PGA TOUR IN PARADISE

ALOHA, FRIENDS

Hideki Matsuyama has won in Hawaii AND Georgia.

EVENT: Sony Open in Hawaii ๐ŸŒบ (Thurs-Sun)

WHY WEโ€™LL WATCH: The first full-field PGA Tour event since pre-Thanksgiving features some players who took a 37-minute flight ๐Ÿ›ฉ๏ธ 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 worldโ€™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.

EXPERT PICKS

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."

THREE-PEAT IN THE CARDS?

POWER ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ RANKINGS

PointsBet Creative

  • Georgia (+250): The last to win three straight? Mighty Minnesota (1934-36).
  • Ohio State (+400): The winner of the Kyle McCord-Devin Brown QB battle will run a loaded offense.
  • Alabama (+425): The Tide haven’t gone three straight years without a national title since Nick Saban took over in 2007.
  • Michigan (+750): Jim Harbaugh is sniffing around NFL jobs. Again.
  • Clemson (+1200): Cade Klubnik has a full offseason to operate as QB1.
  • USC (+1200): Caleb Williams looks to strike the Heisman pose again โ€“ and be the top pick in the 2024 draft.
  • Texas (+1700): The first family of QBs enters a new generation with Arch Manning, but he might debut by backing up Quinn Ewers.
  • LSU (+2000): Brian Kellyโ€™s Year 1 featured an SEC West title and a new accent. QB Jayden Daniels returns to a stacked offense.
  • Penn State (+2000): After six years in State College, Sean Clifford gives way to 5-star prospect Drew Allar.
  • Notre Dame (+2500): Sam Hartman โ€˜portaledโ€™ from Wake Forest, bringing an impressive beard and five years of ACC experience.

WHAT WERE THE ODDS? ๐Ÿ’ฐ

1. After bogeying the first hole Sunday at Kapalua, Jon Rahm trailed Collin Morikawa ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ by nine shots.

Odds: Rahm was +8000 to win the Sentry TOC. Which he did!

2. The Texans faced a 4th-and-20 with 50 seconds left against the Colts. They converted โ€“ and hit on the 2-point conversion for their lame duck ๐Ÿฆ† coach.

Odds: Fair price for a Houston victory at that point? Try +1500.

3. Zach LaVine made it rain ๐ŸŒง๏ธ against the 76ers. One game after going 1-for-4 from downtown, he hit 11 triples!

Odds: LaVine to make that many bombs in a game? Weโ€™d offer +3500.

4. The Jaguars won the AFC South. For real. After starting 4-8 ๐Ÿคฏ.

Odds: Savvy bettors threw down at +1200 after the Lions handed Jax a 40-14 beatdown. The Jags won their final five games.

5. Da Bears crushed the Patriots 33-14 on MNF ๐Ÿ‘ to improve to 3-4. They finished 3-14.

Odds: By parlaying moneylines, we compute +4000 on a 10-game llllllllllosing streak.

6. The largest margin of victory IN THE HISTORY OF BOWL GAMES ๐Ÿ˜ฒ occurred Monday. Final score: Georgia 65, TCU 7.

Odds: Our traders would have offered +6000 for a Dawgs cover of 57.5 points.

SIZZLING NBA ACTION

IF I HAD $100 FREE BETS โ€ฆ

We see you, Nikola!

Here are our faves from tonight’s eight-game slate:

๐Ÿ€ [$50] Wizards -1.5 vs. Bulls: Scheduling advantage to the Wiz, who are home ๐Ÿ›ฌ for the second straight game while the Bulls are in their fourth arena in as many contests.

๐Ÿ€ [$30] Pacers +5.5 at Knicks: The Pacers have won two straight and get 48 hours to chill ๐Ÿ˜ด before visiting the Worldโ€™s Most Famous Arena.

๐Ÿ€ [$20] Nuggets -13 vs. Suns: Itโ€™s a massive spread considering how well Phoenix โ˜€๏ธ shot it Tuesday at Golden State. But the Nuggets and Nikola Jokic (+300 MVP) crush it at home.
