Odds To Win The Tour Championship
John Rahm is the odds-on favorite to win the 2021 Tour Championship.
There’s a decent argument that John Rahm has been the best player on Tour this year. He’s fourth in FedEx Cup points, but has a Major to go with 14 top ten finishes. Rahm has “only” that single win, but a player who checks in that often near the top of a leaderboard can’t be discounted.
Still, one wonders why Rahm has “only” that single win.
Patrick Cantlay is second in the odds, but first in FedEx Cup points this year. Cantlay has three wins (BMW Championship, The Memorial and the Zozo Championship) to go with six top tens. That’s a monster year by any standard.
DeChambeau is third in the odds at +575, which matches his position in the FedEx Cup standings. His loss in a playoff to Cantlay this past week is notable in that DeChambeau was putting for the win on every hole, but somehow couldn’t seem to get it done.
Dechambeau has a win (the Arnold Palmer) to go with 8 top ten finishes this year. As with Rahm, he’s always hanging around the leaders. That ultimately will translate to more than the average number of wins.
My personal sentimental favorite is Tony Finau. The consensus “nicest guy on tour” is second in FedEx Cup points, but fourth in the oddsmakers’ standings. This year, Finau has a win at the Northern Trust, seconds at the Genesis and Farmers Insurance Open and 8 top tens overall.
