Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm are the golf betting favorites this week, with Thomas at +1000 and Rahm at +1200 at a course that tests clean tee shots and precise play around the greens.

The field also includes defending Wells Fargo Max Homa at +3500 who returns to a course that he looked like a natural on during his 2019 win. Homa was mistake-free and sunk birdies on Sunday for a four-under 67 finish.

The Wells Fargo has plenty of A-list players as usual so there should be no shortage of fighting for the top spot. And Quail Hollow is a course that offers plenty of Golf Channel highlights! Here are the top-five favorites through +2000 to win the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship outright according to Intertops.

Justin Thomas +1000

Jon Rahm +1200

2021 Wells Fargo Championship Preview

Where: Charlotte, North Carolina

Course: Quail Hollow Club

Format: Stroke Play

Par: 71

Length: 7,600

When: May 6 – May 9, 2021

Purse: $8.1 Million.

TV Coverage: CBS/Golf

Quail Hollow allows for long drives and aggressive shots to well-protected greens. Players can take some chances on the holes with larger greens to shave shots by coming in high. However, Quail Hallow demands tight shots with little room for error.

Creeks, water, and bunkers tighten fairways that look wind open. Players often like to go high here with “dive bomb” style shots to the green… if conditions allow. But weather may be a factor this week during the opening rounds. Winds may force many to try to keep balls low.

The last several holes of Quail Hollow are nicknamed “the Green Mile” due to the perfection needed by players to survive without losing strokes!

The 16 hole is 506-yard par 4 that has a dogleg onto a tight water-lined fairway that sets up a tricky approach shot to a green which is also protected by water and there is a huge bunker to the right. Hole 17 is a par 3 that plays along the water to a green, wrapped by more water, with a front bunker.

The course finishes with a par 4, hole at 494 yards that’s a seemingly straight shot except for the narrow start to the fairway and the creek in the middle of the landing zone. The creek then protects the left side of the fairway and the green with bunkers along the right.

2021 Wells Fargo Championship Picks

Jon Rahm +1200

Quail Hollow may be the course where Jon Rahm gets his next PGA victory. Rahm comes in with four straight finishes inside the top ten and ten overall this season. Rahm had a slight back injury at the beginning of the season but has recovered and his scores show it; T5, T5, and 7th in his last three starts.

Viktor Hovland +2200

Viktor Hovland will be able to rocket a few drives this week and take advantage of some of the longer Quail Hallow holes. He looked sharp last week at Copperhead where he finished T3 after a strong weekend. Hovland has only been a pro since 2019 and he’s already racked up two PGA wins.

Tony Finau +3000

Tony Finau has been so close to topping the leader board the last two seasons that it seems to be a talking point every week. The Wells Fargo Championship is a great opportunity for him. The course is well suited for his long drives and around the green skills. He finished T10 at the Masters.

Others I Like: Bryson DeChambeau comes in at +1400 to be the PGA outright winner this week and his driver is perfectly suited for Quail Hollow. If he keeps things off the tee under control, then he’ll need his game around the green to be fired up at the same time. Defending Champion Max Homa is at +3500 heading into Thursday’s round. The tournament was canceled last year so he’s had some extra time to think about how he defends his title. In 2019 he put on a clinic by staying in the fairway and attacking greens with precision. He finished 15 under and winning by three strokes.
