Simon says “Winning!” - Week 17

I was elated when I heard from a friend that Chad and NFL pro gambler Simon Hunter had started a new NFL betting pod. I’ve been a long-time fan of Chad dating back to the Behind The Bets podcast and have quickly became a huge fan of Simon and following his picks on Twitter. Let’s put it this way - if you have a chance to follow along with the #24 ranked duo from the $2M Pro Football Pick’em contest, you take it.

“The Favourites podcast” is a great name because it will quickly become your must-listen pod of the week. In no time you’ll be cashing 0-13 Jets moneyline tickets with Simon, that is if you can find your big balls. Keep up the great work guys!

Simon says “I’m indestructible”

Hello all the way from Toronto, Canada. I wonder if a Canadian has ever won on this show before, if not I would love to be the first. Absolutely love this pod cast. It’s always entertaining to listen to Chad and Simon duke it out with their picks. It’s made me look at the game of football on a whole other level. I really appreciate this pod cast and everything you guys do! 2020 had been a tough year for a lot of people and you guys are just what the doctor ordered for some relief. Wishing you guys on the show including Matt Mitchell all the best for the rest of 2020, and hopefully an even better 2021. Stay safe and God bless.

Best Wagering Companion podcast (Simon says be my companion!)

Let’s cut out the noise: this pod is where you want to be to get your weekly investment advice.

Not every week is perfect, but remember:
Gross Gamez = Gross Gainz (you can use that)

While I may not listen multiple times (like the good doctor), I do download on multiple devices.

Excellent weekly advice and entertainment.
