The third leg of the FedExCup Playoffs is this weekend's BMW Championship at Cherry Hills Country Club in Colorado.  This tournament cuts the playoff field to the 30 players who'll compete for the title next weekend in Atlanta.

As has been the case for the past several weeks, Rory McIlroy (5-to-1 odds at the LVH SuperBook) tops the board at a price for shorter than the next closest competitor. No. 2 on the LVH board is Adam Scott at 12-to-1.

Jason Day comes in at 15-to-1, outpacing a group of four (Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson) at 20-to-1.

Matt Kuchar (25-to-1), Jim Furyk (25-to-1), Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan (40-to-1) are each in the mix for the FedExCup championship and are worth keeping an eye on this week.

The Linemakers' lean: "There's just something about Bill Haas when it comes to the FedExCup Playoffs," says our golf handicapper Brian Blessing. "30-1 isn't the best price in the world for him, but he usually contends at this stage of the season. Based on last week, Geoff Ogilvy (50-to-1) is a viable longshot option."
