Finau trails favourite Rahm on BMW Championship odds
Tony Finau will be looking to build on his victory from this past weekend at the Northern Trust when he returns to action this week sporting a line of +2500 on the odds to win the BMW Championship at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
Finau needed a playoff to claim his first win on the PGA Tour in over five years, and now sits atop the FedExCup standings heading into opening-round action of the 15th edition of the BMW Championship on Thursday at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Maryland.
This past weekend’s victory marked a dramatic reversal in fortune for Finau. The 31-year-old American struggled badly after turning in an eighth-place performance three months ago at the PGA Championship, finishing better than 20th just once while missing the cut on two occasions over seven outings prior to last weekend’s victory. However, Finau has been a consistent performer in recent appearances at the BMW Championship, finishing among the top 10 in each of the past four years, capped by a fifth-place result in 2020.
Jon Rahm continues to lead the way at the top of the BMW Championship odds as the +650 favourite at online betting sites. Justin Thomas follows as a +1600 second favourite on those golf odds, ahead of Collin Morikawa, who joins Xander Schauffele at +2000, while Bryson DeChambeau is listed as a +2200 wager.
Rahm returns to the top of the odds board despite his failure to maintain the lead he took into the final round of the Northern Trust. However, he remains arguably the most consistent golfer on the PGA Tour this season, finishing among the top 10 in 13 of his 20 outings, including his victory at this summer’s U.S. Open. Currently sitting atop the World Golf Rankings, Rahm also returns to the BMW Championship as defending champion, and has finished among the top five in three of his four previous appearances at this event.
Thomas snapped a run of 11 straight finishes outside the top 10 with a fourth-place performance last weekend. Conversely, Morikawa was bounced from his perch atop the FedExCup standings by missing the cut at the Northern Trust, and has now finished off the pace in two PGA Tour appearances since falling just shy of the podium at the Tokyo Olympics. Schauffele has also struggled of late, with his 16th-place performance last weekend marking his best finish on the tour since claiming a share of seventh place at the U.S. Open.
Elsewhere on the BMW Championship odds for this week, two-time tournament champion Dustin Johnson is one of six golfers joining Finau at +2500 odds to win the event. Corey Conners leads all Canadians at +5000, while Mackenzie Hughes lags as a +15000 wager.
