Wells Fargo Championship 2024 Golf Betting Preview, Odds And PGA Picks

The Wells Fargo Championship will feature a limited field of 69 players, but not world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, whose wife is expecting the birth of their first child very soon. Odds and top finishing position betting options and props are provided, and the tournament is one of five Signature Events without a cut. So the golfers will play all four rounds shooting for a top prize of $3.6 million from a $20 million prize pool.

No. 6 in the world Swedish sensation Ludvig Aberg (knee soreness) withdrew Monday. World No. 2 Rory McIlroy is the tournament favorite seeking his fourth Wells Fargo Championship title, and second at Quail Hollow.

The 7,558 yard Par 71 Quail Hollow Club hosts the tournament for the fifth time since 2016, and it was also the host course for the 2022 Presidents Cup. Wyndham Clark (-19) won here in 2023 by four shots over Xander Schauffele. Rory McIlroy (-10) won at Quail Hollow in 2021 and is a three-time winner of the event along with a runner-up here in 2012 in a playoff to winner Rickie Fowler. Max Homa (-15) won by three shots in 2019 for his first PGA Tour win, and Jason Day (-12) captured the 2018 event. Justin Thomas won the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

The greens at Quail Hollow were resurfaced with Tif Eagle Bermudagrass last summer, and 12 greens including holes 15-18 feature softened slopes to better showcase hole locations at higher green speeds.

Weather update: Players will be grouped in threesomes for the first two rounds because of expected thunderstorms Thursday afternoon with 50% chance of rain and winds up to 20 mph. Mostly sunny and mid 70’s with light winds in Charlotte on Saturday and Sunday.

Stats, golf betting and DFS from RotoBaller

Xander Schauffele leads the field this week in total strokes gained and ranks inside the top five in every strokes gained category. Schauffele tops the Tour in 3-putt avoidance (< 25 feet) and is top 10 in Par 5 Birdie or Better rate (58%). Xander has seven top-10s and four top-5s in 11 starts this season. He fired a 64 in the third round last year, and better odds (+1800) are available for Schauffele to be the Round 1 leader

RotoBaller notes than only 24.5% of approach shots last year at Quail Hollow came from inside of 150 yards — nearly 15 percentage points lower than the Tour Average, and by contrast, over 55% of approach shots last year came from 175 yards and out.
