My bookie called me this morning to ask if I wanted any action on this week’s Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.
Oh yeah. Big time.
As a person with great affinity for clubs of all types in Atlanta, I am keen on putting monster units out there for this weekend.
I've been bent over a barrel for the most part this summer, as my continued faith in Jordan Spieth and Shugo Imahira has gone perilously unrewarded. Also, Jon Rahm...you’re a dead man.
East Lake is notoriously one of the most difficult courses on tour. Don’t go chasing waterfalls here. Pick some stallions.
I’m on the run from several of my bookies and to put it kindly, I need to crack a massive nut this week and take a chunk out of the large, metastatic financial tumor that has attached itself to my testicles and second checking account. So let’s get into this week’s picks.
Picks to Win (with starting scores)
Webb Simpson (+1200)
Daniel Berger (+2800)
Scottie Scheffler (+10000)
Picks to Win (without starting scores )
Justin Thomas (+750)
Daniel Berger (+1400)
Collin Morikawa (+1800)
LPGA Korean Lock of the Week: There's government backed Certificates of Deposit and there's Jin-Yung Ko (+1000) to win the ANA Inspiration September 10-13.
Bonus Kentucky Derby Hot Tip: Betting anything other than Tiz The Law is foolish, but scared money don’t make money. Take Enforceable at 28-1.
WNBA Fever: Nothing says you have a serious gambling problem like betting on the WNBA, but we're already down big and football hasn't even started yet.
I've always found ladies hoops to be the purest form of gambling because in a league where most games feature more turnovers than points, you're never out of it until the final buzzer.
Tonight the (4-11) Washington Mystics travel cross country to take on the (13-3) Seattle Storm in what some have called the least anticipated sporting event of 2020.
My head marshal Darrel Bevin's brother works security at Alaska Airlines Arena and tells me the Storm have been spending more time practicing the pre-game kneel than they have the Triangle offense.
While Seattle preens for the camera in their matching social justice t-shirts, I'll be taking Washington and the points to get me back on the plus side of the ledger for the year.
