PGA Wells Fargo Championship Betting Preview & Odds

PGA Wells Fargo Championship Betting Preview & Odds

After a couple weeks of somewhat diminished fields, the PGA Tour is back with a loaded field at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship. The designated event has a $20 million prize purse and has attracted top players like Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, and Mexico Open winner Tony Finau.

Let’s take a look at the outright PGA odds and smart betting picks for this year’s tournament.


Wells Fargo Championship Betting Odds and Predictions

Tour: PGA Tour
When: May 1–7, 2023
Where: Quail Hollow Club | Charlotte, North Carolina
Par / Length: 70 / 7,160 yards (6,550 m)


The Favorite – Rory McIlroy (+700)

McIlroy hasn’t played since the Masters and drew some criticism for skipping subsequent events, especially after he was so vocal about the PGA Tour increasing prize purses for tournaments to contend with LIV Golf. The rest may help McIlroy, as he was playing quite poorly before missing the cut at the Masters.

The four-time major champion has also enjoyed great success at Quail Hollow. He won here in 2021 for the third time with a one-stroke victory over Abraham Ancer. He won by a record seven strokes in 2015 and won for the first time in 2010. He was also runner-up in 2012 and is second among all players competing this weekend in true shots gained (+2.83) at Quail Hollow, according to

The Smart Pick – Viktor Hovland (+1800)

Hovland has just three career victories and has yet to win in 2022-23, despite seemingly in contention every weekend. He’s a greater starter and is usually leading the field after the first round, but has been unable to play at a high level consistently for four rounds. Foruntately, he has also had success at Quail Hollow.

The 25-year-old Norwegian is the only player with a better true shots gained (+3.26) than McIlroy at the North Carolina course, albeit in only one tournament. Hovland finished T3 in 2021. He’s more than due for a win.

The Longshot Pick – Max Homa (+2800)

While we usually like to highlight a golfer with longer odds, it’s hard to pass on Max Homa this weekend at +2800. He has the 13th-shortest odds, despite being a two-time winner of the Wells Fargo Championship. He’s also the defending champion, although last year’s event was held at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Maryland.

Still, being the defending champion carries some weight, and Homa, like Hovland, is due for another win on the PGA Tour. He had a great start to the season, winning the Farmers Insurance Open and finishing second at the Genesis Open, but was T43 at the Masters and missed the cut for the RBC Heritage.

Homa won the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in 2019 with a three-stoke victory over Joel Dahmen.
