We took last week off from this column, but I spent most of my staycation in the Tuley’s Takes home office catching up on sports besides football.
In case you missed our early takes on next year’s Super Bowl, I advised followers to bet the Colts at 30-1 ASAP if they thought Indianapolis would sign Carson Wentz. I got 35-1 at Circa Sports here in Las Vegas before the trade with the Eagles was announced. The Colts are now down to 25-1 at a lot of books and even 22-1 at Circa. (No, I didn’t bet that much, so hopefully that means some of you did get in early.)
So this week let’s run through the rest of the major sports.
Tuley’s Takes on CBB
Before I get to my dark-horse pick for the NCAA tournament, I’d like to disclose that one of my gambling partners, Seth Shankle, talked me into joining the “Baylor or Gonzaga win the men’s basketball championship — Yes or No” prop at William Hill. Yes, it’s the squarest, chalkiest way to bet the Big Dance, but we believe we got the best price on “Yes” at + 120.
