Patrick Reed and Jon Rahm sit at the top of the odds boards to win the Farmers Insurance Open at the moment. Reed, whose tee time is 1:20 p.m. EST, sits at -10, tied for the lead in the field with Carlos Ortiz.

Rahm sits at -8, two strokes behind the leaders, but is regarded as a better golfer than both, so it’s hard to count him out.

Similarly, Viktor Hovland is also a popular golfer with a real shot at moving upwards from his current position at -8. Rory McIlroy is a stroke behind Hovland on the scoreboards but sits just ahead of him on the odds boards.

All of these golfers have tee times in the 1:00 p.m. to 1:20 p.m. range, so golf betting enthusiasts should make sure to tune in to their rounds as they are going on.

Watching the rounds live can inform the wagers one makes on who will win the Farmers Insurance Open.

NBA Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Minnesota Timberwolves were slated to have similar seasons before games started happening.

The Minnesota Timberwolves had a preseason O/U of 28.5 wins for the season, while the Cleveland Cavaliers sat at 21.5 wins. However, over the course of the first full month of play, the Cavaliers have won nine games of the 19 they’ve played, while the Wolves are a woeful 4-14.

The Timberwolves are the worst team in the Western Conference by a significant margin, and the online sportsbooks have picked up on this.

With Karl-Anthony Towns out for an indefinite amount of time due to COVID-19 and other injuries the Wolves have nobody to turn to.

  • Cleveland Cavaliers -3.0 (-110)
  • Minnesota Timberwolves +3.0 (-110)

The Cavs are three-point favorites as the visiting team, which is not something that will happen often.

The Cavs have a 10-9 ATS record, but that is buoyed by a 7-3 home ATS record. On the road, the Cavs are 3-6 against the spread - they have a pretty stark home/road split when it comes to the spread.

The T-Wolves are 7-11 against the spread overall, but at home, they’re 5-5, far better than their 2-6 road record against the spread.

The Timberwolves might not be able to win this game, but careful analysis of NBA betting trends suggests that they could be a threat to cover the spread at the very least.

NCAA Basketball Betting

From NBA basketball, the Preview now turns to the collegiate version of the sport as Washington takes on Washington State.

Washington vs. Washington State Spread

  • Washington State +2.0 (-110)
  • Washington -2.0 (-110)

Washington vs. Washington State Moneyline

  • Washington State +110
  • Washington -130

Washington and Washington State share a storied rivalry, and this matchup could add a very compelling chapter to it.

Washington enters this matchup as the favorite despite a 3-11 overall record, as they are at home and all three of their wins have come at home. They’ve only played six home games, and they’ve won three of those, whereas they’ve lost every road game on their schedule so far.

They’re also positive against the spread at home with a 4-2 ATS record. This is contrasted with a 5-9 overall ATS record.

On the Washington State side of the equation, the Cougars started the season hot, but have lost their last six games.

Performing poorly on the road this season, the Cougars are 1-3 straight up, although they are 3-1 against the spread.

College basketball betting players out west can give a good look at either side of this game on the spread or the moneyline.

This looks to be a close matchup, and there are a lot of potentially rewarding outcomes to be found on the sportsbooks.

Good luck!
