It’s a week of new beginnings at Wise Kracks sports betting podcast. You may notice things look a little different on the show – Jon and I are officially doing the podcast in the studio together! With isolation mandates over in Las Vegas, Wise Kracks is now being filmed out of Sticky Paws Studios. Now I can laugh at Jon’s “bet the house” picks in person.
Paul vs Mayweather, Rays vs Yankees, and NBA Playoffs
The Logan Paul winning line on the Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather fight has shifted dramatically in the last thirty-six hours. This seems to indicate that a Logan Paul win is more likely than you’d think. Betting on a draw is also very enticing for this fight. One thing is certain: This Sunday night fight is bound to be a spectacle!
The Tampa Bay Rays were on a five-game winning streak before being defeated by the New York Yankees last night. The Yankees themselves had lost four in a row before last night’s win. They’ve got two more games against the Rays, so this may be a turning point for them. There’s plenty of action left in the MLB season.
With early results coming in for the NBA playoffs, future bets on the NBA Champion are here. The Brooklyn Nets are still looking good and there is plenty of money being placed on them as the winner. Their series with the Milwaukee Bucks will likely determine who we are going to see in the finals.
Special Guest Jim Duquette Talks Baseball Analytics
