Once again, the PGA Tour features the most exciting event. The Travelers Championship gets started on Thursday morning from the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.

According to FanDuel Sportsbook, Barça is the favorite to win, but not by that much actually. The online book lists it at -155 to come out victorious, with Celta Vigo at +430.
Like with nearly every soccer match, FanDuel has props for the match’s goal scorers. You can take Lionel Messi to score the game’s first goal with odds of +145, while Messi scoring the final goal is +240.
If he scores two or more goals, you could cash in on odds of +340. Martin Braithwaite has the second-best odds to score multiple times, with odds of +500.
A Barcelona win will put the pressure on Real Madrid on Sunday.
Madrid enters this contest as slightly bigger favorites than its rivals. It has odds of -240, whereas Espanyol is at +600. You’re able to wager on there being a draw at +380, too.

- 1 or more -1150
