The Northern Trust betting tips for this week’s PGA Tour tournament. Read on for our expert tips for The Northern Trust taking place at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey.

The Northern Trust

The FedEx Cup Playoffs begin this week at the star-studded The Northern Trust from Liberty National Golf Club and it really is a who's who of the golfing world assembled over the next four days.
The 125 man field has the look of a major about it with the World's best gathered in downtown New York and it's the World number one Brooks Koepka who tops the betting lists this week at 8/1 which is available across the board. The four time major champion and a winner on his last start at Southwind a fortnight ago is always a popular choice with golf punters, but his record at this event isn't very good with his best finish a eighth last year which sits alongside a couple of missed cuts.

Koepka is without question the hottest player in the World presently, but given his course record he makes no appeal at single figure prices and I want to oppose him as I do tournament second favourite Rory McIlory who is priced up at the generally available 11/1. Rory, is far too inconsistent to be considered as a potential winner this week and in his current rounds he plays far too many careless shots along with sheer brilliance and with those frustrations it's hard to make a case form him to be backed at the short prices. The Northern Irishman, like Koepka is another with a poor record at this event with no better than a 22nd finish in the last six years and that is fair enough reason to look elsewhere.

I am not liking Jon Rahm either who is next in the betting at 16/1, despite me being a huge fan of the Spaniard. Rahm finished third at this event in 2017, but he played below par last year to miss the cut and I will be backing course specialist and former World number one Dustin Johnson in a 72-hole match bet against him. DJ almost made the final three at a very tempting 18/1 and the winner here in 2017 has finished no worse than 18th in the last four starts, but he isn't at his best and looks tired to me, but I do expect him to do the best of the leading contenders and is a confident selection to beat Rahm.

Other players who almost made the final three where Tony Finau at 50/1, but the American just doesn't win enough, but holds good each-way claims as do course specialists Adam Scott and Jason Day , who like Finau both just fell short of the final three at 45/1 on both former winners.

Three From The Tee

Justin Thomas @ 20/1 bet365
* Odds correct at 12:51 BST on 6/8/2019

My headline selection is JUSTIN THOMAS who looks primed for a win very soon and hopefully it's this week at the general 20/1, which is available with most bookies. Thomas has made the top 10 in the last three years at this tournament, and in his last four starts at Liberty National his lowest finish was 16th which was in 2015. The 26 year-old had a poor June, which saw him miss the cut at The Memorial and The US Open, but he's looked good in his last two starts with an impressive 11th at The Open championship and that has given him confidence again and he continued that good form into the WGC St Jude Invitational where he ended up in 12th and should have finished higher, but for a poor final round 71. Thomas, will have taken a lot from his performance at The Open and the nine time PGA Tour winner will be looking to end the season on a high in the FedEx Playoffs and at a venue where he always performs well and has the best course average in the field, he ticks all the boxes of a potential winner this week.

Patrick Cantlay @ 22/1 William Hill

Another young American is my second selection and that is PATRICK CANTLAY at the general price of 22/1. The 27 year-old has had a fantastic season with the highlight his win at The Memorial, which was his NINTH top 10 finish of 2019. Since that success in June his form has dropped from those high standards that he set in the spring, but a 12th finish in his last start at the St Jude Invitational and a recent 15th and The Travellers shows you that when holding your cash Cantlay will always give you a run for your money. This season in 19 starts he has made the top 20 in 14 of those and with two top 10 finishes at this event in the last two years and playing the best golf of his young career he will be in the mix on Sunday.

Patrick Reed @ 45/1 Coral

The last two weeks PATRICK REED has made my final three only to cost me money, but I am sticking with the former US Masters champion to make it third time lucky for me at a huge 45/1. Reed is a former major winner, a six time PGA Tour champion and a winner of this event in 2016 and he is playing some great golf at the moment, but just can't put four rounds together ,but when he does, well it's just a matter of when rather than if,  he returns to the winners enclosure. Since missing the cut at the PGA Championships in June the 29 year-old has played some great golf with three top 10 finishes in his last five starts. Last weekend he didn't play that well at the Wyndham Championships, but he ended with fantastic round of 63 which will see him arrive at one of his favourite venues full of confidence and a confident Reed is a dangerous opponent.
