The best gambling podcast!

This is a great podcast for new or seasoned sports bettors! Simon Hunter is a legit pro gambler and Chad Millman has been hosting a show like this for as long as anybody can remember. The nuggets of gambling info are invaluable for the NFL and beyond and this new Thursday Thunderdome game has been the best addition to my workweek ever. Def recommend to anybody who is into sports gambling.
