2024 Wells Fargo Championship Odds, Predictions: Favorite, Picked from Field

The second major of the season is on the horizon, but there's one more PGA Tour event before we get there.

Some of the game's best golfers will make their way to Charlotte, North Carolina for the Wells Fargo Championship before the PGA Championship.

The tournament is played at Quail Hollow Club, a par-71 track measuring 7,521 yards, with bermudagrass greens.

When it comes to tournament betting, we've got you covered with everything you need, from odds to best bets.

Let's dive into its action.


Scotty Scheffler has a notable absence this week. He is awaiting the birth of his first child, relieving other golfers of his 2024 dominance. On a side note, if you're looking to catch some Scotty action this week, despite him sitting out, you can now bet on whether he'll win all four majors this year.

So who is in favor of this event? Look no further than Rory McIlroy, who currently sits at +650 to win it all. He won the tournament three times, setting a course record in 2015.

Wyndham Clarke, who set the shot total record when he won the tournament last year, is listed at +1600 to win, the third-best odds. Sandwiched between McIlroy and Clarke comes Xander Schauffele at +900.

Now that we've covered the basics, let's get to the top favorites and my portfolio for this tournament.

Odds and Fields*

Rory McIlroy: +650 (Bet $10 to win $75 total)
Xander Schauffele: +900 (Bet $10 to win $100 total)
Wyndham Clark: +1600 (Bet $10 to win $170 total)
Patrick Cantley: +1800 (Bet $10 to win $190 total)

To make long-shot outright bets

If you follow me Twitter Or read this column, you know I like to bet on golf long shots (+1500 to +2000 or more). There's something thrilling about holding a lottery ticket late on a Sunday. It also presents you with multiple hedging opportunities if you want to eliminate some of your risk.

I know there are some big names in this week's event, but long shots in 2024 are moot. Many of my bets this week are based on course history and form, so here are some people worth splashing the pizza money on:

Tommy Fleetwood +2500
Justin Thomas +2500
+2500 with Thegala
Tony Finau +3500
Will Zalatoris +4000
Byeong Hun An +4500
