    he didn't even bet carolina straight up, which would've made money. he might lose his panthers bets despite their big upset.

    I have been listening to the TV Prestige Pod for White Lotus. I continue to admire Joanna Robinson and starting to think she may be the best contributor on the Ringer. It sucks that she has to share the pod with Bill. He just isn't smart enough to analyze a show like that.

    I skipped the NBA talk and soccer talk, should've skipped the whole ep

    - Bill and Warren are smarter than half the NFL head coaches in the league
    - Sharp studies more film than NFL coaches
    - Sharp has told NFL teams they should make their HC take crisis management classes
    - Sharp has told NFL teams they should make their HC play Madden
    - every team should have someone who was elite at Madden on staff to help their coach

    maybe his million dollar picks will be better this week because he won't have every bet tied to NE


    good job by Bill to get the narrative that when NE loses, it is because they 'blew a winnable game'

    $1M - Raiders (-1) (only if Mike Williams is inactive)

    $500K - Bengals (+8.5) & Holy Cross Football (-1.5) 6 Point Teaser = -135 odds

    Sal: I get you here. I had Bills -8. The line is -9.5

    Bill: THAT IS TOO HIGH


    [...]

    a few minutes later

    Bill: hmmm. I am 2 points off on all of these!

    yep, when he said "Ainge stuck with them when people were looking to trade one of those guys," Bill neglected to mention that was him.

    Also, amazing in the rewatchables wen Bill made fun of his wife for not being able to pronounce an actresses name. And CR said YOU OF ALL PEOPLE MAKE FUN OF HER FOR THAT?

    Based on Ryens comment and noiseless laughing I think he was making a joke about “poppers” on life advice when Kyle mentioned them.

    But then again neither of these guys knew “six to midnight”.
