Welcome to this week’s edition of the Wise Kracks Sports Betting Podcast.

Keith Lyle Uncovers Bad Celebrity Tippers!

Keith Lyle is an industry vet. What industry? Well.. all of them. He’s been a dealer in Las Vegas, an actor, as well as a comedian. He was in The Hangover and The Gambler as a dealer and performs regularly at Jokesters. Keith Lyle came with the stories (and the laughs!)

Ever wonder how celebrities are at tipping? How about one of the most recognizable celebrities.

It turns out Jennifer Lopez isn’t the best at tipping! “J.Lo came in there one time,” said Keith. “She sat in the salon away from everybody… ran the butler all along, didn’t tip anybody, didn’t tip the dealer.”

This is a story that you definitely have to hear. J.Lo isn’t the only celebrity Keith has stories about!

Basketball Blowouts

The playoffs are supposed to feature close, tight games… right? In the NHL, most games are being decided between a goal (or two with an empty net). In the NBA, not so much.

The last ten games in the NBA have been decided by an average score of 17.6 points.

This includes two second-round Game 7s and eight conference finals games. You know, the games where the best four teams remaining in the NBA compete against one another.

Bill and Jon have noticed this trend and discuss how it has been affecting total projections and player prop bets. Players have been scoring at a high volume in the first half and then being able to rest for the second half. Not the greatest outcome for NBA bettors!
