2023 BMW Championship fantasy golf picks, rankings, strategy: Back Lucas Glover, fade Scottie Scheffler

The 2023 FedEx Cup Playoffs began with a bang last week at the FedEx St. Jude Championship. Lucas Glover defeated Patrick Cantlay in a playoff, and it was the second straight tournament win for Glover. The two players will join the rest of the top 50 in participating in the 2023 BMW Championship this week. The event will be held at Olympia Fields Country Club outside Chicago, and the top 30 will advance to next week’s TOUR Championship. Cantlay is the two-time reigning champion at the event, with a fantastic field aiming to prevent him from a third straight win.

Rory McIlroy (+650) is the betting favorite in the latest 2023 BMW Championship odds, followed by Scottie Scheffler (+700), Jon Rahm (+900), and Cantlay (+900). Should you back one of the favorites this week, or is there better value on a longshot like Open Championship winner Brian Harman (+3500) for your 2023 BMW Championship fantasy golf picks? Before you consider your 2023 BMW Championship fantasy golf picks, you have to see the BMW Championship fantasy golf rankings from SportsLine handicapper Eric Cohen.

Cohen is an avid golf bettor who correctly predicted the pre-tournament outright winner of the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic (Rickie Fowler +1400), 2023 PGA Championship (Brooks Koepka +2000), 2023 Honda Classic (Chris Kirk +3500), 2022 Open Championship (Cameron Smith +2200), 2022 U.S. Open (Matt Fitzpatrick +2500), and 2022 Phoenix Open (Scottie Scheffler’s first career victory at +2800).

He is a daily contributor to SportsLine’s YouTube Show “Early Edge in 5” and is a guest on “The Early Wedge” SportsLine YouTube golf show hosted by Jonathan Coachman. Anyone who has followed Cohen’s predictions is way up on their golf picks.

Now, Cohen has ranked his top golfers for the 2023 BMW Championship. Cohen’s picks are only available at SportsLine.

2023 BMW Championship expert picks

One player Cohen loves this week is Lucas Glover. While some may fade Glover after back-to-back tournament victories, Cohen sees value at his current price. Glover’s putting has been strong in recent days, and he leads the PGA Tour in proximity to the hole on approach this season. He ranks in the top 15 of the tour in driving accuracy and strokes gained on approach, and Glover has a very strong 63.76% scramble rate. That includes a top-five mark on the tour when scrambling from at least 30 yards, and Glover’s 13.82% bogey rate for the season is excellent and improving each week with his recent play

On the flip side, the expert is fading Scottie Scheffer. Scheffler is one of the game’s best players with a sky-high ceiling, but he is one of the betting favorites in the event and Cohen sees better value elsewhere. Scheffler’s putting issues are considerable, both in recent days and throughout the season. He ranks 146th on tour in strokes gained putting this season, and he is outside the top 100 in putts per round, one-putt percentage, and putting accuracy inside 10 feet. Scheffler is arguably the best player in the world from tee-to-green, and it shows in the metrics, but the putter can hurt him. In addition, Scheffler is struggling by his lofty standards, including back-to-back tournaments in which he has finished outside the top 20. See all of Cohen’s BMW Championship picks at SportsLine.
