It’s a Hump Day Hockey edition of the podcast so we start things off with two picks from Nate on the Fade Five on tonight’s slate, plus a bonus pick for the afternoon contest in Minnesota. Even after Monday’s swing and a miss, one pick has Nate going back to the well with the west coast two-leg parlay. For the NBA player prop of the day we drive down Narrative Street with Nicola Vucevic facing his old team. Finally, after hitting on both MLB picks yesterday, Brad is locked in on the Padres/Pirates and Mariners/Orioles games to round out today’s list.
Fade the Noise with Brad Evans
To kick off today’s episode, Brad shares his encounter yesterday with a bald eagle and decides it is a sign so the guys each make a patriotic bonus pick before saluting today’s Fade Five. The ice melted on Nate’s choices yesterday, but he looks to skate back into the win column with the Lightning/Predators and Panthers/Stars games today. Plus, he throws in a bonus player prop on newly-traded Taylor Hall. For the NBA player prop of the day Brad likes Kyle Lowry taking on the Hawks. Then two pitchers round out the five as Brad looks at the strikeout totals for Trevor Bauer against the Rockies and Lucas Giolito against the Indians. Stick around to the end for a couple more bonus picks. ‘MURICA!
There were too many bets available today that Brad likes to simply do the usual Fade Five, so today’s episode features quite a few bonus picks. Nate has two different two-leg parlays for you on the ice plus a hockey player prop. Brad expects a big performance from Freddy Peralta against the Cubs and also has his eye on the Padres to do some damage against the Pirates. Kelly Olynyk is our NBA player prop of the day facing the Phoenix Suns. And, as promised, plenty of bonus time picks packed into the podcast. Let’s start the week off with some wins!
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.
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.
