BMW Championship odds 2022: Should you go right back to Will Zalatoris?

Winning PGA Tour events in back-to-back weeks is a seemingly impossible feat, though it's one Tony Finau accomplished no more than two weeks ago. Will Zalatoris, who finally broke through on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, could similarly see the floodgates open in the 2022 FedEx Cup Playoffs.

The case to go right back to Willy Z is strengthened by the fact that, historically, multi-winners in the playoffs have become the rule rather than the exception. In each of the last two seasons, which have featured only three playoff events, someone has won two of them (Patrick Cantlay in 2021, Dustin Johnson in 2020). Before that, Bryson DeChambeau won the first two playoff events in 2018, and Rory McIlroy won two of the last three in 2016. Jason Day, Billy Horschel, Henrik Stenson, Rory McIlroy (again, 2012), Vijay Singh, Camilo Villegas and Tiger Woods all won multiple playoff events, too.

This week, Zalatoris enters leg two of the playoffs, the BMW Championship, at 14-1 to win outright on the DraftKings Sportsbook (16-1 on FanDuel). He's currently No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings, and should he win again this week he'll remain there and take a three-stroke "lead" into the Tour Championship at East Lake. 

McIlroy, who, as we know, has had plenty of success in the playoffs, is the solo favorite for the second straight week. Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay and Matthew Fitzpatrick check in next, with World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler also near the top at 16-1. Cameron Smith is 18-1.
