Golfers With Best Chances to Win

Keegan Bradley has not moved a lot since the odds first opened. He is still sitting at +3500, which means the market does not value his worth. For you, this could be a great betting opportunity to consider for a golfer that is in a weaker field. 


He has four top 10 finishes this year, which looks to be a great shot for an outsider to win. He barely cracks the top 10, but has earned some respect to potentially get it done. 


Tony Finau has dropped slightly in betting odds and you can get him at a better price now. With his second place tie at the Mexico Open recently, it would not hurt to throw some money his way. 


Gary Woodland has slowly crept up into the top 10 rankings after being an outside pick. He has a solid reputation at other events similar to this one, so he can definitely capture a win. 


Woodland did not play his absolute best at the Mexico Open, but showed signs of great play on the final day. His tie 24th place was his sixth top 25 performance this year. If he continues his strong play on that final day to now, he has an excellent opportunity to steal a win. 

Potential Winning Pick for Wells Fargo Championship 

Rory Mcllroy is the player to beat at this tournament. He currently ranks as the best player here, coming in seventh. According to the world golf rankings, his only ranked competitor close to him is Tony Finau at 18th. 


Mcllroy is looking to continue his momentum from the final day at the Masters where he shot a record tying 63. If he is able to show some signs of that play, he wins this by a landslide.
