The AT&T Byron Nelson takes place this week and will feature a wide open field. Only one player in this week’s event comes with odds under +1000.
So, here are some of the golfers you should consider throwing on this week’s card.
USA TODAY Sports
Rory Sabbatini - Let’s start off with a massive underdog in Rory Sabbatini, who you can get with odds of +5000. Sabbatini is an underdog for good reason, as he’s missed the cut eight times in 17 events, including five of his last seven outings and he hasn’t won a PGA event since 2011. However, Sabbatini won the AT&T Byron Nelson back in 2009 and actually holds the course record with a -19 to par. Given that nugget and the fact Sabbatini does have four top 10 finishes in his nine times he’s made the cut, he’s certainly worthy of throwing a little coin on. Sabbatini has shown he’s capable of playing with anybody when he’s feeling it.
Jason Day - Jason Day is the third favorite you can currently get with odds of +1200, which I’ll take every day of the week and twice on Sundays. Day picked up his first PGA tour title back in 2010 with a victory on this course, and he had top 10 finishes in 2011 and 2012. Needless to say, Day loves playing at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas. Day is also playing great golf this year, which includes four top 10 finishes in 10 events played. Day is also fourth in driving distance and first in birdie average. With Day’s past history on this course, you can expect your money to go a long way with these somewhat shocking odds.
Marc Leishman - We’re getting Marc Leishman with odds of +2800 to win this week. Huh? Yes, I know Leishman has just three top 25 finishes in 13 events played this season and he has just one PGA tour victory which came in 2012. However, Leishman has great success at the AT&T Byron Nelson, which includes four top 15 finishes in six appearances, and that includes third place finishes in both 2012 and 2014. That’s music to my ears given these massive odds. Leishman hasn’t done anything special this season, but he’s always a threat on this course.
Justin Thomas - Justin Thomas has finished in the top 25 in his last four events, which includes a tie for seventh at the Wells Fargo Championship. Thomas has never played this course, but you certainly have to be impressed with his play as of late and think he’s worth a look with odds of +2500. Thomas is fourth in all-around ranking and ninth in birdie average. With the way Thomas is playing right now, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he picked up his second professional win at the young age of 22 years old.
Jordan Spieth - Jordan Spieth is head and shoulders the best player in this field, and you can get him with odds of +400. He’s also playing in his hometown. You can do a lot worse with your money this weekend.
