Badder Beats

Sep 26, 2019

After two-time IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden scores the intro with his way-back prediction of glory, hosts Brant James and Ryan Butler are joined by South Point oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro and’s Dr. David Chao. 

Vaccaro has yarns about how the wagering public has changed, and who’s he’d handicap as the next president, if it was legal in the United States, of course. 

Chao pops in to discuss analyzing sports injuries and how his service could benefit bettors.
