Love the Show (Wild Card Tidbet)

In the history of the NFL playoffs, teams with a negative point differential in the regular season, when playing in the wild card round is 5-0 ATS and 5-0 SU...... only 2 teams to meet that criteria are the raiders and Steelers. If you consider the additional team in the playoffs, the only one this season would be Raiders.

Top Tier

One of the very few betting podcasts I take seriously.

Oh, I love the sharp calls jingle too.

Mahomes

Mahomes was the last young QB to win a SB without relying on a great defense… just a reminder!
