This show delivers FREE daily sports betting picks, insights, and tips in under 14 minutes most days.

Podcast launched in August 2021, here's a list of some accomplishments:
2021 NFL Football - 57.7% against the spread winners, 62.8%-win rate on player prop bets
2022 MLB Baseball - 57.2%-win rate on team totals
2022 NFL Football - 60.2% against the spread winners 
2023 NCAA Basketball Conference Tournaments - 58.1%-win rate on 1H unders 
2023 College Football - Kota Capper College Football Central Lock, Underdog, and Unit Champ
2023 NFL Football - 57.3%-win rate on player prop bets
2024 NCAA College Basketball - 54%, up 22.18 units (up 58 units total w/blog plays)
Longest Winning Streak - 13 days in February 2024, 61-23, 72.6%, up 30.7103 units (all 1-unit bets)

Podcast motto: Manage that bankroll, don't chase money, have fun, and let's cash some tickets together. 

Manage that bankroll: Flat betting, percentage model, confidence model, and Kelly criterion model are all good options to be a long-term sports bettor. I flat bet risking 1 unit vs. winning 1 unit. 

Don't chase money: Think risk management vs. emotional wagering. I've hit 60% plus percent over 60 days only to bust out on a bad weekend by losing all discipline. I go hot/cold on a dime and need to weather the storms. 

Have fun: For me, sports betting is a hobby, so I need to keep it fun. I bet significantly less per game now than I did 20 years ago and I'm still having just as much fun doing it. 

Overall: I'm not good enough tail, not bad enough to fade. Some days I win, some days I lose. I've made and still make plenty of mistakes, I'm still learning but I love sports betting. I mispronounce names, cities, and teams. 

Caution: For entertainment purposes only. Gambling related content is not intended for anyone under the age of 21. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800-GAMBLER. Sports gambling isn't easy, I like gambling stocks long-term for that reason.

Great sport betting podcast

Thank you Mr. Action for sharing his betting experience. Don’t chase money

VPGSWP ,

Soapbox podcast.

Great lesson sir. Appreciate the honesty.
As a former degenerate gambler I can also attest it is not for revenue. YOU WILL LOSE OVER THE LONG RUN. You must consider a hobby. Limit bankroll. I don’t golf I don’t drink much. I do this.
It’s a hobby.

Banner18AZ ,

Great info! Must listen daily

Just found this podcast and I have added to one of my must listens!
Keep up the great work.
