A renovated Quail Hollow Club will greet PGA Tour players this week when play begins in the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship beginning on Thursday at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte. After last year's tournament, the club closed for a few months to undergo a renovation. The project included redoing all the tees and greens, installing a new drainage system, and overhauling the bunkers. Quail Hollow is set to host next year's PGA Championship.

This week, three-time champion Rory McIlroy is the favorite in the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship odds at +650. Xander Schauffele is the +900 second choice in the Wells Fargo Championship 2024 field. Defending champion Wyndham Clark (+1600), Patrick Cantlay (+1800) and Max Homa (+2200) round out the top five choices. Before locking in any 2024 Wells Fargo Championship picks, make sure you see the PGA Tour predictions and best bets from golf betting and fantasy expert Sia Nejad, considering the success he had picking the tournament last year.

Nejad specializes in betting and DFS in golf, among other sports. He's had incredible success in the outright and first-round leader markets and in betting head-to-head matchups. He also has been solid with his head-to-head matchups since last year's Charles Schwab Challenge, going 41-27-3 and returning 10.64 units over that span. That's a $1,064 profit for $100 bettors since May 2023.

Nejad also nailed Clark, a 75-1 longshot, as the outright winner at the Wells Fargo Championship. In 2023, SportsLine debuted "The Early Wedge," and in the first three months of the show, he hit two first-round leaders and three outright winners.

Now, Nejad has turned his attention to the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship field and locked in his best bets, top sleepers and favorites to avoid. See who they are at SportsLine.

One surprise: Nejad is completely fading Tommy Fleetwood, even though he is one of the favorites at +2200. The 33-year-old from Southport, England, has eight international wins. Earlier this year, he won the Dubai Invitational on the DP World Tour by one stroke over, among others, McIlroy.

But while Fleetwood has had success internationally, he has yet to win on the PGA Tour in 134 career starts. "[He] has no business being +2200," Nejad told SportsLine. "He has great history at Quail Hollow, but he's shown no ability to close on the PGA Tour over his career and this is not the field for him to finally pull it off."

However, Nejad is high on the chances of Wyndham Clark, who is +1600 in the Wells Fargo Championship odds. Ranked No. 3 in the world, Clark has one win, two seconds and four top-10 finishes in 10 events this season. He hasn't played since finishing third in the RBC Heritage three weeks ago.

Nejad likes that Clark has excelled in all of the strokes gained metrics this year. He ranks second in strokes gained: total (1.780) behind only Scottie Scheffler. "The approach play hasn't been perfect, but he comes back to a place where he has won and he is notably unafraid of the big moments on Sundays," Nejad said.

Nejad has locked in his best bets for the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship and is backing several longshots, including one that is priced at more than +4000. This player "has spiked enough lately" and is a longshot who could surprise. You can see Nejad's PGA Tour picks only at SportsLine.
