Best College Football Sports Betting Podcasts — Analytics, Matchups And More of Various Run Times

Tune in to improve your handicapping and bankroll.

‘The Sharp 600’

Listen on iTunes here and on Stitcher here

If you’re pressed for time, look no further than The Sharp 600. The show motto is, “Give us 10 minutes and we’ll give you the arsenal necessary to successfully navigate the sports betting market.” Sometimes they’ll run heavy to 15-18 minutes but you get the idea — it’s concise.

Brought to you by San Francisco sports radio host Covers.com analyst Joe Fortenbaugh, during football season you’ll find a pod once a week about the college football slate. Fortenbaugh provides a variety of statistics, trends and perspectives on the betting market, and will give out best bets for that week with close with quick justifications. Fortenbaugh brings in high-quality guests, which have included respected oddsmaker Chris Andrews, the sportsbook director of the South Point Hotel & Casino; also VSiN guys Joe Ostrowski and Gill Alexander, data analyst Ed Fang, pro handicappers and many more.


‘Bet the Board’

Listen on iTunes here and or at Soundcloud here.

A stark contrast from Sharp 600 timewise, Bet the Board is for folks who want to dive for serious depth and an understanding of college football matchups, personnel, coaching styles and tendencies, advanced stats, player mentalities, the betting market and beyond.  In their college football previews that ran between 90 minute and two hours, the tandem of host Todd Fuhrman and pro bettor/handicapper PayneInsider covered all the power conferences for examinations of key metrics, information and schedule analysis to inform totals and future bets. 

You can find Fuhrman on SI.com, CBS and now FOX Sports 1 on the new show “Lock It In.” During the season, they put out their college football podcasts on Wednesdays, covering exciting Top 25 clashes clashes and others games presenting value. They won’t cover every game, but select contests in greater detail. The pod is more of a college football full anal cavity with a typical run time about and hour or 1:15. Keep in mind they aren’t going to spoon feed you picks — rather, information and guidance, with picks here and there.


ESPN Chalk’s ‘Behind the Bets’

Listen on iTunes here and get the podcast archive at ESPN right here

Hosted by ESPN Chalk editor Ben Fawkes alongside fellow ESPN-ers Doug Kezirian, Chris “The Bear” Fallica, and “Stanford” Steve Coughlin, this foursome (not all at the same time) takes on the sports betting world — with a heavy focus on college football by Coughlin and Fallica. (BTB also covers an array of events and sports wagering topics.)

Stanford Steve appears on Scott Van Pelt’s “Bad Beats” segment and writes a weekly picks column during the college football season for Chalk. And you’ve seen The Bear on College Gameday on TV or perhaps in person. Put simply, these college football gurus are plugged into everything happening in the college game — from X’s and O’s, depth charts, coaching changes, team tendencies and more. They’re well-versed and have good chemistry, typically breaking down games involving teams in the power conferences — the SEC, PAC 12, ACC, Big 12 and Big 10. And from an information standpoint, they also have ESPN’s lineup of dedicated power conference reporters at their disposal.

Introducing ‘Cover City Podcast’: @EricSports Previews NFL With @OldTakesExposed

The post Introducing ‘Cover City Podcast’: @EricSports Previews NFL With @OldTakesExposed appeared first on SportsHandle.

Sports Handle is pleased to present the debut episode of Cover City: An NFL and NCAA Football Sports Betting Podcast, hosted by Eric Rosenthal (@EricSports). Rosenthal is a professional sports bettor who focuses on NFL and college football. He has wagered over $25 million over the past nine years, getting banned from many sportsbooks along the way.

For the debut episode of Cover City we are thrilled to have Fred Segal of @OldTakesExposed for the entire show. Segal talks NFL win totals and dishes about his favorite online scuffles, and talks about the interesting things he finds in his direct messages.

Cover City will air during the NFL and college football seasons on Mondays and Thursdays. Mondays shows will cover the preceding slate of games with takeaways and what to watch for going forward, with fun interviews with sports media/social figures mixed in; Thursday episodes it will deliver 100 percent on top game and picks for the upcoming college football Saturdays and NFL Sundays.

Next week we will provide additional listening options at iTunes and the cornucopia of other platforms that now exist.  Whether you’re listening at the gym or in the car (or on the can), we appreciate you tuning in and welcome feedback. Time codes for the episode follow below.
