Experts Backing Justin Thomas In the TOUR Championship
Who doesn’t like +1700 odds? Experts say that Justin Thomas is one of the best bets in this weekend’s tournament. Importantly, Thomas is starting 6 strokes back from the leader, Patrick Cantlay. Cantlay is starting -10 in this wonky tournament format. However, our resident Golf expert, Bradley Gibbs is in agreement with Jason Sobel, Pat Mayo, and the other well experts above.
Justin Thomas Has Some Of the Best Tee-To-Green Stats At East Lake.
Gibbs explains, “Picking up 2.66 strokes per round on average at East Lake, the 28-year-old ranks as the second-best player in this field in terms of strokes gained: approach, which is eye-catching ahead of a tournament at a course where approach should be critical, while he’s also rank number three here when it comes to strokes gained: tee-to-green.”
Thomas is excellent on this course and so is the favorite Jon Rahm. Rahm is typically a strong performer here and gains an impressive 2.18 strokes per 18 holes at this course. Rahm and Thomas are the major “must-haves” this weekend in DFS.
