AT&T Byron Nelson betting tips: Each-way selections
The Slovakian hasn’t missed a cut since the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the start of February and heads to Texas with a top 10 and a top 20 in his last two starts.
Another player to look out for is 22-year-old Scottie Scheffler (60/1), who has finished inside the top 10 in his last four Web.com Tour events.
He currently averages over 310 yards off the tee and just under 70% in driving accuracy, which could prove to be vital on a layout where the wide fairways give a huge advantage to the big hitters.
The Dallas native produced a top 20 at the Valero Texas Open. Can he transfer his form to the PGA Tour once again and perform on home soil?
Length off the tee is something Kevin Tway (80/1) has in abundance.
Like Scheffler, the American will benefit from the wide fairways at Trinity Forest and hopefully take advantage of the large landing areas on offer.
Tway isn’t in tremendous form but is known to be streaky and can find a good finish out of nowhere. He comes into the event in similar form to last year, where he finished in the top 10.
So that’s the each-way contenders sorted. But who does Matthew think is likely to lift the trophy? Turn the page to find out his top AT&T Byron Nelson betting tips…
