The Northern Trust Odds: FedEx Cup Top 125 Confirmed

Sunday’s incredible 6-man playoff at the Wyndham Championship wasn’t the only excitement on the line in last week’s PGA Tour event. The final field for this year’s FedEx Cup playoffs was finalized with Roger Sloan (beaten in the playoff), Scott Piercy and Chesson Hadley all playing their way into the top 125 in the rankings and making the lucrative Northern Trust this week.

The Northern Trust Odds: Jon Rahm Returns To Action

Waiting for those last-minute entrants are the best players in the world and one-man in particular who has dominated the game in recent weeks; Jon Rahm. US Open winner Jon Rahm missed the Olympics earlier this month due to a positive COVID test, but makes his return to the golf course this week at the first of the FedEx Cup playoff events. Unsurprisingly, he also tops the betting board in the Northern Trust odds list.

The Northern Trust Odds: Dustin Johnson And Collin Morikawa The Challengers to Rahm

Though Rahm is the betting favorite this week, he doesn’t come in to the event in the top spot on the FedEx Cup rankings, that position belongs to British Open champion Collin Morikawa. Jordan Spieth is hot on his heels in 2nd place with the likes of Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson (the defending champion at the Northern Trust) and Rory McIlroy all knowing they’re going to have to contend this week to catch the FedEx Cup leaders.

View the favorites in the Northern Trust odds list below:

Player Northern Trust Odds
Jon Rahm +1100
Dustin Johnson +1600
Collin Morikawa +1800
Jordan Spieth +1800
Xander Schauffele +2000

The Northern Trust Predictions & Picks

If you’ve come to OddsChecker to read our Northern Trust odds betting preview, you’ve probably watched many of our weekly PGA Tour picks videos starring Geoff Fienberg and Rick Gehman. If you haven’t, you’ve been missing out! Geoff and Rick will be live on our YouTube channel and picks page HERE tomorrow with their break down of the best bets and Northern Trust predictions. If you can’t wait too long, here’s our early view on the best Northern Trust picks.

What do you need to succeed at Liberty National this week? That’s the question all the golf handicappers will be asking this week. Liberty National favors supreme ball-strikers with the likes of Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Justin Rose all playing very well there in recent years and there’s no better ball striker in the game right now than Collin Morikawa. Morikawa leads in strokes gained tee-to-green, strokes gained ball striking and strokes gained approached in his last 24 rounds on the PGA Tour and it’s hard to see why he won’t compete this week.

He'd be our early pick to win the Northern Trust. You can back Collin Morikawa at best odds of +1800.
