Harris English is currently the best-backed player to win the Charles Schwab Challenge, despite being 27th-favorite with the oddsmakers.

English’s current odds of +7000 – on which a winning $10 wager would net a profit of $700 – suggest an implied probability of just 1.41%.

However, bettors seem to think that those odds provide excellent value and have responded accordingly; 7% of all the bets placed on the ‘winner’ market have gone in favor of Harris, ahead of the favorite Rory McIlroy (5.64%) and outsider Jordan Spieth (5.64%).

Oddschecker spokesperson Pete Watt: “It is no surprise to see the likes of Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and John Rahm receiving significant attention from bettors – but Harris English will raise some eyebrows.

Though certainly a talented player, English has never finished higher than 15th at a major and hasn’t won a PGA Tour event since 2013. Despite this, punters have made their thoughts clear and if that activity continues, then we can expect to see those odds begin to shorten.”

Current favorites:

Golfer Odds
Rory McIlroy +800
John Rahm +1200
Justin Thomas +1600
Bryson DeChambeau +2500
Webb Simpson +2500
Brooks Koepka +2800
Dustin Johnson +2800
Patrick Reed +2800
Sungjae Im +3300
Xander Schauffele +3500
