Stand Outs and Upsets
The Kansas City Outlaws were the clear standouts. Their pre-event odds of +580 did not suggest they’d come out on top, yet they managed a 3-0 record. Their triumph over the Texas Rattlers in the intense face-off was a pivotal moment. Bob Mitchell’s 84.75-point ride on Macho Man, especially after a hiatus since his last PBR Teams’ qualified ride, highlighted the team’s depth and resilience.
The Oklahoma Freedom and Arizona Ridge Riders, both with modest expectations, delivered commendable performances as well. The Freedom, in particular, with long pre-event odds of +680, showcased an impressive 2-1 event record and a hard-fought 2nd place finish, an accomplishment that accentuates their latent potential. Similarly, the Ridge Riders delivered an impressive show for their hometown fans, posting a 2-1 record and climbing from 6th to a commendable 5th place in the overall standings.
Conversely, the Austin Gamblers were a notable upset. As the favorites with +360 odds to win it all and a reputation of consistent dominance, their 1-2 event stumble was unexpected. Ramon de Lima’s 85-point ride on Happy Hour was a lone highlight in an otherwise underwhelming performance for the top-ranked team.
The Kansas City Outlaws were the champions of the Ridge Rider Days, bringing lucrative rewards to their backers. A $20 bet on the Outlaws, with their pre-event odds of +580, yielded a handsome $116 in winnings. This underscores the power of informed betting in navigating the unpredictable nature of professional bull riding, turning insights into tangible financial gains.
