PGA Deutsche Bank Championship Winning Predictions

Written by on August 31, 2016

The FedEx Cup playoffs are heading into their second week this coming weekend after the first round of players were taken out of the equation at The Barclays last week. The field for the Deutsche Bank Championship, which will be held at the TPC Boston course, is set for 100 players, but there may be a couple of exceptions. Danny Willett has chosen to sit this one out, and there are also doubts about Henrik Stenson who had to retire during the first round last weekend because of issues with his knee. That little detail may actually mean something for Stenson if he does decide to play, but we will get to that a little later in this piece. Find the latest betting odds here.

Course Information

The TPC Boston course is 7,297 yards long, and is listed as a Par 71. This will be a much easier challenge than what the players faced at Bethpage Black last weekend, and there will be an opportunity for some low scores to be posted here. In recent years, the average winning score in this tournament, which is always played at the same course, has been between -15 and -22, so look for the eventual winner to be somewhere in there. This is a course that favors players with a strong approach play game, which will help narrow down your betting options here.

Your Betting Options for The PGA Deutsche Bank Championship

There are three different ways that you can wager on the PGA event this weekend, and it all begins with trying to figure out who will be at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday afternoon. It’s no real surprise that Jason Day is in as the favorite, as he seems to be the top dog in every tournament that he plays in nowadays. While most of you might be avoiding Henrik Stenson and his dodgy knee, it is worth noting that he withdrew from the US Open in the early rounds for the same reason, only to come back and win the following weekend. Will history repeat itself in Boston? We will take a closer look at the potential favorites in a separate article, so be sure to look out for that.

If trying to pick a single winner from a field of 100 seems like a little too difficult, why not just opt for wagering on who the first round leader will be? There are players on the tour who have made a habit of getting off to a fast start, which again helps narrow down your betting options. Wait around and see what the weather conditions are going to be like, and then start looking at which players do better on how the course is playing.

Finally, you can skip all of that if you want, and instead wager on individual match-ups. This is an opportunity to have several different bets going on the opening round, and it also makes the tournament a lot more fun, as you will not just be focusing on a single player. Get your wagers in today, and best of luck this weekend.
