final eight teams, and DraftKings and FanDuel have loaded up the betting slate to add to the weekend's fun. This article in The Professor's Games of the Week will break down each Divisional Matchup and highlight The Professor's favorite "Divisional Specials" bet for each game on either FanDuel or DraftKings; for bettors looking to play more of those specials, The Professor will have an extra article highlighting such bets in addition to his usual Friday Props article. Spreads and totals are provided by DraftKings; Divisional Specials bets come from both DraftKings and FanDuel.
We are not here to brag on the results but rather discuss the process. We recommended that you fade players from the Raiders, Patriots, Eagles, Cowboys, Steelers, and Patriots as we thought they would be one and done. If you followed that strategy, you are likely in good standing in your playoff fantasy league as we make the turn to the divisional round.
The road to the 2022 Masters began last week with an impressive come-from-behind victory by Hideki Matsuyama. The victory came in Hawaii last week. Well, this week's PGA American Express tournament will stay on the west coast but this time in
We're back on mainland American soil, and the PGA Tour's West Coast swing begins with The American Express in La Quinta, California. This is the first of five events on the West Coast before the circuit moves east. The tournament has been a regular on Tour since 1960 under many names and has seen many alterations. It has rotated 13 different courses throughout its existence, and before 2012, it was a five-day event played over four distinct courses. Now it's a four-day event across three courses, with La Quinta Country Club making a comeback after being dropped last year to keep covid protocols in place.
I went 6-0 against the spread in the Wild Card Round, which means unlike the Cowboys, I'm moving on!
It’s once again time to be on the lookout for those alternative market bets, the players who perhaps don’t appeal tremendously in the outright market but offer excellent value elsewhere. Last week was a bit of a comedown following Leishman’s efforts at the Sentry. Webb Simpson was unable to deliver his usual level of form at Waialae, despite looking every inch a player ready for the test in the Hawaiian capital, while Brendan Steele, also disappointed, but onwards we move.
Here, we assess the betting results of The Oracle, the premiere handicapper at BeerLife Sports. We believe in sharing the details of his bets, the hits, and misses.
Last Minute Betting Tips from BeerLife sports previewing the 2022 American Express.
What a way to end the Hawaii Swing! Russell Henley and Hideki Matsuyama battled it out down the stretch, with the Masters champion erasing a five-shot deficit on the last hole to force a playoff. He would next hit one of the shots of the year, putting his 277-yard approach to within three feet for a kick-in eagle and the victory.
The Rams have not reached the end goal, but quarterback Matthew Stafford picked up his long-awaited first NFL Playoff win to close out Super Wild Card Weekend, and now it's on to the Divisional Round, where Stafford will attempt to bolster his playoff resume against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This article will cover The Professor’s low-cost DFS options for the upcoming NFL playoff action with prices from the full weekend slate. For insights specific to the Saturday or Sunday slates, keep an eye out for The Professor's weekly appearance on Razor's Red Zone.
The Best Bang For Your Buck in NFL DFS: DraftKings Divisional Round
Joining last year’s winner will be last year’s runner-up Patrick Cantlay, who lost out to the South Korean by just a single shot. Thanks to the absence of both Collin Morikawa and Dustin Johnson, Cantlay will be the second-highest ranked player in the event behind world number one Jon Rahm, who returns to action following his second in Hawaii a fortnight ago. Several other big players will be missing, with the likes of Justin Thomas, Viktor Hovland, and Rory McIlroy not featuring. In fact, only five of the current top 20 according to the rankings will be involved at PGA West this week, which means that those players outside the upper echelons of the OWGR will surely fancy themselves to do well.
The Desert Classic, CareerBuilder Challenge, Palm Springs Golf Classic, Bob Hope Desert Classic, Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, and Humana Challenge were previous American Express names. The Palm Spring Classic, which began in 1960, is the tournament's origin. In 1965, comedian Bob Hope became Chairman of the Board and attached his name to the event. The celebrity Pro-Am competition, which has drawn some of the most famous people from each era, was and continues to be the Classic's most significant draw.
The fact that three NFC West teams are currently alive is a scheduling technicality, but while either the Cardinals or Rams will see their season end tonight, it is fitting that the division still has three teams standing, because San Francisco's win over Dallas cemented the NFC West's status as the NFL's best division. That Cowboys' loss is the talk of the weekend, in no small part because Dak Prescott was the only quarterback in the "elite" discussion to produce a dud, while the NFL's two other 40 million-plus dollar quarterbacks turn in Hall of Fame Caliber performances.
Wild Card Weekend! One of the most fun weekends of the NFL season features 6 games and only one team is on a bye. This means we have 3 games on Sunday, preceded by 2 games on Saturday, and one game on Monday. This weekend we break down the best Wild Card Weekend DFS plays from across the sports landscape.
Player props! Player props everywhere! This weekend we have plenty of player prop bets for Wild Card weekend. Notably, most of these player prop bets take place on Sunday with a few sprinkled in for Monday and Saturday. This makes sense since the highest-scoring teams in the league play on Sunday, the Buccaneers, Chiefs, and Cowboys.
Super Wild Card Weekend is upon us, and DraftKings has added to the excitement with a variety of novel bets, including several that cover the whole of Wild Card Weekend. The first article in The Professor's Wild Card Games of the Week covered Saturday's games between the Raiders and Bengals and Patriots and Bills before diving into the props for Most Passing Yards and Team Scoring Specials available on DraftKings.
