Golf: The Byron Nelson Classic
free bets bet 365

The PGA Tour moves swiftly along to Texas for the Byron Nelson Championship after a great finish – for those who followed our $91 each way tip of Martin Kaymer anyway – to the Players Championship in near darkness yesterday. 

Jordan Spieth will once again try to metaphorically drag his young bones off the ground after final round heartbreak in a big tournament and he should find plenty of inspiration from the crowd this week in what is basically a home tournament for him. He finished tied 16th here in 2010 as a 16 yr old schoolboy with what seemed like the rest of his school cheering him on from outside the ropes.

Topping the ratings, and our first bet this week, is Keegan Bradley. He missed the cut – just – at the Players Championship last week but he’s been in excellent form otherwise with an 8th place at the Zurich Classic in his most recent start and a 2nd place three weeks before that.

Bradley shot 60 in the first round here last year and led until well into the final round when a flurry of birdies mid-round by Sang Moon Bae saw him finish 2nd. He’s ranked 33rd in three putt avoidance which should help with the large, undulating greens.

Jason Day and Adam Scott are both previous winners here – Aussies tend to play well in the wind, and their games seem suited to most courses in Texas – and our next pick is ex PGA Tour rookie of the year, Marc Leishman. 

He shot a closing round of 67 at the Players and has a tied 2nd and a 5th place finish already this season but it’s his course form which stands out. It reads 12 – 3 – mc – 12 – 8.

I was hoping for $51 but at current odds i still want to be on each way.

The next player on our bet list is a previous winner here, in 2009, Rory Sabbatini. He also finished 3rd in 2007 so has a clear liking for the course despite missing the cut twice in the last 4 years. Sabbatini finished 8th two weeks ago in the Wells Fargo Championship, a good pointer for this week as the large greens the players will have to deal with this week are also prevalent there, and a tied 9th two weeks before in the RBC Heritage. With a tied 3rd and a tied 6th also to his name this season he’s shown enough form to be in the mix this week.

Sabbatini is $61 each way with Screenshot 2014-05-03 13.10.10

Freddie Jacobson finished 17th here last year and has a 27th and a 7th place finish to go along with 2 missed cuts here. He’s struggled to put four good rounds together recently but a 69 and a 66 at the Zurich Classic and two rounds of 70 at the Players Championship shows he’s not too far away and his odds dictate a bet here.
