Shane

Well, we've reached a milestone we've reached a milestone.

Mark

That's right. And that milestone is the opening still doesn't get old.

Shane

No, it's not a milestone.

Mark

What's the what's the milestone?

Shane

The Milestone 10th episode. How about that?

Mark

That's fantastic.

Shane

Yeah, another episode. Another Yeah. Another episode in the books. Another milestone is we got somebody live in the in the studio with you. And it's not me.

Mark

That's right. Yeah, we're kind of we're kind of all over the place today. So we have a special guest. And yeah, and we have you remotely.

Shane

That's right. Triple P in the house.

Mark

Triple P.

Preston

Here I am. Thanks, guys for having me.

Mark

What's Triple P stands for?

Shane

Preston Parlay Printup.

Preston

That's me.

Shane

How about that? We got we figured everything out. We got a pointspread guy. We got a money line guy. Now we got a parlay guy.

Preston

Parlay Professional so to speak.

Shane

professionnel. As you can tell, he's still working.

Preston

So that's right.

Mark

If they listen to our picks they all are.

Shane

Yeah, that's right. So we got some good news to you another milestone. So this is the day a milestone, you know, new person to the show 10 episodes, and the books are about to be in the books. And we also have something going on that we can finally discuss. But first mark. First thing into the mobile app. So yes, not only can you bet in the Arkansas mobile app now, but right across the river. In Tennessee, we are live and ready to roll with the Betly app.

Mark

That's right. It's up and running. You know what else?

Shane

Yeah, tell us what you can do now.

Mark

So something that's fantastic. If you live especially close to Southland and you want to take a huge advantage of it, we have that $250 risk free bet that you've heard 10 times now on this show, make a minimum $10 bet and the odds must be minus 250 or greater. If you meet all the minimum requirements, you will win one unlocked free bet equal to the amount of your first wager up to $250. If your wager is a loser, however, you can play that here in Arkansas, on the Arkansas app. Slide on over to Tennessee or vice versa, and go the sign up on the Tennessee app and play the same thing. Just because you play the 250 in one state does not make you ineligible for the other state. So you can play it twice.

Shane

So what had happened is you could get $500 in risk free bet by just popping a state line.

Mark

That's right. And here the state lines, five minutes.

Preston

Not very far away.

Shane

What is Preston is still there? I figured be in his car rolling over there right now.

Mark

No, he's still here. He's checking out. He's checking out the crowd that's forming in front of us as they watch us live.

Shane

Well, that's great. So now for all your folks listening in Tennessee. The Tennessee specific app is there. You can get it in both the Google and the apple Play stores. Right? Google Play Apple Stores, whatever. And now you can have both apps on your phone now, at least right now from my understanding. It's not a shared wallet as of yet, but they're working on it. So you'll have essentially set up two different accounts, wagering accounts one for each state, but other than that you can take care of or take care take advantage of the promotions in each state. And then it don't even matter where you are on a football Saturday or Sunday. Let's say you're over there in Tennessee grabbing a bite to eat somewhere and you're like oh, I would love to get a bet in on this game well now you can with the Betly Tennessee App. And then maybe you're in Arkansas for some reason your huntin' and you're like oh crap, I need to make a bet on this game. You can pull up the the Arkansas app.

Mark

Sweetness convenience at its finest.

Shane

It's amazing. 2022 a banner year for everything.

Mark

Whoo and more things are to come for the for the podcast as well. So more banner things happen.

Shane

Yes, we'll save that hopefully for next because it's a shocker.

Mark

Shocker.

Shane

You don't want to Well, yeah, you know, they've never seen our face before.

Mark

Oh yeah, well, they'll enjoy we'll give them some material.

Shane

Well, let's give you a hint on what that might let me give you a hint on what that might look like. As it is now time for our annual annual every, every episode what do they call that? By the way Preston? If it happens every episode, every time what would they call that?

Mark

Our addition to our selection every time I listen.

Shane

It is time for the sweet treats and a bad beats segment.

Betly

It is now time for money line mark to dig deeper into it rains literally the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Give you the sweet sweet treats. Bing Bing Bing, what do we have for Johnny? And bad beats. didn't pan out, in the world sports betting.

Shane

Mark, give it to us like we do every week. What's our sweet treat that beat?

Mark

Every week. So the sweet treat I got something special for you this time. We had a guest here on site. Make a $15. Round Robin fives bet. Round Robin fives. All right. On the seven. He picked seven teams. And these games played on August last Saturday, August 13th. You ready? You get this pencil ready?

Shane

All right. Go ahead write it down.

Mark

All right, so we got the bears point spread at plus two, and that the odds were at minus 110. The dolphins pointspread A plus one. And the odds are at minus 110. The Rams pointspread A plus three. And the odds are at minus 105. Steelers pointspread at minus two and the odds are at minus 110. Panthers pointspread. A plus two and a half at minus 110. Broncos points spread minus four and a half at minus 110. And a Texans point spread at minus two at minus 110.That was a lot.

Preston

That's a whole lot of a whole preseason football.

Shane

I am just shocked that I saw Texas minus two in that mess. I didn't think it was possible that could be favored in preseason football.

Mark

Those are all favorites. All minus according to the odds they are favorites. Of course with the pluses. They're not.

Shane

Well, yeah, so let me ask this question. So in this round robin, you say there's seven teams but they played the five aspect of it. Did only five of these winner did all seven of these win.

Mark

Oh, that's that's one because of a glitch. I'm glad you caught all seven won. So what do you think get paid? It's guessing time. Bing Bing Bing.

Shane

This could be a natural Showcase Showdown. They're just depressed and doesn't know that the amount.

Mark

He tried. He tried and I didn't let him.

Shane

All right. So Preston, think about this to the nearest without going over here. Oh, my goodness. How many different combinations of five can be in this mess?

Mark

I didn't do the math on that.

Shane

I'm gonna say 4650.

Mark

4650 says pointspread Shane.

Preston

Well, this is Showcase Showdown. I think I'm gonna get $1 I'm gonna say 2800.

Mark

You're both you're both low. Both Low. Yeah, yes. You're You're halfway there. So the total was-

Shane

thing was almost 10 grand.

Mark

$8,007.04 pennies.

Shane

$8,007.04 pennies. Well, I won showcase

Preston

You won the showcase. That lucky winner got a whole lot of money off that preseason. I was not expecting that.

Shane

I was not. It's one for every five right?

Mark

Yeah, that's it.

Shane

One Show me the money. Well, that's interesting, because we talked about the round robins before and how to play em. Similar to boxing, either horses or dogs in you know, if you're wagering, that kind of thing. The round robins are really good. If you have a slate of teams and you're trying to play all the three four five team combinations. Now. It would have been interesting all seven would have won at $15. I wonder what that would have paid if you just played one straight $15 parlay?

Mark

Yeah, I don't know. That's a good question.

Shane

That would have been interesting to see you have a little calculator I guess you could use at the time, right? So maybe next time we have one of these is a sweet treat. We'll give you the what could have been should have been but if I would have never guessed all seven would have one. I figured the reason you picked it is because five of them wanted me hit one. Pretty good.

Mark

Yeah, I've seen that. I was watching it. Unfold in front of me as the games are being played, he had one to go. And when I stopped watching that one game was gonna be a loser. But his ticket was already a winner. So I stopped watching it. Come in the next day and that ticket is all winner. Say, wow, wow.

Shane

Yeah, that's crazy. So like I said, I wonder if there was like four combinations of five that hit each for 2000 to get you there.

Mark

Yeah, I don't know. That's just to me.

Preston

Combinations of that.

Mark

I agree with Preston with a being preseason football and you hit whoo. This guy could be dangerous gal or girl could be dangerous. Come regular season football.

Preston

Without a doubt.

Shane

Wow. Well, I do I like like picking six teams and doing the round robin combinations that we talked about it before. So we'll watch and see how because a lot of cases a lot of folks don't take advantage of that or use that ability or that, I guess facet to wagering on sports.

Mark

Yeah, most people don't understand that wager standard.

Preston

Right? That's a problem.

Shane

Well, good. Congratulations, whoever you are on the round robin, or somebody that took a bad beaten. Tell us who that was.

Mark

And I didn't put you in on it this time. So I really thought about it. I really thought about it because Preston has been seeing me dance over here on an episode on a piece that's coming up soon. And I wanted to put it here on his bad beat. But no, but I'll savor the flavor for later. All right, so on the bad beat side, we have a guest that made a here at Southland, a $200 three team parlay bet. Nothing too extravagant, but a $200. That's somewhat reasonable. If your pockets are deep. So the games were from August 17th. We have the Guardians run line at minus one and a half. We have the under eight on the Dodgers and brewers game. And then the only favorite that was on this person's ticket with the Chicago Sky pointspread Minus nine and a half. And then and those odds are at minus 120. And the Sky lost to New York Liberty 98 to 91.

Shane

Oh, man, you mean they didn't take the aces?

Mark

Did not Well, yeah. No, they did not.

Shane

What we find out when the WNBA gets played. It's usually the aces.

Mark

Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Well, we still got the guests that still pick us pick us apart with the aces.

Shane

You got the first two and then of course the I wouldn't say it was favorite. Not heaviest favorite in the world, but a favorite nevertheless. And you get kind of screwed by the favorite at the end.

Preston

Large favorite of you to play it on the money line. I mean, it's just. Not only the point spread was so high, they lost outright.

Mark

Yep. The only favorite ticket? I mean, it wasn't going to pay a ton of money. You know, I mean, it would have been decent, but well.

Shane

For $200. What would have paid?

Mark

I don't know, the odds were the odds were plus 105 on both of the other two.

Shane

I love that thing. I know you would have paid decent how much you would have paid that?

Mark

Well, they'll say $600.

Shane

Yeah, well, we know what it actually paid. That's for sure that's zero.

Mark

That's right. That's what I should have told you. Zero dollars. Whoo. So those are your bad beats and sweet treats for this week. Now, that's right.

Shane

So what we ended up doing, and we only got a couple of conferences to go, as a matter of fact, in about two weeks, really, the football season will kick off in college. Two weeks from today, gentlemen, how about our one week from today? I'm sorry, how about that?

Preston

Been waiting all summer for it.

Shane

We have so we've got two conferences left to pick the over unders on the win totals for each team. And this week, we have the big 10 Conference, which oddly enough when we talked about the big 12 Never having 12 or the big 10 hasn't had 10 teams in it for quite a while but they keep the same name for some reason. They're going to be adding two teams next year. And the likes of UCLA and USC so a lot of things going on big media rights deal announced yesterday. Big 10 kind of leaving ESPN and going with a conglomerate of folks, Fox NBC CBS all that good stuff so lots of happenings in there. And Preston is gonna join us he's gonna pick against us right here.

Preston

I've got all my stuff ready.

Shane

Yeah, just probably a preview to the pros verse joes segment you think?

Mark

I think so. Absolutely.

Preston

Wait, man, Wait, which one of us is a pro?

Mark

That'd be us.

Shane

Preston, you know what they say if you if you can't identify the sucker at a poker table, then five minutes suckers you.

Preston

That's probably correct.

Shane

All right, let's go over to the east side of the division or the conference rather, Michigan Wolverines last year finally made a season out of it after about four years under Harbaugh and not doing much at all. 12 and two last year, current thinking the win total over under is nine and a half. So 10 wins or more is minus 130. If you think they'll go nine or less than 105 On the positive side, let's let the guest go first. And each of these will go. Yep. Mark and then myself. What do you got there? Preston? What do you think?

Preston

I'm gonna stick with the over on this one, I think Michigan is still gonna be very strong. Got to run on the table all the way to the end until that Big matchup on their last game with Ohio State. So I've got them at eleven and one, which firmly puts me in the over section there. I've got a game to spare. So.

Mark

I went with the over as well and fall on the herd at minus 130. I go 10 games, they lost some key players are just not going to be a devastating loss, but they will drop a few games.

Shane

Yeah, the key thing Preston says is you got an extra game to spare, which is always good when you got Harbaugh involved because that Michigan State game is a little iffy. And then of course, the Ohio State game is always iffy. So if you look at the rest of the schedule, I do not see a whole lot of, you know, things that I would be worried about if I were Michigan...Football then now yeah, you lost one of the best defensive players you had. But it wasn't all deep ends that won you last year anyway. All right. Next team on the list. You got Ohio State speaking of a team Michigan has trouble with they were 11 into last year. Now it's interesting. They think Michigan is going to take a step back but not Ohio State 10 and a half when they're over under so 11 or more is minus 240. It is not deterring anybody right now, if you go under, you get plus 180 odds at this point, Preston the Ohio State buckeye.

Preston

And that minus plus 180 is very tempting, but also not correct. I've got them running the table this year. I don't think they're gonna have any issue anywhere on their schedule. I've got to finish it up. 12 and 0 going into the big 10 championship game. And okay, probably probably into the college playoffs as well.

Mark

Yeah, I kind of have to hang right around with that as well. I have to go with a herd of minus 240. I understand the odds is where you're going to try to make your money but if you go under your take is going to be a loser.

Preston

It's gonna give us money.

Mark

I think worst case scenario there are 11 and 1 which still puts them over that 10 and a half mark.

Shane

Wow. So you're both going over?

Mark

Yeah. Tell us you're losing ticket.

Shane

Well, I'm gonna I'm gonna take the odds on here. I'm gonna go under. I'm gonna go pin Exactly. But let me let me tell you how. Where it has to happen. And it has to happen the first game of the season they host Notre Dame who's ranked fifth in the nation in the preseason polls right now. So nobody really has a tune up game. Ohio State has to lose that game for me to cash in my under because after that Arkansas State win Toledo win they get Wisconsin at home, which should be tough, but they should win that Rutgers is a win now at Michigan State could be a little dicey. And I hate to say this next part, they get Iowa at home, that's probably a win and then they go. They go at Penn State, which isn't ever easy. And then they got Michigan so there are about two or three of these games that are if ease if they have a bad day, you get some weather equalization, especially later in the year. And the odds are just too good for me on the other side. So I'm gonna I'm gonna say 10 wins and hope to go under.

Mark

All right, you say we're replaying this at some point?

Shane

You will Yeah. It is worth taking the shot here. Michigan State Spartans 11 and 2 last year, they were kind of the surprise team in the big 10. For a lot of the especially the eastern side of that conference, seven and a half. So eight wins or more as minus 135. Seven wins or less plus 105. The Spartans, where are you on? Oh, Sparty, there Preston.

Preston

I'm gonna have to take the over on this one as well. Looking at it right now, I have them going, I'm sorry, nine and three, which puts them over. I don't see much, much problem in the way their schedule other than the Michigan Ohio State, obviously. And then I've got to drop into Penn State the last game of the year at Penn State. So I've still got them 9 and 3, which puts me over. So I'll take the 135

Mark

Yeah, that's where I'm heading to I'm going over at minus 135. They're deep. Their offense is a little worse than last year. Defense is supposedly supposed to be a little better. But I see them at eight wins. So just over that seven and a half.

Shane

No, I agree with you guys, especially now they're at Washington. The third game of the year in Washington isn't supposed to be that great. But I always worry about East Coast teams going to the West Coast too sometimes. But after that they got kind of the baker's dozen of weak teams, they get to play Illinois, Rutgers, Indiana all should be wins there. Maryland's not very good should be when Minnesota will be tougher than many people probably will give it credit for at time but I'm like I had nine wins down as well so and as Preston would say, even if they dropped one and get eight I'm still over.

Preston

That's right. That's right. I always get myself one room. A buffer there.

Shane

Yeah, alright Penn State Nittany Lions. Now this is interesting last year seventh and sixth not very good. Just couldn't seem to win close games at all. Eight and a half though they they're shrugging that off the automakers are nine wins or more even money. But currently, a lot of people think and it's going to be eight or less at minus 130. Where are you Triple P.

Preston

I'm actually over on this one. Just running it down. I've got them at nine wins, which barely puts me over I don't like not having that buffer. But I do think they get to nine. I think the majority of their schedule there. It's all going to come down to the Michigan State game at the end. I've got them losing the Ohio State and Michigan. I've got them losing the Auburn. So everything comes down to that Michigan State. I can see why the under is going the way it is. But I think they beat Michigan State I've got them at nine wins. So I'm gonna go over and take the odds.

Mark

You would think that we're sitting next to each other while he's making these picks we're not I went over as well. At that plus 100 I went nine wins. Oh, they have a decent good schedule I think to get there and they have a decent defense nothing's really changed there but I think they I think they do get to the nine.

Shane

Yeah, this is probably one of the best lines on the whole sheet because I think they're right eight or nine wins to your guys's point I'm going to go under I'm gonna go eight. I'm going to say that they're going to lose their opener at Purdue I think the lose at Auburn I think they'll lose at Michigan and then I think they'll end up getting beat by either Ohio State which is more likely than Michigan State. They get Michigan State at home so I think they struggle to get to eight and if they do it's probably a good season based on the schedule he got this year. How about that? Well you got to go to Auburn and have Michigan so did now granted you do get the Ohio State game and Michigan State games at home and there probably be night games at least one of them and night games over there and over there to Penn State at what is that not Camp Randall. Help Help me out Preston where they play their home games and state what do they call that? The valley?

Preston

Yeah, they usually do those Happy Valley. Happy Valley whiteout games.

Shane

Yeah that Happy Valley whiteout games are no joke All right. Now we get to the bottom feeders of the conference a little bit they're worth seven six last year but they're only projected they'd be at five and a half this year. So six wins or more as minus 135 wins or less plus 105 the old Maryland Terrapins What do you think?

Preston

Wow. I have a half I've done on and again I've got him over at six and six I gotta barely making a bowl game with a six and six I think they win early in the year the first couple of games are pretty easy. Then they're going to run through some losses. But I think that Purdue playing at home Northwestern at home those are both wins. I've got to beat in Indiana and then Rutgers at the end of the year to get to six. So I'm going to take the over

Shane

Nice yeah. I promise you he's still not sitting next to me I went six wins as well one with the over minus 130.

Preston

Stay out of my notes, Mark.

Mark

Yeah, I just looked at the schedule and I'm just picking six teams I thought they could win on everything else if it was sketchy I'm like nope. So I just went with six.

Shane

No, I will I did that to Buffalo win Charlotte win SMU at home should be a win the matter skip down to Indiana for a win Northwestern for a win and then Rutgers at the end of the year got me to six.

Preston

Same as mine.

Shane

Yep. So that's that's a tough one they can screw up on any games are supposed to win. Otherwise, I think we're toast I don't think they surprise beat anybody this year. All right, Rutgers Scarlet Knights five and eight last year. Yeah, they do play football. Evidently, they're four on the nut had to get that from the MGM line. I couldn't find the line a couple of weeks ago on the Betly for Rutgers so four is the line we'll use here. Minus 115. If you think it's five or more, and three or less is minus 105. How about those Scarlet Knights there Preston?

Preston

I think there's a reason you couldn't find it, sir. I have got them going on under the three or under four I guess. Right now, looking at their schedule. I have been beating Wagner because I didn't know Wagner play football. Other than that.

Mark

Oh hang on a second Preston. I think we lost. We have some technical difficulties. I think we did lose the boss. Oh, he did. lost the boss.

Preston

He didn't want to didn't want to hear what I had to say.

Shane

Hey, we're back.

Mark

Okay. All right. Yeah, he got he didn't want to listen to your BS there Preston. He was like oh no!

Preston

He heard me start talk about him and hung up the phone.

Shane

I was like under Preston under four? Oh my goodness. And then I just go out.

Preston

Now I honestly I have em going one in 11 I've gotten beaten Wagner you know, that powerhouse football team there. Other than that, I have them losing every game in the big 10. And I don't think they can beat Boston College or Temple away. So I've got them going one and 11 this year.

Mark

Okay, well, I do have them going under minus 105. But I got them right at four wins. So I do you think I know Preston will love this? Because I'm sure it'll talk about it later. But I got them beaten Nebraska.

Shane

Shots fired. Shots fired!

Preston

I think that's a terrible picture. That's just my personal opinion.

Shane

Wow, you mean straight up and not pointspread? Mark. I mean, you know, these games are scored by going head to head right not pointspread.

Preston

I know it's a home game. I just don't see that being such a great, you know, home advantage there at Rutgers.

Mark

If I lose, it's still under. So you know, I'm picking the under.

Shane

Maybe they can play that game in the basketball gym and they got a shot.

Mark

There you go.

Shane

Alright. I got to actually have him to games. I haven't beaten Wagner whoever they are. And I actually do have them. I actually do have them going up the road, which is like 20 miles to Temple and beating Temple. Because I didn't even know temple had a football team until I felt good. So I can't be good. All right, all of us on the underside there. Yeah. Indiana Hoosiers, the last one in the East Division Two and 10. Last year, typical Indiana, four and a half this year. So they expect some improvement by the oddsmakers. If they're five ones are more, it's plus 115 and four wins or less minus 140. What ya got Preston?

Preston

I'm gonna take the minus 140. I've got them at four wins. I think the first three of the season they win. And then the only thing they snag out from there is Rutgers middle of the season. Everything else I've got them fall in. So I've got him at four and eight. And you know, they might not even be Western Kentucky. So that gives me a little bit of a buffer there. But I don't think they get to five.

Shane

Alright. He's going under what do you got Mark?

Mark

I'm going under as well, that minus 140. They have a tough schedule. Not that it would take much for it to be tough for them. But I do have them at four wins.

Shane

I do too. Preston Nailed it. Nailed it. The only one I'm a little concerned that and I just mean little is their annual game they get at home against Purdue and for some reason, Purdue seems to step on themselves when they should beat Indiana and somehow they don't. Yeah, that interstate rivalry game at the end, I think determined whether they stay at four or sneak above it and go five. So I guess we'll see. Maybe Maybe they'll drop the Illinois game and I'll feel a lot better. Maybe they'll drop it right at the beginning of the year.

Mark

I'm shocked that if you felt felt some type of way about it. You just didn't go ahead and play the odds and go over.

Shane

Yeah, well, not that case, because it wasn't that juicy. Wasn't like plus 180. Alright, we move on to the west side and the west side of the division ought to be a little better this year. As far as competition wise. You did at 14 buy in at one point for the share of that conference. Last year, Iowa got out of there with 10 and four as division champion. Now after that, 10 wins they think seven and a half this year for Iowa. There's a good reason why we'll explain in a minute. Do you think eight wins or more? It's minus 105. If you think seven ones or less, minus 115. Where are you at with the hot guys there Preston?

Mark

Here we go.

Preston

Oh look you got a big smile on this.

Mark

See that's that's the piece that the cameras would pick up right now. What we're what we're looking at, together.

Preston

That's right. And I can't see Shane's face when I say this, but I've definitely got the under for Iowa.

Shane

Whoa!

Preston

See, I knew I couldn't see Shane's face.

Mark

You can't see it. But you can you can picture it.

Preston

I can definitely picture it.

Shane

Because you don't work for me.

Preston

That's why Mark told me to make this prediction. I actually haven't gone five and seven. I don't even have to make it a bowl game this year. Sorry, Shane. I know when you do my picks for my team, I'm sure it'll be pretty much the same thing.

Shane

Make note make note we have to find a new third host.

Mark

All right. Well, I didn't I this was a part where we didn't agree. I went with the over at minus 105. I think they'll have eight wins. I don't think there'll be as good as they were last year. But I do think they'll have eight wins and out of those eight wins. One of them is against Nebraska. Throwing it out there.

Preston

We hadn't got there yet Mark calm down.

Shane

Yeah, calm down on those Cornhuskers. Mark actually hit where I went eight wins is where I think they land last year they didn't have to play Michigan Ohio State or Michigan State this year they got to play two of the three and they get Michigan at home which is okay but they have to go to Ohio State middle part of the year so I think that's a big L but yeah, I have em winning eight so that's right on the Mendoza line but just to the overside this year, but not as good as last year. No doubt.

Preston

Homer pick.

Shane

I think I am going to win the national championship.

Mark

That's what I expected to hear.

Shane

Ya know, I'm realistic Hawkeye fan, if anything, that's for sure. Minnesota Golden Gophers. Now a lot of folks think between Wisconsin and Minnesota the between those two one of them women's division this year, nine and for last year, seven and a half though. On the oddsmakers line eight wins or more as minus 115. Seven months or less minus 110. The Golden Gophers Preston, what do you got him going?

Preston

I just on the bottom side of that line. I'm gonna take the under at seven and five. I've got them losing that last game of the year to Wisconsin to drop that last one. But yeah, just looking at their schedule. I don't think they can beat Michigan State or Penn State. I've got a surprise loss in the middle of the year there, Illinois. And yes, I took Nebraska to beat them. We'll get to that later. But yeah, losing that last game to Wisconsin brings them to seven and five. So I'm gonna take the under on that.

Mark

All right. I they you know, they talk about this new offensive line. Look. All right. Well, yeah, I'm not buying that changes to the defensive line. I think they're going to be under under the seven and a half. I got them at six wins.

Shane

Six wins? Yeah, I mean, I got them at six wins as well. I gotta go under. Because I think they have to surprise a couple of teams on the road, which they, they sure haven't been capable of lately. So I guess we're all on the under on this one. And to varying degree. Alright now Wisconsin Badgers now nine for last year kind of seemed like an off year to them. They they made a mad rush at the end. They struggled early. I think they were one in three at one point or 2 and 4 something like that. Eight and a half is the current thinking from the oddsmakers nine wins or more, which a lot of people will see here at minus 145 Eight wins or less at plus 115. That bad does what do you think they're Preston?

Preston

The badges? I have them going over just barely. I've got them not in three. But I think they got losses there at Ohio State and Michigan State. And then they're going to drop that one next to last game in Nebraska. So I've got them at nine and three.

Mark

Yeah, I think they're scheduled there. Their record will mimic what they had last year. I got them over as well. Nine wins a minus 145.

Shane

Well, I would love to go on the other side just because they're one of Iowa's main rivals, but I just can't. I'd have to really be wishful thinking to give them an eight. I think there with you guys at nine wins maybe even 10.

Preston

They could be a 10.

Shane

I'm not even 100% sure that Nebraska game out to be a good game because I just have to see it from Nebraska before I can believe it. So nine or 10 wins is where I have Wisconsin actually have them win in the western division here. Sadly enough. All right. Purdue nine and for last year, they think they took a tiny step back seven and a half is the current over under eight wins or more plus 110. Seven wins or less minus 140. So where are you at with the Boilermakers Preston?

Preston

I'm dealing with the betters on this one. I have them coming in at six and six this year. So again, I give myself a couple of games to play with. But I don't think they get all the way up there. I've got them at six, barely making a bowl game, just winning the last few games of the year because they're pretty easy at Northwestern in Indiana, but I've got them at six.

Mark

I went with the under as well minus 140 Got them with five wins. Two of those five would be one against Nebraska and one against Iowa.

Shane

Oh my goodness.

Preston

Well, as you're trying to throw jabs, sir, I actually have them beating Nebraska so.

Shane

I think we know who Mark picked for the national championship this year. And it's not Nebraska.

Preston

Throwing everything against Nebraska, he doesn't trust it at all.

Shane

I'm going with eight. I think there's a surprise to him of the big 10 West this year. And eight wins just gets me over the thing. So yeah, Iowa at home I unfortunately, that's where I counted one of Iowa's losses anyway, so they have trouble for some reason going to West Lafayette. And I think that that will give them their eighth win. So I went over and give me the plus Q's at 110. Illinois fighting the Lion five and seven last year boy, four and a half. So about the same they think this year five wins or more, minus 120. Even money at four less Preston whereas Illinois on your sheet there?

Preston

I'm going over on this one. I think they ended up the same way as last year five and seven. They just have too many easy games early in the year or I think they're easy games. Wyoming Virginia and Chattanooga. They should win all three of those I think and then I've got them also beaten Purdue and Minnesota to get them to five wins.

Mark

Yeah Nice. I to have them at five wins at the minus 120. They have an offensive coordinator change. We'll see how that plays out for them. They do have a good defense. So I don't see much moving around there. That's why I kept my at the same record as last year.

Shane

I just don't see it at I can't get any wins really? Hardly. I mean, I give them the Wyoming when I'm not sure if they beat Indiana. I'm not sure they beat Virginia. I'm pretty sure they beat Chattanooga and then after that, I don't see another win except maybe when they go to Northwestern at the end of the year. Yeah, I just I see a dumpster fire there and blue or Bloomington and then Champaign, Illinois, so I think they get three maybe four wins at best this year. For a look for a new coach probably Yep. Here's the so I'm gonna under yes sir Nebraska Cornhuskers, you know, there's a prosper warning going on out there. That's like four or five years of absolute crap. But last year, the interesting stat on Nebraska was they were the team that lost the most games by the fewest total number of points in the entire country. So they were there and a lot of games just could not pull it out at the end or took it away. three and nine last year, seven and a half. So this tells you that the bookmakers are thinking about the same thing. They do get the Texas QB transfer. This year. And so that might play into it. If they think eight wins or more, it's minus 120. So I know Mark isn't betting this. Seven wins or less. Yeah. Seven months or less. It's minus 105. So this is probably the most interesting theme in the entire conference. Where are you with Nebraska Preston?

Preston

I am way over. I think I am way over way over. I'm on the frost train this year. I think that right now he is sitting on the hottest seat in college football coaching. I think that they're gonna have to see something this year he went in in the offseason completely revamped his offensive coaching staff did get the transfer in from Texas he got a really strong running back core. And I think that you're going to see more of the Scott frost from Central Florida opening the offense up trying to make people keep up with him. And he knows that it's this It's do or die for him this year. I have them at 10 wins with their...

Shane

10 wins.

Mark

I've been waiting to hit that button.

Preston

I know you have. I do I limit 10 wins this year. I have them actually went in there after the conference going up against Ohio State in the big 10 championship game. So I riding with frost this year. I think last year again to your point you know three point loss to Michigan you know three point loss or five point loss to Purdue nine points to Ohio State that were right there in those games. And I think that this year with his new offense he's gonna find a way to pick up some wins in those close games. So I've got him over.

Shane

Well I just want to we just want to remind everybody that we do not do pre employment testing for folks that come on our show. Well Mark I don't even need that you're under I know.

Mark

I'm under I do think they improved from last year. I'll give I'll give Preston that. But I've got them at six wins. I think they got they improved to mediocre.

Preston

It's definitely an improvement than what they weren't last year.

Mark

So I got them at six wins.

Shane

Now let me let me tell you they do get as far as the conference schedule go one of the easiest ones they do not face Ohio State. They do not face Michigan State this year. They do not face Penn State this year. Right. They do get now they do get Northwestern over in Dublin, Ireland that are rescued so that's going to tell me everything I need to know about the Cornhusker season but I think if somehow they lose that game, they should be able to play Northwestern and Antarctica and win if they're as good as they supposed to be this year but let's say they get that when they get North Dakota at home that should be a win Georgia Southern a win. Now they get Oklahoma at home. Yeah, they played him really close last year and Norman a lot closer than I thought they would you remember Preston? I think they were like 18 or 19 Point underdog or something crazy like that last year.

Preston

They were and they normally lose about seven. And Oklahoma was a little over rated too so.

Shane

As it found out, yep. You're right there. Then they get Indiana Rutgers they're at Purdue which could be a little trip up game Illinois at home Minnesota at home at Michigan, which will be a tough one. It's constant, a tough one, and then they finish at Iowa. And they've had trouble the last seven, eight years playing Iowa, no matter who the coach is. But still, if you give them three L's, that gives them 9 wins. So I'm with Preston, I hate to say it, because they're definitely not a team I root for but I got, I gotta go, I gotta go nine, nine and three this year. So I'm gonna go with the over

Mark

Wow, over your Hawkeyes.

Shane

My Hawkeyes eight and four so I actually think they turn around and either have the same record at the end of the year or they lose to him by one game basically.

Preston

See Mark, I'm not as crazy as you thought I was.

Mark

We'll see at the end of the year.

Shane

Yeah, no kidding. Northwestern Wildcats the last team three and nine last year. So they stunk this year. They're expected to think again, three and a half minus 155. On the over though, which is only four wins. Don't get excited. And then three or less is plus 118. Where are ya? on the Wildcats?

Preston

Ah, the Wildcats I think they're gonna sneak just over I've got four wins. They have a pretty easy out of conference schedule. All three at home Duke, Southern Illinois and Miami of Ohio. So I think those are three wins early in the season, they'll get their hopes up. And then they get into conference play and just completely lose all the way to the end. I've got to beat Illinois in the last game to give them their fourth win. Their conference schedule is pretty tough. But I think those out of conference games are pretty easy. And they should be able to walk through those with no problem.

Mark

Yeah, I'm close there. I just I am at three wins for them. So I went under at the plus 120 I think you're right on the first three games there. And then after that, they give up hope. They don't win one after that. So I don't see him getting that fourth win. So I went three under.

Shane

Yeah, no, I'm with you. I didn't even we talked about a Duke Bailey barely plays football at all they should hopefully win that one. Southern Illinois. They gotta win Miami, Ohio. I'm not 100% Sure they win that one. So that that made me pick the under right there. I'm not 100% Sure they can win that game. And then when they get into when they get into the actual main slate of the big 10 games, I don't see a single win in there. Maybe Illinois at the end. But outside of that. I gotta I gotta hedge my bets there. I'm gonna go three wins. Take the plus juice at 120.

Preston

There you go. Yep, that Illinois was mine too.

Shane

Alright, well, that is your big 10 selections with a special bonus. Parlay Preston thrown his three cents in. So we're gonna we're gonna go ahead. And yeah, by the end of September, early October, we're going to take a look at all these picks again and see where we're at with what we picked and may have crow to eat by that point. Or you might give some insurance that's out there and what we do the rest of the year. Next week, we do the power conference. The SEC. We are one of the group.

Mark

I'm hoping you end up with some Alzheimer's before all that happens. And we don't revisit these.

Shane

All right now it's time for the $5. Parlay of the week, we have the rule of $5. We have five teams to pick we have to have at least the possibility to win a minimum $200 Mark. I know. Go ahead and recap this bad boy.

Mark

All right. Last week, Shana and I both went three and five. So how about that I got three wins instead of zero this time. Ha, moving on up. This is the week.

Preston

How much extra does that pay you?

Mark

Yeah. So out of all the weeks we've been doing it? We've are both minus $45. So that still means it's only going to take one ticket to get us into the plus.

Preston

So I can jump in this week and I win as much money as you have.

Mark

Yes, right. You could. We're gonna charge you $5 $45 To play well. 50 really count this week's five but you're only going to win on the $5 ticket.

Preston

Oh, I was gonna say if I bet $45 It makes it a lot easier to pick games to get to that $200.

Shane

You can do the mark selections minus 250 for all

Mark

Yeah, and he gets a power boost the odds boost.

Shane

All right, well, yeah, the power boost. Yeah, no doubt we forgot about that. All right, Preston, since you're the guests. Go ahead. We're gonna give you that your name has parlay right in it. Go ahead and give us your $5 parlay.

Preston

It does. I'm gonna swing away here. I've got starting off the Rams tonight on the money line against the Texans. I can't understand why. Plus 115 for the Rams over the Texan. So that's in there. I've got the plus 115 Tampa Bay on the Run line. Minus one and a half there. The Yankees straight up against Toronto at minus 110 I think the Yankees are gonna get back on track. Mark taught me about that one. I have the Braves on the Run line over the Astros that was my big one at plus 155 and then tomorrow I took the Colts on the money line against the lions at plus 130 All in all, it gets me to a plus 5080. So my $5 could potentially win you $258.91.

Mark

Well, he said he was swinging for the fences and then what you said Preston?

Preston

That it I had to swing away. Trying to catch back into ya.

Mark

Hold my beer. You're ready for this. I'll show you swinging for the fences. Alright.

Shane

Nebraska?

Mark

No. All right, well, he's the parlay guy. I'm the money line guy. And this time I went with five money line. Preseason NFL games. You ready?

Shane

Oh my goodness. Here we go.

Mark

I've got the Cardinals there. Plus 205 I've got the Jets plus 105 The Panthers plus 195. The Broncos plus 220 and the colt plus 130. That file that total odds is 13,500. And my little $5 could potentially win me $678.77 pennies.

Shane

Wow, that'd be a new record even to put out for the odds brothers podcast.

Mark

Yeah, that would definitely make the Sweet Treats I've already been on the bad beat side so I'm trying to get on the sweet side.

Shane

Yeah, twice I've been on the bad beat twice or could have been once for sure could have been twice.

Mark

yeah the one you protested.

Shane

back to back week. Yeah, I did protests that we're filling up my ass kicked that last game.

Preston

You were all close on being a bad beats today. He was talking about it earlier.

Shane

Alright, well my mind is primarily baseball but I do get one that was interesting Preston. He nailed exactly what I saw there but the New York Mets I got the money line tonight there at the Phillies that gets me even money. Tampa Bay Rays minus one and a half. They have the Royals coming into town and if you ever watch The Royals play save yourself the eyeballs. You actually if you give a run and a half you get plus 115 odds there. The Seattle Mariners are at the Oakland Athletics tonight. The Run line I took minus one and a half for Seattle that gets me plus 130. I got under eight and a half runs tonight in the Cardinals Diamondbacks game. That's even money. And then I took the Rams money line against the Texans for plus 120. The odds were 4250. $5 gets you $217.58.

Preston

A couple of same games there.

Shane

Couple same games. Yeah. At least for once. I got Mark not to take the Yankees. I think he's picked the Yankees six times this year last every time he took em.

Mark

Yeah, I just stayed away from all of the MLB. This time, I got just a better shot at doing the preseason football as I do the baseball. So why not?

Preston

Well, a sweet treat this week. sure how to get shot into the preseason football.

Mark

That's right. That's what inspired Yeah, that's what inspired me. I want to be him or her.

Shane

Keeping it in the parlay theme of the game. There are Betly promotions regarding parlay insurance that Mark wants to tell our folks about that.

Mark

That's right. So going on this week, during NFL preseason week two, that's from August 18 to August 22. So you place at least a $5 wager up to $30 on a two leg or more parlay bet. Minimum odds of minus 250 or greater. And if you meet all the requirements and your ticket is a loser, you will win a free bet up to $30. Very similar to the 250 promotion.

Shane

Alright, so bet at least five but the free bet maxes out at 30 You got to pick at least two teams and put them in a parlay and the odds have to be to minus 250 or greater.

Mark

That's right. They have to be the NFL preseason games.

Shane

Alright, so that basically this weekend.

Mark

Yeah, yeah. That's right.

Shane

Good deal if you want to, if you want to toy around with some NFL bets before it gets real. This is the weekend to do it. You get a little insurance. Speaking of insurance, my insurance policy. My insurance policy ran out last week but the best bet of the week.

Mark

That's it sure did.

Shane

No long waiting.

Mark

Hang on, hang on one more time.

Preston

He almost started the show with that this week, just because he was so happy about it.

Shane

I know. I know. And the crazy thing about it Preston was is that I went ahead and I took a team playing the Marlins Mark would know. And had to give up a run and a half and the team only end up winning by one run by half a run. So that's a sad way to go but I'm still seven and eight. So I am above Mark six and eight.

Mark

You are That's correct. That's correct. All right. Hopefully you got a weak knees this time and feel a little doubtful on yourself, then I can catch up. Well, I can tell you I'm not taking no minus 220 Crap. So let's uh, before we get to me and you, let's go ahead and see if Preston can go one for one one is your best bet of the week.

Preston

I don't like your story that you just said just my best bet of the week falls right in line with what you lost. My best bet of the week right now I've got the Dodgers run line minus one and a half at the mark are at home against the Marlins so that Dodgers at home I think that they went by way more than two runs so that is my bet of the week.

Mark

I went with the with the Tampa Bay Rays money line at minus 215 tonight against the Royals.

Shane

Oh my goodness what do you doing?

Mark

Boom I'm What am I doing? I'm trying to catch you that's what I'm doing I'm trying to catch you you said this game was going on forever.

Shane

So you took the minus 250 and I'm actually going to try to earn some people some money here I took the Tampa Bay game as well but I went with the Run line minus one and a half if Tampa Bay cannot beat the Royals by at least two wins or more they need to go ahead and move on down to the minors. I mean you plus 115 hours on that against the Royals I was expecting more of a two and a half line actually.

Mark

That might move later.

Shane

On that game so yeah my move but it's locked in right now and hit minus one.

Mark

That's right that's right.

Shane

All right. Wait anybody else got anything for us today?

Mark

Do not It was a pleasure having Preston on.

Preston

I thank you all so much for inviting me it doesn't

Mark

it doesn't look like I'm sitting here talking to myself so that's even better.

Preston

I'll not speaking so bad about Iowa next time where I keep getting invited back.

Shane

Yeah, it may be a little while Yeah, right you'll you'll be back on the show. So have your picks ready at any given time.

Preston

You got it.

Shane
