Odds Are A Betting Favorite Breaks Through With Strongest PGA Field Ever At Harbour Town by Jay Ginsbach of Forbes

But Keefer notes his betting philosophy includes more than 90% of his bets being on match-ups, a similar stroke I adhere to when wagering on golf.

Vegas sports betting to get boost from Circa Sportsbook’s early opening by Patrick Everson of Covers

Sports betting in Las Vegas got word Wednesday that one of its newest operators, Circa Sports, is well ahead of schedule to open what will be its flagship sportsbook.

Included in that early opening will be the majestic sportsbook, a three-story venue that will be the largest in the industry.
