Bet golf with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
The next stop on the PGA Tour is in Charlotte, North Carolina, as many of the best golfers in the world are set to compete in the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club. This is the first time this tournament is being played since 2019, as last year’s competition was cancelled due to COVID-19.
William Hill Nevada has futures up for 98 different golfers plus the field (all others) for this event, with Justin Thomas standing alone at the top at +900.
Thomas was tied with Jon Rahm for the lowest odds yesterday at 12/1 before dropping to his current price. Rahm has also seen a shift to 10/1, with Bryson DeChambeau close behind at 14/1.
Viktor Hovland is next at 16/1, followed by Will Zalatoris, Xander Schauffele and Rory McIlroy at 18/1 apiece. McIlroy is the only two-time Wells Fargo Championship winner, including posting a tournament record 21-under par back in 2015. McIlroy, though, has fallen to 15th in the latest world golf rankings due to his struggles on the course, his lowest spot since 2009.
“Rory has played well there, so we’ll see if he finds it here,” said Nick Bogdanovich, Director of Trading for William Hill US. “He’s taken off for a while, he hasn’t been out there since the Masters. Obviously he’s been working with his coach to try and get back to form over that time, and maybe relaxed a little too. But the longer he goes without winning, the higher his odds will continue to creep up.”
Meanwhile, Zalatoris has shot up to 18/1 all the way from 35/1. Zalatoris came in 42nd at the RBC Heritage a week after a second-place finish in his Masters debut.
After taking off the past two weeks, the 24-year-old has already been a popular wager early on to win the Wells Fargo Championship. He currently ranks second in total dollars wagered at 13%, and is tied for second in total number of tickets at 5%.
Webb Simpson has the eighth-lowest odds at 22/1, with Tony Finau and the field (all others) nearby at 25/1 each. Patrick Cantlay and Patrick Reed are at 30/1, then six golfers are at 35/1. One of them is Max Homa, the defending Wells Fargo Championship winner. Homa won by three strokes after shooting 15-under par in 2019.
William Hill Nevada also has released 20 head-to-head tournament matchups, highlighted by Thomas (-120) vs. Rahm (EVEN) and DeChambeau (-120) vs. Schauffele (EVEN).
