The Barclays Free Picks
EDISON, NJ (ATSConsultants) – TheBarclays will tee off later this morning. Here are some picks to consider for this weekend’s tournament.
According to oddsmakers from GTBets, Jordan Spieth is the favorite to win this tournament, as he has 5/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Jason Day (8/1) and Justin Rose (10/1). The Barclays takes place today-Sunday from Plainfield Country Club in Edison, NJ.
Dustin Johnson is one of the plays we like today. He comes into this tournament with 12/1 odds and is a 2011 winner of this tournament. Johnson has had a pretty good 2015, with one win and eight top 10s. Though he has failed to finish off majors, we think he will have a chip on his shoulder to win the FedEx Cup and that starts here at The Barclays.
Brooks Koepka has really made the climb up the rankings as of late. He has had three straight top-6 finishes and has placed in the top 25 in his last eight events. He has 24/1 odds this weekend and we like that number for him. He is looking to make a big splash this weekend and we won’t be surprised to see him get the win.
Will Wilcox is a 125/1 longshot this weekend, but we think there is reason to take a flyer on him. He has made the cut in five straight, placing 26th or better in those five tournament, including a runner-up finish. He is clearly on a hot streak by his standards and we think that continues this week, where he needs a strong performance to advance in the FedEx Cup playoffs.
