On Monday’s SportsBIT, Teddy and Pauly break down the Warriors thorough dismantling of the Cavs in Game 2 of the NBA Finals and check the MLB Odds board, so watch on!

Andre Igoudala – last year’s Finals MVP, and priced as high as 50:1 to win the award in back-2-back years – is now +49 in his 64 minutes of court time in this series. Draymond Green ate the Cavs defense for breakfast in Game 2. In each of the first two games, the Warriors have gone on huge second half runs with Steph Curry on the bench, demonstrating their elite level depth. 

Meanwhile, the Cavs supporting cast around LeBron has been a no-show again this year. Cavs other than LeBron have a truly ugly ratio of 14 combined assists vs. 21 turnovers in this series. Cleveland has now lost seven straight against the Warriors dating back to their 2-1 lead in the Finals last year, and they’ve failed to crack 100 in each of their last nine meetings against the Warriors. Expect a detailed breakdown of Game 3 on Wednesday’s edition of SportsBIT.


 

Throughout the hot summer months, Teddy and Pauly break down a handful of games on the MLB Odds in their Big Game Breaddown segment of the show. Today’s breakdowns (Mets – Pirates and Mariners – Indians) offer two prevailing themes for discussion. First, how much should bettors penalize starting pitchers for one bad outing? Mets starter Steven Matz and Mariners starter James Paxton both go under the microscope in that regard.

And secondly, Pauly and Teddy discuss whether the concept of ‘letdowns’ exists in daily sports like baseball the same way it exists in non-daily sports like football. If there’s going to be a letdown tonight, it might well be in Seattle; a game where Teddy and Pauly put their 80% Play of the Day run over the past two weeks on the line.

Get your daily dose of football as Pauly and Teddy continue their detailed NFL team previews. Today, they break down the 2016 Arizona Cardinals, lined as an elite 10 win team. The discussion starts with Carson Palmer, who set career highs with an 82.1 QBR last year, a 104.6 QB rating, an 8.7 yards per attempt average, and 35 TD’s. At 36 years old, coming off a season in which he was healthy enough to start all 16 games, there’s only one direction that Palmer’s numbers are likely to trend this year….and it’s not up!
