Sports betting world centered in Phoenix this week

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

I was there the last time the Super Bowl and the Phoenix Open were both played in Phoenix. I covered both all week and the craziness ended with the interception on the goal line to give Tom Brady another ring. 

This week is going to be a blast out there and we’re going to dive into both big events. Up first, the golf. We also sprinkle in some Euro action. Last week was a dud, but the Locks VIPs demanded Korn Ferry action and we hit a 90-1 bomb in Pierceson Coody.

Come back Friday for wagers on the big game.


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! Remember this is a VALUE-based system, so don’t settle for a price significantly less than the one listed. And jump on better prices!
