WHY WE’LL WATCH: Because when $18M is on the line, we can’t turn away. An $18 putt makes us nervous. Will Scottie Scheffler’s two-shot lead in the staggered start hold up? He’s two clear of Patrick Cantlay, four of Xander Schauffele.
COURSE INFO: East Lake is no joke. Start with length – a par-70 north of 7,400 yards featuring four par-3s over 200 yards. Add slick greens, cross winds on tight fairways and intense bunkering.
THE FAVS: The betting beauty is that there are two tournaments in one. Scheffler (+200) and Cantlay (+400) are favored to win the FedEx Cup, while Rory McIlroy (+650) and Jon Rahm (+800) top our Outrights board for 72-hole low score.
INSIGHT: Scheffler leads in bets placed. But McIlroy (+1000), despite starting six shots back, is getting the most handle.
