Northern Trust last weekend and will look to carry that momentum into this week. He does have key metrics we’re looking for (SGT2G: 4th, Par-4 Scoring: 11th), so JT will need to be prioritized in DFS lineup constructions above all. Thomas is actually right behind Cantlay on the FedEx Cup leaderboard looking to make his big move before the grand finale.
Jon Rahm – (+650 at Caesars Sportsbook)
No one has been more successfully consistent than Rahm of late. Each of his last four outings has resulted in finishes of T-7 or better. If we’re looking for someone to finish in the Top-10 without little resistance, Rahm is our man.
Daniel Berger -(+3500 at Bet365)
Berger has exceptional ranks in all of the desirable metrics- Par-4 Scoring: 4th, SGT2G: 17th, Scrambling: 24th. Prior to last weekend’s T-56 finish at Liberty National Golf Course, Berger had three finishes of T-8 or better in his previous four events. Now that Berger is basically a statistical anomaly to win the FedEx Cup, he can just go out and play loosely without many cares.
Kevin Na – (+6600 at Bet365)
Na has strong ranks in Scrambling (16th) and Par-4 Scoring (19th) and is coming in with the right form. Over his last four outings, Na has two T-2 finishes, a T-8 (last weekend), and T-23; this run now has him at 18th in the FedEx Cup standings.
