After an insane finish to The Northern Trust last week, the worldís top golfers will clash in the Dell Technologies Championship this weekend. This is yet another playoff event, so these golfers know what is at stake here. Dustin Johnson was the one who emerged victorious last week, as he sunk a clutch putt to force a playoff against Jordan Spieth and then ended up winning on the first playoff hole. Johnson has now won four tournaments on the year and will definitely have a good shot at winning his fifth this weekend. Rory McIlroy will, however, be the name worth keeping an eye on in this one. McIlroy has won the Dell Technologies Championship twice in his career, as he won in 2012 and then again last year. McIlroy has shot a combined 35-under in his two victories in this event, so expect him to really come out with some confidence in this one. With that out of the way, letís now take a look at some of the better values to win this event this weekend:
Dustin Johnson (7-to-1) - Johnson was unbelievable in The Northern Trust, as he sunk clutch putt after clutch putt to give himself a chance to beat Jordan Spieth in a playoff in that one. He seemed out of it at multiple times throughout the course of the weekend, but he pulled it off in the end and was masterful in the playoff hole that ultimately won it for him. Johnson should now be brimming with confidence when he takes the course on Thursday, and you should expect him to give himself another chance to win it this weekend. And the value is excellent at 7-to-1.
Rickie Fowler (14-to-1) - Rickie Fowler is coming off of a solid showing at The Northern Trust, as he shot a two-under to finish tied for 20th in the tournament. Prior to that event, Fowler had finished inside the top-10 in four of his previous five outings. Two of those were majors, so he is clearly doing a good job of performing when the pressure is on. And while Fowler has never won a major in his career, that is of little importance when considering the fact he has won some big tournaments. He won this one back in 2015, and is a good guy to take a chance on winning again at 14-to-1.
Rory McIlroy (14-to-1) - Rory McIlroy might be in a bad way right now, but there is no denying his brilliance in the Dell Technologies Championship. Last year, McIlroy shot a 15-under to defeat Paul Casey by two strokes in this tournament. It was the second time he has won this thing, as he also shot a 20-under to win back in 2012. If he can recapture that magic then his value is incredible at 14-to-1. Itís worth taking a shot on, even for a small amount.
Phil Mickelson (140-to-1) - Mickelson hasnít been much of a factor since the early half of the season, but heís far too good of a golfer to ever be going off at 140-to-1. Mickelson won this tournament back in 2007, but he has not been inside the top-two since. And while itís a long shot that he finds his way back there this weekend, itís still worth putting a very small amount on him at these odds.
