Charles Schwab Invitational odds 2022: Jordan Spieth (obviously) among the favorites at one of his favorite tour stops

Entering the PGA Championship at Southern Hills, Jordan Spieth had won (RBC Heritage) and finished runner-up (AT&T Byron Nelson) in his previous two starts, making him an extremely popular pick to win. Judging by his history of ripping off multiple wins in a short stretch of time, majors included, he was destined to complete the career grand slam in Tulsa.

But a first-round 72 and a third-round 74 proved to be too much to overcome for the three-time major winner. Even with some solid approach, tee-to-green and off-the-tee numbers, Spieth finished in a distant T-34th, his putter failing him as it seemingly has so many times this season (Spieth ranked 74th in the field in SG/putting for the week).

Despite the mini hiccup, Spieth is still commanding plenty of respect from the oddsmakers this week, likely because of his excellent course history at Colonial. Spieth finished second in the Charles Schwab Challenge a year ago, and he won the event in 2016 and finished runner-up the following year. He's clearly a fan of the layout, which, like Southern Hills, was originally designed by Perry Maxwell.

As a result, he's among the top three favorites, anywhere between 12- and 14-1. The only names ahead of him are World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler at 10-1, and now two-time PGA champion Justin Thomas (12-1), who might very well withdraw before Thursday (and no one would blame him).

Collin Morikawa, Viktor Hovland and PGA runner-up Will Zalatoris check in next on the odds board. Other names of intrigue include Webb Simpson at 40-1 off his T-20 at Southern Hills, as well as Chris Kirk (60-1), who picked up the most recent of his four career PGA Tour victories at Colonial in 2015 and just tied for fifth at the PGA.

Below are the consensus odds for every player in the field at the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge:
