If you thought the red-hot run by Scottie Scheffler was over, you'd be mistaken.

He hadn't been in contention since winning the Masters last month, but that changed this week at the final event of the year in his home state of Texas, the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Heading into the final round of the tournament, Scheffler has a two-stroke lead at 11-under par. Brendon Todd and Scott Stallings are tied for second place at 9-under par.

Can anyone catch the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world on Sunday? Let's take a look at the live odds via WynnBET ahead of the final round, as well as a few names who can potentially make a Sunday charge.

Live Bets to Win the Charles Schwab Challenge

Brendon Todd +700

If you're thinking of betting on one of the two golfers who are sitting two-strokes back from Scheffler, I'd recommend going with Todd. His odds are slightly shorter for a reason. He already has multiple wins on the Tour, and not only is he more experienced, but he's overall more skilled than Stalling.

Todd has also been the best putter in the field this week, gaining an average of 1.67 strokes on the field per round. If his putter stays hot, and he can dial in his irons, he can give Scottie a run for his money today.

Harold Varner III +1000

Harold Varner III is still seeking his first PGA Tour victory, and today could be the day that he gets it done. He's been solid across the board so far this tournament, while being dominant around the greens, gaining 1.16 strokes per round with his chipping.

Whoever catches Scheffler today is going to need to score in bunches, and that's exactly what Varner is capable of. He ranks 11th on Tour in birdie average, averaging 4.35 per round. If he can score, while avoiding costly bogeys, he has a great chance to beat the No. 1 golfer in the world.

Chris Kirk +2200

Scheffler isn't going to go out and collapse like some golfers might in this spot, so I think the last group of golfers that have a realistic shot of catching him are sitting at 7-under par, or four strokes back. My favorite of that group is Chirs Kirk at +2200.

Kirk has been gaining over a stroke with both his putter and his approach game this tournament, so he has the tools to get it done. He ranks 34th in Tour in scoring average, and he's one of the best ball strikers in the game. As long as his putter can stay hot, he might be able to make a Sunday charge.
