The bunkered Bet

Jessica Korda (35/1): Her preparation may have been overshadowed by her sister Nelly’s return to action, but Jessica Korda is quietly looking an excellent bet. She finished second at the Chevron Championship, and this could finally be her moment to break her major duck.

Always gamble responsibly.
