These are strange days – strange enough that a virtual beer pong tournament put on by Post Malone with a host of other celebrities seems more than par for the course.
The tournament, dubbed “The Ballina Cup” is expected to begin next week and will reportedly run for eight days with two matchups each evening. Each team playing from home to adhere to social distancing requirements and the teams will be entered into a bracket format. Each team’s entry fees will be donated to charities fighting COVID-19, while the winner will take home a trophy and a championship belt.
The Ballina Cup Celebrity Beer Pong Betting Odds
It looks like the sports world will be well represented in the field. From the football community, Danny Amendola, Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce, and Johnny Manziel are expected to play. Former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, Trevor Bauer, and Mike Clevinger might be good bets with their MLB background. Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin probably knows his way around a beer pong table, too.
Oddsmakers have Amendola as the early +450 favourite with Clevinger and Post Malone at +600. Barstool, NELK Boys, Seguin and Gronkowski all check in at +800. The biggest longshot on the board is Zack Bia at +1600.
Post Malone Beer Pong Prediction
It’s hard to look past Post Malone – no seriously. It’s not like he’d put on a tournament like this without being confident in his chances and he just won $50,000 in a tournament back in November. That said, we’ll go with some value and take Marcus Stroman at +1400.
