February is always an interesting transition time in the world of sports. The NBA is approaching the midpoint of the season from a game count, but with this year’s late start, it feels like the league is just starting to take shape, identifying the have and have-nots.

Current Sports Events

We’re also on the cusp of the action with many other sports. College basketball games fill the board, but in truth, everyone is really just biding their time until March. The PGA tour has officially begun but everyone knows the season really starts in April at Augusta. And finally, baseball season starts in about a month. Jon and Bill share some key insights for sports bettors during this time.

Special Guest Phil Hellmuth

This week’s guest is one of the most well-known and successful professional poker players in the world. He has won a record fifteen World Series of Poker bracelets. He is the winner of the Main Event of the 1989 World Series of Poker. He is a 2007 inductee of the WSOP’s Poker Hall of Fame. He is affectionately referred to as the Poker Brat. This week’s guest is the legendary Phil Hellmuth.

Q&A and Pick of the Week

It wouldn’t be an episode of Wise Kracks without a viewer question and a pick. This week’s Twitter question comes from a past guest of the show, Howie Schwab. Howie asks the guys a basketball-related question. And finally, this week’s pick comes from the world of boxing. Don’t miss it!

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode of Wise Kracks and find something that improves your sports betting knowledge. WSN is the go-to destination for sports betting tips, bonuses, promotions, and great strategy guides.
