Kip Durling ,

Short Sweet, to the Point

Love the 4 minute episodes with 2-3 easily findable picks. I’m new to this podcast and I really enjoy. I’ve had great fun & success plying alongside. Keep the shorties coming!!

RiverSchuylkill ,

Please publish earlier!

Great information and suggestions on the DraftKings Ace of the Day episodes but the episodes are being posted too late to use any of it, at least on Apple Podcasts.

JordyTennis ,

Bad Timing

This podcast gives gambling advice but is frequently released during mornings when the matches discussed are in Europe and have already started.

Need to get the picks out the night before for it to make sense to listen to
