2019 Clash at Daytona Betting Strategy

Football, basketball, and baseball handicappers get used to thinking in terms of either/or outcomes. Either one team covers the spread, or the other team covers the spread. Either one team wins on the moneyline or the other team wins on the moneyline. When it comes to handicapping sports like golf or auto racing, though, either/or thinking doesn’t apply. Casting a wide net on potential outcomes is what's going to turn you in to a NASCAR player as we get ready [...]

2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Betting Odds

One of the top tournaments on the PGA Tour takes place starting this Thursday, Feb. 7 when golfers head to Northern California with 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am betting lives on the line. Only two golfers offer less than quadruple-digit odds - Dustin Johnson and Jason Day. Both figure to have a shot to win on Sunday, but just choosing a single golfer from the pool of all available options won’t lead to many cashed tickets. It’s best to break up [...]

“The Match” – Tiger, Phil Provide Lesson on Side Bets

It may have come ten years too late, but The Match is finally upon us. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will descend upon Shadow Creek Golf Course, and don’t act as if you’re not interested in watching. If anything, this is the ultimate lesson in prop betting. And what better setting than a golf course in Las Vegas? Phil and Tiger have already set aside a $200,000 prop bet that Phil will birdie the first hole. I’m both terrible at [...]

Week 11 NCAAF Betting – Wisconsin vs. Penn State

The stakes are not as high as these teams had hoped, but Wisconsin and Penn State still have a score to settle in Week 11 NCAAF betting . Penn State beat Wisconsin 38-31 in the 2016 Big Ten Championship game, and Wisconsin has the motivation knowing they still have an outside shot to win the Big Ten West, which would return them to the Big Ten Championship. The beleaguered Penn State is out of the race in the East but [...]

The Rematch – GGG vs. Canelo Alvarez

by Alistair Bull Most observers felt Gennady Golovkin had the better of the fight against Canelo Alvarez a year ago, which ended up as a draw. This weekend, Golovkin looks to be good value to get the result in his favor in their rematch, where Golovkin’s three middleweight titles will be on the line. In the first fight on September 16 last year, one judge scored the fight 115-113 to Golovkin and a second had it 114-114, but a third [...]

by Alastair Bull While Aussie Rules fans look forward to the second round of their 2018 Australian Rugby League playoffs this weekend in the Land Down Under, the country’s other major football code is also in the second week of the postseason.

And in 2018, the National Rugby [...]

2018-19 England Premiership Rugby Preview

by Alastair Bull Saracens and Exeter were the two dominant teams in England Premiership Rugby last season, and most are predicting a similar tale for the 2018-19 season, which begins Aug. 31. The Exeter Chiefs topped the regular league last season, heading off Saracens by eight points. Both qualified for the final, and it was Saracens that won it all, beating the defending champions 27-10. Exeter are largely unchanged for this season, their only major acquisition being the Welsh international [...]

2018 Dell Technologies Championship – FedEx Cup Round 2

by Alastair Bull Two foreigners and the defending champion could be the best players to follow in the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston, the second tournament in the FedEx Cup playoffs. Thirty players will be knocked out of next week’s third tournament, the BMW Championship, but it’s likely that the winner will come from players who are all but certain of being around next week. World number one Dustin Johnson is a +900 favorite for the tournament, which [...]

Halep’s First Round Exit Stuns Women’s Bracket of U.S. Open

by Alastair Bull Punters could be in for another turbulent women’s singles major after the defeat of the top seed on the first day of the U.S. Open. Following on from Wimbledon, where none of the top-10 seeds made it to the quarter-finals, top seed Simona Halep was knocked out on day one by the unseeded Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, 6-2 6-4. Kanepi is ranked 44th in the world. Halep was near the top of the market but with just [...]

Djokovic Favored To Win 2018 U.S. Open

by Alastair Bull Novak Djokovic will head into the 2018 U.S. Open a deserved favorite after a great comeback from injury in 2018. Djokovic needed elbow surgery following a fourth-round exit in the Australian Open, and it took him a while to return to form. He did so splendidly in Wimbledon, beating Kevin Anderson in the final after overcoming Rafael Nadal in five hours and 17 minutes in the semifinal. The 31-year-old Serb was beaten by Stefanos Tsitsipas in the [...]
