The contest consists of five bets made over a span of four days, starting today. Each weekday show will be a participant along with three VSiN baseball analysts.

Here are the rules:

  • Each bet is worth a hypothetical $100, the winner will be whoever has the most profit at the end of the week.
  • You don’t have to actually bet, but you do have to get lines from a licensed sportsbook
  • Each day there will be a specific bet you have to make.

Monday: A total

Tuesday: A favorite AND an underdog

Wednesday: A runline bet

Thursday: A prop bet

My Guys (Stormy Buonantony is on vacation) and Lombardi Line (multiple hosts throughout the week) won’t compete. Wes Reynolds, Adam Burke and Greg Peterson will compete as individual MLB betting experts.

We’ll announce the winner on Follow the Money at 6 a.m. ET Friday. We’ll track the bets on this page.
