March Madness Bracket Predictions: NCAA Tournament Picks for the South Region

March Madness is officially here and RotoBaller will be giving a full breakdown on each region, beginning with the South. First, a couple of notes and tips. The Selection Committee did an awful job.

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): Valspar Championship

Adam Scott did it again. He won his second tournament in a row holding off Bubba Watson by one stroke. My top pick, Dustin Johnson, was right up there heading into Sunday, but shot a final round 79. Sound like a familiar story? Well, yeah. Johnson is known to blow up on Sunday so it... Read More

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): WGC- Cadillac Championship

Adam Scott defeated Sergio Garcia by one stroke to win the Northern Trust Open. Rickie Fowler was playing the best golf before the weekend, not bogeying in the first two rounds, but couldn't sustain his strong play, as he finished T6. I thought I found the gem of the tournament, George McNeill, after Thursday, as... Read More

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): Honda Classic

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): Northern Trust Open

Phil Mickelson was lining up on the 18th hole for a birdie putt, to force a playoff, when CBS showed a stat saying Mickelson was 23-for-23 on putts within six feet for the tournament. Once that stat was shown, I knew he would miss it. The putt lipped out and Vaughn Taylor won, overcoming a six... Read More

PGA DFS: DraftKings Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks and Advice for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

What a Phoenix Open that was. I wonder how many watched Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama play all four playoff holes, even though the Super Bowl was kicking off during the playoff.

PGA DFS: DraftKings Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks and Advice for the Waste Management Phoenix Open

Golf is a gentleman's game. Fans applaud and are mostly very polite and respectful. The Waste Management Phoenix Open is the complete opposite. It is the rowdiest golf tournament. Most of the fans are very drunk. They dress up in all different costumes, and shout and scream at the players. It's made for TV. If... Read More

Upset Picks For Week 17 Of The NFL Season

I went 2-1 straight up and against the spread this past week. Last week I wrote, "There's due to be one huge upset this week." That upset was the Rams beating the Seahawks in Seattle as 13-point underdogs. I have little interest in games this week that are meaningless, therefore I will focus on games that have playoff...

NFL Survivor League Picks – Targets & Avoids for Week 14

The NFL is so impossible to predict. I was correct with my 49ers pick upsetting the Bears, but the Saints came up short against the Panthers.
