Technical difficulties prevented us from having Brian Blessing on today’s edition of BangTheBook Radio. He was on a tight schedule and BlogTalkRadio’s BS forced him to miss out on today’s appearance. In any event, we had a strong show with just one guest, as host Adam Burke talked with Ralph Michaels of WagerTalk.com about college football and college basketball.
Pro handicapper Ralph Michaels had a lot of good insights for us on today's show. Adam and Ralph talked about the Army-Navy Game on Saturday and also took a look at some early bowl thoughts and betting angles. They talked about lines that stand out, motivation, home field advantage, and the rash of players skipping the bowl games to worry about the NFL. They also talked about college basketball and about an interesting spot for BYU that led into a chat about CBB rivalry games. They also talked about the Big Ten going back to non-conference and several other picks, previews, and trends.
