Baseball is back! It’s a big day in sports and a HUGE day on the Wise Kracks Sports Betting Podcast. We’ve got an absolutely stacked show including a deep dive into MLB betting and an interview with sports betting podcast heavy hitter Gill Alexander. Krack also shares a special betting tip and answers sports betting questions from the viewers.

Bill’s Tips for Baseball’s Return

First up is the strategy session and this week Krack is loading up the bases with an all-star roster of baseball betting knowledge. Krack goes into detail on betting over/under totals, which is how he’s been most successful betting on MLB during his career. He digs into the biggest factors to keep in mind and how important key numbers and line shopping are for winning in the long run.

Krack also has valuable tips on how to understand everything from starting pitcher matchups to how to read the weather to home plate umps. Finally, Krack breaks down how to bet on sides and goes on to put everything in the context of the shortened 2020 season.

Special Guest Gill Alexander From A Number Game

Following the strategy talk, Rosalie and Bill speak to Gill Alexander. If you’re a fan of sports betting podcasts, chances are you already know him. He’s the host of one of the first-ever sports gambling podcasts, Beat the Book, and he also hosts A Numbers Game on VSiN where he’s one of the network’s most popular personalities.

Gill gives us his take on how to adjust betting strategies in light of all the changes to MLB this year including the short season and a handful of new and important rules to keep in mind.

Bill Krackman’s Free Expert MLB Pick of the Week

This week, instead of a straight-up pick, Krack has a valuable betting tip for MLB. You’ll have to watch the full episode to get the nitty-gritty but it has to do with watching for overnight line movement on game totals, especially as the sportsbooks struggle to make sense of all the uncertainty facing baseball.

Bill and Rosalie Take Questions From Twitter

Last but not least, Krack answers questions from our Twitter viewers. This week we touch on the impact of no NFL preseason, which team might provide some sneaky value for MLB futures and whether the new extra-inning rule is worth taking into consideration when betting baseball totals.
