Golf Betting Tips: Our BEST BETS for the BMW Championship

The BMW Championship is the penultimate event of the PGA Tour season and after Sunday afternoon, there will only be 30 players left who progress to the Tour Championship. 

Jon Rahm may have had a disappointing finish on Monday afternoon at the Northern Trust, but it was yet another top-5 finish for the World No.1 and he is the favourite to win in Maryland this week.

Tiger Woods has won the BMW Championship on two occasions and he won the Western Open three times as well, which was the previous name of the tournament.

After his win on Monday afternoon, Tony Finau is now at the top of the FedEx Cup standings ahead of Jon Rahm and Cameron Smith in second and third place. 

Although all three of these players showed great form in New Jersey, we have three fresh selections for you to ponder for the BMW Championship this week.

Dustin Johnson - 20/1

Dustin Johnson has won the BMW Championship twice, most recently in 2016 when he secured a three-stroke victory at Crooked Stick Golf Club.
 
The World No. 2 has admittedly not been in great form of late, missing two of his last three cuts and he has not won a tournament since The Masters back in November.
 
Nonetheless, Johnson has a great record in the FedEx Cup Playoffs, recording six victories in the post-season events and at 20/1, this is a great price for a player who can blow away the field when he is in form.
 

Louis Oosthuizen - 28/1

Louis Oosthuizen must be wondering how he hasn't won a tournament on the PGA Tour this season. He has finished second at the US Open and the PGA Championship and also tied third at The Open Championship.

The World No. 7 is on the edge of a victory and although he may lack the winning conviction needed over four rounds, 28/1 is an attractive price for one of 2021's most impressive performers.

Marc Leishman - 140/1

Marc Leishman won the BMW Championship in 2017 and he also came second in 2009 when Tiger Woods romped to victory at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club.

The six-time PGA Tour winner has made the top-10 on four occasions this season and he has form at this event in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. At 140/1 and as a former winner of the tournament, the Australian is definitely worth an each-way punt.
