    Will be up later for only Sky Bet have priced up the Sony so far.

    Have had five winning years out of five which have been proven by Optimum Racing and RTP,it is not a get rich scheme and on average have won 60 to 70 points per year.
    No guarantee that this year will be a winning year but will do my best for i back the players that i put up myself.

    Sony Open

    Jordan Spieth 1 point EW 33/1 1/5 6 Unibet, 888 33/1 1/4 5 SB, Black Type
    Did not win last year,however he has a good course record here and still believe that at only 25 he will bounce back certainly hope so.

    Kevin Kisner 1 point EW 50/1 1/4 5 SB, BF, Black Type
    Another who plays the course well having two top five finishes in the last three years and some say that he cannot play in windy conditions,last year he finished 7th at South Seas.

    • Think you’ve made a mistake on the Spieth price there, Colin.

      • Looks like Oddschecker are showing the wrong price for Spieth throughout. Best price probably 18/1 (19.5 to back on Betfair).

    • Hi Clarence,
      You can read this post here with some ideas for books etc, inc the comments…
      it’s not a game that can be mastered quickly.
      If you’re a complete newbie then you may be best googling basic intros to racing, i’m sure there may be some somewhere. It takes time.

    Rushing to go out must have hit the wrong button on Oddschecker checked prices at 4.10

    Jordan Spieth now 16/1 1/5 6 would not have put him up at this price but to late so have to stand by the bet

    Kevin Kisner now 40/1 1/5 6 would have put him up at this price so both bets stands with revised odds

    Bookies were late to price up on this event

    • I do not like 16/1 Speith for value? Kisner is a solid price I think.

      I will post up a selection on Wednesday. I am initially drawn to Cameron Champ circa 25/1 but as the tournament is in Hawaii and it will not start until late Thursday UK time, no rush.

    • You didn’t hit the wrong button Colin, Oddschecker messed up , but only on Jordan Spieth, I think!
