CAN RAHM BE BEAT?

BET THE FARM

Jon Rahm's dominance might even be taking him by surprise.

EVENT: Farmers Insurance Open (Wednesday-Saturday)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: Watching golf on a Wednesday feels like we’re cutting class. Which was – sorry, mom – a good time 😜. Jon Rahm is favored to win his third consecutive PGA Tour event, which has happened just 18 times since 1997. (Tiger 🐯 Woods accounts for 14.)

COURSE INFO: Those making the cut will play the South three times and the North once at famed Torrey Pines, which hosted the 2021 US Open. The South is longer with smaller greens and movement on 13 of 14 tee shots. The North has the beefier 🥩 par-3s.

THE FAVES: Rahm (+450), Xander Schauffele (+900) and Tony Finau (+1o00) opened as favorites.

BET TO CONSIDER: Finau (+185) to beat Rahm (+115) and Justin Thomas (+250) in 3 Ball (Round 1, 1:40 p.m. ET): Threesomes don’t get much hotter than this. We’ll tap Finau, who has four top-10s in eight Farmer starts 💪. CHECK THE LIVE ODDS!

EXPERT PICKS

The PointsBet triumvirate of ambassador Paige Spiranac, Prop Queen Ariel Epstein and college sports guru Lucy Rohden fire off their best plays.

THE FORMER PRO

Taylor Montgomery To Win (+3000 at start)
"It's so hard not to pick Jon Rahm, but his price is trash. I'll take Montgomery, the better value."
Warriors -3.5 vs. Grizzlies (-110)
"Golden State has been crushing it at home -- 14-9 against the spread! Never bet against Steph."

THE PROP QUEEN

Magic’s Markelle Fultz Over 12.5 pts (-115) vs. Pacers
“The line ticked up from 11.5 but I still like it. Fultz is averaging 13.7 since Jan. 1, and Indiana allows the most points to guards.”
T’Wolves’ Rudy Gobert Over 13.5 pts (-115) @ Pelicans
“No Brandon Ingram. No Zion Williamson. Opposing centers have been crushing NOLA – 19 points per game in the last five.”

THE COMEDIAN

Wisconsin-Maryland Under 124.5 (-110)
“The only thing as glorious as a nasty Big Ten football game is a gross Big Ten basketball game. Embrace it.”
Wake Forest +3 @ Pitt (-110)
"Wake might just be the best team in North Carolina -- Charlotte Hornets included."

CAN'T WAIT TILL SUNDAY

ODDS SHIFT 🏈

How's the ankle? We'll find out Sunday. (AP Photo)

  • Eagles +475 ➡️ +250: The NFL’s best total defense smothered the Giants, allowing just 227 total yards.
  • Chiefs +325 ➡️ +260: A healthy Patrick Mahomes would make KC the Super Bowl faves.
  • Bengals +800 ➡️ +260: Cincy went three decades 😴 without a Super Bowl appearance, but Joe Cool & Co. are positioned for B2B appearances.
  • 49ers +500 ➡️ +325: SF ranks top-5 in yards per play on both sides of the ball despite having a third-string rookie QB running the show. Purdy good.
SLAM DUNK FOR NOVAK?

NO DJOKING HERE

Can Aryna Sabalenka remain unblemished?

Who will rise Down Under?

MEN

  • Novak Djokovic (-455): The Serbinator looks destined to win his 22nd grand slam, which would tie him with Rafa Nadal for most ever.
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas (+400): The Greek God has dropped a mere two sets the entire tourney.
  • Karen Khachanov (+1600): His serve is massive but his 0-5 record against next foe Tsitsipas is concerning.
  • Tommy Paul (+2500): U-S-A! U-S-A! The world’s 35th ranked player is +1000 to beat Djokovic tomorrow. The game spread is 8.5.

WOMEN

  • Aryna Sabalenka (+125):  The “Warrior Princess” has not dropped a set.
  • Elena Rybakina (+150): The ace server won Wimbledon.
  • Victoria Azarenka (+450): It’s no backhanded compliment to say her forehand is her best stroke. A +165 underdog to Rybakina in the semis.
  • Magda Linette (+1200): The world’s No. 45 has beaten four seeded players.
INSIDE THE LINES

ASK THE TRADER 🏈🏀🎾⛳

PointsBet sports analyst Mike Korn breaks down the AFC title game: (Bengals -1 @ Chiefs):

“We opened KC -1.5, and this line has moved like a roller coaster 🎢. We took so much sharp action on the Bengals, they become the favorite and got out to -2 Monday afternoon. The movement is mainly tied to concerns over Patrick Mahomes’ ankle. More than 77% of the spread handle we’ve taken is on Cincy.”

To Win the Masters – Dustin Johnson +2200

  • “DJ won the Green Jacket in 2020 and has finished outside the top 12 at Augusta only once since 2015. The addition of 50 yards to par-5 13th should play right into his hands. He quietly played some of his best golf in ’22, winning $35M on the LIV Tour.”
