11 Best Bets for 2023 FedEx St. Jude Championship

The 2023 FedEx St. Jude Championship will tee off on Thursday, August 10 at TPC Southwind. Scottie Scheffler is currently the favorite to take home the title, as he's +600 over at DraftKings. Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm are close behind though, as both are listed at +900.

Ready for the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Playoffs? We are! Here are 11 Best Bets for 2023 FedEx St. Jude Championship. Let's make some cash!

Corey Conners OVER Keegan Bradley (-120 at DraftKings)

Keegan has had some success here at St Jude in 2021 when he finished 11th. Last year, he missed the cut and before 2021, he had not finished better than 29th.

Conners had his worst finish last season when he finished 28th which was better than Keegan’s best finish since 2020. He has two Top 25 finishes and 1 Top 10 finish in the years previous.

Jon Rahm OVER Scottie Scheffler (+115 at FanDuel)

Scottie had been finishing inside the Top 5 for 7 straight events prior to the Open Championship. There, he finished 23rd.

For Rahm, those type of finishes are like what he has done here at TPC Southwind. He is coming off a runner-up finish at the Open and looks primed for another strong run here at the St. Jude.

Viktor Hovland OVER Collin Morikawa (-115 at FanDuel)

Morikawa has missed the cut in 2 of his last 3 starts. While he did finish 5th here last year, the previous year was a 52nd place finish. The two starts before that 52nd finish were both missed cuts.

For Hovland, he is coming off a 13th finish at the Open and has had some good finishes here at TPC Southwind. 3 of his last 4 events here ended in Top 20 finishes.

Tony Finau OVER Jordan Spieth (-110 at FanDuel)

Tony won this event in 2021 and followed that up with a 5th place finish last year. He runner-up finish in 2018 was just more proof that Tony can go low at St Jude.

Jordan, on the other hand, has a best finish of 73rd over the last 3 years here. He missed the cut in the other 2 starts. Finau should have no problem finishing ahead of Spieth here again.

Brian Harman OVER Russell Henley (-120 at FanDuel)

Henley is coming off a runner-up finish at the Wyndham Championship after missing the cut at the Open. Harman was our Open Champion this season and has not played since. If you throw out Henley’s 8th place finish in 2020, he has 2 finishes outside the Top 55 and 2 missed cuts.

Harman had similar finishes in 3 of last 5 seasons with finishes from 48th – 75th. In 2020 he grabbed 11th and then last year was his best finish which was 3rd.

Cam Davis OVER Stephan Jaeger (-110 at FanDuel)

Jaeger has participated in just 1 St Jude event which was last year where he finished 46th. Cam has had more experience as he has played here over the last 3 years.

31st was his worst finish and last year he grabbed 13th which was his best. He is also coming off a 7th place finish at the Wyndham where he bested Jaeger by 7 places.

Top 30 Finish: Cam Davis (+105 at FanDuel)

In 9 of his 24 events this season, Cam has been able to grab Top 30 finishes. His 31st finish in 2021 was the only time in his 3 starts here where he finished outside the Top 30.

He is currently Top 10 on Tour in strokes gained off the tee. He should be able to use his strong driving ability to finish inside the Top 30 once again here.

Top 30 Finish: Corey Conners (-115 at FanDuel)

Conners has finished inside the Top 30 in 2/3 of his starts this season. He has been tremendously consistent all season. In his last 5 starts here at TPC Southwind he has finished inside the Top 30 in all 5 starts.

In the strokes gained total category, Conners is 21st on Tour and his approaches has been the best where he sits in 13th. Conners should have no problem getting inside the Top 30 once again.

Top 30 Finish: Sahith Theegala (+130 at DraftKings)

Theegala’s putting has been his top statistic this season. He is 32nd in strokes gained in putting and that has been what has kept him afloat all year.

Last season was his 1st year participating in the FedEx St Jude and he was able to get a 13th place finish. He has struggled down the stretch but we believe a Top 30 here is well within his reach.

Top 20 Finish: Brian Harman (+163 at BetRivers)

Harman has Top 15 finishes in 2 of his last 3 seasons here. His strokes gained off the tee and putting have been his crutch over this year.

He finally put it all together in his last start at the Open Championship and got his 1st major of his career. We see him staying on high and getting a Top 20 finish here but falling short of getting the outright win.

Top 20 Finish: Sam Burns (+120 at FanDuel)

Burns is 6th in strokes gained from putting on Tour and has used that to his advantage all year. He is coming off a 14th finish in his last event at the Wyndham Championship.

Here at TPC Southwind, he finished 20th last year and 21st the year before. He is a riskier play here but he most certainly will be right around the Top 20 this weekend.
