I chipped in more coverage again this week in my article at Forbes, where I interviewed DraftKings sportsbook director Johnny Avello, a former longtime race and sports director at the Wynn Las Vegas and Bally’s.

“The golf handle has been phenomenal,” Avello told me as the golf betting boom continues at the 2020 Travelers Championship with a star-studded field.

Plenty of stats to evaluate and you try to stick it close to the pin in your pursuit of more profit and green. Golfers that are accurate with their short irons will have the best chance to make more putts this week.

Check back prior to the tournament for Fairways Forecast with golf picks and match-ups of interest.
