The PGA Tour is heading west this week, and there’s a familiar name atop the list of favorites for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Patrick Cantlay is not only one of the top players in any field, he’s also a certified assassin when it comes to his annual trip to TPC Summerlin. Cantlay broke through for his first career Tour victory at this event back in 2017, and he has been a leaderboard mainstay ever since: a runner-up in 2018, playoff loss in 2019 and a T-8 finish in 2020. All told he has a 66.63 scoring average across the par-71 track, with seven rounds of 65 or lower.

It’s no surprise, then, to see Cantlay’s name as the clear betting favorite this week as he makes his first start since helping the U.S. to victory at the Presidents Cup. Among his closest pursuers are defending champion Sungjae Im as well as Max Homa, who already has a win on the board this season after successfully defending his Fortintet title last month in Napa. Tom Kim, who burst onto the scene earlier this year with his Wyndham Championship win and became a fan favorite two weeks ago at Quail Hollow, is listed at +2200 along with former Tour winner Aaron Wise.

Here’s a look at some of the notable odds in Sin City, as TPC Summerlin plays host to what’s expected to be a shootout given the winning score has been at least -20 in five of the last six years:
