NFL is just around the corner and this week’s episode of the Wise Kracks Sports Betting Podcast is dedicated to betting football contests. Whether you’re doing it live or online, Krack has a long list of valuable tips you need to know for a better chance of cashing in those contests.

We’ve also got short on-location interviews with three of the biggest names in Las Vegas football contests: Jay Kornegay, Derek Stevens and Kelly Stewart (AKA Kelly In Vegas).

Finally, we wrap things up with a special MLB pick from Krack and answers to three questions from our Twitter fans.

Sports Betting Strategy Session

This week Bill is taking on football contests and it’s great timing because he just entered a few higher buy-in contests in Las Vegas at the Circa and Westgate.

In this strategy session, Bill explains lots of ways to improve your chances of winning, and he also points to some free and low-stakes options you can play online, or at the live sportsbooks in your state.

Bill goes into detail on how to pick games, different strategies that depend on where you are in the season and the standings, tips for survivor contests, and much more. If you plan to bet on the NFL this season, check out this segment for lots of reasons to consider football contests.

Special Guests: Jay Kornegay, Derek Stevens and Kelly In Vegas

This week Bill was out in Las Vegas and captured short on-location interviews with three of the biggest names in NFL contests.

Bill chats to Kelly Stewart, AKA Kelly In Vegas, about her popular proxy service for out-ot-town bettors. Then it’s a conversation with Jay Kornegay, VP of Race and Sports Operations at the Westgate Superbook, about their big Super Contest, followed by a check-in with casino owner Derek Stevens about the contests going down at Circa in Las Vegas.

Weekly Free Pick

For this week’s pick, Krack is looking at MLB futures and suggests considering mid-level teams including the Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres, Chicago White Sox, Arizona Cardinals, Colorado Rockies, Chicago White Sox for futures.

Krack is pointing at this year’s unique format to help understand why there’s value in these long-shot futures plays. Some of these teams are going off at up to 30 to 1 which lends itself well to taking a few flyers on bets like this.

Twitter Q&A

This week’s twitter questions include an NBA matchup between the Mavs and Clippers, and whether the Raptors have a shot at winning the East. Krack also expands on his approach to playing multiple entries in football contests and checks in on the MLB and what we’ve seen so far in the first half of the season.
