Rounding out the Roundup . . .

The PGA Tour returns to the United States on Thursday for the opening round of the Buick Open at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc, Michigan.

The Eskimos sit in a three-way tie atop the CFL's West Division with a 2-2 mark through their first four games - although they're only 1-3 ATS on the year. The oddsmakers have Thursday's total pegged at 54.5 points.

Finally, the WNBA offers up four games on Thursday, with San Antonio at Sacramento, Connecticut at Indiana, Washington at New York, and Phoenix at Atlanta.
