Calvin and Brandon kick off another episode of the Sharp Edges podcast with a recap of last week’s action, including the Deontay Wilder/Tyson Fury “fight”. Then Calvin and Brandon look at some Thursday night college basketball games and also discuss some futures bets for the NCAA championship. A quick look at some XFL and then a few fights from this weekend’s UFC card close out the show.
Calvin and Brandon recap the Wilder/Fury fight and how they both failed to make a good read on the fight. Fury dominated Wilder from the start so bad that Calvin doesn’t even consider it a fight as much as he does a beatdown. Fury is the top dog in boxing and Calvin and Brandon both look forward to what comes next in his career.
The college basketball card starts off with some Big Ten action between Ohio State and Nebraska. The Cornhuskers have struggled all year and Ohio State has been up and down, so can the Buckeyes cover the big spread? In the PAC-12, Calvin’s darkhorse team Arizona takes on USC. For the first time in a while, Calvin and Brandon have strong opposite opinions on a game. Who wins this one?
The next college basketball game comes out on the west coast as Saint Mary’s takes on Santa Clara. Santa Clara won the first meeting, at Saint Mary’s, can the Gaels get revenge or will they fall again? The final game of the episode is another PAC-12 game as in-state rivals Oregon State and Oregon battle it out. The Beavers upset the Ducks in the last game and now the Ducks are 10-point favorites. Can they really cover that high of a spread? As a bonus, Calvin and Brandon look at some of the NCAA futures bets and whom they think provide some solid value. Also, what are some good strategies for betting on futures?
Three weeks of the XFL season are in the books. Viewership is continuing to drop but both Calvin and Brandon like to tune in on weekends and check out some games. Calvin has two picks he likes this weekend for some small dough bets. Brandon, on the other hand, is going to continue to spectate without any action, for now.
Another weekend another UFC card. This weekend it is UFC Fight Night 169. The card isn’t the strongest but there is a title fight and Brandon has a few fights that he has his eye on. After looking into a few fights, Calvin and Brandon bring out their best bets of the week. They each have one UFC pick that they agree on and then their own CBB game. Listen in and get some winners. CBB formula picks are 20-10-1 over the last five episodes, so don’t miss them!
