On the latest episode of Bet The Edge, hosts Sara Perlman and Drew Dinsick are joined by Steve Kornacki who says he has found a few parallels when it comes to handicapping horse races and election coverage. He breaks down the latest odds and explains why the favorite in this race, Essential Quality, could have some trouble.

Horse racing analyst Matt Bernier also stops by to give his insight on the contenders at Churchill Downs.

With the NFL Draft in full swing, John Daigle and Thor Nystrom dive into the latest Day 2 odds and props, including which QB will be the next one off the board.

And of course, Sara and Drew give their Edge of the Day plays for Friday, including a matchup between the Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays.
