On The Pro Football Handle, brought to you by PropSwap.com, Las Vegas-based sports talk voice Matt Perrault and veteran bookmaker Robert Walker of USBookmaking dive into select NFL games, line movements and bookmaker liabilities, plus greater sports betting topics and stories that may have nothing to do with football. Walker has seen it all behind the counter and Perrault the same from behind the microphone, so they’ll have you prepared for anything.
It’s Thanksgiving Week! None of these are marquee games, but it’s one of the three biggest handles of the year. Everyone’s on the favorite and the over. Then on Sunday, Robert wonders, have the Texans rattled off the most fraudulent 7-game winning streak in the history of sports, including Little League baseball? Steelers-Broncos will probably be the biggest decision of the week. Get the full breakdown.
