EVENT: The American Express (Thurs-Sun) 

WHY WE’LL WATCH: Five of the world’s top 10 are in Cali 🌴 including Xander Schauffele, who withdrew from the Sentry two weeks ago with a back injury. Hot putters and longshots 🤑 thrive in this event — five of the last six champions were 50/1 or higher. 

COURSE INFO: Golfers play two rounds at the PGA West Stadium Course (7,187 yards with water on seven holes), one round at the Nicklaus Course (7,147 yards with longer par-4s) and another at La Quinta (7,060 yards with 82 bunkers). 

THE FAVS: Jon Rahm (+650), Scottie Scheffler (+1000) and Patrick Cantlay (+1200). Defending champ Hudson Swafford signed with LIV 💰. 

BET TO CONSIDER: Taylor Montgomery Top 20 (+150): The 27-year-old makes his AmEx debut. He has displayed remarkable consistency with seven top 15s in his last eight PGA Tour events.  

EXPERT PICKS

The PointsBet triumvirate of ambassador Paige Spiranac, NBA studio host Kazeem 'Kaz' Famuyide and Prop Queen Ariel Epstein fire off their best plays.

THE FORMER PRO

David Lipsky (+1000) Top 10 at the AmEx
"He tied for fourth last week and was top 15 in the event last year. He's playing well and I love his price (125/1) to win."
Mavericks ML (-135) vs. Hawks
"Luka Doncic has never lost to the Hawks (3-0) at home. He remembers that they traded him on draft night!"

THE NBA HOST

Memphis' Jaren Jackson Jr. (+475) Double Double vs. Cleveland
"With Donovan Mitchell (groin) out, I like Memphis -7.5. I also see a lot of activity for Jackson, who has two double doubles in his last three games."
Mavericks -2 vs. Hawks (-110)
"The Mavs are getting Dorian-Finney Smith and Josh Green back to provide defensive energy. I like Spencer Dinwiddie Over 2.5 3s (+110) and the Mavs to cover."

THE PROP QUEEN

Indiana's Myles Turner Over 17.5 points (-120)
"Turner is averaging 23.4 points against defenses that are bottom-10 in rebounding. OKC ranks 30th versus centers in points allowed."
Memphis' Desmond Bane Over 2.5 3s (-135)
"Bane has hit 3+ triples in five straight games. Miami allows the sixth-highest 3-point percentage."

WE DIG THE KNICKS

IF I HAD $100 FREE BETS …

Rudy Gobert is not the defensive force he was in Utah.

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

🏀 [$40] Cavaliers-Grizzlies Under 227.5: Memphis scores and yields in bunches, but the Cavs should slow the pace 😴 as they rank dead last in possessions per game.

🏀 [$30] Timberwolves (+8.5) @ Nuggets: Denver is playing its third game in four days, while the T-Wolves look to silence 🤫 those ripping the Rudy Gobert trade, namely Charles Barkley.

🏀 [$30] Knicks (-5) vs. Wizards: Bradley Beal’s expected return from a hamstring 🦵🏽 injury has slimmed the line by a point. Either way, the Wiz stink on the road (7-16).

This savvy client jumped on the Jags with 11:45 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Chargers nursing a 30-20 lead. Well done, sir! 🍾

JANUARY MADNESS

POWER 🏋️‍♂️ RANKINGS

In the heart of conference play, here are our latest odds to win it all:

  • Houston (+600): The title favorites have a national-best 22.9-point average margin of victory.
  • Kansas (+900): The defending champs lost a heartbreaker in OT to K-State despite Jalen Wilson’s 38 points & 9 rebounds. 
  • Alabama (+1000): The two-loss Tide rank second in possessions per game, and speedy Alabama remains undefeated in SEC play. 
  • Tennessee (+1200): The Vols ‘D’ ranks second in points allowed per game (54.3) and first in opponent shooting percentage (33.6%). 
  • Purdue (+1200): The Boilermakers rate outside the top 300 in KenPom’s adjusted tempo, but they’re No. 2 in adjusted offensive efficiency. 
  • UCLA (+1200): Jaime Jaquez Jr. saw his streak of double-digit points end at 27 games. 
  • Arizona (+1500): The Wildcats are slumping with two recent double-digit losses. 
  • Texas (+2000): Six of the Longhorns’ nine rotational players are seniors. Those vets were needed after the school’s removal of Chris Beard.
