PGA: Scheffler Tops Charles Schwab Challenge Odds

Colonial Country Club hosts the PGA Tour event

The world’s best golfers return a week after the PGA Championship and bookmakers have the Charles Schwab Challenge Odds. Betting odds are available for the likes of Scottie Scheffler, Will Zalatoris, and PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas, so it’s a red-hot field at Colonial Country Club this week.

Bounce Back for Scheffler

It was a rare missed cut for Scottie Scheffler at the PGA Championship, but he could bounce back in the Charles Schwab Challenge.

We’ve noticed a shift in body language as Scottie Scheffler’s expectations have risen, which he will need to work on.

He’s becoming increasingly frustrated, which was the main reason he missed the cut last week. The Texan was never one to be fazed by anything, but being the best player in the world comes with new responsibilities, so it’s something he needs to fix as soon as possible.

“It’s very frustrating,” Scheffler said after missing the cut. “I, too, am disappointed. It’s never fun to miss cuts, and I was hoping to play this weekend. I tried my hardest to get things done, but I just didn’t have it this week.”

Despite his terrible performance at Southern Hills, Scheffler is currently the +1100 favorite in golf betting markets.

Charles Schwab Challenge odds are generous for Scheffler, who has already won four times this season and he could add another trophy to his growing cabinet.

Zalatoris Eyes Maiden Win

Will Zalatoris has finished second in three PGA Tours or major championships, but that shouldn’t be a deterrent for bettors.

He is one of the top PGA betting tips for the Charles Schwab Challenge and rightfully so, following his second-place finish at the PGA Championship.

The 25-year-old has already finished in the top 10 of five major championships, including second at The Masters, so he’s on the verge of a huge victory, and he was gracious in defeat after losing in a playoff.

His positive attitude will see him win many tournaments and we think the floodgates could open once he wins. Much like Scheffler when he scored his maiden win, Zalatoris could make a significant rise up the world golf rankings.

He held his nerve well in the playoff, shooting -1 for the three-hole aggregate, but it wasn’t enough to match Thomas.

“Hey, I’ll play those holes at one under any day of the week and J.T. happened to play in two,” Zalatoris told Golf Digest. “I hit a great putt on 17. We just under read it. Like I said, hats off to JT. He’s been due for a while to get another win, let alone a major. So, excited for him.”

He is +2000 to win with Charles Schwab Challenge odds and it’s worth locking in.

Don’t Write off Pereira

It might have been an all-time choke on the final hole at Southern Hills, but Chile’s Mito Pereira has mental strength.

Throwing away a major champion, and with it, a $2.6 million paycheck, is tough to stomach, but he’s back on the horse and ready to fire.

We loved what we saw from Pereira in the aftermath, so we’re prepared to stick with him at the generous odds of +5000.

Nerves played a bit part of it but he shouldn’t be nervous teeing it up at Colonial. He was putting on excellent swings until the last hole, so his game is in good order.

“I thought I was nervous the first day,” Pereira said. “Then I thought I was nervous the second day. Then I thought I was nervous on the third day, but the fourth day was terrible. I mean, this morning was tough.”

We wouldn’t leave Pereira off betting tickets for the Charles Schwab Challenge.
