Hibees100 ,

Love the insight

Being a UK based NFL follower this podcast has opened my eyes on how I should be thinking when putting a bet on the NFL - look forward to listening to more going forwards and hopefully winning some pennies!

Won more bets than ever before!

Put yourself in my shoes, pre-week 1 of the new NFL season. You managed to break even with last years bets and you’re looking for some guidance this year. This is the perfect podcast. Let Simon and Chad show you the ways of the professional betting world and make some money. All while learning about greek salad, cucumber water (isn’t a cucumber like 80% water anyway?) and how to deal with twitter trolls
