WHY WE’LL WATCH: The first full-field PGA Tour event since pre-Thanksgiving features some players who took a 37-minute flight 🛩️ from last week’s Sentry event. Hideki Matsuyama defends his title after shooting 23-under, outlasting Russell Henley in a playoff.
COURSE INFO: Honolulu’s Waialae CC is short (7,020 yards, par-70) and tight with doglegs and 83 bunkers.
THE FAVS: With only seven of the world’s top 25 playing, here are the top five: Tom Kim (+1100), Sungjae Im (+1200), Jordan Spieth (+1600) Brian Harman (+1600) and Matsuyama (+2000).
BET TO CONSIDER:Kim Top 5 (+250). He finished fifth last weekend, and eight of the last nine Sony Open champs warmed up at the Sentry.
The PointsBet triumvirate of ambassador Paige Spiranac, NBA studio host Kazeem 'Kaz' Famuyide and Props Queen Ariel Epstein fire off their best plays.
THE FORMER PRO
Brian Harman Top 10 at Sony (+190)
"Accurate driving is a must, so I like Harman. And check out the Top 10 odds on Russell Knox (+900)."
Pacers-Knicks Over 227 (-110)
"Sorry, Thibs, the Knicks' defense is not as good as you think."
THE NBA HOST
SGP: Bucks -4.5 & Over 231 (+260) vs. Hawks
"I expect Giannis to break out in Atlanta. Both teams play at a fast pace."
Celtics Alt Line -4.5 (-275) vs. Pelicans
"No Zion and no Ingram. But McCollum and Valanciunas will help New Orleans keep it competitive."
THE PROP QUEEN
Rockets' Alperen Sengun Over 23.5 P+R (-120)
"The Kings have allowed double-doubles to big men Nikola Jokic, John Collins and Thomas Bryant in the last 10 games."
SGP: Ja Morant Over 28.5 pts & Grizzlies ML (+100) vs. Spurs
"San Antonio allows the most points in the league. And since 2019, teams on a 5+ game win streak are 164-70 straight up versus teams below .500."
