OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — PGA fans and bettors are in for a great day of golf action with the BMW Championship taking place on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. EST from Olympia Fields Country Club in Olympia Fields, Illinois.
Ahead of tee time, legal sports betting sites have Dustin Johnson listed as the favorite to win as he is coming off a big win last week.
BMW Championship Winner
- Dustin Johnson +800
- Jon Rahm +950
- Justin Thomas +1100
- Bryson DeChambeau +1200
- Xander Schauffele +1400
- Rory McIlroy +1600
- Colin Morikawa +1800
- Daniel Berger +1800
- Hideki Matsuyama +3300
There should be no questioning as to why Dustin Johnson is seen as the favorite being that he is coming off of a first-place finish last week at the Northern Trust where he won by 11 shots with a final score of 30 under par.
This is one of the best individual performances that any golf fan has ever seen and is certainly the reason that his odds are favored where they are.
John Ram is someone else who not only had a great outing last week at Northern Trust shooting 16-under (sixth place) but he also finished 7-under at the PGA Championship (thirteenth).
Being that he has placed fairly low in his last two tournaments, it is only fair that his PGA odds are up there with the favorited for the BMW Championship.
Justin Thomas is up there with the favorites as he is coming off a win at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational where he finished 13-under at the beginning of the month and also a second-place finish at the Workday Charity Open just one week prior.
He did play in both the PGA Championship as well as the Northern Trust but did not have as strong outings there which could be a reason as to why his odds are third on the odds board.
Bettors can expect Thomas to attempt to get back to his normal self during the BMW Championship.
Xander Schauffele could be seen as a bit of a long shot here as listed beyond +1000.
Schauffele has had a pretty solid stretch of tournaments lately as he has not finished outside of the top 25 in his last five tournaments. He finished 14th at the Workday Charity Open, 13th at the Memorial Tournament, 6th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, 10th at the PGA Championship and 25th last week at the Northern Trust.
It is only a matter of time before his consistency pays off and offers a big payout.
