Guide To 2017 Byron Nelson Odds, Preview & Betting Tips
Last weekend at The Players Championship we saw the strongest entry since the Masters was played out at Augusta last month and a big field gave us a surprise winner, writes Matt. The 21-year-old Si-Woo Kim may still be an unfamiliar name but the South Korean now has two PGA Tour wins and will certainly be taken more seriously moving forward.
This week it is the AT&T Byron Nelson and while the biggest names in golf were relatively subdued last time out, the betting odds have a familiar look.
Dustin Johnson finished just outside of the top ten at Sawgrass and there was enough to suggest that the World Number One will soon be winning again following his return from injury. Certainly the top rated bookies seem to think so as they have installed Johnson as the clear favourite at 5/1, that is the best current price with Paddy Power.
Following on is Jordan Spieth who missed the cut at the TPC and will not necessarily be backed with any real confidence at an industry best of 12/1 with Ladbrokes. Of the two men, Johnson has four top tens in his last seven appearances here while Spieth faded badly last year after starting in the final pairing. The favourite is the better option but can we find some value picks elsewhere?
Leading the chasing pack at 14/1 with Coral is defending champion Sergio Garcia who claimed his second Byron Nelson title twelve months ago in a playoff. The Spaniard was in contention in stages last weekend following his Masters victory and looks in prime form coming into this week.
Brooks Koepka is next on the AT&T Byron Nelson odds list at a best price of 18/1 with Bet365, while Jason Day is close behind at a top price of 20/1 with Stan James. Koepka lost out in that play off to Garcia twelve months ago and has five straight top 20s coming into this and is therefore our first tip for the Top Ten markets at 15/8 with Paddy Power.
As for Day, I just feel that the former number one is being priced on reputation rather than form and will keep my money safe until he starts to threaten again.
Beyond the top five in the Byron Nelson betting there is a considerable gap to Louis Oosthuizen who was in contention over much of the four days last week. Form is a good indicator as any and the South African looks tempting at an excellent industry best of 35/1 with Betfred.
Form isn’t necessarily in Patrick Reed’s favour and he has endured a wretched few months but there were signs at Wells Fargo and at the The Players Championship that a comeback is close. At that same price of 35/1 with Bet365, Reed is tempting but is safer in the Top Tens at 11/4 with Ladbrokes.
Even more tempting in that same market is Keegan Bradley at a best of 9/1 with Paddy Power. Winner here in 2011 and a runner up two years later, he has shown no great form since but that’s a great price for someone who’s finished in the top two on two separate occasions.
The Four Seasons Club in Dallas is a relatively short par 70 at a fraction over 7,000 yards but despite that, recent winners suggest that driving distance can be key. Accuracy has not been so essential but putting certainly is so we are looking for a combination of driving length and form with the flatstick.
Multiple winners are very rare and Garcia’s second triumph in 2016 was the first time that any golfer had claimed the Byron Nelson on more than one occasion since Bruce Lietzke completed a double in 1989.
Those indicators bring this preview back to some of the names already on this list plus a few more: Garcia, despite the negative stat on multiple winners, looks really strong here, and if pushed for a betting tip, I would take the Spaniard over the two favourites, particularly Jordan Spieth who has no form at all coming into this week.
Other betting tips would be Kevin Tway, who has three top five finishes in his last three starts and certainly has the distance hitting to be a contender over the four days. This preview recommends Tway at 4/1 in the top tens as a strong option, as well as Reed at 11/4, Bradley at 9/1 and Koepka at 15/8 (all four best odds with Paddy Power). Plus I like the look of D.A. Points at an excellent 12/1 for a top ten finish with Stan James.
