The last regular season event on the PGA Tour is this weekend at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. This is the last weekend to accrue enough FedEx Cup points to get into the top 125 in the standings, and secure a spot in the first week of the playoffs, the Northern Trust Open. Did you know the winner of the FedEx Cup wins 10 million dollars?!?
You’ll find some guys in the field this week that are on the bubble, looking to secure their spot. Aaron Wise (120), Pat Perez (122), Alex Noren (125), Austin Cook (126), Daniel Berger (131) and Jason Dufner (136) all need a good weekend for the right to fight for the FedEx Cup.

Before I get into my picks for the 2019 Wyndham Championship, I have to talk about last week. I killed my picks last week, netting a profit of $665 when betting $100 on each pick.
Brooks Koepka was one of my picks to win last week, and a $100 bet netted us $850. You can see this and all my picks by clicking here.
We also had Patrick Cantlay (T12), DJ (T20) and Hideki Matsuyama (T43). As well, we picked Chez Reavie (+115) to beat Gary Woodland in a head-to-head tournament matchup, and it wasn’t even close. Reavie fired a -3, while Woodland was near the bottom of the leaderboard at +6. That win won us $115 on a $100 wager.
Lets get to it this week, and keep padding our betting bankroll. Here is who I like this week at the Wyndham Championship.
Odds courtesy of America’s Bookie
Hideki Matsuyama +1150
I have been rolling with Hideki the past few weeks and I like him here this week at +1150. Although he doesn’t have a win this season, Hideki has made the cut in all but one (The Open Championship) of the 21 events he has entered this season.
He is currently 29th in the FedEx Cup standings, and is 31st on the OWGR. He has a T3 (Farmers), 6 (the Memorial) and T7 (3M Open) this year, so he’s been knocking on the door multiple times.
Matsuyama didn’t play here in 2017, but finished T11 with weekend rounds of 64 and 65 last year, and finished T3 in 2016. Back him to put together 4 solid rounds and get the win this weekend.
Jordan Spieth +1550
Just a couple years ago, many golf experts were calling Jordan Spieth the next Tiger. He has regressed from those accolades, but word on the street is he’s working his butt off trying to regain his form and is getting close.
Since mid-June, Spieth has a T3 at the PGA Championship, T7 at the Memorial, T65 at the U.S. Open, a missed cut at the Travelers, a T20 at the Open Championship and a T12 last week at the FedEx St. Jude. His ball striking has been on point, and although he hasn’t played here in a while, I like his odds at +1550.
2019 Wyndham Championship – Tournament Matchup
7007 Paul Casey -175
7008 Brandt Snedeker +155
Run, do not walk to your online sportsbook or local bookie and get this Tournament Matchup booked! Sometimes the secret of betting is being able to find a line that is incorrect. The linesmakers don’t get them all right.
In my opinion, this is exactly the case with this tournament matchup with the defending champ Snedeker at heavy dog at +155 against Casey -175.
Sneds missed the cut two weeks ago at the Open, but has carded 4 solid rounds in most tournaments since March. While the same can be said for Casey, he hasn’t been seen at the Wyndham for years.

Looking back at Snedeker’s card from last years here, his 59 in round one put him in the lead and he never looked back. He followed that sub-60 with a 67, 68 and a closing round 65. I’m all over this one!
Take Brandt Snedeker at +155 to beat Paul Casey in their Wyndham Championship – Tournament Matchup.
Brandt Snedeker +1950
Any time you can get a defending champ that went under 60 the year before with odds of +1950, I’m taking it! Read my assessment above in his matchup versus Paul Casey to see why I like Snedeker in this spot.
Other golfers I like this week:
Webb Simpson +800 – he’s the favorite this week, but his track record here is worth a few bones.
