Spot on the All Night Appetite with Scotty

on SEN 1116 in Melbourne, Australia

Definitely the longest I have been on radio consecutively without a break, I hope the guys were able to get all the ads in. Feel like I covered just about everything aside from Major League Baseball which is right now in its home stretch (except for the New York Mets signing Tim Tebow to a minor league contract !?!). I started with NFL and last night’s opener and few picks for Sunday. I then moved on to the Tebow signing, then Ryan Lochte’s suspension for being an idiot in Rio followed by some U.S. Open tennis. We discussed the business end of the PGA tour season as the FedEx Cup is up for grabs. Then we had a surprisingly a pretty comprehensive discussion on the 2016-17 NBA season. Then I was totally shocked when ice hockey became the topic of discussion, both the NHL and the upcoming World Cup of Hockey. Then my favorite part of any show answering some SMS questions which were expectedly about the NFL. I thoroughly enjoyed that, just wish we had more time!

Spot on the All Night Appetite with Scotty

on SEN 1116 in Melbourne, Australia

Start off with a quick recap of Euro 2016 then a question on UFC 200 that I was able to somewhat answer. We then talked a little golf both Olympic and the British Open. Then on the NBA Summer League and Thon Maker and Ben Simmons performances. We continue to chat NBA and the major free agency moves and Tim Duncan retiring. Finally a recap of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the Home Run Derby.

Starts at the 36:30 mark!

Picks for the British Open

Again sorry for the very late post, but there is still time this evening to get a bet on before they tee off just after midnight here in the East.
All odds are from the Betfair Exchange.

Rory McIlroy (11.5-1): I picked him in the first two majors of the season and I will stick with him. He is holding up very well in his 3 matchups against the other members of the current Big 4 (D. Johnson, Day and Spieth). Wind doesn’t look to be a big factor and the winner should go very low which both fit McIlroy’s pattern for Major victories. These aren’t the best odds, but of the top 4 favorites, McIlroy is my pick.

Here are a few smokies that could definitely factor and are very useful in pools.

Andy Sullivan (94-1):
Scott Piercy (109-1)
Nicolas Colsaerts (169-1)

Picks for the 2016 US Open

Here are four golfers that I would pick to win the U.S. Open and/or use in office pools.
(Betfair odds listed)

Rory McIlroy (8.2-1): He was my pick in the Masters and I will stick with him for the second major of the year. He has been playing excellent golf and he is also being supported in the head-to-head markets. It does seem a bit short with such a big field and a difficult course, if you want bang for your buck the next three golfers are more your speed.

Matt Kuchar (43-1): Seemingly every time I at the PGA leaderboards this spring, Kuchar is in the mix. I think he will play well in what should be very difficult conditions at Oakmont Country Club.

Paul Casey (89-1): He is getting backed in his one matchup and buzz around him is very good.

Brendan Steele (229-1): He is getting bet down on Betfair and has support in the head-to-head markets.

Sorry so brief, this tournament snuck up on me!

Start with the NBA Finals as the Golden State Warriors win game one. Then on to the NHL Finals as the Pittsburgh Penguins have held serve up 2-0 after a pair of home wins. I pick Serena Williams to be upset in the French Open finals, but on the Men’s side I expect Novak Djovokic to complete the career Grand Slam. I also update The Memorial Tournament on the PGA Tour and Jason Day’s solid start.

Starts at the 18:15 mark!

Jam packed show with both a Men’s and Women’s College Basketball Championship recap. I discuss the night in the NBA and the shocking overtime loss the Golden State Warriors suffered at home to the Minnesota Timberwolves. I pick a few of tonight’s NBA games at the 31:20 mark. I give a quick update on the NHL as the regular season is nearing its end. Major League Baseball had their Opening Day(s) as the long season gets underway. Lastly I talk some golf and pick Rory McIlroy over Phil Mickelson in the Masters.

Starts at the 23 minute mark.
