The BMW Championship: Picks, Plays, Predictions

We roll into Chicago, Illinois this week and the Olympia Fields North Course for this weeks BMW Championship. It is the second week of the FedEx Cup Race to the Championship. The field is down to the top 70 players in the points standings.

After last weeks crazy low scores from Dustin Johnson and Scottie Scheffler, it will be interesting to see if this week brings some crazy scoring as well. If you read last weeks article, I told you to use Scheffler on all your fantasy lineups.

The betting favorite this week is Dustin Johnson at 8-1. Some of the other favorites that I like are Justin Thomas at 12-1 and Webb Simpson at 20-1. As always I look at these odds when picking my anchors to my lineups.

This weeks article is going to be short and sweet. Justin Thomas ($16900), Xander Schauffele ($16400), and Webb Simpson ($15900) are where I am putting my money and anchoring my fantasy lineups. Justin Thomas won the event last year and is 4th in the FedEx standings. Do not be surprised if he and Johnson are battling it out till the end for the title. Schauffele and Simpson have been my go to golfers when I was not sure which way to turn. This week is no different. I want consistent scorers and consistent cut makers.


Adam Hadwin ($12200) and Brian Harman ($11700) are my bargain plays this week for fantasy golf. Both have high FTTP and are realitively cheap plays.


The values on the players are using the FantasyDraft site as I always use them for their fan friendly structures and payouts.

As always mix it up a bit, have fun, and as always MAKE SOME MONEY!
