As we enter the waning days of 2016 and join our families for the holidays, let’s not forget what December was made for.
College Bowl Season!!!
The 2016-17 college football bowl season is underway. This college bowl season features several compelling matchups leading up to the College Football Playoff championship game on Jan. 9th in Tampa, Florida. Some bowl odds won’t offer much value — Alabama is by far the odds-on favorite to win the title — but others will have the excitement we expect throughout the rest of the season.
The College Football Playoff semifinals will be played on New Year’s Eve night. No. 1 Alabama is favored by 15-points to beat No. 4 Washington in the Peach Bowl, while No. 3 Ohio State is listed at -3.5 to beat No. 2 Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.

The New Year = The Return Of Tiger
The New Year is upon us and we have had a Tiger Woods sighting.
Woods finished in 15th in an 18-player field at the Hero World Challenge in early December, closing with a 4-over 76 in his first competitive tournament in 15 months.
That was enough to send the golf betting world into a dizzy and a flurry of action on his odds to win next year’s Masters. Woods’ odds to win the 2017 Masters were as low as 16-1.
Matsuyama’s (the Hero World Challenge Winner) odds to win the Masters were down to 15-1 earlier this month. He was one of five golfers with better odds than Woods.Jason Day and Jordan Spieth were 8-1 co-favorites to win the Masters, with Rory McIlroy at 9-1.
Tiger was listed at 20-1.The Masters will take place April 6-9 in Augusta, Georgia.
