2018 Dell Technologies Championship Odds & Preview

2018 Dell Technologies Championship Odds & Preview

Written by on August 29, 2018

The PGA Tour is going to undergo some scheduling changes in the 2019 season, with the PGA Championship being played earlier than usual and the FedEx Cup seeing some changes, too. One of those will result in the removal of the Dell Technologies Championship form the calendar, which means that this will be the last time we head to the TPC Boston course for what is always a fantastic event. This will be the second event in the 2018 FedEx Cup, with the field now reduced to the top 100 point earners. That number will be reduced to 70 for next week and then 30 for the final event of the season, so it’s all to play for at this wonderful 7,216-yard Par 71 course. Let’s take a look at some of the odds favorites to win the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship.

Dustin Johnson

The #1 player in the world now finds himself down in second place in the FedEx Cup after seeing Bryson DeChambeau win at the Northern Trust last week. Johnson finished just outside the top 10 last weekend, ending in a tie for 11th. It was probably not the result that he was looking for, but it’s hard to be disappointed with that type of finish when you are up against the best 125 players in the world right now. I would not be surprised to see him back in the top 10 this week, although I am not playing him to win.

Justin Thomas

When trying to figure out who to play on any given week in the PGA Tour, I think it’s always a good idea to look for players who perform well at a specific course or event. If you agree with me on that then you need to take a look at Justin Thomas this week, as he is the current champion at the Dell Technologies Championship. Thomas held off Jordan Spieth last season, winning this event by 3 strokes. He had a top 10 finish last week, so he is certainly in a good vein of form.

Brooks Koepka

Is Koepka a safe bet to win the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship?In a year where you win two majors, you would expect to be among the favorites in every tournament that you take part in. Such is the case with Koepka, who is having himself a career year. The success that he has had this season has helped Koepka become the #2 player in the world, as well as being in the hunt for the FedEx Cup, where he is currently #5. He landed in the top 10 last week, tied for 8th alongside Justin Thomas, which makes it 3 top 10 finishes in a row.

Rory McIlroy

This is the time of the season when players can start to wind down mentally and physically, which may explain why the Irishman decided to skip the Northern Trust last week. He is going to come into this event fully fit and well rested, which makes him the man to beat here, in my humble opinion. This is actually a similar type of scenario that occurred in the two years where McIlroy won this event, and I am on him to grab his third win at the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston this coming weekend.
