The golfer with 60-1 odds you need to bet at 2021 Wells Fargo Championship (and others to watch)

May 04, 2021 03:43 PM

One week after the guys gave out Sam Burns as a sleeper to watch at the Valspar (Burns won the event at 90-1 odds), Rotowire's Jeff Erickson and Scott Jenstad join Morning Read's Jeff Ritter to break down this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Quail Hallow is a big track that typically rewards solid ballstriking and a strong tee-to-green game. It's also one of Rory McIlroy's favorite courses, but none of the guys are betting McIlroy this week, as the former No. 1 continues to search for his old form.

One player everyone likes: Jon Rahm, whose recent run of top-10 finishes is hard to ignore. Jenstad also likes Viktor Hovland, while Ritter eyes Webb Simpson and Masters Cinderella Will Zalatoris.

One sleeper both Jenstad and Ritter are aggressively targeting: Shane Lowry at 60-1 odds to win. Lowry has quietly enjoyed a productive season, and he has a history of playing well at big events. Look out this week.
