Wells Fargo Golf Championship 2018

It is from May the 3rd right through until May the 6th 2018 that the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournament will be in live play, and this year sees a huge number of golfers taking part in that tournament.

What makes this a very interesting tournament from a betting point of view is that with so many golfers taking part in it any of them could find their form and be crowned the champion, and with so many golfers lining up to take their chances the odds on each of them are very generous.

If you have been thinking of betting on the Wells Fargo Golf tournament, then there are plenty of betting opportunities, and below I will enlighten you on some of the most popular bets and wagers you can place, and the golfers most likely to win too.

It is on the Quail Hollow Golf Course this PGA Tour tournament is being played and in total the prize money on offer is huge at some $7,700,000.

You can bet on any of the golfers to win or you can of course place an each-way bet on any golfer finishing in one of the top six positions, and most betting sites are going one fifth the odds on the place part of such a bet.

The golfers who do head the current betting markets include the favourite to win that being Rory McIlroy at odds of 8/1, Justin Thomas at 9/1 and Rickie Fowler who is currently the third favourite and whose odds are generally available at 12/1.

First Round Leader Betting

If you are much more interested in placing several different types of bets and wagers on this major and hugely popular golf tournament, then one betting markets that will see you having an interest right from the start so by betting on the first-round leader betting market.

That type of bet is in no way confusing to place, for you simply need to name the golfer from all of them taking part in this golf tournament that you will hope will be the first-round leader, and if you name the one that is then your bet will be a winning one of course!

What does make betting on the first-round leader a very appealing type of bet for all golf bettors is that the odds on offer on all golfers are way higher than their respective outright winner odds, so you should get plenty of value when using that betting market.

The golfers most likely to be leading at the end of the first round and their respective odds are 1st Round Leader Rory McIlroy at 18/1, Justin Thomas at 20/1, Rickie Fowler at 22/1 and you will also find that both Hideki Matsuyama and Jason Day are on offer at odds of 28/1

Top 5 Finishers

It is of course up to you just which golfer you do wish to place a bet on, and as you will find out the odds at this early stage of the betting will be worth taking on any chosen golfer, but those odds are of course going to start to change once the tournament starts and the results begin to come in.

There is another type of bet you can place on this golf tournament that is a much lower risk type of bet, and that is one on which you simply must name one of the golfers and then see him ending up in one of the top five positions on the leader board at the end of the tournament.

As that may be the type of bet that interests you the most then allow me to now give you some ideas of the available odds that is available on the top five finishers betting markets.

It will not surprise you to learn that Rory McIlroy is on offer at odds of 15/8 to finish in the top five positions of this golf tournament, but those odds do look generous and may just tempt you to place this type of bet.

Some other golfers that may just sneak into one of the top five positions and their respective current odds of doing so include Justin Thomas at 21/10, Rickie Fowler at 12/5 and you will get 16/5 about both Patrick Reed and Paul Casey, one other golfer in with a great chance of finishing in the top five positions is Jason Day whose odds are 17/5 to do just that!
