Books like Thomas’ Tour Championship odds

Justin Thomas will begin the Tour Championship with a two-shot advantage on Thursday, and sportsbooks like his odds of converting that lead into his second FedEx Cup title on Sunday.

Thomas is the odds-on favorite by most every book, with the lone difference being by how much.

Coming off a victory at the BMW Championship that vaulted him to No. 1 in the standings heading into the Tour Championship, Thomas will tee off at 10-under par in the first round. Patrick Cantlay will be 8 under, followed by Brooks Koepka (7 under), Patrick Reed (6 under) and Rory McIlroy (5 under).

Thomas is being offered at +221 by PointsBet to win the tournament, while DraftKings has him at +250. DraftKings is also offering Thomas at -278 to finish in the top five and -1000 to finish in the top 10.

Cantlay (+450 by PointsBet) is followed by Koepka (+500) and McIlroy (+750), but the book likes Jon Rahm’s odds (+1300) better than Reed’s (+1600), despite Reed coming off a victory just two weeks ago. DraftKings has both players at +1700. Rahm has six top-10s in his past seven events, including a win at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The Tour Championship is a no-cut event with only 30 players.

DraftKings is offering a +3300 prop bet that an albatross will be made in the tournament, a +450 bet that it will go to a playoff (-770 for a No Playoff bet) and a +1400 bet for any individual round that a hole in one will be made.

The book is also offering several bets on the winning margin that take on an extra element with the weighted start: After a Playoff (+450), by one stroke (+300), by two strokes (+400), by three strokes (+500) and by four or more strokes (+150).
