The FedEx Cup Playoffs get underway on Thursday with the 2020 Northern Trust at TPC Boston. Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau are the co-favorites at 12-1 in the odds from William Hill. Brooks Koepka withdrew on Wednesday, ending his 2019-20 PGA Tour season. We simulated this tournament 10,000 times, and there are some MAJOR surprises.
Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been RED-HOT since the PGA Tour resumed in June. In fact, it's up almost $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament. McClure finished up
After nailing a top-five bet (+1200) on Doc Redman at the Wyndham Championship, McClure finished up over $700 yet again last week on his best bets. The model was all over Justin Thomas winning the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational at 12-1. And at the 3M Open, McClure's best bets returned a whopping $1,100 as he nailed a top-five pick on Max Homa (+1200) and a top-20 pick on Talor Gooch (+400).
At the Memorial Tournament, McClure used the model to identify winner Jon Rahm (22-1) as one of his best bets from the start. It also had him as the projected winner heading into the weekend. The model was also all over long shot winner Collin Morikawa at the Workday Charity Open. It identified him as a top contender from the start despite his long odds and McClure recommended an outright bet on him to win at 33-1. The model also called Bryson DeChambeau taking the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Using the model for his best bets, McClure returned a whopping +788 during the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge, including nailing top-five bets on Xander Schauffele at 13-2 and Collin Morikawa at 9-1.
The model was also extremely high on 30-1 long shot winner Webb Simpson at the RBC Heritage. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure's best bets included Simpson winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +3000 return!
This same model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend, including two of the last four. Anyone who has followed it has seen MASSIVE returns.
One major surprise the model is calling for at the Northern Trust: Bryson DeChambeau, one of the 12-1 co-favorites, stumbles big-time and barely cracks the top 10. Another surprise: Xander Schauffele, a HUGE long shot at 20-1, makes a strong run at the title. He's a target for anyone looking for a HUGE payday.
Also, the model is targeting FOUR OTHER golfers with odds of 20-1 or higher who are set to make a surprising run! Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it BIG.
