TAILING TIGER?

L.A. STORY

Yes, it was cool in L.A. this morning. Check out Rory McIlroy, who is second favorite (+900) at the Genesis Invitational. (AP Photo)

EVENT: The Genesis Invitational (Thurs-Sun)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: Tiger. Tiger. And a fantastic field beyond Tiger. This will feel and look like a major, with 19 of the world’s top 20 competing at Riviera, an iconic SoCal venue.

COURSE INFO: The “RIV” (not to be confused with LIV) is a 7,322-yard par-71 nestled among the Santa Monica Mountains ⛰️. The tree-lined fairways feature sharp doglegs. With little rain having fallen in Pacific Palisades, the contoured greens will play fast and firm.

FAVES: Jon Rahm leads the star-studded lineup (+750), followed by Rory McIlroy (+900) and Scottie Scheffler (+1000), who triumphed in the desert last week. Woods is +12500, equal to Tom Hoge and J.T. Poston.

BET TO CONSIDER: Viktor Hovland Top 10 (+260): He has flourished on this course, finishing T-4 last year and T-5 in 2021.

HOLLYWOOD ENDING?

HOW TO BET TIGER

PointsBet Creative

We’ve waited 215 days to watch Tiger Woods perform in a PGA Tour event. So what’s one more? He tees off with Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy at noonish local ⌚ (3:04 p.m. ET) Thursday.

Check out our Tiger Woods Hub:

  • PERFORMANCE. Winner/Top 5/10/20/30/40.

He’s 125/1 to win; those are longer odds than the Colts or Texans have of winning Super Bowl LVIII. Makes sense considering the last time we saw Tiger in a walking-only event, he limped to a 78-75 finish at the Old Course.

Top 20 (+550) might be worth a play. In his prime, Tiger accomplished this seven straight years. Or if you’re a FOMO guy, +15000 (150/1) to make an ace.

  • TO MAKE THE CUT (+140). Tiger has not walked 72 holes for four straight days since shattering his right leg in a car accident in 2021. But he needs just two solid rounds to accomplish this. He knows the course and has the shots.
  • ROUND 1 PLAYER PROPS. Tiger’s Over-Under score is 73.5. And he’s +7000 to lead the field.
  • 3 BALL (RD 1). Tiger is +350 to take down McIlroy (+150) and Thomas (+150). JT is like Tiger’s baby brother. Let’s hope they’re mic’d up.

EXPERT PICKS

PointsBet NBA studio host Kazeem 'Kaz' Famuyide crushed his Tuesday picks, hitting on the Celtics and Clippers. Here's what he, ambassador Paige Spiranac and college sports guru Lucy Rohden like.

THE NBA HOST

Knicks +3.5 @ Hawks (-110)
“The Knicks have played great since getting Josh Hart. That continues tonight. Also take the over. Defense will be on vacation before the break.”
Heat/Nets Under 212 (-110)
“Not a lot of top-level scoring but a hell of a lot of defense!”

THE FORMER PRO

Max Homa Top 10 (+210)
"Everyone's favorite L.A. guy will have a big week."
Tiger to Make the Cut (+140)
"He only needs one good leg."

THE COMEDIAN

Alabama +3.5 @ Tennessee (-110)
“Don’t expect to see the baskets in the river after this one.”
Virginia -16.5 @ Louisville (-110)
“I know the line seems crazy, but Louisville is really, really bad.”
TOP-10 MATCHUP

IF I HAD $100 BET CREDITS …

How we’d bet Alabama-Tennessee (7 p.m. ET), a clash of teams ranked 1st and 10th.

  [$70] Tennessee -3.5: Going with recent history – and data from betting analyst Jared Smith. Since 2009, a top-ranked team getting 3+ points has failed to cover six straight times, though two were pushes. The last instance: Kentucky throttling top-ranked Tennessee 86-69 in 2019.

[$30] Under 147.5: This total has been rising ↗️, even though the trend screams under: Nine consecutive Bama-Tennessee matchups have gone under.

POWER️‍♂️ RANKINGS

Is there a flag football team in pursuit of Derek Carr? (AP Photo)

Missing the NFL already?! We’re breaking down odds to win Super Bowl LVIII (in Vegas, baby!). Here are teams 11-20:

  • Jets (+3000): They have all the pieces in place – except for the most important position in sports. Will Aaron Rodgers see the light ☀️ and head east?
  • Dolphins (+3500): Real potential … if they can keep Tua in one piece.
  • Browns (+4000): They get Deshaun Watson for a whole season. Is that the good news or the bad?
  • Raiders (+4000): They moved on from Derek Carr without a backup plan. Can Davante Adams woo Rodgers to Vegas?
  • Rams (+4000): Their 2022 season summary: Everybody Hurts.
  • Vikings (+4500): Oddsmakers treated them like a middle-of-the-pack team in 2022. Starting off 2023 the same.
  • Giants (+4500): They might want to beef up their receiving corps to compete in the modern NFL.
  • Steelers (+4500): They went 7-2 after their bye week, so there’s hope for Pittsburgh in Year 2 of Kenny Pickett.
  • Bears (+5000): Sure, Justin Fields is legit. But considering they ended the season on a 10-game losing streak, you might want to invest elsewhere.
  • Broncos (+5000): Was Nathaniel Hackett the problem, or Russell Wilson? Enter Sean Payton and let’s find out.
