World Champs!

A delighted Jon O shares his love of all things LA Dodgers and celebrates their World Series win from the night before. Bill recalls his memories of the ’86 Subway Series, and marvels at Jon’s luck, being in the stands for one of the best MLB playoff games ever played.


Bill takes us behind the scenes from a wild night out on the Strip, and gives us a glimpse into the glamorous life of a Las Vegas high-roller, exclusive black-tie parties, casino launches, and rubbing elbows with the who’s-who of the gambling world.

Jon & Krack talk UFC and legendary grappler, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s snap retirement, following his impressive win over Justin Gaethje. Jon predicts we will see Khabib fight again.

Krack talks NFL Week 7 upsets, and shares why you should always shop around for the best money lines.  Jon regrets his “mortgage the house” pick on the Bills from last week.

After another week of crushing his NFL totals, Bill gives us some insight into how it can be just as profitable to find a losing handicapper as a winning one, all you have to do is bet the other way.

Ask the Doc

The guys are joined by former San Diego (LA) Chargers team doctor, David J. Chao, who dials-in from the O.R.  between surgeries. David shares some brilliant insights into how and why teams label players as  “questionable” on any given Sunday, and tells us how Philip Rivers’ toughness has been the key to his longevity in the game.

Bill gets candid, telling the doc he’s misclicked and bet the wrong side for thousands of dollars more than once.

David shares his views on the pros & cons of artificial turf in the modern game and explains why football isn’t a contact game, but a collision one.

Jon picks the Chiefs over the Jets and predicts Kansas City could cover the total by themselves.

Jon decides to take the under in the Chargers – Broncos game.

Take a look at the predictions and picks for NFL Week 8.
