British Open 2019 Top Picks – Bag a winner from Royal Portrush

Here at Sportsbook Select we are taking 5 value bets with Pointsbet USA

Rafa is playing exception golf at present, having nearly won The Irish Open earlier this month before Jon Rahm powered home to victory with a final-round 62 and finishing in 9th in last weeks  Scottish Open. His career best major finish came in the British Open in 2017 (Tied 4th)  and given recent form, we think he’ll be a factor come Sunday at Royal Portrush.

The former World No. 1 seems to be getting back to his best now that he has Steve Williams on the bag, with the pair already seeing results. After a T- 21 finish at the US.Open in their debut pairing, Day finished T-8 at the Travelers Champ and we feel he has a big weekend ahead of him at The British Open.

The most under-stated & under-rated world class golfer in modern golf, Xander Schauffele continues to knock at the door of the top table. The British Open Championship might just be HIS Major and Royal Portrush might just be his place! Uncharacteristically for a Californian, he’s a great links golfer, as he proved when finishing second at Carnoustie last year. He also has two top five finishes in Majors in 2019. Patience will be tested at Portrush, a golf course which few in the 156-field know well, but Schauffle has more patience than most.

Rory McIlroy will hoover up most of the local support, but on the off-chance he doesn’t meet home expectations, Lowry will be more than happy to stand-in and carry the mantle! Funninly enough for a player who has an affinity for links golf, his record in the Open Championship has been terrible, having missed the last four cuts!  However, on the upside, he is in decent form and knows the Portrush course better than almost everyone else in the field. He most certainly has the talent and imagination to answer every question the course will ask. But what of the greens themselves? Lowry is a streaky putter. If he’s off this week then look elsewhere. But if he’s on,  He Is ON! So @7000 then why not?!

Pepperell is a modern day social golfer (check out his twitter!……But more he is also a brilliant old-school kind of golfer – a sensational ball-striker whose guileis perfectly suited to the Open Championship.

He probably doesn’t drive the ball well enough to win around a brute of a course like Portrush – but @8000 he’s certainly worth a punt!!


Thats it from us folks….. enjoy the spectacle which is The Open and here’s to some of these big punts come good on Sunday!

Will Boston get Bucked?

Tonight, marks Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals series between the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks. While Milwaukee has a commanding 3-1 series lead, people are wondering, is there any hope left for the Celtics? The Boston Celtics are a team that is built on incredible individual talent, and when the team is clicking, they are one of the strongest teams in the NBA. Between Tatum, Brown, Irving, Hayward, Horford, Morris, and the list goes on even deeper into the Boston bench, you find absolute talent everywhere you turn. Yet, time and time again during this season, we have seen the Boston Celtics struggle to overcome even the slightest bit of adversity. And Game 5, on the road, facing elimination, against one of the best teams in basketball; will easily be the most adversity that this team will face all year.

Milwaukee on the other hand has everything in their favor going into tonight’s matchup. Starting with Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has been unstoppable since their Game 1 lose at home. Since then he is averaging over 33 points, 13 rebounds, and 5 assists, and it seems like Boston simply does not have an answer for him. On top of that, the Bucks have been powered by the consistent play of Middleton, Bledsoe, Connaughton, Lopez, Mirotic, and even Hill, as they have all have answered the call during these 2019 playoffs. Back to why we’ve all came here, where are we putting our money tonight? With the game being held in Milwaukee, the Bucks showing no signs of slowing down, and considering all of the leadership struggles that the Celtics have endured this year, it seems that the Celtics have reached the end of their 2019 run. While the 8.5 point spread seems like a lot for a team to cover in an elimination playoff game, we have to remember that the Bucks have won the past 3 games against Boston by an average of 13.3 points. Tonight, we are taking the (Milwaukee Bucks -8.5), simply knowing that as soon as the Bucks get a decent lead, there will be no looking back. Take the DraftKings matched deposit bonus and you can bet this for free.

Who wins the East?

With New York, Cleveland and Phoenix looking towards the franchise altering consequences of the NBA lottery we thought we would do the crazy thing and focus on the other most exciting thing to happen in May in the NBA, the Playoffs.

Toronto and Philly are locked at 2-2 with game 5 in Toronto and if required Game 7 as well. If you think the 76ers can get 2 of the next 3 games then the +650 on them to win the East has got to be attractive. With the Celtics trailing by 2-1 with the next game at home the market isn’t giving them much of a chance of an upset in the series despite being -120 for Game 4. If they do win game 4 then the series will become more tense and the +1300 on the Celtics to win the East will shrink. Now is the time to take a position and Game 4 can be a bit of a free roll. Game 4 is do or die for the Celtics but if you like the Bucks then value is on your side (+102 at a point in the series where the Bucks may have them worked out is value).

I am happy to be with Embid and the 76ers to get over the Raptors. Simmons will need to do more to reduce Kawhi’s influence and if Embid is healthy I think the 76ers can win game 5 and 6 and from there I think they can get over the Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals.

If you are yet to take up our offer jump onto and enter the Promo code SBSBONUS and get a free $50 bet to get you started (Take the +650 on the 76ers to win the East).

Picks against the spread

 Spread Points   Result
Brooklyn Over
+8.0 225.5


  • Brooklyn’s guards were just too strong in Game 1, with D’Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie combining to hit 67 points on way to a 111-102 victory and seizing home advantage.
  • Philly saw Butler shot 36 points while Embiid added 22 and 15 rebounds on his return from an knee issue but they were woeful from behind the arc converting only 3-of-25 !!
  • B Simmons got booed at the foul line from the 76er fans and astonishingly the 76ers bench were caught texting while down double digits. It’s a bit of a mess in Philadelphia, and although the talent undoubtedly is deeper in Philly, the young team may find it hard to cope with the pressure should their home crowd turn on them again.
  • Nets are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games.
  • Nets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a home winning % over .600.

Sportsbook Selects PICK  = Brooklyn +8.0 which is currently -105 with POINTSBET USA

Barstool Sports just gave an offshore illegal bookie a social media lesson

Dave Portnoy, the Barstool President wanted to make a big bet on the NCAA Championship game on Monday. It was a big bet. 250k big. He bet Texas tech and the game went to over time and unfortunately for the “El Presidente” Texas Tech lost. Dave was in Minnesota and as such couldn’t bet with Pointsbet or FanDuel and as such he wasn’t able to get his bet on. My bookie called him out on Twitter as a fraud.

Dave Portnoy has done extremely well. He has 850K followers on Twitter, his company BarStool Sports has been known to have more interactions on social media than Media giants such as ESPN. BarStool Sports has 1.5 Million followers on Twitter, 6.7 Million on Instagram and 2.8 million on Facebook. Barstool Sports have an engaged social audience and its massive. A 2017 comparison between ESPN and Barstool Sports is below.

With Papsa being overturned by the Supreme Court almost a year ago and the arrival of legal online Sportsbooks in New Jersey and about to arrive in many other states US bettors are about to be able to be legally without having to jump through a million hoops. Yes customers will pay tax but they will have recourse through government departments such as New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement.
