On the latest episode of Bet the Edge, Sara Perlman and Drew Dinsick take a look at the current futures for MLB postseason and are in agreement that the Brewers (+350) have the best path to represent the National League in the World Series. 

Head Trader at PointsBet Jay Croucher joins the show to discuss how the public is wagering when it comes to MLB futures. The public is aligned with Drew and Sara's thinking with the Brewers, as they are the most heavily-bet team to come out of the National League. He also explains how the sportsbook sets the future prices based off current play, but also how the playoff bracket appears to look heading into October. 

Croucher also dives into how bettors are targeting the college football market. The likes of Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson are the most bet teams, but they are taking some early money as well on a few Heisman hopefuls, including Spencer Rattler and D.J. Uiagalelei.

Leila Rahimi of 670 The Score in Chicago breaks down what's happening at Chicago's training camp and when NFL fans should expect to see Justin Fields become the starting quarterback. The Bears over/under win total is set at 7.5 games and Leila explains what has to go right if bettors are backing the over this season.

Drew and Sara wrap up today's episode with their Edge of the Day plays. Sara is backing the Over (9) between the White Sox and Athletics, while Drew sees value on Felix Auger-Aliassime (+152) to upset Matteo Berrettini at ATP Cincinnati.
