The weather is beautiful outside, there aren't many sports to bet on and we've reached the midway point of the 2022 MLB season -- what better time to have a little competition for our hosts here at VSiN?
The inaugural 2022 VSiN Baseball Betting Pentathlon is here!
From Monday through Thursday this week (July 11-14), each show group will make one MLB pick per day from the following criteria.
Here are the rules:
- Each bet is worth a hypothetical $100, the winner will be whoever has the most profit at the end of the week.
- You don't have to actually bet, but you do have to get lines from a licensed sportsbook
- Each day there will be a specific bet you have to make.
Monday (7/11): Total
Tuesday (7/12): Favorite and an underdog
Wednesday (7/13): Team on the runline
Thursday (7/14): Prop bet
Each bet will be made from a line available at that time and then recorded in our official Google Doc.
We officially have a winner!
It was quite a sweat, but the Follow The Money crew of Mitch Moss and Pauly Howard pulled out the win late Thursday night after wagering on Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Corbin Burnes to have 9 strikeouts and the Brewers to win at + 220. Burnes finished with 10 Ks and the Brewers won 3-2 in 10 innings over the San Francisco Giants. If Burnes had 11 or more strikeouts, The Night Cap, would've cashed a + 700 ticket.
The VSiN Baseball Betting Pentathlon is coming down to the wire, with five show groups over $140 in profit through three days. Which show group will take home the title?
It was another good day for the Odds On show group, with a 2-0 record. Both of their plays (Braves -180 ML vs. Mets, Tigers + 110 ML vs. Royals) came through, leading to a 3-0 overall record. They sit atop the standings after two days.
After going with the Under 7.5 in Phillies-Cardinals last night at -105 odds, the Odds On show group of Mike Palm and Amal Shah has an early lead in the competition. A Numbers Game's Gill Alexander (Diamondbacks-Giants Under 8, -110) and the team from The Edge (Mets-Braves Under 7, -110) are tied for second place after one pick.
