On the latest episode of Bet the Edge, Sara Perlman and Drew Dinsick are joined by PointsBet U.S. CEO Johnny Aitken to celebrate the addition of future NFL Hall of Famer Drew Brees to the PointsBet team. Aitken explains how Brees' new role with PointsBet will open up new opportunities for fans and sports bettors to interact with one of best quarterbacks of all time. 

MMA analyst Dave Ross joins the show to break down the action-packed card for UFC 264. Ross explains why Connor McGregor (+104) has a better chance of taking down Dustin Poirier (-130) in front of an expected packed house in Las Vegas. Sean O'Malley (-900) is a massive favorite over first-time UFC fighter Kris Mouhtino (+550), but Ross cautions bettors who are tempted to lay the big number on O'Malley.

Golf analyst Will Gray joins Sara in Lake Tahoe as they get ready for the American Century Championship. Will breaks down all the golf action including the Scottish Open and the John Deere Classic. 

Sara and Drew wrap up today's episode with their Edge of the Day plays. Drew expects Denmark to end England's clean sheet streak and is taking both teams to score (+116) in the semifinal matchup. Sara sees value in MLB and is taking Luis Garcia's under strikeout prop (6.5) as the Astros take on the Athletics.
