On the latest episode of Bet the Edge, Drew Dinsick dives into the swimming events for the Tokyo Olympics and explains how he's handicapping the upcoming competitions. Sara sees value in the San Francisco Giants (+700) to win the NL Pennant as the playoff race heats up across the league.

MLB insider Jon Heyman joins the show to discuss the current state of MLB and why he thinks three NL West teams will make the playoffs, but is still undecided if the Dodgers (-275) or Giants (+350) will win the division. He also discusses the recent success from the New York Yankees, but is skeptical they can keep it up against the Red Sox in their next series.

Steelers reporter Jenna Harner gives Sara and Drew the information she is hearing from the organization and if Ben Roethlisberger will be asked to do more for their offense or if the addition to Najee Harris means they will run the ball more. The Steelers are +400 to win the division, but Jenna thinks this team will face difficulties in an AFC North division with talent in Cincinatti, Baltimore and Cleveland.

Sara and Drew wrap up today's episode with their Edge of the Day plays. Drew explains why Russia is in a prime position to hit their over gold medal count (19.5) and Sara sees runs being scarce in the Yankees-Red Sox game and is backing the under (10).
