Jordan Spieth is back in the Lone Star State, and oddsmakers have taken notice.

Spieth headlines the field this week at the Charles Schwab Challenge, one week after his bid for the final leg of the career Grand Slam ended with a T-30 finish at Kiawah Island. Spieth has a remarkable record at historic Colonial Country Club, highlighted by a victory here in 2016 and runner-ups in both 2015 and 2017. He already notched a drought-breaking win in his home state earlier this year at the Valero Texas Open, and it's no surprise to see oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook open him as a +1000 betting favorite in Fort Worth.

Close behind him are a pair of major winners, with Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa next on the board at +1200 and +1400, respectively. Thomas finished T-10 in his Colonial debut last year, while Morikawa missed a short putt in a playoff to hand the trophy over to Daniel Berger. The defending champ is slotted among a group of players at +2200, while now six-time major champ Phil Mickelson is listed at +6600 after shocking the PGA Championship field as a triple-digit long shot a week ago on the Ocean Course.

Here's a look at some of the notable odds at Colonial, as players look to successfully navigate the Horrible Horseshoe on one of the more recognizable courses on Tour:
