A potential downside to the uptick of sports betting programming coming our way is that some of the hosts may not actually be very good at picking winners.
Clay Travis just read that and said, “Hold my beer…”
Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage and FS1’s new daily gambling show Lock It In had an incredible, bizzaro-world DiMaggio streak going: he had incorrectly picked 13 straight MLB games. He was still looking for his first winner going into Wednesday’s show.
This elicited the very best out of his Twitter followers. Some gems included:
Are you the guy on the mathematically impossible 12-game losing #MLB streak?

How many baseball games have you lost in a row now?

Clay can’t pick his nose #fish

If picking winners was easy, everybody would be doing it. However, picking 13 losers in a row is almost mathematically impossible.
That all changed for Clay Wednesday night, as his Yankees moneyline pick hit in convincing fashion.
The Yankees beat the A’s 7-2 to advance out of the AL Wild Card round to face the Boston Red Sox. Now, two anxious fan bases wait in abject horror hoping that Travis doesn’t back them for the series.
