PGA Golf: Wells Fargo Championship Betting Picks & Tips

Wells Fargo Championship

At Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte North Carolina, the Wells Fargo Championship will take place this weekend. The course is going to change this season, as Quail Hollow will host the PGA Championship in August, which means this event will take place at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington. This is a stroke play tournament, with a $7.5M purse. The last time this event was played; James Hahn won in a playoff in 2016 at -9, while the previous season Rory McIlroy came away the winner with a record -21.

Dustin Johnson +500

The best golfer in the world is coming off two first place finishes, but they both came in March. Of course, Johnson did not participate in the Masters, due to the back injury the night before the event. He has already earned more than $5.3M from his season. Even when he didn’t win, he finished 6th at Kapalua, and 3rd at the Pebble Beach Pro A+M. If Johnson is healthy enough, this guy is going to win.

Jon Rahm +1100

The hot name in the PGA Tour is Jon Rahm. The 22 year old finished 27th at the Masters, which broke a streak of three Top 10 finishes. Rahm did not win either event, but he already has taken down more than $3.5M this season. Look for Rahm to be there when the dust settles on Sunday. The odds for Mr. Rahm at +1100 makes him a very sexy pick for this event in North Carolina.

Phil Mickelson +2200

It’s hard to wrap up an event without including lefty in as one of the possible winners. The 46 year old lefthander finished 22nd at the Masters, but showed some pretty good form in Mexico at the beginning of March. This guy is crafty, and a new course is something that will give him an advantage. He has seen it all before. At +2200, you cannot be too upset if you are wanting to bet on Mickelson.

J.B. Holmes +3500

The 2014 winner of the event has not been great in 2017, but knowing the landscape of the courses there in North Carolina should give him a boost. Holmes finished 50th at the Masters, and his best finish this season was 12th in Mexico. Look for Holmes at +3500 to be in the mix when push comes to shove on Sunday.

Louis Oosthuizen +4500

There is always a guy that you have this hunch over. At the Wells Fargo, that guy is Louis Oosthuizen. His odds at +4500 are ripe for the pickin’. The 34 year old has been pro since 2003. From South Africa, he certainly is enjoyable to watch. He is going to go over $1M winnings with this event this season. He has not finished in the Top 20 in any of his last four events, but his third place at Phoenix looms large.

There is a look at the Wells Fargo Championship Betting Picks and Tips. We expect it to be a great weekend of golf, and the winner will walk away with nearly $1.4M in prize money. The purse is up to $7,500,000 – which is up $200,000 from last season. Our pick to win the event is Phil Mickelson at +2200. Lefty was the runner up in 2010, so he knows the event, but on a new course, take the veteran. Best of luck!
