Charles Schwab Challenge Odds: Jordan Spieth Favored to Win

The Charles Schwab Challenge is the next stop on the 2021 PGA Tour. Some of golf’s best talents will take to Fort Worth, Texas to compete at the Colonial Country Club from Thursday, May 27 to Sunday, May 30.

As with any PGA event, sports bettors are trying to get their hands on some betting markets to add extra excitement to the event. Fortunately for them, BetOnline has released odds on the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge.

This year, BetOnline is favoring Jordan Spieth to win it all at +1000 odds. The 27-year-old has competed at the event eight times in the past. Throughout that span, he’s had six top-10 finishes, which includes when he won it all in 2016 by going -17 under par.

In total, Spieth has finished in first or second place three times in the tournament’s history, which is pretty impressive in its own right.

Spieth has also been heating up on the current PGA Tour. He has four top-10 finishes in his last five outings, including when he won the Valero Texas Open back at the beginning of April. Considering he’s from Texas and has performed well historically in his home state, it makes sense why Spieth is being favored to win the Charles Schwab Challenge this week.

Justin Thomas Has Next Best Odds

Justin Thomas has the second-best odds to win the Charles Schwab Challenge at +1200 this week. The only time that he’s competed at the event was in 2020 when he finished in 10th. However, Thomas looked impressive in defeat, shooting a 64, 68 and 66 in the first three rounds before a disappointing 71 in Round 4. Still, his performance was enough to consider him a favorite to win it all for the first time this year.

Thomas started off the season with four top-5 finishes in his first 10 events, including when he won the PLAYERS Championship in March, however, things have been going downhill since then. Thomas has finished outside of the top-25 three times in the following five events, and just missed the cut at last week’s PGA Championship. Needless to say, he could use the win to turn his fortunes around.

Can Berger Win the Charles Schwab Challenge Again?

Daniel Berger (+2000) has the chance of making history this week at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Despite how the tournament has been around for 75 years under various different names, no golfer has won it back-to-back since Ben Hogan did it in 1952 and 1953. In fact, that was actually the second time that Hogan won the former Colonial National Invitation twice in a row, with the first being in 1946 and 1947.

Nevertheless, Berger is tied for having the fourth-best odds to win the tournament in order to join Hogan in the history books.

It’ll be interesting to see how Berger performs this year. He does have one win under his belt this season, which came when he won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Valentine’s Day. He’ll be looking to bounce back from a 75th-place finish at the PGA Championship last week, so it’d be wise to keep your eye on Berger in Fort Worth.
