Ryder Cup is underway! We start off by looking at what makes a golf tournament entertaining, combined with a prediction for what will happen.

I recently created SP K Prediction, which identifies positive expected value in MLB starting pitcher strikeout bets and automatically updates each morning. Additionally, it creates market odds for which pitcher will have the most strikeouts that day based on 10k simulations. Check it out, I think it's rad.
