Our last single digit episode of B2W is here and it is packed with everything coming at you this weekend: NFL, college football, boxing, MLB postseason and much more ...
In perhaps the most diverse Bet to Wynn yet, read below for all the highlights of Ep. 9!
Claudia riding a heater, Joe misses on Ekeler
Bet to Wynn’s finest, Joe and Claudia are back at it to recap their bets over the previous week. Claudia was wise to take the OVER on Justin Herbert’s MNF passing attempts, hitting her mark right over the hook. Joe on the other hand, had great promise with his prop bet: OVER Ausin Ekeler receiving yards. Despite an active first half in the passing game, Ekeler produce none in the second half, leaving Joe on the wrong side
Joe and Claudia carve through each of the divisional series matchups, and also offer insights into the further rounds of the playoffs. Joe likes a certain team from the midwest to win the national league pennant. Claudia, of course, is rooting for her Red Sox, but understands the uphill battle they have facing AL East champion Rays.
Giants and Dodgers? Oh yes, Joe and Claudia dive into this divisional series between arch-rivals. The Dodgers have had the shortest odds to win the World Series the entire season, and are still favored to beat San Francisco, despite succeeding the NL West to the Giants. Claudia and Joe are in agreement here. Taking the Giants, who won 107 games this season, at plus-money, is too good an offer to pass up; they are riding with the boys from the Bay.
Sporting News' Editor of Combat Sports, Andreas Hale, hops on to talk fighting
With a colossal clash of heavyweights on the horizon here in Las Vegas, Andreas Hale (editor at Sporting News, host of The Corner podcast) stops by B2W to bring some much needed ring insight. Fury-Wilder III will be a WBC title fight, so the stakes are huge.
Additionally, Hale enlightens listeners on the four different sanctions of boxing (WBC, WBO, WBA, and IBF) and what it means to be a unified champion. Hale continues by breaking down the skillsets of the “Gypsy King” and the “Bronze Bomber,” and citing reasons he is going with his pick. Hint: it’s nothing shocking, but the analytical detail Hale goes into is fantastic.
NFL Week 5 deep dive
And of course, all the NFL Week 5 coverage is here. The Packers, Bengals, and Cowboys all seem to be the darlings for Joe and Claudia. With last night’s game between the Seahawks and Rams, the week has already gotten off to an interesting start, with dislocated fingers being an early theme (a trend that hopefully doesn’t continue).
Also, Claudia Bellofatto offers an insightful analysis of the upcoming Bills at Chiefs game, where Kansas City is currently laying three points. This matchup features likely the two most live arms in the NFL, and will absolutely be must-see-television.
