Follow The Money Wins First-Ever Baseball Betting Pentathlon

Congratulations are in order for Mitch Moss and Pauly Howard, the winners of the VSiN Baseball Betting Pentathlon. The drama came right down to the final inning of the final game, as Rush Hour host Danny Burke suffered a potentially brutal bad beat, though we’ll never know if Brandon Belt would have knocked in a run or not. The Giants pinch hit for Belt with the bases loaded late in the game when Danny needed a Belt RBI to win.

We appreciate all of the engagement from our listeners and how much our hosts and participants got into the action. We’ll do this again sometime soon.
