This week, we bring on a man much smarter than us to help us pick the NFL games for the third weekend of the season. BetOnline.ag's Dave Mason joins the show to give his best bets for the Sunday slate, where the sharp money is going this weekend, and some upsets to look out for as well. Get set for the NFL weekend and win some money!
But until we get to opening weekend on October 24th, we'll still make NFL picks for the time being. But Ben and Michael react to the monumental, historic news that the Big Ten has reversed course and will play football this fall, starting next month. And also a full weekend preview of the second Sunday of NFL action. The research department has reported that Ben started the year a perfect 5-0 last week, can he keep the momentu...
Week one of the NFL season is underway. As you guys already know, the Chiefs started their Super Bowl defense with a win in a great game against the Texans on opening night, covering both the spread and hitting the over. Now, Ben and Michael dish out their picks for the full NFL weekend slate on Sunday and Monday night. Best Bets are back, Michael making picks just because of Nebraska are back, Ben most likely losing his Best Bet i...
So as we all know by now, the Big Ten will not be playing football this fall (99% positive as of this writing). So Michael and Ben want to get back to what they love, which is talking football and sports gambling. And damnit, that's what they will do! Accordingly so, the former Bleav in Big Ten Bets is now Bleav in NFL Bets. The guys look at some future odds for the 2020 NFL season and get you excited for the NFL to start in le...
Well, what can we say? Our worst fears have come true. The Big Ten has officially postponed its fall sports season, meaning there will be no football this fall, and let's be honest, probably no football this spring either. The overall sense is sadness, anger, desperation, etc. And sometimes those feelings get expressed in rants, as they do in this episode.
Would you look at that? The Big Ten released its conference-only schedule on Wednesday morning, so Ben and Michael actually get to talk about the conference they love, and throw a gambling spin on it all! The guys go through the Big Ten East division and set over/under win totals for each school's new schedule. A word of advice: take the UNDER on Rutgers.
More and more leagues among the Power 5 conferences are starting to release details on their football schedules for the 2020 season and it almost seems, this may actually happen?? Ben and Michael discuss the latest updates across the country, including the Big Ten. Also, don't miss their Best Bets for the weekend in MLB and the NBA because sports are back baby (at least for now)!!
Michael Snow is back and so too is Major League Baseball. No real news about the Big Ten to discuss, so Ben and Michael give you some MLB best bets for the opening weekend of action and the return of America's pastime. And the guys do compare some of the MLB teams to Big Ten programs, so there's that!
#GetBlochOnThePod makes his triumphant return to the show, as self-proclaimed degenerate gambler Max Bloch takes us through what he's been betting on this world with less sports. And no joke, the guy knows what he's talking about. From English Premier League soccer to KBO baseball, Bloch has adapted with the times and is still raking in the wins.
This was almost an instant reaction podcast from Ben and Michael, as they quickly recorded after the Big Ten's HUGE announcement that IF fall sports are played in 2020, it will be in a conference-only schedule. Is this a good sign? Probably not. Is this the first domino to fall? Most likely.
If college football is played in 2020, there is no doubt it will look unlike any other season we have seen before. But Sports Illustrated's Pat Forde took it one step further. He totally reimagined the landscape of college football conferences just for 2020, so we talked about the Big Ten teams in this alternate college football universe. Let's allow our minds to wander and think of what could be for the most unprecedent...
That is now the question, as football programs across the country are dealing with what to do as COVID-19 infections increase throughout America. Ben and Michael discuss if we will see college football in the fall, and what that schedule may look like if we do. Plus, the guys give their Best Bets for the weekend in sports that are actually happening this weekend: NASCAR and the PGA Tour.
Yes, you read that right. Sports are starting to make their way back, so although it's not the Big Ten, or even college sports, Ben and Michael give you best bets for some real sports action this weekend. Michael gives you his best for Nascar, and Ben gives you a best bet for the weekend of play in the English Premier League. Bleav in Big Ten Bets, presented by BetOnline.ag.

Given the current state of the country we live in, sports gambling didn't seem all that important this week. It's time to start having the long overdue, uncomfortable conversations. So this week's episode is really that conversation between two friends about taking the small, incremental steps to bring about positive change that is so desperately needed in America right now.
We continue to build the optimism for the 2020 college football season. Ben and Michael go out on a LIMB and give you the boldest, spiciest predictions for what 4 teams will make the College Football Playoff and who will be crowned national champion when all is said and done. Bleav in Big Ten Bets, presented by BetOnline.ag.
It's a reunion of sorts on this new episode of the Bleav in Big Ten Bets podcast.

This very well may go down in the Smithsonian as one of the best interviews in the history of podcasting. Dan Leach, sports talk radio extraordinaire at 97.1 The Ticket in Detroit, joins Ben and Michael to talk gambling, sports books in Puerto Rico, covering Super Bowls, Jim Harbaugh's khakis, and so, so much more.
