Australia’s Cameron Smith is just two strokes off the pace ahead of the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston on Tuesday morning.
Smith carded a four-under third round to move into a tie for fourth and is priced at $11 at Sportsbet to win the event. He is $2.20 to finish in the top five.
The surprise leader heading into the final round is Mexico’s Abraham Ancer.
He hit three straight birdies to open the day and finished with six-under to take a one stroke lead heading into the final day of the Labor Day long weekend event.
Ancer is $7 to claim victory in Boston on Tuesday morning.
24-year-old California native Bryson DeChambeau, who is coming off a four-shot victory in the first FedEx Cup playoff event, shot a 63 on Saturday while playing alongside Tiger Woods.
He is now one shot behind Ancer at 12-under and is the $4 favourite to win the event.
Brit Tyrrell Hatton who is also on a score of 12-under joins DeChambeau. He is $6 to prevail on Tuesday morning.
Another Englishman in the event is Justin Rose. He is two shots back on 11-under, but his experience and guile make him the most threatening of the chasing pack. He is $6 to win the tournament at Sportsbet.
Tiger Woods is six shots off the pack in a tie for 16th spot after carding a three under third round score. Countryman Brooks Koepka matches Woods’ score of seven-under.
Woods birdied three of his first seven holes in the third round, but shot even par the rest of the way.
He is $3.50 finish inside the top 10 at the end of the fourth round at Sportsbet, in a price that represents some value, particularly given his strong start to the third round.
Rory McIlroy ($15) and Jordan Spieth ($17) both have an outside chance of claiming wins on Labor Day. They finished the third round tied for eighth at nine under. Spieth is searching for his first event win of the year.
It was McIlroy who impressed on Sunday, shooting a 32 on the front nine, which even included a bogey.
He has a monstrous final round ahead of him if he hopes to win his third Dell Technologies Championship, after missing some wonderful opportunities on the back nine during the third round.
