The 2023 Australian Open odds are set for the men's and women's finals, with No. 4 Novak Djokovic a monster favorite against No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas, and No. 5 Aryna Sabalenka a slim favorite vs. No. 22 Elena Rybakina.
Super Bowl 57 hasn't even been played — heck we don't even know who is playing yet — but Super Bowl 58 odds are now on the board, led by Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, Jalen Hurts... and Brock Purdy?!?
The Giants' star RB hasn't had a massive workload down the stretch of the season but now faces an Eagles team that is weak in terms of defending the run. Our free NFL picks expect Philly to see a healthy dose of Saquon on Saturday.

Figures recently reported by the Illinois Gaming Board show the state’s retail and online sports betting sites handled $1.03 billion in wagers during November — the second straight month Illinois has broken the billion-dollar mark in a single month.
Justin Herbert has been ultra-efficient and racking up completions all season long — and our free NFL picks for the Chargers vs. Jaguars like him to pick apart the Jacksonville defense on prime time Saturday night.
Keeping on top of player opt-outs during college football bowl season can be a daunting task. Fortunately we're here to help with the latest opt-outs and odds for all 42 games.
Jacksonville's stud QB torched the Titans four weeks ago on the road. Now, in Week 18, at home, with a playoff spot (!!!) on the line — plus a chance to make some extra cash for his top targets — our free NFL picks expect TLaw to toast Tennessee yet again.
CeeDee Lamb has established himself as No. 1 WR in Dallas, and one of the premier wideouts in the entire NFL. Yet he has modest prop totals against a miserable (and banged up) Titans secondary — so we're hammering the play button on CeeDee for TNF.
We don't expect Lawrence to post his fourth 300+ yard game in five weeks vs. the Jets on TNF... but we do think his passing — and rushing — prop totals are way too low.
