Tour Championship Odds: Day almost even-money FedEx Cup favorite

Can Jason Day win three of four? (USATSI)

Can Jason Day win three of four?

There’s only one tournament left in the 2014-15 PGA Tour season, and it’s a big one. The Tour Championship is this weekend. The winner will earn more than $1 million, and could win the FedEx Cup, which would add another $10 million. Jason Day has seemingly won every tournament for the past two months. He will be the favorite to take home the FedEx Cup with a victory at the Tour Championship. He will also be one one of the only five who can win the whole thing with a win at East Lake.

Here are your other favorites.


Jason Day: 5-4
Jordan Spieth: 7-2

Nos. 1 and 2 in the FedEx Cup standings. They both control their own destiny. But so do the next few folks (who offer better value).

Other favorites

Rickie Fowler: 6-1
Henrik Stenson: 6-1
Bubba Watson: 12-1

Watson at 12-1, eh? All he has to do is win the tournament. He doesn’t need any help from anyone else. I’ll bite at 12-1.

Fringe favorites

Rory McIlroy: 15-1
Dustin Johnson: 15-1
Zach Johnson: 20-1
Justin Rose: 30-1

I don’t understand how Watson is 12-1 (and needs no help) and Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson are 15-1 (and need a ton of help). If you’re going to go long, really shoot for the moon and take Bill Haas or Brandt Snedeker at 250-1. At least they have both won here before.
