Sports Betting Revenue Remains Strong Amid Nationwide Drop in Handles in June

  Sports Betting Revenue Remains Strong Amid Nationwide Drop in Handles in June Sports betting revenue remains strong despite handles dipping in June. New York was the the only state with a $1 billion handle. While inflation and gas prices continue to negatively affect the lives of Americans, states around the country continue to report sizable revenue in sports betting. Although handles dipped across the board in June, bettors are still seeking investments on sporting events as an alternative to the declining values of 401K portfolios. June was highlighted by action involving MLB, the NBA Finals, NBA draft betting, the NHL Stanley Cup Final, UFC and the Belmont Stakes.

The Wyndham Championship is the final event of the PGA Tour's "regular season." Unfortunately, unlike other sports, it isn't really going out with a bang as the field is limited. Most of the top players are already in the playoffs, so resting makes sense.

There is a little more drama, though, because some spots in the playoff field opened up due to suspensions. (Thank you, LIV Golf.) There is still upward and downward mobility for a number of golfers.

To get a sense of the limited field all you have to do is look at the odds table. With most events, we have a favorite in the 10-1 range. This week, we are well above that threshold.

Wyndham Championship 2022 Fantasy golf picks, rankings: Expert says back Corey Conners, fade Russell Henley

  Wyndham Championship 2022 Fantasy golf picks, rankings: Expert says back Corey Conners, fade Russell Henley Riley Gates revealed his PGA fantasy picks, DFS lineup advice, sleepers and predictions for the 2022 Wyndham Championship wraps up Sunday at Sedgefield Country Club. The tournament, which tees off Thursday in Greensboro, N.C., is the final event of the PGA Tour regular season, and players need to break into the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings to advance to next week's St. Jude Championship. The weakened field as players rest for the postseason provides an opportunity for players on the bubble like Rickie Fowler (123rd) and Cameron Champ (130th).

There are not a lot of par-fives on this course, and traditionally we have seen a lot of low scores. Look for that again, even though a lot of the top golfers are taking the week off.

It is harder to have a much better history on a course than Kim has posted at Sedgefield. Since 2016, when he won, he has posted second-, third- and fifth-place finishes. There is one missed cut in there too, but it is hard to find someone with that level of recent success on a particular course back-to-back. His recent form is solid, too, with back-to-back top-15 finishes.

Will Zalatoris 16-1

This is chalky because he is at the top of the odds table, but 16-1 for that position is a really nice value. You know he is going to get that first win on the Tour at some point, and you don't want to miss it. This feels like a perfect spot to break through for the first time.

Webb Simpson 18-1

Like Kim, Simpson has had a lot of success at Sedgefield. He won his first Tour event there, and 75% of the time he has finished in the top 11 on the course. He needs to play well to confirm his spot in the playoffs, but there is no reason to expect him to be tight given his success on the course in the past.

Taylor Pendrith 30-1

The Canadian has yet to win on the tour but he just finished second at the Rocket Mortgage Classic and has played well on courses like this one in the past. In this range, he is definitely worth a shot, especially in a lighter field overall.

Adam Scott 30-1

He was in the playoff of this event last year (eliminated on the first hole). Since then, he has been up-and-down, but as long as he is putting well, he can hang with the leaders this week. He has not won on the tour lately, but in a modest field, he has a great shot.

ACC College Football Championship Futures Betting Breakdown .
Clemson is favored to win the ACC at SI Sportsbook and Miami is poised to challenge in coach Mario Cristobal’s first season. Despite winning 10 games, 2021 marked a down year for Clemson as the program failed to win the ACC championship for the first time since Florida State completed the three-peat in 2014. Oddsmakers expect Dabo Swinney will enjoy a bounce-back campaign and lead the Tigers to a potential 12th consecutive double-digit win season. SI Sportsbook has installed the Tigers as prohibitive -143 favorites in an ACC conference that is more wide open than the betting odds indicate.
