Brian welcomes featured guest GambLou (of GambLou.com and twitter handle: @GambLou) in Segment 1 and they break down Saturday's stacked UFC 231 card. B.E. comes out strong in Segment 2, laying waste to Kirby Smart's unfathomably disastrous decision to fake a punt at midfield on 4th and 11 in a tie game with three minutes left. Next, you know who's next! OSCAR! Who knew this was going to happen? Oh, that's right, we did as we've discussed it on basically every GG pod all fall about how I slapped 'The GUARANTEE' on him quitting on the F-eyes. We also hit on a few bowl games, some college basketball futures, as B.E. likes The 'Cuse at 50/1 odds. This and much more in Games Galore 57. We hope you enjoy!
After a holiday hiatus, The Games Galore podcast is back with GG 56. Matt Zemek and Christopher Smith are our guests as we dive into Friday and Saturday's conference championship games. Jason Floyd of The MMA Report and RadioInfluence.com is in for Harbo to produce and talk UFC (in the final segment). Brian shares a number of his picks for the weekend. We also hit on the Coaching Carousel, Rivalry Weekend and much more. Pull up a chair, pop a beverage and enjoy Games Galore 56!
No script, no guests, just non-stop talk about bets and ballgames. Holy Zion Williamson! My goodness, is that guy a monster or what? Brian hits on the pimpslap Duke handed out last night -- could the Blue Devils be as nasty in hoops as 'Bama is in football this year? Here come my Falcons! They've won three in a row, added Bruce Irvin to the roster and Deion Jones started practicing today. The Gators? Um, let's just say B.E. is ready for some Kyle Trask. Games Galore 55 has got you covered for picks, injuries and more in hoops, pigskin and a little UFC convo.
Although Kentucky is still in the mix in the SEC East, the winner of the Florida-Georgia showdown Saturday in Jacksonville seems most likely to represent the division in Atlanta during the first weekend of December. Brian and Jason Floyd discuss this game and many other in what is a stacked college football card in Week 9.
Games Galore 53 gets started with Jason Floyd and Brian hitting on 'overs' galore for the Falcons and Buccaneers, in addition to the Saints' brutal scheduled over the next few weeks that could tighten up the NFC South race. They also review what we saw in the UFC 229 headliner and ponder the future of both McGregor & Khabib.
Jay Greeson of Press Row and the Chattanooga Times-Free Press, hits on what he saw at this alma mater this past Saturday when Auburn took an unfathomable defeat as a double-digit home favorite to the Vols, who had lost 11 consecutive SEC games previously. Greeson and Brian hit on the college hoops corruption case and what they think of Holier-than-Thou Coach K and his weak-ass remarks this week that Yahoo's Dan Wetzel smashed in a recent column. Hell, even the Boston Globe's spectacular journalism in its new series of analysis of the Aaron Hernandez Saga came up. And yes, of course we got to football with Jay hitting on his new favorite team -- for our purposes, of course -- Utah St. Jay's also bullish on Harbo's squad that wears maize and blue at Sparty this weekend.
Not many in the industry are as sharp as Brad Powers, and he certainly delivered during his segment. Brad gave out lots of picks and opinions, talked about Ohio St.'s testy trip to West Lafayette and gave his thoughts on the Gators, Alabama and even some MACtion.
Pull up a chair, folks, even crack a colllllld beer if your feel like it and get some Games Galore 53 up in your program before even mulling making your first wager for this weekend!
It's a great time of year to be a sports bettor. There's monster football cards coming up this weekend, in addition to one of the biggest fights in MMA history. We bring in GambLou to break down UFC 229 and you know he has some underdog suggestions. Las Vegas sports radio titan Dave Cokin made his GG debut and nailed it with a plethora of sharp opinions. Pull up a chair, people. Non-stop talk about bets, ballgames and fights are in store for Games Galore 52!
Games Galore 51 is here to get you ready for bets and ballgames for Week 5 of the college football season and Week 4 in the NFL. Papa Harbo had Daddy duties today so Jason Floyd of RadioInfluence.com and The MMA Reports is here to produce and talk a little UFC, semmies and the Bucs, who let me down on MNF. I'm off a 5-1 week in college and went 3-2 in the NFL on Sunday. Christopher Smith of MyBookie.ag (formerly of SEC Country) has made it a good habit of feeding GG listeners lots of victories on his guest appearances and is here to do that once again. Also, Mark Franco of VegasInsider.com is off a 7-0 week in college and is cashing chicken parm at a 65% in CFB so far. Plus, Jason and I talk a little UFC with this kinda-sorta-somewhat big event lined up for "6 of October." Pull up a chair, ladies and gentlemen. This might've been the longest G-Galore ever recorded!
Games Galore finally has its first sponsor and we love us some Vivid Seats! You'll hear more about Vivid Seats during the show, one which goes all over the place with pigskin, Conor McGregor-Khabib Nurmagomedov stuff and the return of Jon 'Snitchin' Jones. VSIN's Matt Youmans joins us and has lots of picks and opinions. Oh, and back to the title of GG 50, there are lots of sore eyes and sour faces floating around Tallahassee this week. Remember, I've spent the past month and change talking about how Syracuse's Eric Dungey is the most important player to his team than any other in the country. On that note, Dungey left the Orange's game vs. the semmies with a 3-0 lead. Final? The 'Cuse by a 30-7 count with a RS freshman under center. And here comes Sutton Smith and the Huskies. Week 4 of college, Week 3 of the NFL, Jon Jones is a snitch needed stitches and Conor-Khabib is 16 days away. Pull up a chair, folks. We got ya covered with GG 50!
Brian's South Carolina pick over Georgia was obviously a dud. A few other plays were errant as well, leaving the Games Galore co-host in bounce-back mode as we head into Week 3 of college football and Week 2 in the NFL. Brian shares lots of picks for this week and explains why he's on them. There's lots of injury news, too, and you certainly don't want to place any wagers without knowing this information. And yes, he's got a few words for Florida QB Feleipe Franks about how to handle time and score at crunch time. Brian dishes on the woes of FSU, Kansas St., Texas, Arizona and UF. He gives props to the likes of Hawaii, Mississippi St., Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M and Arizona St. We mix in a little more NFL convo than normal, breaking down Kansas City at Pittsburgh, Carolina at Atlanta and lots of injury news and ATS factoids. Don't make any bets until you listen to Games Galore 49!
Games Galore 48 is here and there's much to discuss. The big losers in Week 1 included Texas, FSU, Miami, Michigan and UCLA. Brian is delighted to give his thoughts on all of those squads, especially both of them that hail from the Sunshine State. Big winners? Certainly LSU! Joe Burrow? Flashy numbers weren't needed in that pimpslap of the 'Canes, but the grad transfer from Ohio St. passed the eye test with flying colors. This just in: Va. Tech's Justin Fuente can coach, although that was a horrible decision not to take the field goal to go up 17 late in the third quarter. The Hokies were big winners, Oklahoma looked great, as did Syracuse's Eric Dungey and Auburn posted a great victory over Washington. Jay Greeson joins us for nearly an hour in the second segment and we cover just about everything -- from Oscar Meyer to Cole McDonald, to Ed Orgeron and well beyond. Buckle up, folks, Games Galore 48 brings the heat!
