3 Time Super Bowl Champ Randy Cross, UFC Picks, College Football Betting Rules (Wise Kracks Ep. 58)


Wise Kracks is back with a new episode direct from Las Vegas, with your co-hosts Bill Krackomberger and Jon Orlando.

Pacquiao Fight

Krack is coming in hot this week with the story of his bets on the big Pacquiao fight from last weekend. It’s a glimpse into how the betting strategy of a sharp stays fluid in response to changes in fight personnel, line movement and inside information. It’s also a reminder that, even for the best bettors, things don’t always go to plan in the sports betting game.

UFC Fight Night Barboza vs Chickadze

That story springboards the guys into getting right into some picks, and Jon has some hot tips for the UFC card in Vegas next weekend. Preseason football is well underway, and Bill gives us an update on how his bets have been going.

Special Guest Randy Cross

We’ve got a special guest joining us Wise Kracks this week. Randy Cross is a three-time Super Bowl winner along with Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers.

Randy has also forged a great broadcasting career since his retirement, covering NFL and college football for a variety of networks, and he’s got a great perspective on the sport. The guys discuss the role of sports betting in sports broadcasting, and how relevant the betting lines are from the perspective of a broadcaster.

Randy has one foot in the old school NFL and one in the new school of football, thanks to his role in broadcasting. All the guys talk about how the game has changed over that time, how body shapes have changed, how the style of play has changed and what kind of spectacle it is now compared to back in the day. Krack can’t let this opportunity pass without asking about Joe Montana, who Randy played with for years.

Randy has some good insights into what makes athletes like Montana stand apart from others. Unsurprisingly, Jon can’t resist bringing up the million-dollar question: Brady or Montana, who is the GOAT?

You won’t be surprised who Randy goes for, but his reasoning is compelling. He even has time to tell a few stories from his famous Miller Lite commercial back in the day.

Bill and Jon finish up by looking ahead to upcoming sporting events, and what bets Bill has his eye on.

College Football Tips

College football is just around the corner, and Bill explains how you’re more likely to find value when sportsbooks have upwards of 200 teams to keep track of during a crowded schedule. He’s got lots of good pieces of advice.

Never tease college football is one. He also thinks the average bettor sets WAY too much store in the weather forecast for college games – with the possible exception of the wind.

Bill explains all of those tips and many more, just in time for the college football season, in this brand new episode of Wise Kracks.
