The FedEx Cup Playoffs kick off with The Barclays this weekend in New Jersey and look at who's the favorite.

Yep, it's Tiger Woods ... again.

We need to get somebody on researching the last time Woods wasn't the favorite for a tournament in which he was entered.

Here's a look at the odds for The Barclays:


Tiger Woods: 5-1

Other favorites

Adam Scott: 16-1
Henrik Stenson: 18-1
Phil Mickelson: 18-1
Rory McIlroy: 18-1

Fringe favorites

Dustin Johnson: 25-1
Brandt Snedeker: 28-1
Matt Kuchar: 28-1
Jason Dufner: 30-1
Webb Simpson: 30-1
Hunter Mahan: 33-1
Jason Day: 33-1
Justin Rose: 33-1

Not really favorites but we need to list them

Jordan Spieth: 40-1
Keegan Bradley: 40-1
Lee Westwood: 40-1
Charl Schwartzel: 50-1
Jim Furyk: 50-1
Luke Donald: 50-1
Sergio Garcia: 50-1
Martin Kaymer: 50-1

Welcome to the party of superstars, Jordan Spieth.

Spieth's debut on the list of favorites comes at the end of a spectacular year. Before this tournament his lowest odds in a full field had been somewhere around 60-1, I believe.

Also, welcome to the small circle of supernovas, Henrik Stenson. An impressive run capped by the fact that he's in the Mickelson-Scott galaxy betting-wise right now.

In terms of who I like, I think Bradley at 40-1 is a pretty good bet and maybe Schwartzel at 50-1.
