2022 BMW Championship Best Bet to Win

Our model hasn't spotted any significant edges in the outright market, but we've picked winners without the DimersBOT before and we can certainly do it again! When searching for who stands out amongst the top golfers in the world, that guy is none other than Xander Schauffele. 

Schauffele is one of the most well-rounded players on the PGA Tour, and he has the most favorable odds (+2000) of anybody that our model believes has at least a 5.0% chance of winningThis course is supposed to play extremely long and it's going to favor players that can avoid making big mistakes. That's huge for a guy like Schauffele, as he has a nice combination of distance and accuracy off the tee — which is necessary on a course that will require players to hit lengthy shots. He's also extremely reliable with his irons and putter. 

You might be tempted to go with one of the bigger names on tour, like McIlroy, or somebody with a better payout, but Schauffele's steadiness is exactly what you need to win at this golf course. He's the star you'll want to back this week. 


2022 BMW Championship Value Pick To Win

While his odds aren't that much longer than Schauffele's, our favorite value play of the week is Sungjae Im at +2500. 

We just spoke about what is required to win at this golf course and a lot of that boils down to distance and accuracy off the tee, plus the ability to hit good approach shots. Well, Im is 30th on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy this season, third in ball striking off the tee and ninth in strokes gained tee-to-green. He's going to be able to help himself a lot with his ability to let the big dog eat.

Im is also better with his irons than you would think based on the statistics this year. If he gets hot with his putter, he can absolutely win this tournament. 


2022 BMW Championship Computer Pick - DimersBOT Best Bet of the Weekend

While our model didn't have anybody that stood out to win this thing outright, it does love Alex Noren to finish in the Top 20 at +330. 

Noren withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Championship last week, but the DimersBOT gives him a 32.0% chance of finishing in the Top 20 here.

Noren hasn't shown as much consistency as you'd like this season — he has missed a lot of cuts and has also had to withdraw from events — but he does have three Top 10 finishes and seven Top 20 finishes in tournaments he has played this year. And as a golfer that was formerly ranked eighth in the Official World Golf Rankings, it's clear he has the ability to perform at a high level at this golf course.

Noren also has to finish in at least sixth in order to have a shot at playing in the Tour Championship, so the motivation will definitely be there.
