We’re back for episode 56 of our Wise Kracks sports betting podcast – and for the first time in a while Jon Orlando and I are in the same room! I’m back home in Vegas after being on the road on the East Coast for the past few weeks.
Olympic Gold Medalist Maurice Greene
We are extremely excited about our special guest this week and the timing couldn’t be better. Jon and I are thrilled to welcome back two time Olympic gold medalist Maurice Greene to Wise Kracks! Maurice is the perfect guest to comment on the Olympic Games, and he has some strong opinions on team USA’s performance in the track and field events. It was one of the worst showings in years in terms of medals, and Maurice has some theories on why that be the case – from the lack of fans to athletes simply taking their eye off the ball.
In fact, Maurice has a refreshing perspective on just about everything. We discuss how to come back stronger after a failure and how overcoming mental health challenges is just another part of being a top level athlete. Jon also wastes no time in getting into the big question of who is the sprinting GOAT and asks Maurice about his feelings towards one Usain Bolt.
There is plenty of reminiscing with Maurice in this episode of Wise Kracks. There’s the time he ran so fast they decided to spray down his shoes with a fire extinguisher after the race. There was his experience watching in tears at the Olympics in 1996, before coming back to win gold at the following games in 2000. Outside of sport Maurice is also loaded with stories, from attending Tyson fights back in the day to using Google when he got asked for ID at an Apple store.
Betting Strategies And Insights
Now that I’m back from my East Coast trip, Jon has come in hot with some questions about gambling strategy and casino etiquette. I give listeners a sneak preview of an upcoming guest I have lined up (hint: a major high roller). I also share all kinds of insights during today’s episode, from how big time gamblers should maximize their comp offers from casinos to blackjack and Spanish 21 tips.
We even have time to take a couple of questions from listeners, including how the Bills are looking for the imminent NFL season, swapping prop bets, and moneyline parlay advice in the MLB. Jon and I, along with Maurice, cover absolutely tons of topics on this week’s episode.
