2021 Wells Fargo Championship: PGA Tour Betting Odds

Now that we are into May, the run-up to the PGA Championship officially begins this week on the PGA Tour with a visit to the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Justin Thomas is favoured on the golf odds.

Since many guys don’t like to play the week before a major, especially with travel still not all that easy these days, this will be the last time many top players tee it up before the PGA Championship begins on May 20 not far from Charlotte in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

The Wells Fargo Championship debuted in 2003 under a different name. Quail Hollow Golf Club is a par 71 at around 7,520 yards and hosted the 2017 PGA Championship won by Thomas. That year, the Wells Fargo was not held at Quail Hollow so the course could be readied for the major championship. The toughest stretch on this course is the finishing three holes known as the “Green Mile.” Water is in play on all three holes. With Quail Hollow hosting the Presidents Cup in 2022, that year’s Wells Fargo Championship will be moved.

Last year’s tournament was cancelled due to the COVID pandemic, so the defending champion is American Max Homa. He finished at 15-under 269 – he was part of a three-way tie after 54 holes — to beat out second-place Joel Dahmen by three shots in 2019.

Homa, the 2013 NCAA individual national champion, got his second victory earlier this year at the Genesis Invitational. Homa was the fifth player to ever make the Wells Fargo Championship his first Tour win. Two big names also did so: Rory McIlroy in 2010 and Rickie Fowler in 2012. While the Wells Fargo Championship hasn’t gone to a playoff three straight years, it has seven times overall in its fairly short history. Homa is +3700 to repeat.

Justin Thomas is +900 and his best result in this tournament is a T7 in 2015, but as noted above did win the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. He comes off a T13 on Sunday in Florida at the Valspar Championship.

Jon Rahm is +1100 with Bryson DeChambeau +1400, Rory McIlroy +1600, Xander Schauffele +1700 and Viktor Hovland +1900. Rahm hasn’t played this tournament since 2017 when it was at a different course and he finished T4. DeChambeau was T4 when he played here last in 2018.

McIlroy is the only player to win this tournament twice, also doing so in 2015. He shot a tournament-record 21-under 267 that year and won by a whopping seven shots. Schauffele’s best result here is T24, while Hovland is making his tournament debut.

No Canadian has won this event. Adam Hadwin was T38 two years ago and Nick Taylor T54, while Adam Svensson, Ben Silverman, Roger Sloan and David Hearn all missed the cut. Corey Conners is +2800 this week. He was T42 in 2018 and T21 on Sunday in Florida (highest Canadian finisher). Hadwin is +13700, Mackenzie Hughes +15200, Taylor +17400, Sloan +27400, Michael Gligic +39900 and Hearn +49900.

Wells Fargo Championship Golf Predictions

Take Thomas and McIlroy for Top 10s but the best winner value at +16800 is Pat Perez. He has been T8 and co-runner-up his past two visits.
