This week on Wise Kracks, my sports betting podcast, Jon Orlando and I are thrilled to discuss March Madness with former NCAAB and NBA player, Tyler Lydon as well as Tom Brady’s return from retirement.
NCAA, NBA’s Tyler Lydon Talks March Madness
Tyler made it to the Final Four with Syracuse before being drafted in the first round to the Utah Jazz and then playing for the Denver Nuggets. It was awesome getting his firsthand perspective on the show as well as how he won the $1 million winner-take-all The Basketball Tournament on ESPN in 2021.
Insider Info Led to Big Bets on Brady Futures
“It kind of hijacked Selection Sunday and it drastically altered the NFL forecast for this year.”
Jon and I explain the amazing story of how sports bettors somehow got insider information on Tom Brady’s comeback before it was announced. The info was used to make a series of big futures bets on the Buccaneers to win everything from the division to the Super Bowl. With everyone’s attention focused on betting the NCAA tournament, it stood out even more that people were betting big on Buccs futures.
