Lang’s Locks: Time to hit the PGA Tour team event in New Orleans

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

Sure, we had a small profit last week, but a bogey on the final hole by Aaron Wise proved to be a 4-unit swing (in the wrong direction). Been really close to that huge week, but sports betting is about treading water outside of the big hits, so let’s get right back to the links this week!

I have to be honest, when they first changed the Zurich Classic in New Orleans to a team event, I was very skeptical. However, the unique event has been terrific. They get terrific fields and there is walk-up music – sign me up!


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!
