⚽ World Cup 2022: Switzerland

There are two things I love in this world: skiing and chocolate. Maybe it's no surprise then that Switzerland to win the World Cup has caught my eye. Let's be real, though. Are the Swiss going to raise the trophy at the end? No. But at just .80 per contract, they do figure to get out of Group G as the second place team (provided they can get by Serbia). In order for this trade to return any sort of meaningful amount, you're hoping for a Round of 16 upset against Uruguay, but crazier things have happened. At this low price point, you can afford to throw the dart.


One Last Round: RSM Classic, St. Simons Island, Georgia

It’s the final official tournament of the PGA season that features a slim field, making a prediction an absolute dart throw. Tony Finau won a week ago after a dominant -16 performance and was the favorite coming into this weekend, but withdrew. His $10 contract price has been redistributed, leaving Brian Harman the favorite at $4.5 per contract. This tournament has been drenched in drama with 4 of the last 6 iterations being decided in playoff holes, so your guess is as good as mine. Fortunately, we had Sporttrade Golf Expert Amanda Rose on Market Movers to break it down for us (including her picks!). Market Movers: Tuesday, November 15, 2022
