Tiger Woods’ odds, best prop bets for the BMW Championship

The FedExCup Playoffs continue this week with the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields Country Club just outside Chicago.

Tiger Woods was able to advance to the second of the three season-ending events despite a disappointing finish last week at the Northern Trust. The 15-time major champion slipped in the FedEx Cup standings from 49th to 57th in the and will need to finish in at least the top-eight if he wants to qualify for next week’s Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

Below, we look at Woods’ odds to win the 2020 BMW Championship and his most interesting prop bets for this week’s PGA Tour event.

BMW Championship: Fantasy golf power rankings

History at Olympia Fields

Woods is one of few in the field with any meaningful experience at Olympia Fields CC. The last PGA Tour event played here was the 2003 US Open. Woods finished in a tie for 20th at plus-3. His second round of 4-under, 66 was his best.

The par-70 course measures 7,366 yards and features Bluegrass (Poa Annua) greens. The fairways are guarded by tight tree lines and fairway bunkers further narrow the landing areas. The heavily-sloped greens are the course’s greatest challenge to scoring low.

Woods is +4000 to win the 2020 BMW Championship, something he’ll need to come close to doing in order to extend his season. He has won this tournament twice before (2007 and 2009), but both of those victories were at different courses.

Tiger finished T-37 while experimenting with a new putter at the PGA Championship. He lost 0.02 strokes per round putting in the event and reverted back to his famed Scotty Cameron flat stick last week at the Northern Trust. He went on to lose 0.44 strokes per round and finished T-58.

He dropped to ninth in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings with last week’s result but is still a relative value while ranked 16th by the betting odds. His final-round 66 last week is enough incentive to place a small wager on Tiger Woods to win the BMW Championship.

Best props

Top-10 finish: +300

Using the motivation of continuing on through the FedExCup Playoffs, place a small wager on Tiger to finish inside the top 10 and give himself a chance to get to East Lake for a triple-up on your investment. He has just one top 10 this season other than his Zozo Championship victory, but he finally showed some promise with his final round last week.

Lowest score over 72 holes – Group D: +340

Woods has +340 odds to post the best tournament score in a group with Harris English (+300), Kevin Kisner (+330), Tyrrell Hatton (+400) and Viktor Hovland (+400). All four have been in a better form of late and much more active since the PGA Tour’s restart.

PASS on a bet here, as Tiger is more likely to be focused on the US Open (Sept. 17-20) and Masters (Nov. 12-15) in the fall schedule.
