2024 Wells Fargo Championship odds, field: Surprising PGA picks, predictions by model that's called 11 majors (2024)

The second major of the year is just around the corner, but first is a stop at the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship beginning on Thursday at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte. While a pre-major field is often watered down to some extent, the Wells Fargo Championship 2024 features an impressive entry list headlined by Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Max Homa, Xander Schauffele and Justin Thomas. Wyndham Clark is the defending champion, while Adam Scott is an intriguing name to watch after he secured a T-5 finish at this event in 2023.

Play gets underway from Quail Hollow on Thursday at 11 a.m. ET. McIlroy is the 13-2 favorite in the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship odds, followed by Schauffele (9-1), Clark (14-1) and Patrick Cantlay (16-1). Scott is a huge longshot at 45-1 on the PGA odds board. Before locking in your 2024 Wells Fargo Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine's proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up more than $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure's model correctly predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2024 Masters, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Players Championship, and the RBC Heritage this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned nearly $1,000.

The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm's second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022.

In addition, McClure's best bets included Nick Taylor (70-1) winning the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic.

This same model has also nailed a whopping 11 majors entering the weekend and hit the Masters three straight years. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the Wells Fargo Championship 2024 field is finalized, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2024 Wells Fargo Championship predictions

One major surprise the model is calling for at the Wells Fargo Championship 2024: Clark, the defending champion and one of the top favorites, stumbles this week and barely cracks the top 10. Clark has been playing extremely well in 2024, securing one win and two runner-up finishes.

However, Clark has finished T-31 or worse in two of his last three starts on the PGA Tour, which includes a missed cut at the Masters. He's also struggled with accuracy off the tee this season. The 30-year-old enters this week's event ranked 111th in driving accuracy (60.10%). Quail Hollow puts a premium on positioning off the tee, which doesn't bode well for Clark's chances to repeat as champion.

Another surprise: Sahith Theegala, a 25-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.

Theegala certainly has the game to finish near the top of the leaderboard this week. The 26-year-old has played well this season, securing five top-10 finishes in 12 events. He recorded a runner-up finish at the RBC Heritage in April and he enters this week's event ranked fourth in strokes gained: total (1.528), eighth in strokes gained: putting (0.710) and 11th in scoring average (69.39). If he's striking the ball well this week, he'll have a great shot at finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship.See who else to pick here.
