The betting gods were good to us on Thursday so let’s see if Brad and Nate can keep it going for a Friday edition of the Fade Five. On the ice, Nate looks at the battle in New York between the Rangers and Islanders as well as a two-leg parlay involving two heavy favorites. The NBA player prop of the day is all about the green, as in Boston Celtics and Jason Tatum. And in the MLB, Brad likes the strikeout prop for Lance McCullers, Jr and the run total between the Reds and Diamondbacks. Plus, listen to at the end of today’s episode for a couple of bonus time picks.
Fade the Noise with Brad Evans
With plenty of afternoon baseball today, Brad is ready to do some day drinking and betting. But, to help you out, today’s Fade Five is set with hockey, baseball and NBA later in the day to give you time to place your bets. Nate starts things off with two NHL picks, including Winnipeg as a road underdog against Montreal. The NBA player prop of the day takes us out west for D’Aaron Fox and the Kings facing the Pistons. And finally in the MLB, Brad picks two AL match-ups with Toronto taking on the Angels and Houston facing Oakland.
Yesterday’s picks were a mixed bag so Brad is ready to start a new winning streak with today’s Fade Five. It is a Wednesday so the Hump Day Hockey picks are ready with Nate eyeing two late games including the Blues/Golden Knights total and the Kings/Coyotes nightcap. For the NBA player prop of the day, Brad thinks the match-up for DeAndre Ayton is a rough one against Utah. Then after splitting yesterday’s picks, Brad is back with two more MLB totals with the Orioles/Yankees and Diamondbacks/Rockies.
Congratulations to Baylor and to everyone that took the Bears in last night’s championship game. For today’s episode the guys have a few bonus picks for you to keep the good times going. Then the Fade Five features a NFL Draft future along with another two-leg parlay in the NHL from Nate. The NBA player prop of the day heads west with James Wiseman of the Warriors taking on the Bucks. Then Brad stays out west, looking at two run totals in the MLB tonight.
For the first time in two years, the NCAA will crown a men’s basketball champion tonight and Brad has plenty of picks in today’s podcast including a bonus line pick right out of the gate and an alt-line pick at the end of the podcast. On the ice, Nate has a two-team parlay as he looks to keep his weekend streak alive. In the MLB, Brad is eyeing the total in the Pirates/Reds game and today’s NBA player prop of the day features Moses Brown of the Thunder. Then, of course, the guys wrap up with their picks on the total and the spread and (spoiler alert) they disagree on both. Here’s hoping for another instant classic tonight!
