Odds & Picks To Win The PGA

The Oddsmakers’ Picks To Win The PGA Championship: Rory McIlroy 7/1, Jordan Spieth 7/1

McIlroy is one of the favorites because, well, it’s Rory McIlroy. Rory played great in his last 2 tournaments. He shot a 275, -5, at The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. Then, he shot a 273, -7 at the WGC-Bridgestone last week. Rory’s tightener at the WGC-Bridgestone means he’s got a shot.

Spieth won The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale with a 268, -12. Spieth tightened his game up at the WGC-Bridgestone with a 276, -4. Both golfers deserve their favorite status.

But, I don’t recommend wagering on either golfer. The reason is that it’s difficult, for me at least, to swallow less than double-digit odds on any golfer to win a PGA Tournament, much less win a major PGA Tournament.

The Sharp Pick To Win The PGA: Rickie Fowler 16/1

Eventually, Fowler’s going to take home the trophy for one of the PGA’s majors. He could take home the PGA Championship trophy this week. First, Rickie’s form has been fantastic. He finished fifth at the U.S. Open, third at the Quicken Loans National, twenty-second at the U.S. Open, and ninth at the WGC-Bridgestone.

But, that’s not the real reason to like Fowler going into this week’s PGA Championship. The real reason to like Fowler is that he often hits the ball well at Quail Hollow. Quail Hollow is the site of this year’s PGA Championship Tournament. Fowler won the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in 2012.

The Long Shot Pick To Win: Justin Rose 28/1

Rose’s form is a mess. He missed the cut at the U.S. Open. At Royal Birkdale, Rose finished in fifty-fourth place after shooting a 284, +4. At the WGC-Bridgestone, Rose shot a 288, +8. He finished in sixty-third place.

Why, then, do I like Rose as a possible longshot play to win the 2017 PGA Championship? Rose was only a stroke off from last year’s Wells Fargo Championship winner. Rose shot a 280, -8. If he can rediscover some of that Quail Hollow magic this week, he could win.

The Oddsmakers’ Pick To Win Super Bowl 52: New England Patriots 5-1

New England should be the favorites. Even without Rob Ninkovich, the defense is going to be just fine. The real story is the offense, which added a big-time playmaker in former Saint WR Brandin Cooks for Tom Brady to exploit.

Why then have the odds drifted from 5/2 to 5/1? I think a lot of it’s due to the Patriots’ schedule. In addition to playing the Jets, Bills, and Dolphins on the road, New England has road games versus New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Denver, Oakland, and Pittsburgh. That’s 5 incredibly tough road games.

5 to 1 are better odds than 5 to 2. It’s still not high enough for me to back the Pats.

The Under The Radar Pick To Win: Atlanta Falcons 12-1 

What’s wrong with the Atlanta Falcons? Granted, their schedule is no cakewalk. The team did get better during the off-season, though. What I’m excited about seeing is how Dan Quinn’s defense takes hold in the Athens of the South. Atlanta’s offense should, once again, be one of the top units in the NFL.

But, man, Quinn really put some assets towards the D. DE Takkarist McKinley could be one of the best defensive ends in the NFL within 2 to 3 years. He should be a starter midway through this season. Drafting ILB Duke Riley in Round 3 was a steal.

I think Atlanta’s a smart bet and I’m a huge New Orleans Saints fan. So, you know it gives me no pleasure to write that.

The Value Pick:  Philadelphia Eagles 40-1

The Eagles made 3 moves that makes them 40 to 1 odds to win the Super Bowl . First, Philly signed WR Alshon Jeffrey. The Chicago WR has as much talent as any WR in the NFL. Second, the Eagles drafted DE Derek Bennett from Tennessee.  The man has a non-stop motor.

Third, the Eagles drafted CB Sidney Jones from Washington in Round 2. Jones, if he’s healthy, should be one of the best DBs from this draft class. Oh, yes, there’s a fourth thing. In Round 3, the Eagles drafted CB Rasul Douglas from West Virginia.

Douglas is tearing it up in training camp. I’m telling you, watch out for Philly. They can win the NFC East, which means they’ll make it to the playoffs. From there, you never know what might happen.

Blake Bortles (JAX) +10000
DeMarco Murray (TEN) +10000

The Oddsmakers’ Pick To Win MVP: Tom Brady +450

Brady was spectacular last season. He didn’t start playing until Week 5. He only threw 2 interceptions. He threw 28 TDs. There are plenty of reasons to believe that Terrific Tom comes out and dominates this season from beginning to end.

But, I’m worried about 2 things. First, the Patriots’ schedule implies that Brady has a much tougher time under center this season than he did last season. Second, when is Terrific Tom going to slow down? When it happens, it could happen quickly.

+450 odds are just too low to make a decent buck.

The Smart Pick To Win: Russell Wilson +1200

I prefer Russell Wilson at 12 to 1 odds. Wilson has a desire to play in the NFL for 25 years. What it means is that Russell must keep himself in shape. Not only that, but I love signing Eddie Lacy. Lacy is the type of running back that should help Russell big time.

When Wilson has time, he’s as good as any quarterback in the NFL. I’ve got the feeling Seattle bounces back with a huge season. If they do, it will be because of Russell Wilson.

Russell’s MVP chances rest on an offensive line that played below par in 2016. Again, if Russell gets any time in the backfield, he’s as good as any quarterback in the NFL. I believe Pete Carroll has shored up the Seahawks’ offensive line. I think Russell is a smart play at 12 to 1.   

The Long Shot Pick: Ezekiel Elliott  +2000

I get it. Zeke might be suspended for 2 to 4 games. As of today, though, July 30, Ezekiel Elliott hasn’t been suspended for a single game. He’s almost a shoo-in to lead the NFL in rushing. I also believe that Dak leans more on Zeke as a receiver this season.

There’s just no reason not consider the best offensive player in the NFL for the league MVP. He plays behind the best offensive line. His QB is dynamite. The defense isn’t bad. The owner, Jerry Jones, backs up his players.

I think Elliott offers excellent odds at 20 to 1.

2017-18 Odds & Picks To Win The PL Title

The 2017-2018 Premier League starts on August 11. That’s not a lot of days from now. The favorite to win this season’s Premier League is Manchester City. At +180 odds, I can’t back Man City. Why? Keep reading to find out.

The Oddsmakers’ Pick To Win The PL Title: Manchester City +180      

The odds are too low on Manchester City to win the Premier League in 2018. Don’t get me wrong. With Fernandinho, Sergio Aguero, and terrific Nigerian player Kelechi Iheanacho, Man City has as much talent as any squad in the Premier League. I just don’t feel that it’s smart to bet on a team at less than 2 to 1 odds to win the deepest league in soccer.

There are all sorts of reasons why Manchester City should win the 2017-2018 Premier League. Then again, Man City was the favorites last season before Chelsea took home the title by an easy 7 points. 

The Sharp Pick To Win The PL Title: Chelsea +350

Speaking of Chelsea, they’re offering +350 odds to win the Premier League. I wish I could look past this squad. I can’t. In June, Antonio Conte was shopping Diego Costa, Blue’s top striker. Costa and Conte have always had a rough relationship.

But, as of July 30, Costa is still a member of Chelsea. Is that good news? No…that’s great news! I know that Costa and Conte don’t get along. I don’t care. When Costa’s on the pitch, he plays his heart out.

The rest of last year’s Premier League Champions is intact. I don’t understand why their odds are lower than Man City’s. That’s okay. I’m going for it!

The Value Pick To Win:  Everton +6000

I know Everton should have no shot. Then again, Leiceister City won the EPL a couple of seasons ago. So, never say never. What I like about Everton is that they signed Wayne Rooney, the former Man U great. Rooney should help Everton be more competitive in the tough English Premier League. Rooney used to play for Everton. His homecoming could be special.

But, that’s not the only reason I like Everton. Everton is one of the few teams left with a chance to acquire Olivier Giroud. Giroud is one of the best strikers in EPL. If Giroud ends up at Everton, they’ll be an unbelievable bet at 60 to 1.

Odds & Picks To Win The College Football National Title

The Clemson Tigers are defending National Champions, but as expected the oddsmakers have installed the Alabama Crimson Tide as the favorite to win the 2018 College Football National Title. The Tide is a low 5 to 2 chalk to take home the top prize.

Is Alabama a deserving favorite? Probably. But at 5/2 it may be a tough bet to swallow for some. Keep reading for other popular College Football National Title betting picks along with the complete betting odds.

Full list of odds to win the 2017-18 CFB title game

The Oddsmakers Pick To Win The CFB Title:  Alabama Crimson Tide 5/2 

Alabama’s offense should be decent. If the Tide sticks to the rushing attack with big Bo Scarborough, the offense might be unstoppable. Then again, Alabama must rebuild its offensive line. Usually, that’s a death knell for teams. Not in Tuscaloosa. Nick Saban is always thinking 3 to 4 years ahead.

The Crimson Tide defense should be exceptional in the secondary. I have no doubt that Alabama’s defensive line has been restocked. There’s nothing to dislike about the Crimson Tide save for the odds.

It’s tough to go undefeated in the SEC. Just because of that, I can’t swallow 5 to 2. 

The Sharp Pick To Win The CFB Title: Oklahoma Sooners 15/1

This is the season the real Oklahoma Sooners come to play. With the retirement of Bob Stoops, Oklahoma has a chance to go in a different direction. Stoops was a fantastic coach. He’s a hall of fame coach. But, I think the program under Stoops in Norman became too mechanical.

The Sooners won’t be mechanical this season. Lincoln Riley is a young, smart, individual who wants to win right away. He could. QB Baker Mayfield is a top Heisman Trophy candidate.  The Sooners return enough on defense to dominate their Big 12 opponents.

That’s the thing. The Big 12 isn’t as deep this season as it often is. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State project to be the two best teams. Oklahoma almost always beats Oklahoma State. That makes Oklahoma a smart play at 15 to 1.

The Value Pick To Win The CFB Title:  Penn State Nittany Lions 20/1

Everyone, I mean, everyone believes the Big Ten comes down to Ohio State and Michigan. Are their memories that bad?  Penn State should have upset USC in the Rose Bowl. The Nittany Lions also beat Ohio State last season.

Why the disrespect? I’m not sure. Penn State returns 4 starters along the offensive line. Those guys are going to block for, arguably, the best QB in the Big Ten, Trace McSorley. They’re also going to block for, arguably, the best RB in the Big Ten, Saquon Barkley.

The defense is young. But, almost everyone on the defense has played. I love Penn State at 20 to 1.

Cowboys Vs Cardinals NFL HOF Game Line & Analysis

Cowboys Vs Cardinals NFL HOF Game Line & Analysis

The Dallas Cowboys will be looking to build on their fantastic 2016 campaign in which they stunned everyone by winning a whopping 13 games as rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and rookie quarterback Dak Prescott took the league by storm.

Veteran signal-caller Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals will look to rebound from their modest 7-81 season a year ago while getting back into the playoffs after having their three-year playoff run snapped last season.

Both teams will take the first step on their respective journeys when they square off in the first preseason game on the 2017 schedule. Better known as the annual Hall of Fame game.

Why Bet the Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys (13-4 SU, 10-6-1 ATS) had a fantastic 2016 campaign and they’re hoping for big things heading into 2017, but that’s not really relevant as far as this game is concerned. Instead of seeing Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley making plays all over the field, be prepared to see a bunch of second, and more likely, third and fourth string backups battle for the handful of roster spots that are available on every team at this time of year.

I guess it’s a good thing that Dallas can hand the ball to a bunch of experienced veteran running backs like Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris, and Ronnie Hillman, but what they really need to know is whether or not guys like Brice Butler, Noah Brown, Uzoma Nwachukwu and Ryan Switzer can actually catch the ball.

Why Bet the Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals (7-8-1 SU, 6-10 ATS) are looking to get back in the playoffs after seeing their three-year run get snapped in 2016, but they’ll have to get the win in this contest behind either Drew Stanton, Blaine Gabbert, Zac Dysert or undrafted free agent Trevor Knight as opposed to starter Carson Palmer.

Arizona also has a bunch of players competing for reserve roles at both, the wide receiver and running back spots, so you should expect to see more than the usual amount of shuttling in and out at the skill positions for Arizona.

Expert Analysis and Prediction

After signing veteran quarterback Luke McCown this week, the Cowboys will have the best backup on the field in this preseason opener. However, I suspect that McCown won;t play much if at all, leaving the outcome of this contest in the hands of Kellen Moore.

While I’m no fan of the awful Blaine Gabbert, I do like veteran Cardinals backup Drew Stanton. The difference for me in this affair will be Arizona’s superior defense. Right now, I’m thinking Cardinals linebackers Hassan Reddick and Scooby Wright are going to make life miserable for whichever backup is under center for the Cowboys. Take the Arizona Cardinals for the outright win people!
