Cure for a down week: LIV’s return!

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

We have three professional golf tours in action this week, as LIV golf makes its 2023 debut. LIV availability can be hit and miss at the sportsbooks, so don’t be discouraged if you can’t find the numbers – we have plenty of bets to go around this week.

Coming this weekend: MLB futures! Check out Friday’s edition of Lang’s Locks.

Until then, good luck and enjoy. 


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!
