The long shot

Last week, a buddy of mine was at the CES in Vegas, and I gave him a few sheckles to place some bets for me. I took the popular route, and placed some wagers on the Super Bowl and the NCAA Basketball Championships. I've done well with those bets before...why change horses mid-stream?

But I missed an opportunity.

Look at the current odds for the 2010 Masters .

Are you kidding me? 5:2 on Tiger when he is holed-up in a place unknown getting facial restoration (he's not shown himself at all...the fallout "is the reason" Prez Obama tells his staff...we should connect the should we), and has deemed to sit out this year?!

There are a lot of optimists out there! I'm not one of them. We won't see Tiger until the end of the 2010 guess would be the last couple tournaments to boost his stock over the winter and to create a media frenzy in anticipation going into 2011.

If I were his handlers, that's how I'd play it.

But I digress. The reason for this post is to tell you who I think will win the 2K10 Masters.

I think this year is the greatest opportunity to wager on golf's super dark-horses...those with over 100-1 odds...why? Because the golfers know this is their best chance too. This will be their best fighting chance to take a tremendous honor and trophy that Tiger Woods owns, and will take ownership of again....once he returns.

I like Weekly and Curtis. Both 125-1 odds, both steady-Eddie's...both do well in Majors.

That's my best guess...whom do you like? Place your bets!

Thanks for reading. Keep it in the short-grass,
