With the 2014 NFL Spring training camps underway, there has been an enormous amount of media coverage on Johnny "Football" Manziel, who has been so highly touted from college through the NFL Draft and his eventual selection by the Cleveland Browns. Now he is touted as the potential starting QB for Cleveland.
The absence of Tiger Woods is reflected not only on TV ratings but also in online sportsbook odds. That’s why the news that Tiger is taking full swings at Medalist Golf Club -broken by Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte and confirmed by Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg- has been enough to automatically turn the 14-time champion into the odds-on favorite to win the 2014 British Open, which starts in one month at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Merseyside England.
The 2014 NBA post-season just ended a couple of days ago, but online sportsbook websites have already figured the odds for the favorites to win the 2015 Championship. Not unsurprisingly both the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs are right at the top. What may be surprising though is that the Heat has better odds than the Spurs. The only thing that may conspire against San Antonio’s chances is the fact although Tim Duncan has won five NBA rings, he’s never won two consecutive championships. Duncan’s no longer essential for that to happen ; in fact he has become to Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard what the Admiral David Robinson once was to him. However, if his mere presence in the team is somehow enough to take the Spurs out of the title hunt, then Miami would certainly become odds on favorites.
