Jon Rahm will be looking to build on his current run of three straight top-ten finishes in stroke play events when he tees off at the Wells Fargo Championship later this week as a +1100 co-favourite on the golf betting lines at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Rahm teamed up with Ryan Palmer to record a seventh-place finish last time out at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans, and has now cracked the top ten in nine of his past 11 PGA Tour appearances going into the first round of the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship on Thursday morning at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In addition to his steady performance two weeks ago, Rahm also claimed a share of fifth place at the Masters a month ago, and finished among the top ten at the PLAYERS Championship and the Genesis Invitational. Rahm's current run of consistency has solidified his position at No. 3 on the World Golf Rankings. However, victory has eluded the 26-year-old so far this season, with his last win coming at last summer's BMW Championship.

Rahm is joined atop the Wells Fargo Championship odds at +1100 at sports betting sites by co-favourite Justin Thomas. Bryson DeChambeau follows the favourites at +1400, ahead of Rory McIlroy, who joins Xander Schauffele at +1800.

Thomas has taken a step back since recording his lone victory so far this season at the PLAYERS Championship. Thomas failed to crack the top twenty in Augusta, and was forced to settle for a share of 13th place this past weekend at the Valspar Championship. Thomas has also finished well out of contention in his past two Wells Fargo appearances, ending up 21st three years ago and missing the cut in 2016.

While he was poised to embark on an epic run following his victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and third-place performance at the PLAYERS Championship, DeChambeau has struggled since then. DeChambeau was a non-factor at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and tumbled to 46th place last time out at the Masters. However, DeChambeau powered to a fourth-place finish in his most recent Wells Fargo Championship appearance three years ago after missing the cut in each of the two previous years.

McIlroy also has plenty of work to do to turn things around after missing the cut at both the PLAYERS and the Masters, while Schauffele aims to build on a steady run that has produced top-five finishes in six of his 11 outings so far this season.

Elsewhere on the Wells Fargo Championship odds for this week, Corey Conners leads all Canadians as a +3300 wager, while defending tournament champion Max Homa sports +4000 odds to claim his second win of the current campaign.
