The Action Network’s own Three Donkeys are all near the top of the odds list. Peter Jennings is the early favorite at +450, followed immediately by Jonathan Bales at +500. Adam Levitan is not too far behind at +550.
Rounding out the top six are Action Network employees Sean Koerner (+500) and Paul Lo Duca (+700) and poker and DFS pro Brandon Adams (+600).
In the bottom half of the field, all at +900, are Pete Manzinelli, Scott Blumstein, Joey Ingram, Matt Brown, Michael Mooney and Action Network employee BlackJack Fletcher.
Excluding the events in which everybody is posted at +600, only three men are favorites or co-favorites for more than one event: Levitan, BlackJack and Blumstein.
In case you’re blissfully unaware, the three teams are:
- Team Bales: Blumstein, Brown, Koerner
- Team Jennings: Adams, BlackJack, Lo Duca
- Team Levitan: Ingram, Manz, Mooney
Excluding the events in which each team is +150, Team Jennings is the lone favorite in three events and is co-favored in two events. Team Bales is the lone favorite in two events and is co-favored in one event, while Team Levitan is not the lone favorite in any event but is co-favored in three events.
Here are the rest of the goodies you can wager on:
Levitan vs. Adams Tennis Side Bet

Bales vs. Jennings Pull-up Side Bet

DFS High Score (DraftKings)
- Over 195.5 points: -120
- Under 195.5 points: -120
I’m no DFS wunderkind, but this expectation seems lofty for 24 total lineups over two slates, no?
