Hey momma, we did it again! LIV’s return sparks best week ever

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

I came into the 2023 campaign thinking it would be impossible to reach a 100-unit profit – especially with the small amounts we wager — like last year. Well, maybe I need to increase my expectations.

We collected a profit on three different professional golf tours last week. The highlight: a win ticket on 50-1 shot Charles Howell III.

Chuckie Triplesticks dominated the field as LIV Golf made its 2023 debut. We had an 18-1 top-20 finisher (Ryan Gerard) on the PGA Tour and hit our two biggest T20 wagers on the DP World Tour.

In the end, we collected more than 42 units – an all-time record for the Locks.

Our ROI is over 83 percent.

Light golf betting this week – think they’re onto us. However, how about some MLB futures action! We’re less than a month away from Opening Day. Let’s get some bets in. A lot of bets.

Good luck. 


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!
