The PGA Tour returns to Texas and to a traditional tournament format with this week’s 2024 CJ Cup Byron Nelson, and we’re picking a long shot who nearly took home the title last year. Here’s our long-shot pick, the CJ Cup Byron Nelson odds, betting favorites and everything else you need to know.

CJ Cup Byron Nelson odds: Long-shot bet

For this week’s newly named CJ Cup Byron Nelson, we’re picking PGA Tour veteran C.T. Pan to beat the odds and come out on top. Pan’s odds to win to start the week sit at +10000.

Pan is a former top-50 golfer in the world, capable of winning any time he tees it up. He proved that at the 2019 RBC Heritage, which he won to earn his only Tour victory.

So far this season, Pan has only managed one top 10, but it was a good one: a T3-finish at the Mexico Open. Most intriguingly for our purposes is the fact that Pan finished solo 4th at last year’s Byron Nelson, just two shots short of winner Jason Day’s 23-under total.

If you put $10 on Pan to win and he comes through, you’ll earn $1,000. For insurance, consider placing additional small bets on Pan to finish top 10 and top 20.

Looking for more long-shot bets for the CJ Cup Byron Nelson? This week’s honorable mentions are Adam Schenk (+5000) and Kevin Yu (+9000).

CJ Cup Byron Nelson odds: The favorites

Leading the Byron Nelson field as the pre-tournament betting favorite is three-time major champion Jordan Spieth, who comes into the week with +1400 odds.

He’s followed by Alex Noren at +1800, and three players are tied at +2000, including Adam Scott, Si Woo Kim and defending champion Jason Day.
