Expert PGA Betting Picks: Wells Fargo Championship

Look, predicting a pre-tournament winner in golf isn’t easy. While it’s true sports bettors can find fantastic value, it’s incredibly frustrating when one of your picks doesn’t even make the cut. That’s why I’m here to help.

Every week I’ll highlight three golfers who have a good chance to win the hardware for the upcoming weekend. This week it’s the Wells Fargo Championship.

Jon Rahm (+1100)

Since Rahm’s breakthrough at the Farmers Insurance Open in January, he hasn’t finished worse than T-27, which came at the Masters. The Spaniard has a win and five other top-fives over the past 11 months and is clearly establishing himself as an upper-echelon talent on the PGA Tour.

Rahm took three weeks off after the Masters, which means he’ll be refocused and well rested to get back on track. Despite his young age of 22, he’s a threat to win every week so don’t let his inexperience fool you. This guy is the real deal.

Kevin Kisner (+2200)

Kisner is within striking distance of collecting a win right now. He did everything he could to will himself and Scott Brown to a triumph at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans before falling short in a playoff on Monday.

Including last weekend, Kisner has been a contender three times this spring after collecting a runner-up finish at Bay Hill and a T-11 placing at Harbour Town. A South Carolina native, Kisner is very familiar in the Southeast and always plays his best golf here.

Shane Lowry (+6600)

Lowry doesn’t have a top-10 to his name so far this season, but the temporary move of the Wells Fargo Championship to Eagle Point Golf Club translates well to his game. Lowry is one of the few players on the Tour to gain strokes in both the approach and off-the-tee categories over his last 20 rounds, which means he’s likely on the verge of rounding into form after suffering through a slow start.

The Irishman is solid across the board, ranking 20th in total driving, 45th in greens hit, 20th in proximity and 27th in strokes gained from tee to green. At the price, Lowry is one of the best value bets on the board.
