As much as gambling is frowned upon in Major League Baseball, it doesn’t stop high profile fans like these from doing it.

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck and NYPD Commissioner William J. Bratton placed a friendly bet involving sandwiches as their beloved Dodgers and Mets face each other in the first round of the 2015 playoffs.

If the Dodgers win, Bratton has to pick up the tab during lunch at New York’s famous Katz Deli, according to Dodgerverse.

If by some miracle the Mets win (Full disclosure, a Dodger fan is writing this article), Beck will treat Bratton to a pastrami sandwich from Los Angeles’ famous Langer’s Deli.

In other words, no matter who wins, the two officers will be eating some delicious sandwiches, the location will just vary.

This isn’t the first time these two put lunch on the line, as in 2014, they placed the same wager on the Stanley Cup Finals when the LA Kings beat the NY Rangers.
