First-round leader odds for AT&T Byron Nelson

We break down the odds to lead after the first round at TPC Craig Ranch this weekend.

The Byron Nelson is the limbo of the Texas PGA Tour tournaments; you’re only winning if you get really, really low.

Last year K.H. Lee fired a Golden Tee-like -25 over 72 holes to win by three shots. This is a week you’ll want to attack those that can attack flags, because it’s likely 63 or better is going to be needed on the Par 72 layout to take home the first round leader bet.

The pick: Justin Thomas +2200

We agree, chalk is no fun. But if you want value on a guy that would probably be a good bet to post at least one 59 this week at 100-1, it’s JT. A week ahead of the only major he’s won (the 2017 PGA Championship), Thomas is third on tour in stroke differential at +1.91, and second in birdie average with exactly five per round.

While he’s yet to win this year, he’s got seven Top 10’s in 12 starts. And plenty of those come with extremely low rounds he just can’t back up for four days. But you don’t need four days, you need Thursday.
