I usually hate betting on the favorite, but everything seems to be falling into place for McIlroy this week.
He’s Data Golf’s No. 1 course fit, has eight top-10 finishes in a row and he’s returning to a course where he’s played well at in the past (he tied for 12th at the BMW in 2020).
A win outside of Chicago would put him in the No. 1 spot in the points standings and in the driver’s seat to make a run at back-to-back FedEx Cup titles and fourth overall.
