The Zurich Classic of New Orleans — the PGA Tour’s lone team event — always includes a bevy of interesting tandems that could walk away with a Tour victory.

And according to PointsBet, the favorite to notch the win this year at TPC Louisiana is the team of Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland, both top-5 players in the world. They are the event's highest-ranked pair and the only team with both players inside the top 10 of the world ranking, earning them +800 odds.

The second-best odds in the field belong to the team of Patrick Cantlay — who lost in a playoff last week to Jordan Spieth at the RBC Heritage — and Xander Schauffele at +850.

Five teams to watch at the PGA Tour's lone team event, the Zurich Classic

Defending champions Cam Smith and Marc Leishman, better known as Team Mullett, claim the tournament's third-best odds at +900.

Ryan Palmer, who won the Zurich Classic in 2019 with Jon Rahm, always recruits the game's best to partner up with him. His partners have had an average OWGR position of 4.6, the highest of any player with a minimum of two starts. And this year, he'll play with the newest Masters champion, world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. They are tied with Sam Burns and Billy Horschel for the field's fourth-best odds at +1100.
