FedEx St. Jude Championship Betting Preview

The top 70 of the best golfers in the world, according to FedEx Cup Standings, will begin the first round of playoffs with this tournament. Once this event is completed, the top 50 will advance to the next tournament. 

The best ball strikers off of the tee will have a slight advantage here. Putting will also be key, as there are fast Bermuda greens to worry about. The course is a Par 70 and is slightly over 7,230 yards.

This event has moved from the previous tournament known as The Northern Trust. Looking at other St.Jude events at this course, the average winning scores hover around -13 over the last handful of years.

Golfers with Best Chance to Win

The following golfers have the best chance to win or at least place within the top 10 at the FedEx St. Jude Championship.

Sam Burns +3500

Burns is making another push besides being a great golfer here, as he is aiming to get the 12th man spot on the Ryder Cup. He has excelled well on courses bearing 7,200 yards and is a threat off of the tee. He is currently ranked as the 20th best golfer in the world.

Patrick Cantlay +1400

Cantlay is currently the fourth best golfer in the world rankings. However, he is following up with a missed cut at the Scottish Open and a T33 performance at The Open recently. He has performed well at courses like this in the past, so maybe he will turn things around.

Viktor Hovland +1800

Hovland is a threat anytime he is near the greens, as he has one of the more dangerous approaches compared to the field. His strong iron play will be key here. He is returning to action after a T13 finish at The Open.
