The latest Signature Event goes down this week at the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship, and we’re picking the man who won last week’s PGA Tour event. Here’s our long-shot pick, the Wells Fargo Championship odds, betting favorites and everything else you need to know.

Wells Fargo Championship odds: Long-shot bet

When picking winners in pro golf, it’s always a good idea to go with hot hands. And in terms of long shots for this week’s Wells Fargo, Taylor Pendrith’s fingers are warmer than anyone else’s, and he’s our long-shot pick with +8000 odds to win.

The source of Pendrith’s heat came on Sunday, when he fired a four-under 67 in the final round to win the CJ Cup Byron Nelson by one shot. It was the first PGA Tour victory of his career, and, among other things, it got him into the field at Quail Hollow this week.

But Pendrith’s win wasn’t a fluke — he’s been contending frequently in 2024. He has two other top-10 finishes to go along with two T11 finishes. We’re hoping the Canadian veteran can ride the momentum from last week into a Signature win.

If you bet $10 on Pendrith to go back-to-back and he makes it happen, you’ll earn $800. For insurance, consider placing additional small bets on Pendrith to finish top 10 and top 20.

Looking for more long-shot bets for the Wells Fargo Championship? This week’s honorable mentions are Shane Lowry (+5000) and Denny McCarthy (+5500).

Wells Fargo Championship odds: The favorites

Most of the stars of the PGA Tour are in the field for this week’s Signature Event, except for World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, who is skipping the tournament as he awaits the birth of his first child.

Stepping into Scheffler’s typical role as betting favorite is World No. 2 Rory McIlroy, who comes into the week with +850 odds to win. Xander Schauffele (+1000) starts the week in second place on the odds list, while Ludvig Aberg takes third at +1100.
