For the first time in the playoffs, Tiger Woods is no longer the favorite in Vegas to win a FedExCup event, after the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino installed Rory McIlroy as a slight 6-to-1 favorite to win the BMW Championship.

Woods always seems to be the chalk pick for the oddsmakers, but it would appear even Vegas decided that two wins in less than 30 days was enough to give McIlroy the nod following his come-from-behind win at the Deutsche Bank.

Of course, the opening odds in golf usually don't mean a whole lot, so take the favorite talk with a grain of salt. Woods, at 7-to-1, and Dustin Johnson, at 12-to-1, rounded out the top three.

There are currently six players at 20-to-1 (including Phil Mickelson and Luke Donald) and three at 25/1 (Brandt Snedeker, Sergio Garcia), and with playoffs winding down, you can expect to see a number of big names grouped together at a particular number.
