Proving that draft day sometimes comes before Memorial Day (and Carb Day always does), Badder Beats unleashes a deep, deep roster.
It’s a P1 (as in podcast and pole position).
New York Times best-selling author Matthew Berry, host of The Fantasy Show on ESPN+, comes aboard for musings on the new synergy between the fantasy and sports betting spheres, and his gig hosting the first-annual American Gambling Awards on June 18 at Monmouth Park.
How did Berry make the transition from Hollywood screenwriter to the face of DFS? Within.
Does Berry have a player he absolutely won’t select out of some personal reason? Within.
How did he land his cameo on the Avengers: Endgame? Within.
It’s worth your time.
And just days from the 103rd Indianapolis 500, 2016-winner Alexander Rossi chimes in on knowing who’s going to be a challenger in the greatest North American auto race and his opinions on how the bookmakers rate him. He also has thoughts on non-IndyCar regulars – like Fernando Alonso – soaking up all that Midwestern buzz.
In #OddBet, Brant James rakes Ryan Butler over the bricks and Butler reciprocates with a Champions League flutter.
