Lang’s Locks: Expect Duke-Carolina track meet in Final Four

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

Dang, another week of close calls on the links. We were all over Corey Conners at 70-1 at the Match Play, but he got edged in the semifinals. At the other PGA Tour stop, we had Alex Smalley (second) and Jhonattan Vegas (fourth). We were also on Houston in the NCAA Tourney and wound up one game short of a nice Final 4 cash. We still managed minimal damage and cashed in on Duke’s appearance in the semifinals.

Speaking of the Blue Devils. Saturday will mark the FIRST NCAA Tourney matchup with North Carolina? In Coach K’s swansong season? Incredible. We’re looking for a lot of points in the Superdome.

The PGA Tour heads to San Antonio this week and we’re stocked with Top 20 wagers.
