Lang’s Locks: Let’s go with an Aussie in L.A.

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

Sports betting is alive and well in Louisiana. What better time to unleash Lang’s Locks, Week 3?

Every Wednesday, we will post picks for the week’s pro golf tournaments. We will also appear for other plays when they pop up. Let’s make a little money!

We nearly got you to the window with Patrick Cantlay in Phoenix last week. He had plenty of chances down the stretch in the three-hole playoff, but ultimately succumbed to Scottie Scheffler.

The Super Bowl did go our way. We nailed a few touchdown props. My wife (maybe she should write this column) hit Odell Beckham Jr. to score the first TD at 12-1.

This week the PGA Tour hits historic Riviera, site of major championships including the 1983 PGA Championship triumph by Shreveport’s Hal Sutton.

We’re going with some value on Cameron Smith (25-1). Smith finished fourth in L.A. last year.


All bets are measured in units. For instance, if your normal bet on a game is $100, that is one unit. If the bet is listed as .2 units, it’s a $20 bet.

Best line (as of Tuesday) is listed in parenthesis. Find the best price, one key to being a successful sports bettor! Shop around!
