If you’ve played Bassmaster Fantasy Fishing even a little bit, you know how hard it is to predict the order of finish for a professional bass tournament. A simple thing like wind direction or a 2- or 3-degree change in water temperature could be the difference between an angler finishing near the bottom of the standings or near the top. So don’t feel guilty if you scroll through our annual Classic odds gallery and think to yourself, “Those people don’t know what they’re talking about.” There’s a good chance you’re right. But with the biggest Classic in history just a week away, it sure is fun to speculate.
