It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the sports betting world is ready! The sun is starting to come out, rosters are starting to slim down and we’re now just a week away from MLB Opening Day.

While you get ready for baseball season, Jon Orlando and I are here to recap the latest in the NFL, discuss March Madness and talk about the slap heard around the world. 

Baseball season is on the horizon and we are joined by John Laghezza! John comes with a loaded toolkit to talk about America’s Favorite Pastime. He’s the creator of the MLB Moving Averages betting algorithm, an MLB Writer for The Athletic, the founder of Corked Stats, and a contributor at the Mayo Media Network. We can’t wait to hear his insight to help us all dominate this upcoming MLB season.

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

NFL Rule Changes And Roster Movement

The NFL recently announced a change to their postseason overtime rules. This new rule ensures both teams will receive possession in overtime. The vote was 29-3 in favor of the change and will help teams that are less fortunate when it comes to coin-flip results. Teams that have won the overtime coin-flip in the postseason were 10-2. “I actually wish they changed it for the whole season. I, for one, don’t like the ‘coin-toss winner’.”

Explaining the rule, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on NFL.com, “We’re always looking to improve and I think what really drove the decision was the database, ultimately, and looking at the facts and what’s happened. Where we saw that most having an influence, I think, was 12 games in the postseason that have been in overtime, seven of which were won on the first possession. When you see that, that’s the type of thing that I think our coaches and everyone looked at — this is an issue in the postseason we should deal with.”

There’s been no shortage of movement around the NFL either. I wanted to make the point that, “It’s not just (Tom) Brady coming back. Players don’t stick with one team anymore.”

John Laghezza Chats MLB Betting And Strategy

Jon and I were so thrilled to be joined by John Laghezza this week for the Wise Kracks Sports Betting Podcast! He is, by all accounts, a baseball savant: creator of the MLB Moving Averages betting algorithm, writer at The Athletic, and a regular at the Mayo Media Network, John dives deep into a strategy for the upcoming season and for him, it starts with a dedication to his craft.

“If you want to succeed at trading, the same way you need to succeed at betting, the most important thing is the price. I chart stocks in the middle of the night. I enter the market when the price meets me. I don’t try to force timing on the market.”

I asked John about one of his favorite bets involving the Milwaukee Brewers. John was excited to answer and said, “The Brewers right off the bat are the best-placed team for value. Pitching. Pitching. Pitching. I don’t know why people bet on hitting when the best hitters only succeed 3 of 10 times. Good pitching defeats good hitting.”

We tap into John’s mindset even more and get his take on how the MLB’s recent rule changes will impact gambling, bettors, and even players. “I do think it will save a couple of injuries. That’s the most important thing,” said Laghezza when referring to the extra base runner rule.

With the new rule changes, John has created a rule of his own. “I have completely eliminated nine-inning unders from my betting plans,” said Laghezza. 

The Slap Heard Around The World

“I have to admit, I wouldn’t have known the Oscars were on if it wasn’t for this. I don’t follow that stuff.”

“The only two people that could get away with it are Will Smith and The Rock,” said Jon. 

“To be blunt, I’m not a Will Smith guy.”

Jon had a solution for the whole debacle and said “All he had to do was pull Chris Rock backstage and say ‘Hey man, I don’t know if you know, but Jada’s going through some health stuff and she was really offended by that.’ Chris would probably be the first to apologize!”

Watch the rest of the interview to learn more from one of the sharpest minds in baseball and hear about Jon’s father’s phone call with Adam Sandler and Chris Rock.
