THE SENTRY CLUB

EVENT: Sentry Tournament of Champions (Thurs-Sun)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: The PGA Tour’s Opening Day occurs at a golfing paradise 🍍 that can yield crazy-low scores, depending on the trade winds 🌬️. Cam Smith set a PGA Tour record last year by finishing 34-under. Plus it’s a “designated” event with a stronger field (17 of world’s top 20) and larger purse.

COURSE INFO: The open-to-the-public Plantation Course at Kapalua is a 7,600-yard, par-73 that features 93 bunkers and massive elevation changes.

THE FAVES: Jon Rahm (+650), Scottie Scheffler (+900) and Patrick Cantlay (+1000) lead the way. Rory McIlroy opted out with no explanation.

BET TO CONSIDER: Rahm Top 5 (+130). He shot 33-under last year and is 5-for-5 in Top 10s.

EXPERT PICKS

Former pro golfer Paige Spiranac, our beloved ambassador, makes her Picks debut. PointsBet capper Daniel Parisi chimes in with a golf and NBA selection.

THE SOCIAL MEDIA STAR

Xander Schauffele (+1100) to win the Sentry TOC
"The course fits his game: He won in 2019 and hasn't finished worse than 12th since. Coming off a great 2022, he'll be even better in 2023."
Raptors -5 vs. Bucks (-110)
"Milwaukee has struggled without Khris Middleton. Giannis can only do so much!"

THE CAPPER

Patrick Cantlay (+1000) to win the Sentry TOC
"A model of consistency, Cantlay loves this event. He has had two top-5 finishes in his last four starts."
Heat -7 vs. Lakers (-110)
"Preferred this at 5.5 but still like Miami, quietly going about its business with key personnel getting repeat minutes."

Here are our faves from tonight’s 12-game slate:

🏀 [$25] Grizzlies vs. Hornets Under 236.5 (7 p.m. ET): The Under ⬇️ has hit five straight times after New Orleans allowed 100+ pts in its previous game. Memphis has similar bounce-back numbers.

🏀 [$40] Heat vs. Lakers Under 229.5 (10 p.m. ET) : L.A. has trended Over ⬆️, but Miami plays at the third-slowest pace in the NBA. Fewer possessions = Fewer points.

🏀 [$35] Hawks +1 vs. Kings (10 p.m. ET): Sacramento played in Memphis on Sunday and Utah last night 🛬; Atlanta had a day off following its double-OT loss to the Warriors.
