The PGA Championship is in the rear-view mirror and the attention now shifts to this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club. With several big names in the field, it’s a solid week for golf betting.

Here’s a look at some of the top plays for the week, including golf odds.

Tournament Favorite: Justin Thomas (+1100)

Following his dramatic victory at last week’s PGA Championship, it is no surprise to see Justin Thomas as the odds-on-favorite at +1100. This will be Thomas’s third straight year competing at Colonial, where he finished tied for 40th and tied for 10th in his two prior showings.

If there is a reason for pause, it is the possibility of a letdown performance given the whirlwind nature of his major triumph.

Notables: Scottie Scheffler (+1200), Collin Morikawa (+1800)

Highest Ticket%: Jordan Spieth (8.3%)

Holding the highest ticket percentage is three-time major champion Jordan Spieth (8.3%). Spieth had a disappointing showing last week in the year’s second major, finishing tied for 34th at 4-over par.

However, he had been playing very well prior, winning the RBC Heritage, and finishing runner-up at the AT&T Byron Nelson in his previous two starts. Now, Spieth tackles Colonial, where he has had tremendous success throughout his career. The 28-year-old won the event in 2016 and has posted two second-place finishes, including one at last year’s tournament.

Notables: Collin Morikawa (6.7%), Viktor Hovland (6.0%)

Highest Ticket%: Collin Morikawa (15.6%)

Despite missing the cut at Southern Hills, bettors are expecting a bounce-back performance from Collin Morikawa, as the 25-year-old owns the highest handle percentage (15.6%). Surprisingly, Morikawa has not won on American soil in over a year.

He does have two runner-up finishes this season, however, and could very well break through this week at Colonial, where he lost in a playoff in 2020.

Notables: Jordan Spieth (12.8%), Viktor Hovland (10.4%)
