On the latest episode of Bet the Edge, Sara Perlman and Drew Dinsick give into the Coach of the Year futures market for the NFL season and explain why Urban Meyer (+2800) and Arthur Smith (+1600) have the best value on the board.

NBC Sports EDGE's Kenny Ducey stops by to give out his best plays in the MLB on this Tuesday. He likes the Rockies (+165) and Angels (+125) to get the upset win, plus with a left-hander on the mound, Kenny explains why the Yankees (-160) are a fair play at their given money line price. 

Speculation continues in Houston about QB Deshaun Watson and his status for the 2021 NFL season. Radio personality Matt Thomas dissects the Texans' schedule under the assumption Watson does not play, and thinks it's difficult for the team to get over their win total (4).

Sara and Drew wrap up today's episode with their Edge of the Day plays. Sara expects the Phillies to cool down tonight when the Dodgers and Max Scherzer come into Philly and is backing Los Angeles on the run line (+100). Drew is headed back to the ATP Toronto where he sees value in the Over games (22.5) between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Ugo Humbert.
