Championship Week Predictions

It's  Championship week in the world of college basketball, and it should be an exciting week of hoops. Even though the NCAA Tournament gets much of the hype and attention when the calendar flips to March, most college students care about their conference tournament just as much. With that in mind, let's take a look at four of the most prolific conference tournaments and make some Championship Week Predictions for how they will play out.

ACC

Florida State (1), Virginia (2), Louisville (3), Duke (4) are the top seeded teams in the 2020 ACC Tournament, and these are the four teams with a realistic shot of winning the title. This was definitely a down year for much of the ACC, but these four teams are all loaded and ready to make a deep run in March. It's hard to really get a feel for which teams have the upper hand this weekend, because all of the teams split games during the regular season. Florida State probably has the most talent, but Duke has some amazing freshness. Louisville has been great this season as well, but the pick in this tournament is the Virginia Cavaliers.

Big 10

If the Big 10 Conference Tournament plays out like the regular season race did, then the fans in Indianapolis could be in for a wild weekend. The Wisconsin Badgers will be the top seed this weekend after winning a share of the Big Ten regular season conference. Michigan State and Maryland will be the number two and three seeds respectively, and that could provide a huge showdown in the semifinals. The reason that this tournament could be the best of the weekend is because there are legitimately 10 teams that could win the title. The Big Ten Conference will be well represented in the NCAA Tournament, and this is going to be a battle. Michigan State finished the regular season on a roll, and it should continue this weekend.Take the Michigan State Spartans to win the Big 10 Tournament in Indianapolis.

Big 12

The Baylor Bears looked like the class of the Big 12 Conference for much of the season, but the Kansas Jayhawks just won their 15th Big 12 title in 16 seasons. Kansas has been the class of the conference, and they look like the best team in the country this season. There is a chance that a team like Baylor or West Virginia could go on a run and challenge the Jayhawks, but it's just hard to see that happening this weekend.Pick the Kansas Jayhawks to win the Big 12 Conference Tournament this week.

SEC

This has not been a banner season for the Southeastern Conference, but they do have some terrific teams at the top. The first two days of the SEC Tournament will likely feature little drama or excitement, but things should heat up in the quarterfinals. Top-seeded Kentucky and second-seeded Auburn appear to be on a collision course to meet in the title game, and that would make for a thriller on Sunday. Both teams could be a Final Four contender this season, but Kentucky just feels like the better team. If you are doing any

How to Bet on Golf

So you know the NFL odds like the back of your hand, you have NBA betting mastered, College basketball wagering is a breeze and you've even cashed in on UFC betting.

But do you know how to bet on golf? Read our Golf betting guide for an in depth look at turning the greens into green.

Should a tournament be shortened, or otherwise affected due to weather conditions the official result will be used when grading all wagers, including tournament Outrights, Matchups, 2/3 Balls and Group bets, regardless of the number of rounds played. However should there be no further play after a bet is struck that bet will be void. In the event of a postponed event all bets stand. A player is deemed to have played once he/she has teed off. In the event of a player withdrawing after having teed off, wagers will be lost on outright, group, match or 18 hole betting.

In a DEAD HEAT the stake money on a selection is divided by the number of runners involved in the dead heat. The full odds are then paid to the divided stake with the remainder of the wagered amount being lost.

Outright Betting

Bets placed prior to the Monday immediately preceding an event are 'All in compete or not' and non-players are losers. Bets placed from the Monday of that weeks' events are 'non-player no bet' and we reserve the right to deduct the equivalent Tattersalls rule 4c to reflect returning stakes on non-players. Any players who withdraw after they have teed-off are considered as players and are therefore losers, except in the following circumstances: For outright betting, bets placed on players after they have teed-off are void provided that the player takes no further part in the event after the bet is placed, eg bets placed after the second round and the player withdraws before the third round - such bets on the withdrawn player are void and we reserve the right to deduct the equivalent tattersalls rule 4c.

Tattersalls Rule 4

The rate of deduction will be based on the following scale: Current Odds at withdrawal Deduction in the $
330 or shorter 75c
-250 - -300 70c
-188 - -225 65c
-165 - -175 60c
-125 - -150 55c
-105 - -120 50c
+100 - +120 45c
+125 - +150 40c
+168 - +175 35c
+188 - +225 30c
+250 - +300 25c
+330 - +400 20c
+450 - +550 15c
+600 - +900 10c
+1000 - +1400 5c
Over +1400 No Deduction

In the event of two or more players being withdrawn before the tournament start, the total deductions shall not exceed 75c in the $.

Should a player be withdrawn and a new market formed, deductions will apply only to wagers placed prior to the announcement of the withdrawal.

  1. When more than one player shares the same lowest score in a tournament and there is no play-off, wagers are settled by the normal dead-heat rules.
  2. In the event of a play-off the result of the play-off will determine the winner of the tournament only. No matter how may players contend the play-off, such a play-off has the sole purpose of deciding the winner of the tournament and the relative finishing positions of unsuccessful contestants is not affected for Outright, Match or Group bets which are settled as detailed below.
  3. For To Finish in Top 4 bets, dead heat rules apply. For example, after 72 holes the leader board looks like
Player Score Strokes
Player 1 280 Par
Player 2 281 +1
Player 3 282 +2
Player 4 282 +2
Player 5 282 +2
Player 6 283 +3

72 Hole Matchup Betting

In 72 Hole matchup betting the winner will be the player with the highest placing at the end of the tournament.

For 72 matchups, if one player misses the cut, the other player is deemed the winner. If both players miss the cut, the lowest score after the cut has been made will determine settlement.

In 72 Hole Matchup betting in the event of a listed player being withdrawn prior to the first round then that match is void.

If a player is disqualified or withdraws after starting, either prior to the completion of two rounds or after both players have made the cut, the other player is deemed the winner.

If a player is disqualified during either the 3rd or 4th rounds, when the other player in the match bet has already missed the cut, the disqualified player is deemed the winner.

If the 2 players shoot the same score there is a push

18 Hole Matchups

The same rules as 72 Hole matchups apply except wagers are graded as per 18 holes. Paired players, may or may not be playing together. If the 2 players shoot the same score there is a push.

72 Hole Group Betting

In 72 hole group betting the winner will be the player with the highest placing at the end of the tournament. Players missing the cut will be eliminated. If all listed players miss the cut the player with the lowest score at the cut will be deemed the winner.

In 72 Hole Group Betting in the event of a tie dead heat rules apply. In 72 Hole Group betting in the event of a listed player being withdrawn prior to the first round then all wagers are void.

Top European Players, Top US Player etc are settled in the same way as 72 Hole Group Betting

3 Ball Betting

For the first two days of most tournaments, golfers go out in groups of 3 players called 3 balls. This presents the betting opportunity called '3 balls'. A price is offered for each player to be the lowest scorer of the three over the eighteen holes. Dead-heat rules apply.

Should a player in the 3 ball not tee-off all bets in that 3 ball are void. However should a player retire during the round he will be deemed to have played. In the event of a 3 ball being rearranged all bets in that 3 ball will stand as per original pairings.

3 ball betting is where we offer odds on which of the 3 golfers scores the lowest score.

3 ball betting is always based on 18 holes/1 round. There is no tie selection offered.

Should there be a tie for the lowest score as follows; Player A 70, Player B 70, Player C 72 the Dead Heat rules apply.

There cannot be a push in 3/2 ball betting.

In the case above bets on:

Player A are paid out at half wagered amount to full odds with half wagered amount as a loser.

Player B are paid out at half wagered amount to full odds with half wagered amount as a loser

Player C are losers

Should there be a tie for the lowest score eg; Player A 70, Player B 70, Player C 70 the Dead Heat rules applies.

In this case bets on:

Player A are paid out at 1/3 wagered amount to full odds with 2/3 wagered amount as a loser.

Player B are paid out at 1/3 wagered amount to full odds with 2/3 wagered amount as a loser.

Player C are paid out at 1/3 wagered amount to full odds with 2/3 wagered amount as a loser

Should a player in the 3 ball not tee-off all bets in that 3 ball are void. However should a player retire during the round he will be deemed to have played. In the event of a 3 ball being rearranged all bets in that 3 ball will stand as per original pairings.

2 Ball Betting

For the final two days of most tournaments, golfers go out in groups of 2 players called 2 balls. A price is offered for both players to be the lower scorer over the round, as well as a price for a tie. Bets stand once the players have teed off the first hole. If a round is abandoned, bets on that round are void.

PGA Betting

Professional golf evolved through a series of trial and error, rather than by someone's ingenious design. As golf clubs, organizations and sponsors across the globe began to create more tournaments, they were eventually brought together into a circuit, thus creating the first tours.

Golf began to create the semblance of government in the early 1900's when the Professional Golfers of America associated in 1916. Then golf experienced a huge boom in the 1950's catapulting it in to the phenomenon it is today. Golf remains one of the most profitable sports for individual sports' athletes in the world.

Of all the tours currently in the world, the PGA Tour remains the most prestigious. The PGA Tour offers the richest purses and consists of 48 tournaments spanning the 44 week regular season. Each tour consists of either 132, 144 or 156 players. Players will typically participate in 20-30 tournaments in the PGA Tour.

The European Tour is the second tier of the professional golf tours. The purses are not as rich as the PGA Tour, which is a reason that Europeans gravitate away from the European Tour. Because of the climate in Europe, professional golf is a year-round sport with 52 official money events spanning 52 weeks.

Following the PGA Tour and the European Tour are the less prestigious Champions Tour and the LPGA Tour. The Champions Tour is international, hosting events in North America and the United Kingdom, while catering to golfers 50 years of age or older. The Champions Tour was formerly known as the Senior PGA Tour.

The LPGA Tour is for ladies only, though ladies can compete in PGA events if they so desire. The tour lasts the full year, with a three week break over the Christmas holidays. In total there are 34 events, including the four majors.

Following the top four tours (PGA, Europe, Champions and LPGA) are the Asian Tour, Japan Golf tour and LPGA of Japan Tour. All are moderately successful but offer low purse money in comparison.

The PGA Tour is still the most prestigious because it offers the glory and the gold. The winner of the Arnold Palmer Award (given to the player who ranks highest on the money list) has earned as little as $7 million and beyond $10 million in a single year.
