Week 12 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 66)
We're back with another week of best bets. Thanksgiving has come and gone, but there's football to look forward to in the coming days and Dan Harris is here to give his favorite plays for the weekend. We're going game-by-game, giving our leans, games to avoid, and most importantly, why we feel the way we do. The experts are heavily betting the Giants as 6-point favorites against the Bengals (5:55), but Dan prefers the Browns game more (9:58). Are the Bucs going to rebound against the Chiefs (11:08) and will the 49ers get enough from their returning players to cover against the Rams (19:36)? Stick around to the end to get our favorite play of the week.

It's getting deeper into the season, but we're not slowing down. Matt & Dan are back at it to hit on all their favorite plays of the week against the spread. Will Mahomes and Co. show up to cover in Las Vegas (5:58) and hear why Dan is leaning with the Eagles at +3.5 while Matt is on the opposite side with the Browns (10:29). Are the Ravens in trouble as home favorites (14:11) and can the Patriots show they're a contender still this weekend (24:16)? Get all the answers as we break down Week 11's best bets.

Week 10 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 64)
We are back for another week of picks and Dan Harris along with Matt Perrault are talking through each of the games including their favorites. There's not much agreement in this one, but Matt leads things off with the Bucs heading to Carolina as road favorites (4:10). Find out why the guys are on opposite ends when it comes to the Browns (10:33) and Chargers (14:41).

Week 9 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 63)
Welcome to Week 9! Dan and Matt are back at it to drill down their five favorite picks for the week against the spread. We start in LA with the Chargers, but an early disagreement doesn't land that game in our final picks (3:50). What does make our list is the Seahawks heading to Buffalo as underdogs (7:05). The two have another disagreement with which side to take in the Ravens/Colts matchup (13:47), but find common ground in a game with a double-digit spread (20:11). The Saints are getting Michael Thomas back, but is that enough to cover +4.5 in Tampa (26:38) and despite the Patriots' struggles, should bettors take them against the lowly Jets (30:39)?

Week 8 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 62)
Is it possible for Dan and Matt to agree on all their picks this week? NO. There is hope though as the two are back and they kick the show off with back-to-back agreements for the week (5:02 & 7:50). Weather is going to start becoming a problem with the first November games this Sunday, but will it hamper the Saints in Chicago (18:08)? Is it out of this world to take the Chiefs as 19.5 point favorites (30:45) and can the Vikings do anything in Green Bay as the underdogs or will Aaron Rodgers and Co. cover the 6.5 point spread (37:11)?

Week 7 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 61)
After another winning week, the guys are back and will try to for a clean sweep with their five best bets in Week 7. Things start off a bit rocky with Matt's favorite bet getting shut down by Dan (5:38) and Matt returning the favor (8:35). Despite this, we do end up with five games that the two agree on including a prime time divisional matchup between the Seahawks and Cardinals (16:50). Is the spread big enough this week to actually take the Jets (25:44) and despite going on the road, the Packers are favored against the Texans, but are they the right play (28:48)?

Week 6 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 60)
We're back for Week 6 as we give the betting lowdown on all the games. We kick things off with the defending Super Bowl champs heading into Buffalo (7:43). And while Dan and Matt agree on the first two games they discuss, the disagreements follow for the next two including the Packers heading to Tampa Bay as 2.5 point favorites (13:19). The 49ers were blown out by the Dolphins at home, will the same happen against the Cardinals (22:50)? Is there any spread that's too high for a team going against the Jets (30:17) and does the return of Cam Newton make the Patriots' -9.5 spread something worth taking (36:06)?

Week 5 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 59)
Week 5 on first sight may not look like the prettiest week to make bets, but there are games and lines to take advantage of and we're touching on them all. The Titans have put the NFL in a rough situation and it's important to know how the books are handling bets for that game (5:08). Can the Colts put a stop to the Browns' recent turnaround (15:07) and which way will the Texans go after firing Bill O'Brien (18:06)? Is there any reason to believe Arizona doesn't cover against the Jets (24:06) and find out which way we'd lean if we had to bet on either the 49ers (35:19) or the Washington Football Team (36:35).

Week 4 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 58)
It's time for another round of best bets against the spread and we're kicking things off with a few wagers neither of our hosts can agree on. We eventually net out on our five, but listen in to our reasonings for and against the Raiders getting 2.5 against the Bills (4:58) and the Saints laying 3.5 against the Lions (11:23). Should the 49ers be such heavy favorites with all of their injuries (14:12) and are the Browns starting to figure things out in time to push the Cowboys in Week 4 (19:05)? Despite Russell Wilson's MVP season, could the Dolphins be the right pick at +6.5 (32:20) and will the Ravens play angry enough to cover as 12.5 point favorites (36:03)? Get our thoughts on all the games this weekend.

Week 3 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 57)
Week 3 of football is here and we're back to give our picks against the spread. Matt's feeling confident while Dan isn't a huge fan of the games, but in the end, we've got our top five plays of the week and we're starting with our favorite game featuring the Patriots and Raiders (7:23). Can the Titans go into Minnesota and cover or will the home team take care of business (9:49)? We've got some big disagreements to talk through with the Cowboys (16:49) and the Giants (23:39), but we do find our five plays including the AFC Super Bowl on Monday night (32:20). Listen in through the whole show as Matt drops a bonus futures play that you'll want to take advantage of now.

Week 2 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 56)
We're back to blitz through all the matchups in Week 2 to give our top 5 best bets against the spread. After nearly going 4-1 in the first week, we'll look to better that mark in a week filled with difficult plays to make. The Panthers are getting 9.5, but will the real Tom Brady show up after a porous outing (5:45)? We discuss one of the easier picks of the week (8:17) before getting into the first matchup with a 5.5 point spread which Matt stays away from, but will he be talked into it (13:37)? The Vikings ran into the Hall of Fame version of Aaron Rodgers in the first week and are now underdogs against Philip Rivers who looked quite the opposite of his prime (22:50). Listen in as we run through games we are staying away from (27:55) before recapping our top 5.

Week 1 NFL Best Bets (Ep. 55)
Week 1 has arrived and we're here to give our favorite plays that we'll be actually using in our DraftKings Pick'em Championship contest. Listen in as we debate which teams make our cut of our top five favorite bets against the spread. Should the Cardinals getting 6.5 points from the 49ers be on your radar (5:21) and will the Falcons show the oddsmakers they were wrong to make them a home underdog in week 1 (7:11)? Is there a reason the Bengals aren't heavier underdogs (13:29) and what is Matt's rule when it comes to 5.5 point spreads (18:34)?

NFC Over/Under Win Predictions (Ep. 54)
We're back tackling the NFC after giving Over/Under win predictions for the AFC last week. The pandemic will undoubtedly have an impact on teams this year, especially ones with new head coaches or new players in prominent roles. Looking at the NFC East (3:39), there are a couple of teams that fit that description. The NFC North (11:12) has more continuity, but can Aaron Rodgers repeat a 13 win season (11:37)? If there's ever a year for the Saints to push for a Super Bowl, this is it (18:15) and Tampa Bay will be much more competitive, but will it be enough to bet them on the over for 9.5 wins (20:57)? The West is filled with talent and continuity (27:48), but there are high expectations out there that the books are setting for the 49ers and Seahawks. Will either hit the over?

AFC Over/Under Win Predictions (Ep. 53)
We are just two weeks away from football making its way back into homes and it's time to revisit the AFC as we preview each division and predict whether teams will hit the over or under. It's a double dose of BettingPros hosts with Dan Harris back to get the season started alongside Matt Perrault who's been giving his daily takes on our Daily Juice podcast. With both being AFC East fans, the show kicks off talking about our favorite bet in the East, the Jets (5:58). The North features a Bengals team with a rookie QB, but can Joe Burrow lead them past 5.5 wins (13:05)? The South has a pair of quality teams that should provide strong Over plays (20:43) while the West leads to a disagreement about the Raiders (29:44).

NFL Best Bets: 2020 Division, Conference & Super Bowl Winners (Ep. 52)
With the launch of the 2020 schedule, we're evaluating the latest lines across the NFL. Joining us is Andrew Caley, senior editor at Covers, to blitz through each division and identify where your money should be wagered. Starting with the AFC East, despite the Patriots moving on from Tom Brady and making minimal impact moves in the draft or free agency, they're still the favorites, but are they the smart bet (2:41)? The Ravens are the rightful overwhelming favorites in the North, but is there any value in this division (8:56)? The Cowboys are the favorite in the NFC East, but their recent history of under-performing is concerning (23:24). Did Tom Brady and Gronk tank any value the Bucs may have had (36:15) and are the Seahawks the easy value pick in the NFC West given Russell Wilson's greatness (39:25)? Get our picks for the division winners (AFC 44:44, NFC 47:00) and lastly, which lines stood out now that we know what's on the schedule for Week 1 (51:10).

NFC Over/Under Wins: Best Bets (Ep. 50)
From the AFC to now the NFC, we're looking at all the projected win totals and picking out our favorite bets. Joining us is Iain MacMillan of Odds Shark to break down each division starting with the NFC East (2:50). A disagreement on the Cowboys (3:13) and multiple head coaching changes (7:40 & 9:42) make the East a difficult one to navigate. Should we expect the Packers to lose 4 games more than they did last season (12:56) and what will the South look like with a pair of aging Hall of Fame quarterbacks (18:48)? Can Iain's mind be changed on the Saints (23:14) and what can we expect out of the crowded West (26:40)?

With the NFL Draft around the corner and early Over/Under win totals being available, Adam Burke of BangTheBook Radio joins the show to talk about the best bets available across the AFC. The AFC East is a wild card with the Brady-less Patriots, but how much will actually change in the division (2:37)? After flopping in 2019, are the Browns primed to hit the over on their projected win total of 8.5 (14:59)? What do you do with a large projected win total like that of the Ravens (23:26) and which team offers up the best bet in the AFC South (25:24)? To round out the AFC, there's one team in the West, that is being underestimated (33:36).

NFL Super Bowl Game and Prop Bets (Ep. 47)
Super Bowl Sunday is almost here, and we are joined by Sean Green of the Sports Gambling Podcast and Andrew Caley, a Senior Publishing Editor at Covers.com, to break down everything there is to know about the Big Game. We start by taking a look at who has the advantage against the spread and whether we expect the over or under to hit (2:43) before we dive into a plethora of prop bets. We look at player props such as Patrick Mahomes’ rushing yards total (16:11), when he’s likely to throw a TD (20:56), and whether or not Jimmy Garoppolo will have to throw and complete more passes this week than last week to keep up with Mahomes (34:38). But we don’t stop there. We also get into the national anthem (14:32), the number of players carted off the field (28:35), MVP (42:43) and what color Gatorade the winning coach will be soaked in (49:36).
