We make our first and only trip to Massachusetts for the 2017 Dell Technologies Championship, an event that debuted in 2003 and has seen the margin of victory two or less strokes in each of the last six years. After a wonderful showing in The Northern Trust last week, we can only hope for another tight event as we hope to cash on some winners. The season is quickly coming to an end, so let’s make it count.
You know the drill by now…

Here are five golfers to consider throwing on your card this week.
Paul Casey - Paul Casey has finished no worse than 13th in each of his last five events, which includes a fifth place finish last week. Casey hasn’t missed the cut since the Sony Open, has 15 top-25 finishes, and he’s third in greens in regulation percentage as well as eighth in scoring average. If that wasn’t enough to consider Casey with +2500 odds, he finished runner-up in this event last year when it was known as the Deutsche Bank Championship. Casey is a strong play given his current form and what he accomplished last year.
Louis Oosthuizen - Louis Oosthuizen has finished 24th or better in six of his last eight events, which includes a runner-up finish in the PGA Championship and a top-10 finish last week. Oosthuizen has been one of the more consistent golfers this season who doesn’t have a victory. Oosthuizen is 10th in sand save percentage and 23rd in scoring average. As for this event, Oosthuizen finished eighth last year and has finished no worse than 12th in all three of his appearances overall. Oosthuizen is worth a play with +3000 odds.
Rory McIlroy - The fact there’s golfers who have better odds than Rory McIlroy make him a must-play with +1400 odds. Sure, McIlroy wasn’t a threat last week and has had spotty results overall the last couple of months, but we’re still talking about somebody who has won this event twice, which includes last season with a -15 to par. McIlroy has won two of the last five events here, proving this is an event that can get him back on track. Past performances are big with me, which is why I’m taking a shot here.
Kevin Chappell - Kevin Chappell has snapped his streak of missed cuts by finishing 13th or better in three of his last four events, which includes a sixth place finish last week. Chappell is clearly enjoying his best stretch of golf of the season and now returns to a course where he finished eighth last year and has produced three top-25 finishes in his last four appearances overall. While everybody is paying attention to the bigger names, Chappell comes in as a live underdog with +4000 odds.
Dustin Johnson - Dustin Johnson kind of fell off a bit after injuring his back and missing the cut in the Memorial and the US Open. Well, after finishing 13th in the PGA Championship and winning last week by holding off a hot Jordan Spieth, it’s safe to say Johnson is back. Johnson has finished no worse than 17th in his last four events and has won four of his last 11 events overall in which he’s made the cut. Also, Johnson has finished eighth or better in two of his last four appearances at this event. While the favorite with +700 odds, Johnson seems like a good play regardless given the way he’s hitting the ball.
