Boom! 165-1 winner sparks massive profits

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

The loyal followers of this series know we’ve been stalking a massive week, while collecting a profit along the way. The near misses have been frustrating.

Well, we finally nailed that bomb we’ve been so close to nailing. Trey Mullinax was a pick at 165-1 here last week. His birdie putt on the final hole at the Barbasol Championship was glorious. In addition to Mullinax, our biggest play of the year, a 2-unit ticket on Taylor Pendrith to finish in the top 20 hit as well. When the smoke disappeared, we were left with a profit of nearly 23 units. I repeat, TWENTY-THREE UNITS.

I hope you cashed in big. I did!

Now, those weeks are going to be few and far between, but if you’ve read this series, you know my goal is to quietly make profits and then sprinkle in a huge week like this.

In addition to the British Open, we have another opposite field event on the PGA Tour, the Barracuda Championship and its modified stableford scoring system.

We don’t go as hard as last week, but hopefully we can continue the momentum with another haul.


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.
