The 2023 Wells Fargo Championship tees off this week from Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. The elevated event will run from Thursday, May 4 to Sunday, May 7 and will feature a field comprised of many of the world’s top-ranked golfers.

Here are our top picks to win it all. All odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Max Homa +250

Homa has won this tournament twice in the past four years — once at Quail Hollow in 2019, and once in 2022 at TPC Potomac. Homa has posted six top-15 finishes in 2023, including a win at the Farmers Open. He has struggled in his recent appearances, missing two cuts in a row, but returns to a comfortable course here. He ranks eighth in the field in SG: Putting and sixth in SG: Approach over the last six months, coming in at 15th in total strokes gained.

While the past three months have not looked quite as impressive, this should be a good opportunity to Homa to get back into the swing of things and get another win under his belt.

Viktor Hovland +2000

Hovland has notched six top-20 finishes in 2023, including a T3 finish at THE PLAYERS and a T7 finish at The Masters. This tells me that he is comfortable in high-stakes situations playing against the best of his peers. He is due for an elevated event win, and he ranks seventh in the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green over the last three months, which the Quail Hollow course will favor.

Jason Day +2500

Day is the sneaky favorite here, and absolutely can take this win. For one, he’s won here before in 2018. He has notched top-10 finishes in five of his last seven starts, and he ranks seventh in SG: Total over the past sixth months and third in the last three months. His putting has been remarkable, and he ranks fourth in the Wells Fargo field for SG: Putting.

He’s been right on the cusp of a win all season at these elevated events, and with a previous win at Quail Hollow, it seems like a lot of people are prepared to back the 35-year-old this week.
