Mark

We got a special show today, don't we?

Shane

We do, first time we're not in studio together up there on the stage in front of the Sports Bar and Grill there at Southland casino and hotel. Well you're there.

Mark

I'm here looking like a weirdo or talking myself.

Shane

That delicious lunch special. You and your plate. And then I'm overlooking the lake somewhere in Missouri because of confidentiality agreements that cannot disclose the location.

Mark

That's right.

Shane

But it is very nice.

Mark

Just say it's on Mars.

Shane

Yeah, yeah. With my helmet on and so if you hear some boat horn that might be blowing that really isn't a boat horn at all. On the spacecraft.

Mark

Oh, okay. Sweet.

Shane

All right, that's just between me and you.

Mark

Okay, got it. We won't tell nobody.

Shane

Welcome everybody to Episode Eight of the Odds Brothers podcast. Keep in mind, we're on Google. We're also on Amazon podcast. So you've got all four big man or big people in the room. However you listen to us, we're glad you're listening today. On today's show, as you know, we've been what four weeks now, this will be the fourth week we've been going through the NFL first on Team totals over and under known as the futures wagers. So today we'll tackle the ACC. For those that are interested had the Atlantic Coast Conference for those that do not know the the order of those letters and what they stand for. So it ought to be interesting, because there are some pretty good teams normally that are in the football championship discussion within the ACC. One was a little bit down last year might have heard Clemson. We'll see how we feel about him this year. And then we'll go from there. But before that happens, Mark, I know we always tell everybody that if you are not on the Arkansas Betly app, as of yet you should get on it. And if you do, entice with an offer for us.

Mark

That's right, you should be on the Arkansas app. And if you haven't ever been on there and you want to be the first time player on there, we have $250 Reasons Why You Should we have a 200 promotion going on a $250 risk free first bet. There must be a minimum of $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. That's if you lose if you're a winner. Congratulations.

Shane

Yeah, congratulations, hoping hopefully your winnings are more than what you bet. I think in this game, it always has to be right.

Mark

I believe so.

Shane

Because you get your money back so you always get something on top.

Mark

Yeah, that's right. Up to $250 not a bad bet. Then you take that and take that free bet. Turn it into real hard cash.

Shane

That's right and keep in mind the college football season coming up soon in the end of August, August 26. Actually, we have New Mexico State Nevada. The first real true Saturday, of college football is on August 27, where there's about eight games it looks like on the slate. And then of course last night at the first preseason game for the NFL was a Hall of Fame Game right?

Mark

That's right. I think I fell asleep. But that's right.

Shane

Well, the Raiders decisively won it looks like I think it was 27 to 11.

Mark

Yeah, they had a little bit of delay starting because of weather.

Shane

Yeah, but you know, interesting thing is is even though it's preseason football, and you don't pay too close attention to it, it's obviously great to know that football is back on the TV.

Mark

It's just around the corner get those tickers ready.

Shane

That's right getting getting those tickers ready and making sure you sign up to the app we have what we call the sweet treats and bad beat segment where we tell you somebody that hit a nice one on a sports book dance and then we tell you about somebody came awful close yeah, it isn't me again, we my highlight it again this week.

Mark

No, you're not highlighted this week. I found somebody less fortunate.

Shane

So give us a sweet treat for this week!

Mark

All right. Sweet Treats now went a little different with the sweet treat this time. So a guest bet $3,000 here on site at the sports book at Southland. $3,000 I know that's not something that I would be doing but we do have folks that do that, but if you could rake up three grand on a two team just a two teamer two team parlay, these games were played on July 31. This ticket had the WNBA aces point spread at minus 17 and a half. And that was, that was at minus 110. And then they had the Diamondbacks and Braves under eight at plus 105. Just a two teamer, just a measly two teamer for three grand. How much do you think that paid?

Shane

You know, the interesting thing when you say this is we noticed that whenever we see a WNBA game for some reason, the aces are involved in whoever's ticket This is on the sweet treat segment. I don't know if the ACES themselves are just nothing but a sweet treat, but 3000 on a two Teamer. Total. How about 9000?

Mark

You're close. $11,740 11,000-

Shane

Wow almost four times your money on a two teamer.

Mark

two team ticket. That's right. You know what means?

Shane

Yep. That's right. And because it's not 300 to one, right.

Mark

That's right. No taxes. No taxes on that one.

Shane

That's right, IRS. Keep your grubby paws to yourself. It's all coming back. Well, I say interesting that four times your money on a $3,000 two teamer, don't just hear about that every day.

Mark

That's right. I mean, you you'll have the better 3000 to win the 11. Of course, you know, like you're saying just do the math and four times, whatever your bet. Whatever you can afford.

Shane

Okay, and, well, of course, if somebody's getting really lucky on the sports books, there's also some folks that didn't quite get too lucky. We call that the bad beat where they were oh, so close, but came up a little short. Who's our bad beat for this week?

Mark

That's right this week, so we're a little bit more realistic with the bet so the guest bet a guest bet here on site $100 On a nine team parlay. These games were played on August 3. This ticket had the Athletic and Angels under seven, Padres money line, Rockies and Padres over eight and a half Dodgers money line than the Dodgers and Giants under seven and a half. Then we go to a WNBA Storm money line.

Shane

Oh, they didn't take the aces.

Mark

No, they didn't. And then a WNBA, Lynx and Storm over. Not sure I've typed in an error there. So I'm not sure what those points are supposed to be. But I guarantee is not what I typed in at 655. Yeah. However, on the ninth one, they had the angels money line. And they lost. And angels were the heavy favorite at minus 230. And they lost three to one. Oh, yeah. They thought they had it. So, nine teamer and they lost with just one. How much do you think that ticket would have paid?

Shane

Nine team and the base bet was how much again?

Mark

Which one?

Shane

How much was the initial? $100? Nine teamer, was some of that stuff at the end was at like 30-40 grand?

Mark

Oh, no, no, no, no, no, your way off.

Shane

Oh, high, again. It must have been at 655 point over under you threw me.

Mark

That's right. That's what it was.

Shane

How about. Okay, so it was, it was like 18 20,000?

Mark

No, you'd closer. I'll save you the misery. It's $5,739 They could have won.

Shane

And instead, you the big wham wham sandwich.

Mark

That's right, yes sir!

Shane

And you just think going into a big heavy favorite at home in baseball. And you think you should have that one in the bag and then they blow it.

Mark

Yeah. And they actually lost that you only need loss of really in the sixth inning nothing really happened after that. So.

Shane

And let me tell you, that's why you never can count on it. There is no such thing as a sure thing.

Mark

No, that's right. That's right. That's right. Otherwise it'd be easy.

Shane

Yeah, easy, kinda like picking these over unders for team win total. So let's get into that by the ACC.

Mark

All right, let's do it!

Shane

Yeah, Atlantic Coast Conference, we'll go to the Atlantic Division of that conference. Where you see Wake Forest last year surprisingly, went 11 and three. And they won that division in that conference last year. Just to go down there. Their winning totally even though they won 11 last year is eight and a half now. Alright, so minus 120. If you think it'll go nine wins or more and minus 110. If it's eight wins or less, and looking at the schedule. If you take out some of the stuff that you consider the offseason schedule, they got VMI which is the Virginia Military Institute. So that's kind of a almost a rivalry. game with them right off the bat. Then they see SEC. Now anytime you play an SEC school named Vanderbilt, you can almost chalk that up as a win. Then you got liberty and then you turn around and then they get into their conference schedule. Minus army who's in the middle of that game there. So that's where we're rolling with the Wake Forest. Demon Deacons. What do you like there?

Mark

I like going on the over. I think they'll get over that eight and a half. I don't think they'll quite get to their record last year. So I've got them sitting at 10 wins. Think they're gonna be a powerhouse.

Shane

So you're going over.

Mark

I went over. That's right. Minus 120.

Shane

Yeah, I think it might have gave it away on which way it was going. Because I named all the weak teams, they should get four wins on in a heartbeat. They only have to get five more the rest of the way. I think I'm good there. All right. Over on the Wake Forest team here. All right, next team that finished second on here was North Carolina State Wolfpack, well, technically just a win percentage, they were nine and three. So they played one less game and some of them in some cases, two, because they didn't go to their championship game. But nine wins last year. They're at eight and a half now. So basically the same thing if you think they win nine games or more, which weird the odds are minus 160. And if you think they'll go eight or under it's plus 130. What say you?

Mark

I say their schedule are their record remains the same at nine. So I went over at that minus 160. Kind of following the herd with that one.

Shane

Yeah, you know what, I'm gonna go eight wins. I'm gonna go ahead and take the under on this one. Yeah.

Mark

A little different.

Shane

A little different there. But you know, you look at their schedule, their offseason are lousy, they're off conference schedule isn't quite as juicy, I think is Wake Forest was then end up playing the Liberty's of the world. They are playing East Carolina, they are playing Charleston Southern, which is a gimme, but after that they got Texas Tech, which is a pretty good one out of the big 12 conference. So I think they lose that one. Then they get into some teams that they haven't been problems with within division Clemson's of the world, stuff like that. So give me eight. Sounds like we got a winner there!

Mark

Yeah, yeah. That's right. Right next to the stage, we have a winner, winner, winner chicken.

Shane

Clemson Tigers. They're the team that most people know of in the ACC. Last year. 10 wins out of the playoffs though. Unbelievably unbelievable. Primarily because they lost a Notre Dame there. But they're 10 and a half. So I actually think 11 wins this year, or more get you minus 105. And if you think they'll go 10 wins or less. It's minus 115.

Mark

Yeah, I don't I don't I have them at right at 10 wins again this year. I don't see them getting to 11. I wouldn't shock me if they did. But that's why those odds are so close. But I did take the under, went under.

Shane

Yeah. So you're looking at the schedule. We'll just run through it real quick. Georgia Tech. That's pretty tough. I mean, not not the toughest game in the world. But I think there'll be an improved program this year at Furman give them that win. Louisiana Tech give him that win. Then Wake Forest, NC State Boston College, Florida State, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Louisville, Miami and South Carolina. So you notice one team that they can't lose to I guess, out of that thing. They basically got to run the stable.

Mark

Yeah, that's right. What do you think?

Shane

So that's 12 games, they only can lose two or one in your case to get to 11 wins. So you still like the-

Mark

I still like the under-

Shane

Okay, me too.

Mark

You're not convincing me to change it.

Shane

I was trying to try to pick up an easy one there. Alright, so we both got the under on Clemson, Louisville, Cardinals, six and seven last year, it's been a long time since Lamar Jackson threw a football there. Five and a half. So they basically are thinking six wins again. If you think it's over, it's minus 140. But if somehow you think they get a little worse and only have five wins or less it's plus 115.

Mark

Yeah, I'm, I'm with the hurt on this minus 140. I think they'll get the six wins again. And that's where I'm sitting right on the over.

Shane

Yeah, I don't see how they can. I mean, they should be able to sleep walk into four wins, based on the schedule pretty easy. After that, I think it might get a little tougher, but you know, get the six again on with the I'm going to take the I'm going to end up taking the juice there minus 140 Give me the over as well. Florida State Seminoles five and seven last year it's been a little while since they've been relevant. Six and a half so they do think they'll improve this year according to the bookmakers seven wins or more minus 130, six wins or less 110. So you get a little extra on top if you think they'll suck again, Mark would say you?

Mark

That's what I think they'll I think they'll remain the same as well. This year. I don't see a whole lot of improvements. So I went with the five wins for them. So I went under at that plus 110 I don't think I don't think they'll get to seven.

Shane

You don't think they'll get seven you think they got the chances at six?

Mark

Maybe but that's still under.

Shane

let's put it this way. I don't even know this team from do scheme or duscane or something like that they play somebody I didn't even know how to football team to open the season. So give them one win right there. But the rest of it to your point are some big boys LSU, Wake Forest, Clemson, Miami, which they always have some problem with, of course, Florida's you know, a rivalry game at the end of the year near Thanksgiving. So I'm with ya I gotta go under. I think they might get six though. That's still under.

Mark

Yeah, that's right.

Shane

All right. Syracuse orange five and seven last year as well. Well, they think they might take a little step back. Well, four and a half. So if you think five wins, same as last year, it's minus 110. And if you think they went actually, more than that, or under that, I'm sorry. So four or less? It's minus 110. So you get the same odds either way on this one, but boy, Four or five wins. Where are you like on this one?

Mark

So I went with the under at four wins. They don't on their schedule. They don't have a Georgia Tech or Duke to play this year. So that's why I went under. I don't think they make it to five.

Shane

you don't think they make it the five Yeah, I'm looking on the schedule. Here. They got Wagner somewhere in the middle of the year. Once again, a team I didn't even know how football UConn they might win that one but they're on the road. There's two and then when I look at that, can they give them another win? For sure. Doesn't look like it. So um, but that total so dang low. I mean, you went the same so you went over technically.

Mark

No, I went under. Under I said they're gonna get four four wins this year. Oh, man.

Shane

All right. I'll go the other side. I'll try to get same they got last year. Along the line they did they get inspired. Inspired. Boston College. The Golden Eagles there. They were 500. Last year six and six. Guess where there over under is? Six and a half. So seven wins or more get you 105 You actually get plus juice there. If you think they'll have six games or less. It's minus 130.

Mark

They have an uphill battle to climb. I think they have a tough schedule. And they have a lot of roster holes that need to fill. So I don't see them improving. They'll be lucky if they get back to their same record as six and six. So I went under a minus 130

Shane

Yeah, easiest games on the schedule or remain. Well, I knew they had a football team but barely. And Duke. So there's two wins that made and to your point they gotta climb another five to get the over right there. Right.

Mark

That's right. And, and hope those roster fills are better than last year.

Shane

Yeah, you're right. So I'm under. Not sure they'll get to six. I think they'll go to five. All right, last. The other side. I should say the coastal conference where you got a nice pack of teams there. Pittsburgh, Miami, Virginia Tech, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and Duke. Yes, they do have a football team. I know they're only known for basketball. Pittsburgh Panthers they had a quarterback last year finally and they made it to 11 in three quarterbacks now gone he's actually on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster eight and a half wins now so Vegas knock them down a few pegs nine wins or more is minus 128 wins or less minus 110, who do you like?

Mark

Yeah, I went with the over, I think they'll get more than eight and a half either nine or 10 Somewhere in there. I don't know Yeah, I do. I do I know that they their quarterbacks gone but we'll see how well those coaches can do as far as coaching the new newest quarterback coming in.

Shane

I'm actually I'm gonna go under. I think I think they do take this step back here. I mean, there's their schedule Western Michigan or Rhode Island or the to give me's, but they got to go and play Tennessee, West Virginia. And then they get into the ACC schedule. Now granted, they do not play Clemson in this format. So they get a break there. They do get to play Syracuse and Duke was that's four wins. So how am I going to get five more out of that? I just think they all just a tad short there. I'm gonna go under. If I had if I had to take a guess I'll put him right at eight.

Mark

So that the oddsmakers putting you right on the spot there at eight and a half.

Shane

They were when I was doing it, I got right to eight and I tried to figure out a one they could steal it maybe somewhere they can but I find it a little tough. So I thought that line was pretty good at eight and a half. The U Miami Hurricanes seven and five last year. They're giving them a little boost your eight and a half is there over under total if you think nine wins or more to minus 110. Same thing if you think eight wins or less minus 110. So really, the line hasn't moved. Nobody really knows what to do there.

Mark

Yeah, I don't really see them doing anything different. I don't know anything that says they're going to improve and get those extra two game wins basically so I kept them at seven wins. So I went with the under at minus 110.

Shane

I'm actually gonna go over here.

Mark

Oh, what's...how they're gonna get those two wins?

Shane

Well, their first two games are give me that team Cookman which once again I thought that was a culinary school but they got a football team evidently. So they'll get a win their Southern Miss they'll get a win their middle Tennessee they'll get a win their Duke they'll get a win Syracuse they'll get a win. And I'm gonna give them win from Georgia Tech as well and probably Florida State unless they just somehow surprise me. What was that? That was six I rattled off there. I just need three more out of the following. a&m Texas a&m, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Virginia. And Pittsburgh, well think they'll do it on Virginia Tech. Yeah. Now, I'll give him the outlet because they got to go to Clemson. So we then Clemson is going to be as good as they should be. I'll give him the all there. But I think they do just squeeze over that. So go ahead and give me the over give me nine wins. Yeah, Virginia Tech Hokies six and seven last year, they basically think they'll finish the same five and a half is there over under. A lot of people going over minus 150 For six wins or more plus money if you think they'll do five or less.

Mark

Yeah, I think they're going five. They're in a rebuild process right now. I don't see where these folks unless I'm just not adept to figuring out that these are great players coming in. But with that rebuild program, I don't see them getting even the same. So I went with five wins for them. So I went under at plus 110.

Shane

I went with you there. I thought the money was worth a shot. I looked at the schedule. The only real give me is on that thing are Old Dominion and Wofford. Other than that they play some pretty big solid boys that know how to play some football other than Duke, I guess Dukes down there, too. Yeah. But you know, it's a long way since Michael Vick. So go ahead. I'll go ahead and take the plus money there because the minus doesn't really entice me to want to go there. I think four wins is pretty good for Virginia Tech. All right. The other school in Virginia, the Cavaliers they were 500. Last year, six and six. They think now seven and a half is the over under, shall we ones are mortgage even money. If you think they go seven months or less. It's minus 135.

Mark

Yeah. I think the oddsmakers really love Virginia for some reason. But I went when I went with the under at six, not six. Yeah, six wins. I think they remained the same. So I went with the under with the herd at minus 135. I don't see them improving. Yeah. I don't see them improving. Not two games. Two more games.

Shane

Yeah, well, probably not two games. To your point. I was looking at the schedule. And I think they're all they might hit seven. But I don't see any way they get to eight. So minus 135. We're on the same side there. I'd really don't like those odds. But I can't just force eight wins on the team that I barely think we'll get six or seven. I just don't see it. All right, another football school that are better known for basketball, North Carolina, the Tar Heel six and seven. Six and a half is the over under. So right around the same thing that did last year, give or take minus 155 on the over. So there's a lot of folks saying that lines too low was 120 for six wins or less.

Mark

It's really those are really, those are really interesting odds. Because at one point, the Tar Heels that that the points were at eight and a half. So there's been an adjustment there. So you know what knocked them all the way back down to six and a half, which I think is correct line. But I went with the over I went with, I think they'll get seven wins this time. I think they'll go over at minus 155.

Shane

Yeah, I mean, I can see this fall on either side. I gave him five wins out of the gate with Florida a&m Appalachian State, Georgia State, probably lose to Notre Dame probably beat Virginia Tech and Duke and then after that, I don't know about it. They'll beat Wake Forest, Virginia, Pittsburgh. But somewhere along that line, they got to sneak a couple more out of there. And I just, I'm not comfortable with that. So I'm gonna leave him at six. I'm going under.

Mark

Oh, see, I think there'll beat Virginia I'll have that's not a problem.

Shane

Well, we'll see. Are they gonna bring Mitch Trubisky back? He was a little quarterback. Unfortunately, they only played one year. Now here's the interesting one. To me, Georgia Tech. Three and nine. Last year, three and a half is the over under. So four wins out of a 12 game schedule is all it needs for plus or minus 110. If you think it's three again or less, it's the same on to minus 110. So yeah, Georgia Tech.

Mark

Georgia Tech. Now, you know, there are coaches on the hot seat Dino. Is that his name?

Shane

Yeah, I think so. Yeah.

Mark

He's on the hot seat. I mean, if he has this kind of record next year, or this year, I mean, I think they'll have a coaching change. However, I do think they will improve by one game. So I went with the over Yeah, I went with the over minus 110. I think the hot seat just gets him that one more win.

Shane

So I'll tell you and everybody out there listen how I feel. Here's your schedule. Ready?

Mark

Ready!

Shane

Clemson. That's an L. Western Carolina. Okay, I'll give you that when Ole Miss L. Central Florida L. Pittsburgh, L. Duke. Okay. I'll give you that one. Virginia L. Florida State L. Virginia Tech L. Miami, L. North Carolina L. Georgia L. So how many wins that I give em?

Mark

Two.

Shane

Two, give me the under on the Georgia Tech with a new coach midway through the season.

Mark

Oh, look at that I coaching change.

Shane

On that arm.

Mark

That's right. Let's ask our friends down in Miami. Get us the odds on the odds on the new coaching change in the mid season for Georgia Tech.

Shane

Yeah, go ahead that tread new territory and start putting odds on people getting fired.

Mark

Well, man, yeah, how many games will it take before he gets fired? That was that's what you six games four games?

Shane

That's gonna be minus 250. All right, good. Blue Devils. It's the last team yesterday we played football occasionally. three and nine last year. So we said the word occasionally. Three and a half is the over under. So basically not much better. Four wins or more though. This is funny. Plus 140 If you think we can eke out one more win somewhere. Minus 200. To go three or less.

Mark

Well, you know, not that they not that they need any excuses. But they too are in a rebuild year.

Shane

Rebuild? What qualifies as rebuild?

Mark

Well, I think they went from junior high players to high school players this time. Don't get me wrong. I don't think they improve. So I keep I go under minus 200. I do think that eventually we'll see that those points move, I think. Well, I think they should be at two and a half personally that get that play on the other side.

Shane

So you here's what I'll tell you man, I would love there's one game on the schedule I so here's their only shot because if they get past September, and haven't won the fourth game by them, they probably won't. They'll probably be stuck at three temple at home. Even if you're Duke you want to be beating Temple. Now they're at Northwestern and the big 10 Northwestern is projected to be pretty bad this year in the big 10. But if at Duke don't beat em' there then I think they have no chance to get in four because they got North Carolina at&t. I thought that was a phone company? Oh a&t, my bad, North Carolina a&t. They should win that and then they're at Kansas. Now if you want to talk about a huge basketball program that sucks at football. Kansas is probably second only to Duke if they're even second. They're having crappy football. And then they go Virginia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Miami, Boston College Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest, which means L L L L L L L and L. So at the end of the day, I know I don't I'm not competent to Northwestern. I'm going three wins with young minus 200. But I would not put it as a bet because those odds minus 200 are not good.

Mark

Yeah, they're horrible. Absolutely horrible.

Shane

Right. That is your over under prediction total for the ACC conference this year in college football. Keep in mind that the college football season kicks off right there on the 26th with one game on Friday, the 27th in earnest on Saturday. And then life will be good for all.

Mark

That's right. Yeah. Wait, can't wait.

Shane

Speaking of like being good for all it'd be nice if we hit one of these $5 five team parlays. Go ahead and give us a recap on last week?

Mark

All right. So last week, yeah, you went for five I went three and five even though you went for five I didn't I still didn't put you up there on that bad beat section. And then but you know all that equivalence to the same thing that we have won $0 So we're minus $30 Going into this.

Shane

Yeah all right. Well, I've been there both times. Waiting on that fifth one.

Mark

We only need one we're still we still have chance to catch up.

Shane

Well let me tell you I'm not feeling really great about confidence level but I do like the pics if they do come in for what it will pay you so what do you like in your $5 parlay this week?

Mark

So this week I took the Yankees run line at minus one and a half their at plus 110 Oh yeah, I'm messing with you think I learned my lesson but I'm a bit dumb animal.

Shane

I feel I know I feel a lot better about my pick. Now that I heard that.

Mark

I've got the Blue Jays run line and minus one and a half. They're a plus 130 I've got the pirates money line at plus 135 and then I've got the Mariners run line and minus one and a half at plus 115 and then the sum up my ticket I've got the Rockies money lineup at plus 110 all that for total odds of 5020 gives me a potential winning of $256.24.

Shane

All right, nice. I'm not quite in that neighborhood. But I'm around the corner there. Seattle Mariners there at home against the angels tonight and I do like the minus one and a half run line there for the mariners that gets you plus 115. If you're willing to give up that basically one and a half run, so I'm gonna take em, I like the odds there. Now since you took the Yankees, I really liked my Cardinals pick. Money line the night just flat out win baby, plus 130. At their home, they just came off a sweep of the Cubs, which doesn't mean they did a whole lot, but they're setting a good spot tonight. And it should be a really packed stadium for the three game series this week in St. Louis. They haven't played in St. Louis. I think somebody said 14 years or something crazy like that. So go ahead, give me the Cardinals were heads up there so somebody will not be successful on their $5 parlay.

Mark

That's how we both can't win.

Shane

We both can't win this one. I do like the Mets given a run and a half. That's plus 140 is more why I did it against the Braves. Braves are a good team. Mets at home. I like the way they're rolling right now. I'll take that the over eight runs in the White Sox and Texas Rangers game the night that's even money. So I like nine wins, there or more. And then the Milwaukee Brewers at home, they just got embarrassed by the Pittsburgh Pirates. They come home and they got the Cincinnati Reds coming in there minus 105 On the Run line, which isn't too bad just to flat out beat them. You have got to man up tonight at home and start taking care of teams you're supposed to be otherwise you're gonna lose that division lead. So come on brewers.

Mark

Wow, you got you got a minus 105 in there to give you your odds?

Shane

Well, I'd had to take the plus 140 and having the Mets give up in that 130 money line on the Cardinals to get there. But I did 4530 were the odds on all five combined. So that'll take home 231.43 if I am correct.

Mark

How about that? Alright!

Shane

Speaking of stuff that you know needs to hit. Mark. And I also like to give you the best Play of the Week. Best bet of the week. Go ahead and rattle off those stats.

Mark

Oh, I seem to be having technical difficulties. I don't think we can hear you anymore. All right, yeah. Yeah, you kept it, you're keeping it 100. As I say your six for six on the bet of the week. And I'm still sitting on Well, I'm not still sitting but I'm at four and six. I need you to lose a few weeks just so I can catch you.

Shane

It's bound to happen. Although last week I told everybody that I didn't feel the best about that new New York Mets game at Marlins minus one and a half. But let me tell you something this this week I'm not. You know, when you're on a team for so long, which you keep taking the Yankees, which I don't know why you don't learn this.

Mark

I'm a big dumb animal!

Shane

You are a big dumb animal there. For me, I'm thinking the Mitch train might run out just in case. And they are playing the Braves, which I know the Braves are pretty good. So they could legitimately just beat the Mets out right? My best bet this week, minus one and a half that run line on the Milwaukee Brewers against the Red's. And if they cannot beat the Reds at home by at least two runs or more. They should refund everybody's money that attended the game.

Mark

See now I went with the Orioles money line at minus 155 Because there's just no way I could put that in my parlay and get to the requirements that we have for that. So I see the Orioles winning that game straight out.

Shane

Really? No, no. Let me ask you this. Do we need to put like a special qualifier on our best bets of the week because I have a feeling you'll take like your best bets Alabama beating Furman University moneyline for minus 10,000.

Mark

I thought by then we're gonna be doing the pick six thing?

Shane

Well, we will but we still have our best bet of the week.

Mark

You want to see how long you can keep this gravy train going huh?

Shane

Just like the Arkansas promotion was a 250 or greater. That'll be our limit on the best bet.

Mark

Okay, well, I'm still I'm still there with this one.

Shane

Yeah, you've never done something that egregious but I can see college football season. Let me go. Oh, my goodness, look at this game.

Mark

I wonder if I could use a power boost to get an odds boost to get me over that 250.

Shane

Power boost money line to minus 250.

Mark

That's what I'm hoping. All right, we do have a Betly promotion coming up? You want to make sure you check the Betly app for all your preseason football promotions. So as we get closer to preseason, you want to check and they can start next week, I believe is what they told us. And check those apps for the preseason games that are going to be coming up you'll be able to advance wager on those as well. So check those out and keep an eye on it. They will change weekly.

Shane

That'll be good. And then hopefully we might have some breaking news for you on our next show.

Mark

That's right, pay attention Tennessee folks. That's right. That's right. All right. Well, what you got there, is that gonna wrap it up, isn't it?

Shane

Yeah, I think that wraps it up for this show here. A little disclaimer.

Mark
