On the latest episode of Bet the Edge, Sara Perlman and Drew Dinsick preview what bettors should expect for Friday's slate, as well as the Kentucky Derby.

The dynamic duo kicks off the day by bringing in PointsBet's Head Trader Jay Croucher. Jay blueprints if the Philadelphia 76ers have a chance to get back in the series against the Miami Heat (-3) now that they are down 2-0. Jay also explains what to expect in the swing game between the Phoenix Suns (-1) and Dallas Mavericks. PointsBet's point man details where bettors can gain an edge in Saturday's showdowns between the Boston Celtics (2) and Milwaukee Bucks, and the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors (-7).

NBC Sports Edge UFC Analyst Ike Feldman joins the show to break down the best looks of UFC 274. Ike is locked in on Justin Gaejthe (+140) and his ferocious calf kicks against white hot Champion Charles Oliveira. Ike also explains why Rose Namajunas (-210) is worth backing vs. Carla Esparza with the heavy chalk. Finally, Ike breaks down the lightweight bout between Michael Chandler (-375) and Tony Ferguson (+290), and why Ferguson is a great bet to steal the decision (+650) as a heavy underdog.


Sara and Drew wrap up the show with their Edge of the Day. Drew targets the total (219) between the Suns and Mavericks, while Sara eyes the Heats (-3).
