“Big Boy Bets” is a lighthearted, conversational show centered on college football betting, hosted by Dan Rubenstein (The Solid Verbal, Sports Wars, Sports Illustrated, SB Nation) and former NFL player Geoff Schwartz (Fox Sports Radio, ESPN+, SB Nation). The weekly show will feature the two longtime friends finding value in games, futures, props, and parlays as they navigate the college football season. Also, as the resident big boy, the always eccentric and opinionated Geoff will give weekly tips (along with guests) on how to best live one’s life as a Big Boy. And to be clear, being a big boy* doesn’t require one to be big or a boy, but rather embrace a state of mind.
