The Byron Nelson Classic is underway in their opening round from TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas.
In the field this week are a number of notable players to pay attention to that have been set as the favorites by oddsmakers.
Included in that field is last week’s winner at the Players Championship in Matt Kuchar. Kuchar bested the field at TPC Sawgrass for the biggest win of his career. And now, he will look to follow that win up with a win here at the Byron Nelson.
Prior to the start of the tournament, Kuchar was one of the top favorites to win this week.
But for this purpose, we are going to take a look at the afternoon wave of 3-ball betting odds for the Byron Nelson, with the morning wave already in the course. That includes names like Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Ernie Els.
They are already on the course, but there are many players still yet to tee off, beginning at 1:30 pm ET today in the afternoon groupings.
Kuchar is among those, going off at 1:30 pm ET alongside Padraig Harrington and Vijay Singh. The 3-ball pairings install odds for each player in the group and their chance to shoot the lowest number in the pairing for the day.
Kuchar is the favorite here, going off at even money on the amount wagered for shoot the lowest score. Harrington is sandwiched in the odds at +225, with Singh bringing up the rear with odds at +240.
This will likely be the marquee pairing in the afternoon wave.
Other groupings to note on Thursday afternoon include the defending champion this week at the Byron Nelson Classic Keegan Bradley. The win here last year was Bradley’s first, and as well all know he then went on to win the 2011 PGA Championship later that year. Bradley is paired with Jason Day and Rory Sabbatini. It’s Day who is a +135 favorite to shoot the lower score though, with Bradley just behind at +145. Sabbatini is well back at +270.
