This week’s episode of Wise Kracks sports betting podcast is packed! Jon Orlando and I have plenty to cover with NFL playoffs in full swing right now. But before we get into current events, we kick the show off remembering Tommy Lasorda, the late baseball legend. Jon shares a touching, childhood story about Tommy.
Last week, there was plenty of NFL playoff action. The road teams went 4-2 last week, which isn’t typically what you see during playoffs. On Sunday, we saw a classic betting moment when the Chicago Bears scored with no time left, but didn’t go for the extra point and just missed the line at 11. The weekend closed with a wild game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.
NFL Divisional Playoffs Weekend Look Ahead
The divisional round this week is a different situation. We’ve got well-rested teams facing gritty teams. The Green Bay Packers seem to have the advantage on the LA Rams at home in the cold weather, but I’m not so sure that weather is as big of a factor as it’s made out to be. I’m also looking forward to watching the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills game. Both teams are promising right now, so it should be an action-packed game for sure!
Wise Kracks is primarily about sports betting tips and conversation, but every once in a while, we’ll indulge some details about my life outside of sports betting. This week, I share my top five favorite TV shows.
Interview With NFL QB Rodney Peete
This week’s guest is one of the true gentlemen of the NFL, Rodney Peete. After setting USC records, he finished second to Barry Sanders in the 1988 Heisman Trophy vote. He then embarked on a 15 year NFL career that started with the Detroit Lions and ended with the Carolina Panthers in 2004. He is the co-host of Roggin and Rodney on AM570 Sports Radio and he is the other half of one of the first real celebrity power couples with his wonderful wife, Holly Robinson Peete.
Playoffs Sports Betting Preview
Finally, we talk about Jon’s pick of the week with the remaining time. He’s riding the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Bucs all the way to the Super Bowl, parlay style! And yep, he’s going with the money line. Believe it or not, I’m okay with this. Don’t miss this week’s episode!
