Xander Schauffele is making it a race for the 2024 FedEx Cup.

Golf's only two-time major winner of the season now sits second behind Scottie Scheffler by the FedEx Cup odds from our best golf betting sites. Scheffler, a six-time winner this PGA Tour season is still listed with minus odds as a heavy betting favorite and is far clear of the pack in the FedEx Cup standings.

The race for the PGA Tour's Player of the Year award is now expected to go down to the wire with the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club. The final round of the season will be played Sunday, Sept. 1.

As he was in each of the last two seasons, Scheffler's likely to begin the final tournament of the year in pole position at minus-10.

FedEx Cup favorites 2024

Scottie Scheffler (-115)

Scheffler began the 2024 PGA Tour season by staying in consistent contention, as he was for much of the 2022-23 season. He then won the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship in back-to-back weeks before going on to win the Masters, and then the RBC Heritage. That separated him from the field in the FedEx Cup odds, and the floodgates have opened.

The World No. 1 finished outside of the top 10 in just two events this season - The American Express and U.S. Open. He remains among the PGA Tour leaders in all meaningful statistical metrics, and he has seemingly corrected the putting issues that likely cost him several more wins last season.

While Scheffler has built a gargantuan lead in the points race and seems all but sure to enter the Tour Championship with the lead in starting strokes, bettors need to note that he entered the season finale as the heavy favorite each of the past two seasons only to cough up his lead.

Xander Schauffele (+300 via Caesars)

Schauffele will chase his first FedEx Cup at an East Lake Golf Club where he does everything but win. Schauffele finished as the runner-up in the Tour Championship three of the past five years and hasn't finished worse than T-5 in that span.

Now a two-time major winner - winning the PGA Championship and British Open this year - he sits comfortably in second in the FEC standings, more than 1,500 points ahead of McIlroy. There's value in this number for the second favorite based on Scheffler's past struggles at East Lake. 

Best odds: +300 via Caesars | Implied probability: 25%

Rory McIlroy (+425 via Caesars)

McIlroy's odds to win the FedEx Cup - and Tour Championship - are suppressed by his three career victories. He missed the cut in the British Open by a wide margin and admitted to giving up during his second round.

He's 3,400 points back of Scheffler for first and more than 1,500 back of Schauffele for second. Most importantly, he's now little more than 500 points ahead of Sahith Theegala for seventh. McIlroy could begin the Tour Championship six strokes back of Scheffler and there's little reason to believe he could close that gap on the top player in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).

Best odds: +425 via Caesars | Implied probability: 19.05%

My FedEx Cup pick: Sam Burns (+6500)

Burns, a five-time PGA Tour winner, has had a relatively quiet season. He slipped to No. 30 in the OWGR with a disappointing T-31 finish in the British Open. He previously tied for ninth in the U.S. Open following missed cuts in the Masters and the PGA Championship.

But we know Burns can win, and that points can be picked up quickly during the FedEx Cup playoffs. He enters this week at No. 30 in the season-long standings, but he's just over 650 points back of the all-important 10th place.

Burns is among the betting favorites by this week's 3M Open odds. A strong finish there would propel him up the standings and drastically lower these odds.
