When it comes to sports talk from a Las Vegas perspective, the Professor Vegas Podcast has you covered. The weekly audio sports betting magazine analyzes the NFL and college football from every angle. We discuss the NBA and NHL. And with the UFC presenting one of its biggest pay-per-views of 2015 this Saturday, we even analyze MMA wagering opportunities.
MMA expert Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer makes his first appearance on Professor Vegas this week. He breaks down the UFC 194 main event featuring Conor McGregor versus Jose Aldo, and offers his opinion on the inevitable Ronda Rousey-Holly Holm rematch. You might be surprised to hear Meltzer’s thoughts on the current betting line for Rousey’s shot at redemption.
Why is it the wrong time to be jumping on the Philadelphia Eagles bandwagon? Brian “Sherwood” Steinberg of Sportswagers.ca explains why he’s buying the Buffalo Bills this Sunday. Steinberg also digs into the upcoming Las Vegas Bowl with Utah facing rival BYU.
If you are playing season-long fantasy football, it’s playoff time. And that means you need injury updates and waiver wire/sleeper picks. There’s no better source than Bleacher Report’s Matt Camp, a regular contributor. He analyzes all the skill positions, with an eye on value, especially important for the weekly fantasy games.
And no Professor Vegas Podcast would be complete without a visit from South Point Hotel’s Jimmy Vaccaro, the dean of Las Vegas bookies. Vaccaro explains why his casino has finally made the undefeated Carolina Panthers the Super Bowl favorites, what’s behind the betting lines for the Oklahoma-Clemson and Alabama-Michigan State final four and what college bowl game has caught his attention.
A new Professor Vegas Podcast drops every Thursday and it’s available on iTunes and Play.it.
