McIlroy tees it up for the first time since his near miss at The Open, but significant support for him to bounce back has seen him cut into 9/1 from 10/1, who are paying each-way backers down to ten places.
The four-time major winner is chased in the betting by World Number 1 Scottie Scheffler, who is 12/1 second favourite ahead of the only course winner in the field, 14/1 shot Justin Thomas.
Sheffield’s Matt Fitzpatrick, who sits 14th in the current FedEx list following his major championship breakthrough at the US Open, has also been backed into 20/1 from 22/1, while Ireland’s Shane Lowry is a popular each-way pick at 25/1 as he continues to seek his first victory of the calendar year.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: “Rory McIlroy went close in the majors this year and punters are convinced he will bring his A game to the FedExCup playoffs.
“We’ve had to cut him into 9/1 from 10/1 already and given his form this season it’ll be no surprise if he gives them a huge run for their money.”
