BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 17  

We've got one more show to go this week and we're making it a good one. Host Adam Burke will start things off today with a lot of things to talk about. Major League Baseball season is coming up and that'll be a quick topic of conversation. We've talked all week about the great NHL betting spots available this weekend and those will be revisited on this Friday show. We've also got a college basketball team to follow over the next several days to find some situational betting spots. It'll be an all-encompassing segment from our beloved host. College basketball writer Chris Stone, who contributes to both Fansided and Rush The Court, joins us to preview a big weekend in college hoops. There are some very important games for seeding purposes, like Kansas at Baylor and Virginia at North Carolina that we'll discuss. The guys will also talk about the SEC, Pac-12, and Big Ten as we head down the stretch run. It's always a joy to get Chris on the air and we'll have plenty to discuss.

It's that time again for our Thursday Meeting show. Much like our Tuesday Meeting broadcast, we welcome two professionals to the airwaves. First, Brad Powers of BradPowersSports.com joins host Adam Burke for the weekly "Powers Picks" segment. Adam and Brad will discuss some of his early March Madness thoughts with his projected Final Four teams and also some teams that don't seem to be getting enough respect in bracket projections. They'll also talk about overrated and underrated teams, some factors in the betting market, and preview some big games coming up this weekend. Ralph Michaels of WagerTalk.com is the other professional handicapper that joins us on Thursdays. We'll talk more college basketball with him as we dig into some of the situational and technical aspects of the betting card. Do certain situations carry a bit more weight at this time of the season? Travel concerns are certainly prevalent in February as teams start to wind down their regular seasons. How about pressure on teams that aren't accustomed to it? We'll have you covered for the next couple weeks and beyond on this edition of the show, so please join us.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 15  

We hope you're ready fore some golf analysis. See what we did there? We'll fire up today's edition of BangTheBook Radio with some golf betting advice from Wes Reynolds during our Wednesday Wagering with Wes Reynolds segment. We'll take a look at the Genesis Open, formerly the Northern Trust Open and Nissan Open, at Riviera Country Club with the strongest field of the season to date. We'll also chat with Wes about changes to his handicapping in the NBA and college basketball because things are definitely a bit different throughout the rest of the month. With Kyle Hunter still ailing, host Adam Burke will take the floor for the latter part of today's show. He'll teach all handicappers a very valuable lesson about betting and keeping an even keel. He'll also talk about how things are shaping up for our hockey situational betting spots this week and keep going with some baseball betting analysis as we draw closer to the season. We've got plenty of things to talk to, so come on and join us!

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 14  

Those that have been listening to BangTheBook Radio for a while should be able to take their significant others out for a nice steak dinner on Valentine's Day instead of one of the chains. Hopefully we can keep that momentum going with some tips, tricks, and tools of the trade from two professionals here on our Tuesday Meeting show. We'll start it off with Bryan Leonard of WagerTalk.com for this week's Sports Wagering Talk segment. College basketball and the NBA are in the spotlight this time of year, but we'll work in a little bit of MLB stuff with some win total discussions. Handicapping mentalities change in both the NBA and college hoops now with the All-Star Break and the positioning for the conference tournaments. We'll discuss with Bryan. We're also going Hunting for Winners with Sports Cheetah of WagerTalk.com here on today's show. With Cheetah, on a segment that was recorded on Monday, we talked about how to handicap the games leading into the All-Star Break and if anything should change. We also touched on small sample size handicapping in both the NBA and college basketball. Cheetah also shared an exclusive free pick on the three-point shooting contest at the NBA All-Star Game.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 13  

Let's get it started with a new week of BangTheBook Radio. We're going to focus on the daily winter professional leagues here today, as Kyle Hunter is unable to join us due to a losing battle with bronchitis and laryngitis. Our first guest of the week will be the outstanding basketball writer Philip Rossman-Reich, whose work can be found at a lot of places, but primarily at his personal site Orlando Magic Daily. We'll talk about the implications of the All-Star Break and the Trade Deadline with Philip and also about some teams whose stock could be rising when play resumes later next week. The silver lining to Kyle being unable to join us (aside from the fact that he'll join the show on Wednesday) is that host Adam Burke has a ton of hockey stuff to discuss. This is the best week we've seen in a long time from a situational betting standpoint. Adam will talk about several spots, including some good money line parlay picks and a whole lot more. NHL betting may not be something you do a lot, but this week has potential to be excellent.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 10  

We've got one more show coming your way this week on BangTheBook Radio. We'll actually tap back into the BangTheBook Mailbag today to address a couple more listener questions. Audience participation is a really important element of what we do, so it's great to hear from the listeners. That means that we have a lot of host Adam Burke coming on today's show. One great timing element for today is that Atlantis Race & Sports Book in Reno, Nevada has released MLB season win totals, so we can get some ideas for what the numbers will look like in the market when others open. A listener arranged to call in and ask some Major League Baseball questions, so we'll check about those and a whole lot more as we close the book on another week of BangTheBook Radio.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 9  

Our Thursday mega show is coming your way with about 90 minutes of content to get you ready for this weekend and beyond. We'll start things off with Brad Powers of BradPowersSports.com for this week's "Powers Picks" segment. The focus is now on college basketball for Brad, as he keeps working in the background on college football and the upcoming NFL campaign. We'll talk about his contrarian betting styles and talk about the different ways that handicapping basketball can work in both college and the NBA. Next up, Ralph Michaels of WagerTalk.com joins us for this week's College Basketball Capping segment. We'll talk about another round of upsets in the college basketball world and also take a look ahead to the weekend with his top situational and technical plays of the weekend. College basketball is unique in that there are wide gaps in terms of opponents. Should we still be taking the full body of work into account? Is it best to limit it to conference play at this stage of the game? Jay Primetown of MMAOddsbreaker.com is back on the broadcast with an in-depth look at UFC 208. This event is in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center and features a main event between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie for the new women's featherweight title. Anderson Silva and Glover Teixeira are also on this card, so we'll get some picks and predictions from Jay to help you bang the books this weekend.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 8  

It's time for a Hump Day edition of BangTheBook Radio. Host Adam Burke will have the floor for a while today with only one guest able to make it on to the broadcast, but he has plenty of things to discuss. We'll open up the BangTheBook Mailbag for some listener questions to kick off today's show. We've got several talking points from our listeners, including personal routines for deciding what games to bet on, the terminology of betting, and also whether or not it's a good idea to buy points. These are all things that bettors need to keep in mind, so it's a great time to talk about them. Wes Reynolds joins us for our Wednesday Wagering with Wes Reynolds segment. The guys will chat about derivative betting in college basketball and the NBA and ways that it can be really profitable when applied correctly. Betting first halves and second halves as opposed to full games or taking a full game position and limiting a little bit of risk with some half wagering is a bankroll management skill and we'll chat with Wes about that on today's show. We'll also break down the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which features an enormous field of 156 pros and 156 amateurs, including some well-known celebrities.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 7  

The "Tuesday Meeting" returns this week on BangTheBook Radio with a lot of college basketball discussion. We'll start things off with Bryan Leonard of WagerTalk.com, as he joins host Adam Burke to recap how Super Bowl LI went for him. The guys will also discuss bankroll management techniques and ways to stay organized and ahead of the game. Managing a bankroll is one of the most important things in this industry and it's also one of the hardest concepts for handicappers to grasp. We'll do our best to grasp it with Bryan during this segment. We'll also talk college hoops and take an in-depth look at the MAC. During our Hunting for Winners segment with Sports Cheetah, we also talked about bankroll management techniques. This was recorded on Monday night, so it can be a nice way to get some good talking points for the segment with Bryan as well. Old school meets new school on this Tuesday Meeting show, but one of the best things about Bryan is that he has adjusted. Some handicappers get left out in the cold because they don't adjust. Anyway, with Cheetah, we also talked about college basketball and finding value in smaller conferences, where market entry is a really big deal.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 6  

Well, the Super Bowl is in the books and it was definitely one for the ages. Now, the sports calendar moves forward without football for the next six months, so it's time to focus in on everything else. We'll start by taking a look around the NBA with Philip Rossman-Reich of Orlando Magic Daily. We'll cover a variety of teams and topics with Philip to get everybody up to speed on what's happening in the Association. The Dallas Mavericks and Indiana Pacers are two teams we'll cover and also take a look at what is wrong with the Charlotte Hornets. We'll welcome professional handicapper Kyle Hunter of HunterSportsPicks.com back to the broadcast today for this week's Handicapping the Hardwood segment for college basketball. The guys will cover a long list of games and topics on this edition, including some great situational betting spots that will stand out as potential free plays. We'll also discuss the long hours it takes to be a handicapper with one of the hardest working guys in the business. A great betting system to help listeners organize the card will be something all listeners want to hear.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 3  

Our final show of the week to get you ready for the Big Game will be on Friday of Super Bowl week. We'll start things out with this week's version of The Odds Report with Brent, a bookmaker from DSI Sportsbook. We'll get some insight from Brent on how things are going on the other side of the counter as he shares with us what the sharp bets are for the side and total on Super Bowl LI. We'll also get some betting figures and some sharp action for the prop betting market as well. There are so many prop bets available out there and a lot of sharp players prefer these over the game line. Rob Pizzola of Prediction Machine joins us once again this week for a comprehensive breakdown of Super Bowl LI. The simulator has come up with a side and a final score prediction based on 50,000 simulations, so Rob will tell us what those results are and if that yields any betting value one way or another in the game. A props package is also available with Prediction Machine, but we'll get Rob to talk a little bit about some of the props that the machine likes and also about some of his personal opinions for the New England Patriots vs. the Atlanta Falcons game.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 2  

Super Bowl week continues here on BangTheBook Radio with our "Thursday Meeting" show. The famed "Tuesday Meeting" in Las Vegas features some of the best handicappers in the industry and we have one of those on our Tuesday shows, but we also have one on our Thursday shows. We'll start out with this week's Powers Picks segment with Brad Powers of BradPowersSports.com. We'll chat with Brad about Super Bowl LI and how he views the line and the total for the game. We'll also dig into his prop bets to see what he's looking for and what his approach is. Normally, we focus solely on college basketball with Ralph Michaels of WagerTalk.com, but we'll check in with him about his Super Bowl prop bets this week before we get to the hardwood. Ralph's College Basketball Capping segment is so good and it features so many terrific elements of handicapping college hoops. Ralph will share his technical and situational plays of the week with us and the guys will also break down some of the recent results and look for opportunities to bet on or against teams.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast February 1  

We'll keep the Super Bowl theme rolling this week on BangTheBook Radio with our Wednesday show. First, host Adam Burke will be joined by Joe Everett of NFL Draft Bible for our Week in Review & Super Bowl LI Preview. We'll chat with Joe about his experiences on the draft scouting circuit after watching the Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl. Then, we'll get into Super Bowl LI and isolate the matchups that could decide the game. Joe's scouting and evaluation background will shed some light on those key prop bets and also help your Super Bowl LI handicapping for the side and total. Our Wednesday Wagering with Wes Reynolds segment will also key in on Super Bowl LI with some of the prop bets that Wes is looking to play in advance of the big game. We'll also chat with Wes about this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open, one of the most enjoyable events of the PGA Tour season at TPC Scottsdale. Wes will share his picks and predictions for that event.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast January 31  

Our "Tuesday Meeting" show during Super Bowl week is some can't-miss audio. Two professional handicappers join us to share their thoughts on Super Bowl LI, the prop betting market, and some important tips for those that may be heading out to Las Vegas for the big game. First, we start with Bryan Leonard, professional handicapper from WagerTalk.com, for this week's Sports Wagering Talk segment. Host Adam Burke will speak with Bryan about his thoughts on the side, the total, and about how there hasn't been a whole lot of line movement as of yet. They'll also talk about Bryan's approach to props and some that he has played so far. Our Hunting for Winners segment with Sports Cheetah is fantastic this week. It was recorded on Monday, so we can tell you with complete certainty that it is going to be extremely helpful to listeners. After discussing the side and total, the guys really focused in on prop bets and all the technical and mathematical aspects of those betting opportunities. This is a lot of great information that you can carry with you for a very long time for future Super Bowls.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast January 30  

We're ready to go with a new week of BangTheBook Radio. Host Adam Burke will have a lot of college basketball content on the first show of the Super Bowl Week to make sure that we spend enough time on that sport before we really get heavy into Super Bowl LI. Our first guest this week will be Chris Stone of Rush The Court, whose work can also be found over at Fansided and The Step Back. We'll recap what we saw over the weekend with the Big 12/SEC Showdown and also take a deep dive into the Big Ten for college hoops. Previews of Wisconsin at Illinois, Maryland at Ohio State, and Baylor at Kansas will all be on this segment. With Kyle Hunter unable to join us due to a sick family, Adam will carry the remainder of the show. We do have some notes to chat about that Kyle sent over, but Adam will mostly look at some NHL and Major League Baseball stuff as we start looking ahead. The NHL All-Star Break ends tomorrow and Spring Training starts in about two weeks, so it's time to start focusing on those leagues and some of those betting opportunities.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast January 27  

We've got an excellent show coming your way to wrap up this week on BangTheBook Radio. Host Adam Burke will first be joined by Philip Rossman-Reich of Orlando Magic Daily for a look around the NBA. The guys will discuss the recent friction with the Cleveland Cavaliers and also with the Chicago Bulls by relying on Philip's experience in covering teams and being around players and coaches. They'll also look at some division prop bets and talk about the play of some recent teams like the Philadelphia 76ers and the Denver Nuggets. Our last guest of the week is a good one, as Rob Pizzola of Prediction Machine joins the broadcast for the second time. We'll talk with Rob about the early Super Bowl LI line with the New England Patriots favored over the Atlanta Falcons and talk about what the simulator will have in store for next week. We'll also get Rob's thoughts on the NHL betting market now that we've reached the All-Star Break. Adam and Rob share a similar passion for advanced metrics and regression analysis handicapping, so the guys will expand on those two topics.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast January 26  

Two professional handicappers join us for what we're calling the "Thursday Meeting" show. Host Adam Burke will start things off with Brad Powers of BradPowersSports.com for this week's Powers Picks segment. There's a lot to chat about and we can do some more catching up with Brad about college basketball. The discussion will start with a look at Super Bowl LI and the line between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. Then we'll get Brad's thoughts on college basketball market entry and some of the things that he uses to his advantage to make money. Ralph Michaels of WagerTalk.com will continue the college basketball discussion for us with his thoughts for the upcoming weekend. Ralph and Adam will discuss some of the ups and downs that we've seen here in recent days and weeks for some teams, as the #1 has fallen a couple times lately.

Donald Cerrone and Jorge Masvidal are also on the card.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast January 25  

We're really excited for this edition of BangTheBook Radio. We'll shake off those midweek blues with two great guests ready to give a lot of important handicapping advice. First, host Adam Burke will be joined by a good friend of his that used to be an oddsmaker in Las Vegas named Matt Lindeman. Matt will pull the curtain back on what happens on the other side of the counter by explaining what goes into the process of setting a line. Do we, as bettors, have misconceptions about how it all works? Is it as complex as we think? You may be very surprised by what Matt has to say and by some of the advice that he has for our listeners based on what he learned and saw from the other side. Our Wednesday Wagering with Wes Reynolds segment should be a good one. We'll get some initial thoughts from him on the line for Super Bowl LI and discuss where the line may go as we get closer to kickoff. Wes will also share some insights with us for this week's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, which has one of the strongest fields we've seen in quite some time, with guys like Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama, and the return of Tiger Woods.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast January 24  

Our "Tuesday Meeting" show is back at full strength this week with two excellent guests and the type of analysis and perspective that you have come to expect from BangTheBook Radio. Host Adam Burke will get today's show underway with the great Bryan Leonard of WagerTalk.com to discuss the early Super Bowl LI line and some of the challenges that bettors face during the basketball seasons. The New England Patriots are favored by three over the Atlanta Falcons with the highest total that we've seen for a Super Bowl, so Bryan will share his thoughts on the line and forecast where the number might go. On the basketball side, we'll talk about market entry and about not losing faith in a team that failed you. This week's Hunting for Winners with Sports Cheetah segment is absolutely phenomenal. Adam spoke with Cheetah last night and recorded this segment, so we can tell you that with complete confidence. There were a lot of topics discussed on this segment, including the work, time, and effort it takes to be a professional handicapper. Cheetah also talked about seeking out live betting opportunities in college basketball and the NBA. Finally, he gave some of his thoughts on the early Super Bowl line and about looking for line value.

BangTheBook Sports Betting Talk Radio Podcast January 23

With Joe Everett on the road and unable to join us, host Adam Burke will take center stage at the top of the show for an overview of everything on in the sports world.
