BMW Championship betting tips for this week’s PGA Tour tournament. Read on for our expert tips for the BMW Championship taking place at Medinah GC in Chicago, Illinois.

BMW Championship

It was a great weekend for us on the PGA Tour after Patrick Reed landed a lovely 45/1 winner with success at the Northern Trust and we move to the second leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs full of confidence and all with much healthier bank balances. This week's it's the BMW Championship which comes from the venue of the greatest comebacks in golf history Medinah GC, where Europe produced the "miracle" to beat the US back in the 2012 Ryder Cup.

These high quality American fields have the same look and feel about them week in and week out with Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy topping the betting lists again this week at 8/1 and then it's Spains' Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson next in at 14/1, which seems to be the same market shake up over the last week months. Every week I suggest opposing the favourites, and it's the same again as McIlroy just doesn't win enough, Koepka plays his best in the majors, Rahm is currently underpriced and DJ is far to erratic, as he showed last week in New York.

There is no course form as such to go on this week as this venue has only been used for the Ryder Cup and for the 1999 and 2006 PGA Championships, which was won on both occasions by Tiger Woods, who given his form and his injury problems isn't worth considering even at 45/1 to make it three from three in Chicago.

Three From The Tee

Adam Scott @ 25/1 William Hill

There are only 70 players in the field, which makes it a looks a rather tempting each-way betting heat, but they are the best players in the World and one man who is looking to get back to the top of the game is in-form ADAM SCOTT and the Australian is my main selection this week at 25/1 with a number of bookies, but shop around for the best each-way terms. Scott was third at this venue at the PGA Championships in 2006 and he arrives in the windy city after a very impressive fifth last week at Liberty Island. That was his fourth top 10 finish in the last three months and the reason for his return to form has been his putting with him high on the putting stats last week in New York. Scott, is getting better and better each week and is a proven winner with 29 professional victories worldwide and with doubts about the tournament favourites his is a value option to win again this weekend.

Ian Poulter @ 60/1 Betfred

One man who has the fondest memories in the field of Medinah is IAN POULTER and the European Ryder Cup talisman was on fire in the foursomes in 2012 and at 60/1 with Betfred he looks the best each-way option. Not only has Poulter played well at this venue in the Ryder Cup, he also finished inside the top 10 at the PGA Championships in 2006 and given his current good form, he is a very interesting proposition this week. The Englishman finished in 14th at the Scottish Open and since he has returned to the PGA Tour he has had back to back top 10 finishes at the Northern Trust last week and the St Jude Invitational and at a venue which is full of incredible memories for the 43 year-old he will be right up for the challenge.

Andrew Putnam @ 80/1 William Hill

My final selection is ANDREW PUTNAM at the general price of 80/1 and he looks the best of the outsiders to challenge this week. Putnam is high on all the stats presently, which suggests that his golf game is in good all round shape and he looks destined to win very soon as he has been Mr consistent over the last few months. Last week at Liberty Island the 30 year-old finished in T12, which was his fifth top 25 finish in his last eight starts and he isn't far away from adding to his only Tour success which was last year at the Barracuda Championships and he is my outsider of this quality field to keep on your side over the next four days.
