Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau head a star-studded field as the PGA Tour returns to Charlotte, N.C. for the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship, teeing off Thursday at Quail Hollow Club. 

Thomas is the 11-1 favorite in the latest 2021 Wells Fargo Championship odds from William Hill Sportsbook, followed by Rahm at 12-1. Among the other contenders in the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship field are DeChambeau (16-1), Rory McIlory (18-1) and Xander Schauffele (20-1). 

Before setting your Fantasy golf lineups or betting the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship, you NEED to see data scientist Rick Gehman's power rankings.

With his expansive database of golf statistics, course data and betting odds, Gehman creates advanced models and back-tests them constantly. These models have produced 12 outright winners in the past 18 months and three this season, including Viktor Hovland at 25-1 at the Mayakoba Golf Classic and Daniel Berger at 20-1 at Pebble Beach! 

At last week's event on Innisbrook's Copperhead Course, 11 of Gehman's 20 players finished tied for 21st or better, with runner-up Keegan Bradley and third-place finishers Cameron Tringale and Viktor Hovland all appearing in the rankings.     

And in the previous week's team event in New Orleans, FIVE of Gehman's top eight finished T-8 or higher, including Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, who lost in a playoff! 

Gehman has been on fire all season! At the Masters, three of Gehman's top eight picks finished in the top five! That included Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele, who tied for third. Three of his top seven at The Players made the top 10, and at Pebble Beach, three of his top four had top-five finishes! Anyone who has followed his advice has cashed in HUGE!

Now, Gehman has ranked his top 30 golfers for the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship. We can tell you he is expecting Thomas to keep proving he is one of the best players in the world! The second-ranked player and FedEx Cup leader won the PGA Championship on this course in 2017, and his Players win in March was one of 11 top-25 in 13 events this season. The 27-year-old is one of the best ball-strikers on tour, and he tied for 13th last week at Innisbrook. Gehman expects nothing but the best from Thomas this week at Quail Hollow!

On the other hand, Gehman is slightly fading Viktor Hovland, who is listed among the contenders at 22-1The Norwegian tied for third last week and is a strong and accurate driver, ranking fourth in strokes gained off the tee. But he also is 104th in strokes gained putting and 62nd on approach, and he has been up-and-down with a T-49 and a missed cut in March. Hovland has the skill to play well at Quail Hollow, but there are better options, and Gehman doesn't rank him in his top 10! 

Instead, the golf analyst is backing a HUGE long-shot who comes in at higher than 50-1 who has played Quail Hollow extremely well! He could be a big surprise at the top of the leaderboard this week, and you ABSOLUTELY need to see who its is -- and what else Gehman is saying -- before you bet the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship or enter any Fantasy golf lineups.
