WGC - Accenture Match Play - Semifinals
After crazy days with snow in Arizona and all four top seeds getting bumped after the first two rounds, we are finally back to normal at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Two rounds on Saturday were not expected but everything worked out fine and we are left with a great Sunday Final Four. True golf fans cannot dislike any of the remaining four players (well maybe).
The weather wanted to get in the way again on Saturday with an early frost delay but the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship got off as expected and was able to finish both rounds. With 12 of the top 16 players in the field already gone, there were not many options for upsets but there was certainly not a lot of drama. In Round 3, only one match made it to #18 when Steve Stricker took out Scott Piercy 1 up. Four of the eight matches didn’t even make it past #15.
The quarterfinals saw some tighter matches with Jason Day and Hunter Mahan both winning 1 up while Matt Kuchar and Ian Poulter were able to close out their matches on #16. There is no true underdog left as we have two defending champions remaining (Poulter and Mahan), a player who is 13-3 in this event (Kuchar) and the unflappable Aussie (Day) which makes for some exciting golf in the semifinals on Sunday.
Listed are two Semifinal Round Matchup Best Bets (all for 2 Units):
Hunter Mahan +120 over Ian Poulter
Hunter Mahan is the underdog despite being the defending champion and rightfully so…sort of. Considering Ian Poulter took as much time off as he did and is playing as well as he is, is impressive. He is now an incredible 19-3-2 in his last 24 matches in this format which is off the charts. But the fact that Mahan has gone 151 consecutive holes without trailing is even more impressive. This is going to be an incredible match if it plays out like it should and the value is on the defending champion.
Matt Kuchar -140 over Jason Day
As much as I hate taking the chalk, I have to back Matt Kuchar here. He is still alive in our futures at 30-1 and we can root along for that only but we has a good edge here. He took out one of the hottest players in the tournament in Robert Garrigus as he started strong and would not led down, building a four-hole lead and winning 3 and 2. Jason Day defeated two Majors winners in one day and while he played well in the quarters, his opponent Graeme McDowell gave it to him.

At 4:25 pm, on Sunday, our complimentary selection is on the San Francisco 49ers + the points over the Dallas Cowboys. After shutting out the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1, the 49ers’ defense has sprung some leaks, and has given up 46 and 37 points the past two weeks. The knee-jerk reaction might be to play against the defensively-challenged 49ers, but consider that home underdogs are 63.4% ATS off a loss in which they failed to cover by more than a touchdown, if they gave up 37+ points in that defeat, and their opponent is off a straight-up win. San Francisco has gone 8-2-1 ATS at home vs. Dallas since 1980, while the Cowboys have covered just 48 of 123 on the road off a win, dating back to 1985. Take San Francisco. Good luck, as always…Al McMordie. And don't miss any of my red-hot winners, as I'm currently on a 53-27 RUN. Among our plays this week is a 100% Perfect 10 Club NFL play, backed by a 100%, 15-0 ATS System which hasn't lost in 30 years. Join for a week or month today to get all of our award-winning plays.
