Weekly Market Watch: Trading Texas

🚨 Biggest Game of the Week: 4 TCU @ 18 Texas Saturday November 12th, 7:30 pm ET 

The Horned Frogs were robbed of a spot in the College Football Playoff in its initial rankings, but the committee and the betting markets seem aligned on the Horned Frogs. They’re slow starters and their good looking BIG 12 wins have lost a bit of their shine as the season progresses. But consider this; TCU has outscored opponents 180-102 in the second half and 104-48 in the fourth quarter. At just $29.5 per contract on the road, it seems like a decent spot to ground out some profit regardless of a TCU win or loss. 


🔮 Stanley Cup Champion: LV Golden Knights

If the Colorado Avalanche are the Burberry of the Stanley Cup Futures market ($16/contract), consider Vegas your neighborhood TJ Maxx. You may be able to afford a cashmere scarf, but why not buy 10 of them for 35% the price? The Golden Knights are 11-2 in the early season and are trading at just $6.5 per contract, good enough for 8th highest in the market. They don’t see The Avs again until January and benefit from a Pacific Division that’s (ahem) not very good. Keep padding that record, fellas. 


⛳ Are the profits bigger in Texas too? Cadence Bank Houston Open

Let’s stay in Texas where you can golf year round. The Cadence Bank Houston Open offers some serious value plays on golfers who have kept their mid-season shape well into the fall. Sam Burns, Aaron Wise, Joel Dahmen, Mackenzie Hughes and Sahith Theegala are all trading at $5.5 per contract or less heading into play Thursday with a chance to stay a top the leaderboard in a thin field. Wise has gone T15, T13, T64, 6th and T15 his last 5 times out and has competed well at Memorial Park before. All these guys have to do is hang around and you can see some profit!
