The Outlook

I don’t know if Bellerive is the perfect place to bet on Simpson, but DraftKings is almost forcing our hand with his ridiculous $7,700 price tag. He’s way more talented than that, and he’s shown he can hang with the big boys, lapping the field at the Players in May. It’s rare to get that much win equity in the $7k range, so regardless of course fit, he’s in play.
