2021 Tour Championship Odds: Patrick Cantlay, Jon Rahm Favored To Win Tour Championship
2021 Tour Championship Odds & Betting
What an unbelievable finish we got this past week at the BMW Championship. It looked as though the event was Bryson DeChambeau's for the taking, but Patrick Cantlay battled and stayed with him, eventually winning in a lengthy playoff.
Now, we head to the final stage of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the Tour Championship.
One of the best parts about the Tour Championship odds is there are so many different ways to bet them. You can play them with the season-long standings handicap, or you can play the 72 holes this weekend straight up.
Either way you play it, we're getting the 30 best golfers on Tour this year in an event with no cuts and millions of dollars on the line. Do some people dislike the Tour Championship format? Yes, it's far from perfect. But, it sets up for good drama and great golf.
If you don't know how the Tour Championship works, the winner of this weekend's event is crowned Tour champion, but unlike other events, the golfers don't start on an equal playing field. Each golfer is given starting strokes based on their current FedEx Cup points standings. First place starts 10-under par, second place starts 8-under par, third place gets -7 and so on.
Read on below for a full 2021 Tour Championship odds, starting strokes and course breakdown.

If you're a PGA Tour fan you're familiar with East Lake Golf Course. East Lake has been the permanent home of the Tour Championship for 16 years now, starting with the 2005 Tour Championship. Before that, it was hosted at East Lake on a few occasions, starting in 1998.
Last year, it was Dustin Johnson who came into the Tour Championship at -10 and won it by holding off the rest of the field. This year, Patrick Cantlay, fresh off his BMW Championship, will try and do the same for his first Tour title.
