The NFL Divisional Playoffs take the sports spotlight this weekend with a pair of high-profile doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday. The Professor Vegas Podcast has every angle of the four win-or-go-home games covered, as guests Matt Youmans and Jimmy Vaccaro weigh in with their opinions and analysis.
Youmans, an ESPN Las Vegas radio host and Las Vegas Review-Journal betting columnist, not only offers his wagering advice on the NFL postseason games, but also reviews Alabama’s National Championship victory over Clemson.
Why does the Pittsburgh-Denver battle rate as the most intriguing of this weekend’s games? Can the Patriots exploit their big-play potential against the Chiefs in the first Bill Belichick-Andy Reid coaching matchup since Super Bowl 39? Can Green Bay maintain their suddenly improved balanced offense against Arizona? And why is Carolina, the team with the NFL’s best record (15-1), the smallest favorite of the four playoff games when they host Seattle? The answers to all these questions and much more when Professor Vegas breaks it down from a Vegas perspective.
Vaccaro, the South Point Hotel and Casino’s legendary bookmaker, uses his 40-plus years behind the betting counter to weigh in on the financial impact of last week’s action and predicts the closing lines for this weekend’s games.
And Professor Vegas himself reflects on the end of the college football season and explains why the first Saturday of September, 2016, could be the greatest day in college football history.
