Scottie Scheffler is the hottest golfer on the planet and he is the best-backed player to win these week in AT&T Byron Nelson odds.
The Masters champion is the current sportsbook favorite over Justin Thomas, but with the likes of Jordan Spieth, Xander Schauffele, and Brooks Koepka in the field, it will be a tough ask.
It Pays to Follow Scheffler
Scottie Scheffler has rewarded loyal bettors in 2022 and we’re not about to jump off the bandwagon.
The American has been propelled to the world No. 1 ranking following his win at the Masters and it’s tough to find a negative about him.
Scheffler has a lot of fans, including former PGA Tour pro Jay Haas, who likens him to Tiger Woods.
“[He’s on] one of the best runs in recent memory. Tiger-esque,” Haas told Golf.com. “The thing I like about Scottie is that he doesn’t have a cookie-cutter swing. It’s kind of his own. Obviously, he’s got an instructor and he’s worked hard.
“He was very impressive, but you wouldn’t say this kid is going to be No. 1 in the world in 10 minutes. Each time he’s had a chance, he’s closed the deal, which is very impressive. He hasn’t spit the bit at all coming down the stretch.”
Scheffler’s on an incredible tear and it’s no wonder he heads the AT&T Byron Nelson odds.
Thomas Ready for Breakthrough Win
It has been a tough year for backers of Justin Thomas, but he’s always at the forefront of a PGA golf betting preview.
Thomas has been threatening to win after finishing T8 at The Masters, T3 at the Valspar Championship and T5 at the Tournament of Champions.
However, Thomas doesn’t often go this long without posting a win and bettors shouldn’t jump off his back.
He is one of the more outstanding golfers on tour and he just needs a confidence-boosting performance. It could come at the AT&T Byron Nelson and he’s closing in on favoritism.
His AT&T Byron Nelson odds of +1200 have shortened since markets opened, which is a good sign for the 14-time PGA Tour winner.
Even though he hasn’t won for over a year and his majors drought is even longer, Thomas is all class and he goes into our selections.
McNealy in the Mix
Maverick McNealy is a player who could be winning on the PGA Tour over the next couple years and he’s worth following now.
The former Web.com player has been around the top of the leaderboard on a few occasions, and because he’s only a new player on the tour, he has always needed time to mature.
McNealy recorded top-40 finishes at the Valero Texas Open and RBC Heritage, but his best performance came when finishing second in the Fortinet Championship last year.
He has since added a couple of top-10 finishes to his record and we think he’s worth including in selections at the price.
AT&T Byron Nelson odds have McNealy at +4500, so he has firmed from an opening quote of +5000. We expect more plenty of betting support to come his way over the next few months.Follow us on Twitter
