After a massive holiday week in sports, Wise Kracks sports betting podcast is back in action with my cohost Jon Orlando. We have lots to chat about, sports betting results, picks and reactions to it all.
We’re excited to welcome undefeated boxer Liam Paro and his trainer to Wise Kracks to talk about his upcoming fight as part of the undercard on the much-anticipated Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury bout.
NFL Picks, College Football And Basketball Betting Tips
Jon and I start this week’s episode by digging into NCAA Basketball, including the huge game in Las Vegas between Duke and the top-ranked Gonzaga. It broke the record for the highest attendance for a basketball game in Vegas ever. I explain to Jon and our listeners why I generally take a pass on betting on marquee college basketball games.
College Football had a big weekend last week and we’re getting ready for the Conference Championships games on tap for this weekend. I share my betting strategy for betting bowl games, what to focus on and what to watch out for, and where there may be some hidden value if you know where to look.
The NFL season is in it’s home stretch and Jon and I chop it up over how times have changed for teams like the Titans, Rams and Bills. We talk through the most appealing bets on the sheet this week including NFL futures like Bill Belichick to win Coach of the Year at +1200 and Mac Jones for Rookie of the Year.
Special Guests Liam Paro And Steve Rowlands
Australian boxer Liam Paro is 21-0 with 13 KOs and he’s currently training for the biggest fight of his life. It will be Paro’s first time fighting in the US and he’s up against another undefeated fighter in Puerto Rico’s Yomar Alamo. With a record of 20-0-1, I was quick to pull out an old favorite of mine – “Someone’s O has got to go.”
Paro is a rising star and according to him his match with Alamo is going to be a fireworks show. In addition to his stellar record, Paro has been working with an incredible team, including sparring with former World Champion Shakur Stevenson.
In this fascinating interview, Paro and his trainer Steve Rowlands explain what it’s been like training in the US to get ready for what is the biggest fight of Paro’s career so far. “The quality here is the highest level out here,” said Rowlands. “Every kid you spar without here is good and you’ve got to be on your toes. This is what’s going to make Liam a much better fighter down the stretch.”
Paro and his team are also working with the likes of Devin Haney and Rances Barthelemy to get ready. Paro and Rowlands also have some choice words about Jake Paul and how their opinion of him has changed since he first got in the ring. It’s clear that Paro is as hungry as it gets and we can’t wait to see him in action later this month.
