Favorites, Darkhorses, and Underdogs for the Wells Fargo Championship

by WagerHome Blog on May 4, 2021

After a cancellation a year ago, the Wells Fargo Championship is back. And while last weekend’s field at the Valspar Championship was a little light on big names, this week at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, 10 of the top 15 golfers in the world will be teeing it up for the $8.1 million purse.

With just two tuneups left before the PGA Championship in South Carolina, the golfing world has descended upon North Carolina to get itself ready.

Odds to Win Wells Fargo Championship

Justin Thomas (+800)

Jon Rahm (+900)

Bryson DeChambeau (+1400)

Xander Schauffele (+1600)

Viktor Hovland (+1800)

Rory McIlroy (+1800)

Webb Simpson (+1800)

Tony Finau (+2500)

Patrick Cantlay (+2800)

Patrick Reed (+2800)

Will Zalatoris (+2800)

Justin Thomas was the betting favorite last week and he ended up tied for 13th. He’s the favorite once again, and now in an even better field, and his +800 number doesn’t justify the risk of placing a bet. 

Rory McIlroy is the course record holder here with his -21 back in 2015. At +1800 he’s among the favorites, but still provides solid betting value. This is also where he won his first ever PGA Tour event back in 2010, and despite his recent struggles, he is a different golfer on this course.

It’s hard not to be a fan of Will Zalatoris after his incredible run at Augusta, and no doubt he is playing well. But if you are looking to bet on Zalatoris at +2800, you really should put that money toward Patrick Reed or Patrick Cantlay, also at +2800. Reed is the seventh ranked golfer in the world and Cantlay is ranked 11th, and both are much better bets to win in a solid field like this.

Wells Fargo – Best Value Underdogs

If you’re looking to bet someone outside the top 10, think about Max Homa and his +3400 payout. He won at this tournament the last time it was played (2019) and was incredible on the greens. He’s also playing well currently, with six top-25 finishes in his last eight tournaments, a win at the Genesis Invitational, and sixth place finish last week at Valspar.

Also, give Keegan Bradley a look. He’s coming off a second place finish at Valspar and two tournaments ago at the Zurich Classic he tied for fourth. And better yet, he’s completely under the radar this week and paying +5000.
