Pick to win it
Bacon's Pick

Ryan Moore

One of the few guys heading into this event that was on fire in the FedEx Cup playoffs, Moore and Las Vegas were meant for each other (he went to UNLV, where he was a monster). Moore finished in the top-10 in his last three FedEx Cup events, and can hopefully keep the momentum going in the Fall Series.Odds to win tournament: (12 to 1)
Lock for Top 10 finish
Bacon's Pick

Nick Watney

Just another one of those big names that is due to win at TPC Summerlin after finishing second here a year ago. Watney likes Vegas, he has been playing well after a struggle to start his season, and if he doesn't win, will definitely be in the top-10 on Sunday.Odds to win tournament: (15 to 1)
Sleeper
Bacon's Pick

Vijay Singh

What, I'm not crazy! Singh played some solid golf in the FedEx Cup playoffs, not to mention towards the end of his season, where he finished in the top-10 in four of his last 13 events (missing only one cut). He didn't make it to the Tour Championship, but his eighth place finish at the BMW Championship is probably a good buffer for this week's Las Vegas event. Oh, and I've heard he's a HUGE Timberlake fan.Odds to win tournament: (25 to 1)
