2022 Wells Fargo Championship odds, field, best bets, and PGA Tour picks

For some of the game’s biggest names, the Wells Fargo Championship served as a springboard for their careers. Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, and Max Homa — who are all in the field this week — earned their first career wins at this event.

However, the regular venue is not being used this week.

Quail Hollow Country Club, the regular host track, will be staging the Presidents Cup later this year so the game’s best players are headed to TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm this time around.

McIlroy, a three-time winner of the WFC, enters the week as the defending champion and betting favorite at +750. He’s among just three players in this week’s field ranked inside the top 20 in the Official World Golf Ranking — McIlroy, seventh, Tony Finau, 18th, and Abraham Ancer, 20th.

Betting card for the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship

Sepp Straka

Straka, in his last three stroke-play event starts, has finished T-9 (Players), T-30 (Masters), and T-3 (RBC Heritage).

TPC River Highlands, home of the Travelers Championship, is the best course comparison this week and Straka grabbed a top 10 in Connecticut last season.

Bets to consider: Outright (+4000), Top 20 (+250)

Young is still looking for this first win on Tour, however, he’s already finished runner-up twice this season. In his last start, the RBC Heritage, he ended the week tied for third.

Of the players in this field over the last 24 rounds, Young ranks first in SG: Tee to Green, Ball-Striking, and Off the Tee.

Bets to consider: Outright (+3000), Top 20 (+210)

Marc Leishman

A lot of things are pointing to the Aussie having a great week in Maryland.

In two starts at TPC Potomac, Leishman finished T-5 at the 2017 Quicken Loans National and T-13 in 2018. At the 2021 Travelers Championship, he finished solo third, one shot out of a playoff.

Bets to consider: Outright (+3000), Top 20 (+220)
