Guys & Bets (Episode 21): NFL Week 12 and CFB Rivalry Week, Aaron Kessler and Ben Eckstein

Holy cow, it’s Thanksgiving Week already! The Tuesday show is jam-packed with content to get you ready for the weekend while the Thursday show will focus on those NFL games on the board for the holiday.

It’s a massive week for college football and there is certainly no shortage of tasty matchups to choose from. First up, the guys hit the Big 12 to break down Oklahoma and West Virginia in a game that Oklahoma must win if it is to have any aspirations for the College Football Playoff. The same can be said for Washington State as it gets to host Washington in Pullman for the Apple Cup. Lastly in college football, it’s over to the Big Ten as Ohio State hosts Michigan in a game where the Buckeyes are lined as dogs for the first time in a loooong time.

When it comes to the NFL, the guys break down a matchup of playoff hopefuls as the Carolina Panthers get to host the Seattle Seahawks. Next up is the Sunday nighter between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings before the guys end up on the Monday nighter, which pits the Houston Texans against the Tennessee Titans.

The Tuesday show also means that the guys welcome Aaron Kessler, sportsbook director at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, to talk more football and today they touch on whether or not bettors have been flooding to back the best bet in college football, how much Alex Smith and Marcus Mariota are worth to the spread, the Chicago Bears, the Grey Cup and more!

Lastly, Team OddsShark member and syndicated oddsmaker Ben Eckstein joins us to talk all things Tiger Woods vs Phil Mickelson and also breaks down his favorite play for the Thanksgiving Thursday card.

A large show, but it’s just the appetizer before the feast that is the Thanksgiving show!
