The penultimate round of this week’s FedEx Cup playoffs presents an interesting conundrum for bettors with the BMW Championship taking place at Wilmington Country Club, which is hosting a professional tournament for the first time.

But what we should be assured of is a battle where few players will give up because not only is there a chance of promotion to the top 30 and earning a spot in next week’s Tour Championship , but also a higher ranking will give East Lake a better chance of winning the $18 million top prize.

As the season draws to a close, it’s inevitable that some players will end well while others find everything a little difficult, and we can ride that wave by backing Brian Harman to get the better of Mito Pereira in a 72 – hole match betting – there is no cup in the 70 player tournament.

The small southpaw Harman isn’t the biggest hitter on the tour, but he could still be a factor in Wilmington as he looks to build on his No. 23 FedEx standings.

His third-place finish at the FedEx St Jude Championship last week was his best performance of a season that yielded six top-ten finishes, as he built on a sixth-place finish at the St Andrews Open.

He shouldn’t be dismissed this week, as most of the success that took Pereira to 42nd in the rankings came a while ago.

The Chilean missed four cuts before finishing 42nd last week and it could be that his race was run.

Open champion Cameron Smith is out this week, and former Masters champion Adam Scott could use it to be Australia’s top finisher in Wilmington.

There have been signs of life from Scott, who has always been a great ball-striker, and he was fifth in Memphis last week which moved him up to 46th in the standings and with a chance to make the next week’s showdown.

Cam Davis looks like his main rival and has posted five successive top-20 finishes, but he may have a little too much to do from 52nd, so there’s a chance Scott could get his nose in front. .

Rivals Marc Leishman and Lucas Herbert have shown little in recent weeks to suggest they will be a factor in Delaware.
