EVENT: Valero Texas Open (Thurs.-Sun.)
WHY WE’LL WATCH: To see how the 11 Masters entrants will play – and whether Rickie Fowler can earn a spot to Augusta National (by winning).
COURSE INFO: The Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio was designed by Greg Norman and is one of the tour’s longer courses at 7,435 yards. The main challenge here is avoiding the abundant oak trees that line the narrow fairways, making accuracy paramount.
FAVES: With just 24 of the world’s top 100 on hand, Tyrrell Hatton (+1200), Fowler (+1800) and Si Woo Kim (+2000) top the board.
BET TO CONSIDER: Ben Martin To Win, +8000. As recommended by Keith Stewart of “Read The Line,” Martin has two top 10s in his last four starts. And he needs to win to play the Masters. No wonder longshots such as J.J. Spaun, Andrew Landry and Steven Bowditch have triumphed since 2014.
Prop Queen Ariel Epstein will discuss her Lakers-Bulls picks on tonight's NBA BetCast. NBA expert Kazeem 'Kaz' Famuyide and PointsBet ambassador Paige Spiranac join the fun.
THE PROP QUEEN
Lakers -2.5 @ Bulls (-110) [8:00 p.m. ET]
"Rest plus revenge equals reward. The Lakers’ last game was Sunday against this same Bulls team, and they lost by 10. With LeBron back in the starting lineup, they’ll take care of business in the Windy City."
Bulls' Zach LaVine under 26.5 points (-115)
"LaVine put up 32 in L.A. on Sunday but do not expect a repeat. The Lakers are a top-10 defense since the All-Star break, and LaVine scores less at home (23.3 PPG) than on the road (27.1 PPG)."
THE NBA HOST
Knicks -4.5 vs. Heat (-110) [7:30 p.m. ET]
"The combo of Immanuel Quickley and a returning Jalen Brunson has me taking the Knicks."

[$40] 76ers -4: The Sixers have been ATS beasts all season (44-31), especially at home (23-14).
[$25] Joel Embiid over 34.5 Points (-110): Philly’s MVP candidate has been on a ferocious scoring binge, and the Mavs are nothing special on defense.
[$20] Under Total Points (232): Both teams rank bottom-5 in pace, and the under is 6-1 in their last seven meetings in Philadelphia.
[$15] Kyrie Irving under 24.5 Points (-115): He has been relatively quiet since Luka Doncic returned from injury, averaging just 14 FG attempts and scoring fewer than 20 points in each of his last three games.
