The post ‘Cover City’: NFL Week 4 Picks, Preview With GambLou appeared first on SportsHandle.

Sports Handle is pleased to present Cover City: A Pro and College Football Betting Podcast, hosted by Eric Rosenthal (@ericcports). Rosenthal is a professional sports bettor who focuses on NFL and college football. He’s wagered more than $25 million in the last nine years, getting banned from many sportsbooks along the way.

For this episode Rosenthal brings in a special guest, veteran handicapper @GambLou.  It’s a tougher NFL slate this week with “pretty accurate lines” per Rosenthal, but there are definitely sides and potential teasers to like. 

Time codes for the episode follow below. Listen and subscribe on Spotify here.

2:49: Miami Dolphins +7 at New England Patriots: History says Patriots crush after two straight losses but… have the real 2018 Patriots already stood up?

12:20: Cincinnati Bengals +4 at Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons defense is a mess. Live dog alert here.

16:01: Buffalo Bills +9.5/10 at Green Bay Packers: Coming off an outright win in Minnesota as a 16.5-point dog. Lookahead line here was Packers -14.5. Mixed opinions from Eric and Lou.

23:16: Detroit Lions +3 at Dallas Cowboys: A couple middling teams separated pretty reasonably separated by a field goal. Detroit off a big win.

24:33: Tampa Bay Bucs +3 at Chicago Bears: Potential mismatch in the trenches.

28:45: Cleveland Browns +2.5/3 at Oakland Raiders: Some recency bias in favor of the Browns? Oakland will be preparing for Baker Mayfield.

33:00: Houston Texans +1 at Indianapolis Colts: Do the Texans finally get off the schneid? The Colts are pretty well dinged up in a desperation situation for Houston.

37:39: New York Jets +7.5 at Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jets are embarking on a pretty difficult stretch after the Jaguars just dropped an egg.

39:11: San Francisco 49ers +10.5 at Los Angeles Chargers: Here comes “Checkdown Charlie” Beathard . Another pass.

40:35: New Orleans Saints -3 at New York Giants: Saints playing outdoors for the first time this year and Flowers has been planted on the bench. Can you hear some barking?

43:15: Baltimore Ravens +3 at Pittsburgh Steelers: As always, a three-point spread between Steelers and Ravens. But how about that total of  51 that’s moved from 48.5 to 51?

44:35: Kansas City Chiefs -4.5 at Denver Broncos: Taking the points at Mile High, at the right time.

47:37: Eric’s 5 SuperContest picks!

Pro Football Doc Podcast: Week 4

As we head into week four of the 2018 NFL season injuries are starting to pile up. Should Aaron Rodgers be expected to make it through the season considering his previous injuries? Is Garoppolo's injury serious? how long should I expect a player in my fantasy league to be out if they're on injured reserve?

As we head into week four of the 2018 NFL season injuries are starting to pile up. Should Aaron Rodgers be expected to make it through the season considering his previous injuries? Is Garoppolo’s injury serious? how long should I expect a player in my fantasy league to be out if they’re on injured reserve? 

Dr. David Chao’s Pro Football Doc Podcast breaks down everything the common fan needs to know about ACL tears, concussions, and other injuries in the NFL.

Dr. Chao, an internationally known sports medicine expert, has been practicing orthopedic surgery in San Diego, California for the past 17 years at OASIS, Orthopedic Surgery Sports Medicine. He is the former head team physician for the San Diego Chargers (1997-2013), where he specializes in orthopedic sports injuries. He has also served as Chief Medical Officer for more than two dozen Summer and Winter X Games, team physician for the USA Sevens Rugby team, medical consultant for WWE, host physician for the U.S. Olympic committee and has consulted with the NBA, MLB, and NHL Players.  Dr. Chao attended Harvard before receiving his medical degree from Northwestern School of Medicine at Chicago.

In National Football Post’s previous incarnation Dr. David Chao had a column on sports injuries called Monday Morning MD. He opined about everything from how injury decisions are made, that all meniscus tears are not the same, to when to play or sit a player in his article Smart to Sit.

 

In this episode of the Pro Football Doc Podcast, Dr. Chao interviews NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Dr. Chao also breaks down injuries from Week 3 in the NFL and takes a few followers questions from Twitter.

You can follow David on Twitter @ProFootballDoc.

11:45: Cleveland Browns come into Week 3 as favorites! When was the last time this happened? Why Jason is surprised about the public when it comes to the Browns.

14:10: When do people tend to bet the moneyline? Jason explains how to take advantage of it.

44:50: New England Patriots -7 at Detroit Lions:  Sunday Night Football. Belichick’s former assistant Matt Patricia is not inspiring much confidence.

48:10: Pittsburgh Steelers -1.5 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Monday Night Football. The legend of FitzMagic grows. What’s the difference between Winston and FitzMagic besides a gorgeous beard?

The post ‘Pro Football Handle’: NFL Week 3 Breakdown, Really Bad Teams, And Big Totals appeared first on SportsHandle.

On The Pro Football Handle, Las Vegas-based sports talk voice Matt Perrault and veteran bookmaker Robert Walker dive into select NFL games, line movements and bookmaker liabilities, plus greater sports betting topics and stories that may have nothing to do with football. Walker has seen it all behind the counter and Perrault the same from behind the microphone, so they’ll have you prepared for anything.

Most bettors got crushed in Week 2 as underdogs went 11-5 against the spread and seven dogs won outright. Woof. We have now a two-game sample and as usual, a handful of surprises. Two of the biggest early season surprises will meet on Monday Night Football — the desperate and winless Pittsburgh Steelers, favored by a point, against the undefeated Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Your comments are welcome at @sports_handle. Listen on on Spotify hereTime codes for the episode follow below.


02:48: The guys discuss the FanDuel Sportsbook dispute over an $82,000 ticket written in error. Walker has been involved in this intimately over the years. What’s an obvious mistake?

16:12:  New York Jets +3 at Cleveland Browns: “The Browns are legitimate favorites. It’s hard to even say that.” Expecting an interesting, close game.

19:45: Indianapolis Colts +6.5 at Philadelphia Eagles: How many points is Carson Wentz worth (in his first week back) versus Nick Foles?

22:58: Cincinnati Bengals +3 at Carolina Panthers: The undefeated (2-0) Bengals take the show on the road. “Bet Carolina or walk away.” Carolina is not a public team.

25:45: How does a bookmaker handle really, really, ridiculously bad teams? Such as the Cardinals and Bills (+16.5 at Minnesota).

29:54: Oakland Raiders +3 at Miami Dolphins: Opened at 4, bet down to 3. People simply don’t believe in Miami as Oakland is coming off a game they had to find a way to lose.

32:10: San Francisco 49ers +6.5 at Kansas City Chiefs: Whooole lotta money looking at the over right now on a total out to 56.

36:27: Battle of Los Angeles: Chargers +7 at Rams: Walker believes this closes at 7.5 or 7 -120.
“As a bookmaker we’ll need the Chargers. That’ll be one of biggest decisions of the day.” Rams are the real deal on both sides, the new Super Bowl favorite. “The pros take 7.5 early, always.”

38:27: Detroit Lions +7 at New England Patriots: Belichick against a former assistant coach, also off a loss… so what can the Lions do here? Books will need Lions and under (52).

40:50: Pittsburgh Steelers -1 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: FitzMagic! The winless Steelers are staring at 0-2-1 and a full-fledged tailspin.

Come Monday night, the books will need the under, Walker says.


Have a profitable Week 3, folks. Thanks for listening and see you back next week, tell a friend, sign up for our newsletter and also check out the Cover City Podcast, featuring sports bettor Eric Rosenthal.

1:40: Passing on the upcoming college football slate.

2:49: Carolina Panthers +6 at Atlanta Falcons: Disastrous red zone play-calling by the Falcons and a ridiculous Matt Ryan-Julio Jones stat. Falcons injuries and touchdown regression.

7:06: Eyeing Christian McCaffrey receiving prop bets.

7:51: Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Line unknown, except in SuperContest. Discussing Aaron Rodgers’ uncertain status impact on Week 2.

12:06: Los Angeles Chargers -7.5 at Buffalo Bills: The Nathan Peterman era comes to an end. Joey Bosa out again.

14:48: Teaser leg of the week, making teaser bets and some principles to follow.

19:36: Eric pushes all in on Houston.

22:30: Doctor’s orders regarding Aaron Rodgers and what that means for the prop market in Green Bay.

23:35: Philadelphia Eagles -3 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Keep on eye on the hook here. The guys love this game, buying low and selling high.

28:30: New England Patriots PK at Jacksonville Jaguars: You don’t get rich betting against the Patriots. Rules don’t apply and Christian leans under.

The post ‘The NFL Handle’: NFL Week 2 Breakdown And Week 1 Reflections, Disappointments appeared first on SportsHandle.

On The NFL Handle, Las Vegas-based sports talk voice Matt Perrault and veteran bookmaker Robert Walker of USBookmaking dive into select NFL games, line movements and bookmaker liabilities, plus greater sports betting topics and stories that may have nothing to do with football. Walker has seen it all behind the counter and Perrault the same from behind the microphone, so they’ll have you prepared for anything.

NFL Week 2, also known as “overreaction” or “adjustments” week, has arrived. In Week 2 we’ll see an AFC Championship rematch with the Patriots -1.5 at the Jaguars, the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles -3 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — who just beat the Saints outright in New Orleans as a nearly 10-point dogs — and various other lines of interest. How will the Lions and Bills respond after their respective debacles?

Your comments are welcome at @sports_handle. (Link coming for iTunes listeners). Time codes for the episode follow below.


0:35: Reflections on Week 1, the excitement of the first kickoff and how the sportsbook fared.

1:35: “Automatic” plays — a viable strategy? Not all home dogs have the same bite.

7:17: Miami Dolphins +3 at New York Jets — a line that’s bounced around a bit. What should the line actually be and where might it go?

11:30: Los Angeles Chargers -7 at Buffalo Bills — typically it’s elite teams that open as 9 point favorites on the road. Bills rookie QB Josh Allen will start his first game for Buffalo, who will probably have the backing of the “pros.”

14:52: Detroit Lions +6.5 at San Francisco 49ers — both teams coming off disappointing (or extremely disappointing) performances. Line’s moved based on how bad the Lions looked. Early marriage trouble for Matt Patricia and Detroit.

21:00: Cleveland Browns +9  at New Orleans Saints —The Browns, off to their best start since 2004 (0-0-1), visit the Saints, who at least showed up offensively in their Week 1 defensive faceplant.

23:40: Arizona Cardinals +12.5 at Los Angeles Rams — Just how good are the Rams? So far they’re gobbling all the wagers.

26:53: A few words about environment and atmosphere — with a major hurricane, Florence, set to hit the East Coast.

29:10: New England Patriots -1.5 at Jacksonville Jaguars —An AFC Championship rematch.

33:25: New York Giants +3 at Dallas Cowboys — Cowboys are in trouble. Giants are the play.

35:30: Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (off the board): Aaron Rodgers, worth about 6 or 7 points, most likely will play.

38:30: Houston Texans -2 at Tennessee Titans — another quarterback injury question hangs over this AFC South contest with Marcus Mariota (elbow) not a lock to suit up.

41:00: Kansas City Chiefs -4 at Pittsburgh Steelers —  Are the Chiefs really good or the Steelers not so good? Highest total on the board in this game (52.5).

42:45: Indianapolis Colts +6 at Washington Redskins — Who’s willing to lay the six points?

42:50: Favorite play of the weekend! Or at least the most interesting and probably the biggest decision of the week. The defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are (just) a 3-point favorite on the road against Tampa Bay? Also looking hard at Arizona and perhaps giving the Raiders a second chance.

48:40: Bonus bookmaking question about Canelo vs. GGG Part II and discussion of “open scoring” in boxing.

Have a profitable Week 2, folks. Follow Perrault on Twitter @sportstalkmatt and Walker @robertusfsports.

The post Introducing ‘The NFL Handle’: An NFL Betting Podcast Featuring Robert Walker And Matt Perrault appeared first on SportsHandle.

Sports Handle is pleased to present the debut episode of The NFL Handle. This NFL betting podcast pairs together Las Vegas-based sports talk voice Matt Perrault with veteran bookmaker Robert Walker, now of USBookmaking, formerly of Resorts World, MGM Mirage and “numerous other books that were glad to see me go,” he says on Twitter. Perrault is also host of Pushing The Odds on SB Nation Radio.

On the The NFL Handle, Perrault and Walker will dive into select NFL games, line movements and bookmaker liabilities, plus greater sports betting topics and stories that may have nothing to do with football. Walker has seen it all behind the counter and Perrault the same from behind the microphone, so they’ll have you prepared for anything.

Your comments are welcome at @sports_handle. (Link coming for iTunes listeners). Time codes for the episode follow below.



0:30: Introducing Walker and to a lesser extent, Perrault. Thoughts on a new era of sports betting in the U.S., potential federal involvement, and a welcome to the NFL season.

19:50: The NFL slate, beginning with Falcons +1 at Eagles (line has now moved to ATL -1 in some shops). On Nick Foles and the challenge of repeating as champion.

28:10: Jimmy G and the 49ers +6.5 at Vikings in Kirk Cousins’ debut in Minnesota.

32:57: Pittsburgh Steelers -4 at the Cleveland Browns of Hard Knocks.

40:30: New York Jets +6.5 at Detroit Lions (and a total that’s ticked down).

42:40: Los Angeles Rams -4 at Oakland Raiders.

49:10: Some final thoughts: Are certain games more attractive situationally? Not all home dogs are created equal.


Have a profitable Week 1, folks. Thanks for listening and see you back next week, tell a friend, sign up for our newsletter and also check out the Cover City Podcast, featuring sports bettor Eric Rosenthal.

26:43: Examining the AFC East, owned and operated by the New England Patriots.
