Wells Fargo Championship Odds: Rahm, Thomas Favored to Win

The next stop on the 2021 PGA Tour happens this week as some of the world’s top golfers will square off in Charlotte, North Carolina for the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship.

The tournament is set to begin on Thursday, May 6 at the Quail Hollow Club course and will conclude on Sunday, May 9.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, last year’s edition of the tournament was postponed. With things being back on track this year, it’s time to see who has the best odds heading into the event.

According to BetOnline, two golfers share top odds (+1000) to win the Wells Fargo Championship: Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas. On one hand, Rahm has been having quite the impressive run on the 2021 PGA Tour. While he’s yet to win an event this season, he has nine top-10 finishes in 13 events, which includes doing so in his last four in a row. If Rahm keeps playing that way, it won’t be surprising to see him win a tournament sooner than later.

On the other hand, Thomas is entering the Wells Fargo Championship with some momentum of his own. He won the PLAYERS Championship back in March and has finished in the top-25 in both of his last two events. Thomas has also competed at the event three times in the past, with his best results being when he finished 7th in 2015 and 21st in 2018.

DeChambeau Looking to Get Back on Track

At +1400 odds, Bryson DeChambeau has the third-best shot at winning the Wells Fargo Championship, according to BetOnline. The 27-year-old was off to an impressive start when the latest PGA Tour began. He started it off by winning the 2020 U.S. Open and even pulled out a victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this year. However, DeChambeau is entering this week’s tournament coming off T-42nd and T-46th finishes at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and 2021 Masters respectively.

If anyone can use the win this week, it’s DeChambeau.

Fortunately for DeChambeau, he’s had recent success at the Wells Fargo Championship. He competed at the 2018 edition of the event and finished in 4th. Highlights of that tournament include when he shot a 65 and 66 in the second and third rounds respectively.

Another fun fact: if DeChambeau wins this week’s tournament, he’ll become the first golfer on the 2021 PGA Tour to win three events.

Wells Fargo Championship Odds: Can Homa Win Again?

The last time the Wells Fargo Championship was held in 2019, Max Homa walked away as the tournament’s winner. He defeated fellow American Joel Dahmen by three strokes to win the final round. However, at +4000 odds this year, Homa is somewhat of a long shot to win again.

Although, if he does win, he’ll be the first player in the tournament’s history to score back-to-back victories.

Even though the odds aren’t in his favor, Homa could still pull off the win not only because of his experience but his momentum too. After a rough start to the new PGA season, he’s has turned things around as of late. It all started when Homa won the Genesis Invitational back in February. Since then, he’s had a top-25 finish in five of his last seven tournaments, including coming in T-6th at last week’s Valspar Championship.
