Badder Beats 21: Requiem for March Madness and Wrestlemania 35
As the sports betting world turns its attention to the finale of the 2019 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, one host trys to dig out of the smoldering crater that is his bracket while another gloats on the gilded journey to what could be a second-place finish in the company bracket pool. Badder Beats also looks back at a brutal week of predictions from our hosts before pivoting to the weekend's other major sporting event - Wrestlmania 35
Not deterred by last week's shortcoming, our intrepid hosts end the show with another stab at Final Four predictions followed by the latest in the increasingly popular (?) #OddBets segment. All that, and more, packed into an hour(ish) of the best in sports bet podcasting.
Episode 21 Time Stamps:
