2020 Charles Schwab Challenge: Odds to Win and Expert Picks

Kevin Na surveys the 13th green with his caddie at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas.

We’re at the final round of The Charles Schwab Challenge on the PGA Tour and a strong Saturday has propelled Xander Schauffele to the top the leaderboard AND the oddsboard as the betting favorite to win the tournament.

Schauffele, who opened at +2800 to win the tourney at the best golf betting sites, now sits at +350 following a strong day-three performance where he shot a 66. At -13, he only has a one-shot lead over the likes of Justin Thomas (+500) and Jordan Spieth (+550) while the pre-tourney favorite, Rory McIlroy, is listed at +1200 and sits three strokes back at -10.

It’s not uncommon for bettors to wager on golf tournaments in the final rounds after seeing how the field narrows. If you haven’t made a golf bet before or just remembered this is the first golf tourney in nearly three months and need to get up to speed, check out our how to bet golf guide.

For now, here are the top 20 golfers on the oddsboard to win the Charles Schwab Challenge going into Round 4:

Schauffele Trying To Hold On

Xander Schauffele wasn't as touted to win the Charles Schwab Challenge as some of his contemporaries, considering his odds opened at +2800, but he's been one of the most consistent golfers on the course. Schauffele shot a 65 in Round 1, and a 66 in both Round 2 and 3 and is in the driver seat to win the fifth PGA tournament of his young career.

But Schauffele's razor-thin lead will be put to the test by the likes of Justin Thomas (-12, +500) and Jordan Spieth (-12, +550), who each only trail by one stroke. Then there's Patrick Reed (-10, +2200), who may not be the most personable guy on the course but had an excellent Saturday with a 63 to vault himself into the conversation.

Rory McIlroy had the best second-round score of the tournament with a 63 but struggled on Day 3 when he shot a 69 to fall to the middle of the pack of the leaderboard. Rory sits at -10 with +1200 odds to finish strong on Sunday and win the tourney but will need a lot of talented golfers ahead of him to falter which makes his odds not that enticing.

Background On Charles Schwab Challenge

Coming off a three-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PGA Tour landed at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas to host the Charles Schwab Challenge.

The tourney has a loaded field, with the top five golfers in the world rankings and 17 of the current top 20 players in the FedExCup standings taking part.

The tournament serves as the official restart of the PGA campaign, as the tour’s plan to resume play includes the first four events closed to the general public.

After the Charles Schwab Challenge concludes, the RBC Heritage (June 15-21), Travelers Championship (June 22-28) and Rocket Mortgage Classic (July 2-5) will follow.

The new adjusted season-long PGA Tour schedule has cancelled the British Open and includes new dates for the PGA Championship and U.S. Open and an unprecedented fall date for the Masters.


Charles Schwab Challenge Picks

Prior to the tourney starting on Thursday, our PGA Golf expert gave his best bets for the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge. Here's what he had to say about Colin Morikawa, who sits at -12 through three rounds:

Collin Morikawa +4000

Morikawa has been solid in 2019-20, going a perfect 11-for-11 on cuts made along with three top-10s. His last start saw him take ninth place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and makes a great candidate to get off to a good start in Texas.

It’s anyone’s guess how the extended layoff is going to impact these golfers, but I expect another strong showing from Morikawa and offers great value at 40-1.
