In this week's show, I'm joined by Mike Craig, a ten year veteran of making a living investing in the sports markets.  We talk about Alabama versus Washington and Ohio State versus Clemson, the two semi-final games for the College Football Playoff.  The show ends with Mike's powerful advice for those looking to start investing the sports markets.

This week's episode dives into two college football games during the first week of bowl season and the Oakland Raiders.  First, I discuss Houston and whether coach Tom Herman's absence will affect the outcome of their game against San Diego State. Second, we chat about the Oakland Raiders for the second straight week as I did a double take when comparing my prediction with the markets.  Last, we look at how match ups could affect Central Michigan against Tulsa in the Miami Beach Bowl.

This week's show discusses market rankings, or how I take closing point spreads from the markets and adjust for schedule to rank teams.  I look at the top 10 college football teams.  In addition, I highlight how NFL market rankings take a different approach to the AFC's best team than the pundits on ESPN.

On the eve of championship week, I discuss the college football playoff and who's likely to get in.  Ohio State, not a lock.  Michigan, not dead yet.  The show transitions to the NFL for a closer look at Atlanta, the surprising top team in my member rankings, and Washington.

In this week's episode, I discuss the chaos of the college football weekend.  We see how the losses of Clemson, Michigan and Washington relate to both poker and US presidential election.

In the second story, we look at Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and he was viewed before the NFL draft.  In addition, there are some interesting match ups in their game against Baltimore.

In the third story, we look at the college football playoff and how the committee gave the middle finger to Louisville.  Can the Cardinals still make the playoff?
