Jon Rahm will be looking to bounce back from his worst performance of the 2021 season when he tees off at the AT&T Byron Nelson this week as a +850 co-favourite on the betting lines at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
Rahm is on the rebound after missing the cut for the first time this year at last weekend’s Wells Fargo Championship. The 26-year-old Spaniard has been otherwise steady this season, cracking the top ten in eight of 13 stroke-play tournament appearances heading into first-round action on Thursday morning at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas.
Firmly entrenched at No. 3 in the World Golf Rankings, Rahm has been a model of consistency in recent years. His shaky performance last weekend marked the first time he had missed the cut at a PGA Tour event in 11 months, and just the fourth time he has made an early tournament exit since August 2018. Despite Rahm’s steady play, though, victory has eluded him since his win at last summer’s BMW Championship, with his second-place finish at last fall’s ZOZO Championship marking his strongest performance since.
While Rahm tries to get back on track, Bryson DeChambeau aims to build on last weekend’s strong finish as he travels to Texas also set as a +850 wager at online betting sites on the AT&T Byron Nelson odds.
DeChambeau took a step back after earning a victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and claiming a share of third place at the PLAYERS Championship, finishing well out of contention at both the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and the Masters. However, he turned things around with solid outings in his final two rounds to finish tied for ninth at the Wells Fargo Championship. The 27-year-old, though, has work to do to reverse a dismal track record at this event after missing the cut in his two previous appearances.
Elsewhere on the AT&T Byron Nelson odds for this week, Jordan Spieth returns to action for the first time since posting a third-place finish at the Masters as a +1000 wager. Daniel Berger vies for his second win of the season sporting +1600 odds, and he is followed by Brooks Koepka at +1800, while this year’s Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama joins Matthew Fitzpatrick at +2000. Michael Gligic sits as the top Canadian this weekend at +30000 odds.
Spieth has been flashing the form that powered him to three major tournament wins earlier in his career. As well, this weekend’s event represents a homecoming for the Dallas native, who will be aiming to build on a steady run of five top-four finishes over his past seven stroke-play tournament appearances.
