Fargo Cashes 40/1 PGA Winner!

CE Manager 0 hours, 48 minutes ago

Golf's version of the postseason got underway last week with The Barclays - the 1st leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. If you have been following Matt Fargo's weekly picks, you know he has been knocking on the door for a big winner.

That is exactly what happened on Sunday, as Fargo finally broke through and cashed Patrick Reed (+4,000), earning a nice payout for himself and his clients.

Here is what he had to say about Patrick Reed before the week:

"Reed is winless on the season but has been as consistent as they come. He has four top 12 or better finishes in his last five starts and he is tied for No. 9 on the PGA Tour with nine top tens. His accuracy off the tee is a concern at a course like this but he makes up for it being ranked ninth in strokes gained around the green and eighth in scrambling. While putting is not huge here, it can save him in numerous occasions."

Just to prove how sharp this guy is, he also had Emiliano Grillo (+8,00) and Rickie Fowler (+4,000) to win, who finished T2 and T7 respectively.

"Grillo is having a sensational rookie season as he is up to No. 37 in the world thanks to a win to start the wraparound season and consistently making cuts. He has not missed a cut since THE PLAYERS and has four top 14s or better since then. While he really has been in contention, the fact that he is ranked No. 3 in total driving and No 18 in ball striking makes him very dangerous at Black."

"Fowler has had a rough second half of the season even though he has not missed a cut since the U.S. Open, a span of six straight starts. This is a huge value play as catching the No. 8 ranked player in the world at these odds do not come along often. He played well here in 2012 with a T24 that was highlighted by an opening round 67. He is ranked No. 19 in total driving (distance plus accuracy), a big stat for Black."

The victory made it #6 on the season for Fargo, following up a 2015 campaign that saw him cash 11 outright winners.

The Playoffs now head to Boston for the Deutche Bank Championship starting on Friday. Pick up Fargo's PGA FedEx Cup Playoffs Subscription and get every winner through the Tour Championship. BONUS: Includes Ryder Cup Picks!

NCAAF Power Rankings: Week 1 Primer

CE Manager Aug 25, 2016
Blog Image

1. Clemson Tigers -25
- The Tigers came up just short of a national title last season, losing 45-40 to Alabama in the Championship Game. Quarterback Deshaun Watson returns, and he's widely considered to be the nation's top signal caller. After a school record 14 wins in 2015, Clemson looks like a playoff team once again this season.
 
2. Alabama Crimson Tide -24.5
- Alabama loses a lot of talent from last year’s championship team, especially on offense. They need to replace a starting quarterback, but their biggest losses come in the backfield with the departure of Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake. Several defensive stars have also moved on to the NFL, and it remains to be seen if another strong recruiting class can fill all those holes.

3. Oklahoma Sooners -24
- The Sooners are in good shape with Baker Mayfield returning at quarterback, a year after he threw for 3700 yards and 36 TDs. If they can plug a few holes on the offensive line and keep him upright, Oklahoma will be the team to beat in the BIG12.
 
4. Ohio State Buckeyes -23.5
- It was the Buckeyes rivals Michigan that made all the headlines this off-season, but Ohio State returns quarterback J.T. Barrett, and with a strong recruiting class he'll be surrounded by plenty of talent.

5. Florida State Seminoles -22
- The Seminoles will start a freshman at quarterback, but they are stacked on defense and they have a Heisman candidate in the backfield. Their schedule will be a little tougher this year, opening the season against Ole Miss, and facing Louisville and Miami on the road before they play Clemson at home at the end of October.
 
6 Tennessee Volunteers -21.5
- The Vols lost just four games last season, and all four of those games were decided by five points or less. With most of their starters back in 2016, this team appears to be poised to take the next step.

7. Stanford Cardinal -20
- Christian McCaffrey set an NCAA record for all purpose yards last season, and he's one of the favorites to win the Heisman in 2016. Stanford will have a new quarterback, and a tough schedule with road games at Washington, Oregon and Notre Dame will make it difficult to repeat as conference champs.
 
8. Ole Miss Rebels -19.5
- The Rebels are coming off a 10-win season that saw them upset Alabama for the second straight year. They have a stud at quarterback, with Chad Kelly who led the SEC in passing last season, and he threw a conference best 31 TD passes.

9. Michigan Wolverines -19
- While Jim Harbaugh completely turned this program around, going from 5-7 in 2014 to 10-3 last year, many of those wins came against cupcakes. The road to a BIG10 title will be tough, with road games at Iowa, Michigan State and Ohio State.
 
10. LSU Tigers -18.5
- Expectations are high in Baton Rouge, and the pressure will be on Leonard Fournette to carry the load offensively. He got off to a great start last season, putting up huge numbers against some of the weaker teams in the country. He managed just 230 yards and two TDs in losses to Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama. If the Tigers are going to be a true contender, Fournette will have to perform better against elite teams.
 
11. Michigan State Spartans -18
- The Spartans lose their starting quarterback Connor Cook, along with several other key starters on both sides of the ball. The good news is that they have a fifth year senior in Tyler O'Connor stepping up to replace Cook, and their defense looks like it should be solid. Playing the Wolverines and the Buckeyes at East Lansing will help.

12. Notre Dame Irish -17.5
- The Irish won 10 games in 2015, but they were just 2-3 versus ranked teams. Their two wins versus Top 25 teams came against Georgia Tech and Temple, who are both unranked heading into 2016.

13. TCU Horned Frogs -17
- All Kenny Hill did was throw for 511 yards and three TDs in his debut for Texas A&M two seasons ago. Things didn't work out for Hill at College Station, but he'll get another chance here with the Horned Frogs in 2016.

14. Washington Huskies -16.5
- The Huskies are a popular pick to win the Pac-12 this season, returning 17 starters in Chris Peterson's third year as coach. Washington should be a contender this season, but will need to win tough road games at Utah and Oregon.
 
15. Oregon Ducks -16
-  The Ducks won their final six games of the 2015 regular season, including road wins at Washington and Stanford. They have to replace Vernon Adams at quarterback, but they still have plenty of explosive offensive weapons, including Royce Freeman in the backfield.
 
16. Texas A&M Aggies -15.5
- The Aggies have won their first five games in each of the last two seasons, but have fallen apart against the top teams in the conference in October and November. The defense that allowed 21.6 points per game in 2015 should be even better with Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall looking to improve on last season’s total of 19/5 sacks combined.

17. UCLA Bruins -15
- The Bruins return 12 starters including sophomore quarterback Josh Rosen. Expectations are high, but they'll have to do better against the run. In a 56-35 loss to Stanford last year, Christian McCaffrey ran for 243 yards and four TDs.

18. Iowa Hawkeyes -14.5
- The Hawkeyes benefited from a soft schedule in 2015, running the table until a 16-13 loss to the Spartans in the BIG10 Championship Game. They'll have a chance to do the same thing this year, with their toughest games coming at home to Michigan and Wisconsin.

19. North Carolina Tar Heels -14
- The Tar Heels led the nation last season in yards per play (7.28). Despite bringing in a new quarterback, Larry Fedora still has plenty of weapons, including one of the top running backs in the country (Elija Hood).

20. Houston Cougars -13.5
- The Cougars won 13 games last season, and they edged out Florida State in the Peach Bowl 38-24. This year's schedule will be a lot tougher though, beginning with a neutral site game versus Oklahoma in Week 1.
 
21. Georgia Bulldogs -13
- The Bulldogs come into the 2016 season with a new coach, as Kirby Smart replaces Mark Richt after a disappointing 2015 season. Star running back Nick Chubb is back and expected to be 100% after a horrific knee injury he suffered halfway through last year.

22. Louisville Cardinals -12.5
- The Cardinals return 16 starters from last year's team that won six of it's final seven games. A favorable schedule could be enough to open the door for Louisville to emerge as a contender in the ACC.

23. USC Trojans -12
- The Trojans open the season with a tough game against defending champions Alabama, and new head coach Todd Helton has his work cut out for him as he attempts to navigate a difficult schedule with an inexperienced quarterback.
 
24. Utah Utes -11.5
- They say defense wins championships, and the Utes might just have the best defense in the Pac-12.

25. Oklahoma State Cowboys -11
- The Cowboys won 10 games last year with a relatively young team, and they return 16 starters in 2016. This team has all the pieces in place, but ultimately a tough schedule could prevent them from challenging the likes of Oklahoma and TCU in the Big12.
