2018 BMW Championship Odds and Picks

Favorites

  • Dustin Johnson +850
  • Justin Rose +1200
  • Justin Thomas +1400
  • Brooks Koepka +1400
Last year, Marc Leishman shot a -23 to capture the BMW Championship. He beat Justin Rose by 5 strokes. Rose could take the trophy this year because he golfed extremely well at the Dell Technologies Championship, this past weekend’s PGA Tournament. Rose finished second at the 2017 BMW Championship after hitting a 65-67-70-68 270. He finished at -14, 2 strokes off winner Bryson DeChambeau. Rose should have his sticks ready to go. If he’s in position for the win on Sunday, he might close the door on his competition. 2018 PGA BMW Championship Odds Favorite: Justin Rose

The Second Choices

  • Rory McIlroy +1600
  • Bryson Dechambeau +1600
  • Tony Finau +2000
  • Jordan Spieth +2200
  • Jason Day +2200
  • Tiger Woods +2200
  • Hideki Matsuyama +2500
  • Rickie Fowler +2500
At +2500 odds, it’s hard to look past Rickie Fowler. Fowler skipped this past weekend’s tournament, the Dell Technologies. He probably skipped the Dell Technologies to concentrate on the BMW Championship. Fowler shot a -18 at last year’s BMW Championship. He tied for second place with Rose. Also like Rose, if Fowler’s on his game, and he should be if he spent the week practicing shots, he could win the trophy. 2018 PGA BMW Championship Odds Second Choices Pick: Rickie Fowler

The Underdogs

  • Francesco Molinari +2800
  • Tommy Fleetwood +3000
  • Jon Rahm +3300
  • Adam Scott +3300
  • Patrick Cantlay +3500
  • Phil Mickelson +4000
More than just this golf bettor has burned money on Jon Rahm. Rahm, who was scorching earlier this year, missed the cut at the Northern Trust Open before finishing 43rd at the Dell Technologies Championship. It’s hard to have faith. It’s also hard to knock how well he played at the 2017 BMW Championship. Rahm shot a -15. Leishman beat him by 8 strokes, but second place finishers Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler only beat him by 3 strokes. Rahm’s good enough to bounce back from the bad Dell Technologies finish. After his 17th place finish at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, he shot a -11 to finish 4th at the PGA Championship. Rahm offers great value at +3300. 2018 PGA BMW Championship Odds Underdog Pick: Jon Rahm
