Today on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell, Jonas Knox and RJ Bell are in to discuss whether or not the NBA and MLB champions deserve to have an asterisk next to their claim. Steve says the NBA should not have one because it is a continued season, the number of games allow for the validity, while the MLB shortened season should not count because it is unrealistic. Steve also discusses the odds makers possibly making a mistake when setting the NBA odds by not taking into no home court advantage playing in Orlando, citing the Lakers, Bucks and Clippers odds all remaining similar as they were back in March before the Pandemic.
