The show will feature news, data, and analysis, mixed with legendary sports and betting stories, all designed to educate and entertain bettors and sports fans at all levels. The show pairs expert opinions from nationally known analysts with tales of sports and betting history focused on iconic wins, memorable upsets, bad beats and stories of odds makers and risk takers.
Veteran FOX5 News Anchor Dave Hall will serve as host for BEAT THE ODDS. He will be joined in the studio by expert handicappers Jack Ross (aka “Fat Jack”) and Ted Sevransky (aka “Teddy Covers”), along with Super Bowl champion Brandon Marshall and roving reporter Mariah Janos.
Jack Ross has been a leading sports analyst for 20 years. His national weekly radio show “The Fat Jack Sports Hour” can be found on stations across the US. He also is a regular contributor on SIRIUS XM. Ted Sevransky, known as “Teddy Covers,” is a professional sports bettor and radio and television analyst, who is regularly featured on WagerTalk.com. Brandon Marshall won his ring at Super Bowl 50 as a linebacker playing for the Denver Broncos when they defeated the New England Patriots.
FOX5 KVVU-TV will partner with Emmy Award-winning production company Tupelo Media Group (formerly known as Tupelo Honey) to produce the weekly program. Gray owns both FOX5 KVVU and Tupelo Media Group. The show’s executive producers are FOX5 Vice President and General Manager, Michael Korr; Tupelo Media Group CEO, Cary Glotzer; and Tupelo Media Group CTO John Servizzi.
“BEAT THE ODDS showcases two of the most popular aspects of sports for the public: betting analysis and compelling storytelling,” said Korr.
“BEAT THE ODDS is a different type of sports betting show,” added Glotzer. “It will give sports bettors top-notch analysis and information, and it’ll be very entertaining, with features on sports history and how sports influence culture. It’s why we developed the show – to create a format that really engages sports and betting fans.”
