2017 Wells Fargo Golf Betting odds Championship on May 7th at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. As sportsbook fans who bet on golf know, the “Green Mile” is considered one of the toughest finishes in the PGA Tour.
Dustin Johnson +450
This event will mark the return of World No. 1 to a PGA tournament since winning the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in March. Johnson had to withdraw from the Masters after “accidentally” falling down some stairs. Perhaps Matt Hardy was involved somehow? Prior to that Johnson had been en fuego, and while he remains the favorite on paper, it has yet to be seen whether the prolonged lay off has affected his gameplay – and if so, how.
Jon Rahm +1150
The deceptively-named Spaniard finished second to Johnson at the Dell Match Play, and it would appear as if the American brings the best out of Rahm; the World No. 13 has gone on to place T10 at the Houston Open and t27 at the Masters. If Rahm really does benefit from DJ’s competition, then that’s good news for fans who bet on golf and who back the Spanish golfer.
Adam Scott +1650
‘Great’ Scott missed the cut at the Shell Houston Open but bounced back with a T9 finish at the Masters – his first top 10 finish since SMBC Singapore Open.
Paul Casey +1650
The English golfer is on a bit of a roll as of late, tying for 9th place at the Match Play and placing 6th at the Masters – his best finish in Augusta, enough to render him a second-tier golf betting favorites to win Wells Fargo.
Kevin Kisner +2550
Kisner’s second place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational may have been a flash in the pan, what with it being followed by T17, T43, and T11 finishes at the Match Play, Masters, and RBC Heritage, respectively. Nevertheless, fans who bet on golf might give him the benefit of the doubt.
Phil Mickelson +2050
Lefty was a Wells Fargo Championship runner-up in 2010 – back when it was known as the Quail Hollow Championship – when he lost to two-time winner Rory McIlroy. Mickelson had back-to-back top 10 finishes at the Mexico and Match Play World Championships, but finished tied for 55th and tied for 22nd in Houston and Augusta, respectively.
Bill Haas +3250
Not unlike Kisner, Haas finished an unexpected 3rd at the Dell Match Play but went on to tied for 36th at the Masters and miss the cut at the RBC Heritage.
Daniel Berger +3250
Berger followed a 5th place finish at the Houston Open with a T27 at the Masters – down from T10 last year.
Patrick Reed +3550
Reed has missed the cut in three of the last four PGA Tour events – and he skipped the RBC Heritage – and yet he has better golf betting odds to win the Wells Fargo Championship than, say, 2014 winner JB Holmes. To paraphrase the Bard, as flies to wanton boys are we to the odds.
