Next up on the PGA calendar is the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Since 1992 TPC Summerlin (par 71, 7,255 yards, bentgrass greens) in Las Vegas has hosted this tournament. It is usually a birdie fest and with the weather looking good this year should be more of the same. Dean McHugh and Jack Hartman have more sharp plays to build the bankroll this weekend.

Week 6 in the NFL featured blowouts in two of the more anticipated matchups, but there were wild finishes from start to finish on Sunday, with the Jaguars picking up their first win on a walk-off field goal to open and the Steelers pulling out an overtime victory to close. It was also a light day on the injury report; the damage report will address those, but this week's article will focus on some of the NFL's divisional races with the first third of the season in the books. All Division Odds are provided by DraftKings.
There is no doubt that the Eagles two-point try led to a horrifically bad beat. (The spread was +6.5) Many people argued that they should have kicked the extra point and then gone for two, and the win, on the subsequent (fictional) touchdown. The rationale for this is understandable. The Eagles will have to kick an extra point and go for two to win, so the order does not matter. You might as well kick the extra point first. While understandable, the rationale is incorrect mathematically.
