Ten years ago, Rory McIlroys father, Gerry, placed a 500-to-1 bet that his 15-year-old son would win the British Open before the age of 26. On Sunday, Gerry McIlroys faith in his son paid off – literally – as Rory won the Claret Jug and he cashed in to the tune of $171,000. With many unknowns - his son being an amateur golfer and just 15 - the bet made by Gerry McIlroy required mostly blind faith in Rorys talent and potential. If you could take the same risk, with relatively similar unknowns, what bet would you make? One could follow McIlroys example and place a bet once again on Rorys success. With his British Open win, Rory has three major titles; a U.S. Open win, a PGA Championship and, now, a British Open title. McIlroy is 11 major wins away from Tiger Woods totla of 14. However, Woods last major win came in 2008, when he was 34-years-old. Would you bet on McIlroy to surpass Woods in the next 10 years? Or how about putting some money on a Canadian team winning it all? Since 1993, hockey fans in Canada have been waiting to see a Canadian team hoist the Stanley Cup. The Vancouver Canucks came close to the feat in 2011, but lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. The future for many of Canadas teams seems bright. The Montreal Canadiens advanced to the Eastern Conference Final last season and seem primed for another run in 2014-15 and the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers look to have strong 10-year outlooks based on the young talent on their rosters. Would you bet on any one of Canadas seven teams winning the Cup within the next 10 years? Speaking of Montreal, its been 10 years since the Expos left town. The prospect of bringing baseball back to Montreal is an oft-talked about concept throughout Canada, though nothing is close to imminent. No stadium is in the works, or team up for sale, yet there is a small possibility a Montreal-based team could take to bat within the next 10 years. Earlier this month, commissioner Bud Selig said Montreal was an "excellent candidate in the future." A long-shot bet, but one many Montrealers may gladly take as they continue to wait and hope for the return of the game. Like baseball in Montreal, the debate of bringing NFL football to Toronto seems to always be on the minds of Torontonians. Yet, with the passing of Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, the topic has received more attention than ever before. With a Toronto-based group reportedly led by rock star Jon Bon Jovi interested in purchasing the Bills, the city seems to have more hope than ever before. However, the Bills cannot leave Western New York until at least 2020 without incurring a $400 million penalty. Theres also no guarantee Bon Jovis group would move the team north of the border. Certainly many questions and unknowns surround the situation, but would you take the bet that four-down football will be played in Toronto within 10 years, or are the citys hopes simply livin on a prayer? Hailing from north of Toronto, Andrew Wiggins appears poised for a strong NBA career. The 19-year-old was selected first overall in this years NBA Draft and has been touted as the leagues "next great player." If he lives up to the hype, Wiggins should join the NBAs elite and join the select company of players to win the leagues most valuable player award. Would you bet that Wiggins will live up to the hype and secure an MVP trophy within his first 10 NBA seasons? Another rising Canadian star that may be worth betting on is Eugenie Bouchard. The 20-year-old from Westmount, Quebec is coming off her first final at a major and has reached the semifinal round at all three majors in 2014. Bouchard currently sits seventh in the world rankings and appears to be ready to rise even further. Could Bouchard win each major tournament and complete a career Grand Slam by the age of 30? Her recent trend of success suggests that bet might be worth taking. Given the chance to make a bet looking 10 years into the future, do you think you would cash in on any of the above? Maybe you have your own intriguing long-shot wager that could have you laughing all the way to the bank. As always, its Your! Call. Cameron Lynch Jersey .

A little more than one year after missing a last-second tip-in that would have given the Wolverines a share of the Big Ten regular-season title, the 6-foot-8 forward scored on a layup with 7.PHOENIX -- Against Arizona, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the dominant team they are supposed to be. Against everyone else, not so much. Zack Greinke threw eight sharp innings, Yasiel Puig and Scott Van Slyke homered and the Dodgers added to their mastery of the Diamondbacks with a 7-0 victory on Friday night. Los Angeles improved to 8-1 against Arizona this season, and the Dodgers are 15-19 against everybody else. "They have outplayed us, outpitched us," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "The guy that beat us tonight has his best stuff going this year." Dodgers manager Don Mattingly downplayed the dominance. "Theres teams you hit well as a player, you pitch good against," he said. "This is one of those teams we played well against this year. Hopefully that continues." Greinke (7-1), in his longest outing of the season, allowed two or fewer runs for the 21st consecutive game, the longest such streak in the majors since at least 1914. Asked how much he thinks about that he said, "not much, actually" "Its not like one of the more important streaks," Greinke said. "Its not a real big deal." He gave up five hits, struck out six, walked two and had an RBI double. "I forgot how fun it is to catch him," said A.J. Ellis, just back from the disabled list. Puig had three hits and drove in two runs. He and Van Slyke hit solo homers off Wade Miley (3-4) as the Diamondbacks fell to 4-16 at Chase Field. Van Slyke does to Miley what the Dodgers do to the Diamondbacks. He is 7 for 16 in his career against the left-hander with four home runs, three this year. Puig, who fell a triple shy of the cycle, extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games. "Im trying to get hits and put a swing on good pitches," Puig said to reporters in Spanish. "I wasnt worried hitting for the cycle or anything like that." Mattingly said Puig "is getting better all the time and hes getting closer to being that player that has a chance to make a huge impact.dddddddddddd." Brian Wilson, who entered the game with a 10.22 ERA, pitched the ninth to complete the shutout. The Diamondbacks have not led in any of their six home games against Los Angeles, two of them in Sydney, Australia, to open the season. Miley gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings, with three walks and three strikeouts. Puig got the Dodgers going with a drive into the right-field seats on a 2-2 pitch from Miley with one out in third. It was his eighth home run of the season. The bottom of the Los Angeles order accounted for two runs in the fourth. Van Slyke led off with a double, then scored on Ellis single. Greinke followed with an RBI double to the gap in left-centre. They were the first RBIs of the season for Ellis and Greinke. Van Slyke hit Mileys first pitch in the sixth high off the batters eye in centre field, far above the 407-foot sign and it was 4-0. Los Angeles got two runs off reliever Randall Delgado in the seventh. Puig singled and scored when Hanley Ramirez doubled. Matt Kemp brought Ramirez home with a fielders choice. The Dodgers added an unearned run in the eighth when shortstop Chris Owings, trying to nab speedy Dee Gordon for a double play, threw the ball 10 rows into the seats above the Los Angeles dugout. Gordon scored from first on Puigs double. In the ninth, umpire Quinn Wolcott ruled that Miguel Montero had beaten out an infield hit but the Dodgers challenged and the call was reversed on review. NOTES: The Dodgers have won 15 of the last 19 games against the Diamondbacks. ... Puig has 33 RBIs. ... Miley has allowed 10 home runs, most of any Arizona starter. ... The Diamondbacks Paul Goldschmidt struck out three times. ... Arizonas 17-year-old minor league pitcher Argeny Hiciano has been suspended for 50 games for testing positive for a banned substance. ... The Dodgers send LHP Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 1.74 ERA) to the mound Saturday, while Arizonas Chase Anderson (1-0, 1.69) makes his second major league start, first at home.
