Justin Thomas has won exactly 50 percent of the all-time editions of the CJ Cup, and he's an early co-favorite to add to his trophy collection at this week's relocated event.

Thomas won the inaugural edition in South Korea back in 2017, then returned to Nine Bridges in 2019 to lift the hardware again. The pandemic forced the event to relocate last year to Shadow Creek, where Jason Kokrak won, and now it will stay in the Las Vegas area for the second straight year as The Summit Club makes its debut as host.

Thomas is one of several players in the 78-man field who will be making his first tournament start since the Ryder Cup. Joining him atop the odds board according to PointsBet Sportsbook is his former teammate at Whistling Straits, Dustin Johnson. The two former world No. 1s are both listed at +1100 to win this week, followed closely by Xander Schauffele (+1200) and Summit Club member (and course record holder) Collin Morikawa at +1600.

Here's a look at some of the other notable odds for this week's no-cut event, which will conclude the PGA Tour's two-week stop in Sin City after Sungjae Im captured the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday:
