Listen, we can talk if you need to. Some of these wagers are at a "hey Hawaii and Fresno State are playing a football game at 3 AM Eastern" degenerative level.

Some of them, though, might be smart money.

Let's take a look at the numbers Bovada is putting out there right now on the 2014 Masters.

Will There be a Hole In One at the 2014 US Masters?

Yes: -130
No: EVEN

There have been fewer than 30 holes-in-one ever at the Masters so wager at your own risk. I'd bet on no.

Will There be an Albatross at the 2014 US Masters?

Yes: 12-1

Only four ever, not happening. Don't bet it.

Will There be a Play-Off at the 2014 US Masters?

Yes: 5-2

There have been three in the last five years so this wouldn't be a terrible wager.

Will There be a Left Handed Winner at the 2014 US Masters?

Yes: 10-1

Smart money says no but with Phil Mickelsona and Bubba Watson involved, anything (literally, anything) can happen.

Will There be a New Course Record at the 2014 US Masters?

62 or lower: 8-1

No.

Rory McIlroy 1st Hole Score at the 2014 US Masters?

Par: 4-9
Birdie or better 7-2
Bogey or worse 4-1

Last year McIlroy had one bogey and three pars.

Adam Scott 1st Hole Score at the 2014 US Masters?

Par: 4-9
Birdie or better: 7-2
Bogey or worse: 4-1

Last year Scott had a bogey, a birdie, and two pars. Good luck!

Phil Mickelson 1st Hole Score at the 2014 US Masters?

Par: 4-9
Birdie or better: 7-2
Bogey or worse: 4-1

Last year Mickelson had one bogey and three pars.
