College football starts on Saturday and we are going to do everything that we can to have you prepared for this week and beyond. On our Tuesday August 22 edition of BangTheBook Radio, we'll hear from professional handicapper and bettor Bryan Leonard of WagerTalk.com for this week's Sports Wagering Talk segment. We'll take a look at the futures and the Games of the Year bets that Bryan has placed and discuss what, if any, impact that has had on the betting lines and power ratings set by oddsmakers. They'll also talk about how to approach those teams going into the season. A quick look at the ACC will be an attempt to sort through the interchangeable Coastal Division. Finally, they'll look at Saturday's games with some quick thoughts and analysis.

In the second half of today's show, we'll focus on our conference specialization theme by chatting with Alex Nicolas of Miner Rush, the SB Nation home of the UTEP Miners. UTEP is a member of Conference USA, so we'll dig deep into that Group of Five conference to find some betting value on those teams. One is in action on Saturday, as Rice battles Stanford, so we'll talk about that game and also teams like Western Kentucky, Marshall, Middle Tennessee State, and Louisiana Tech.
