Episode 20. – Winners Galore; featured guest Kelly Stewart
Brian went 6-1 in college football last Friday and Saturday, following up that surge of winners with a 4-2 mark in Week 6 of the NFL season. Even better, Kelly Stewart (AKA: KellyinVegas) smashed the books with a 6-0 Saturday on the college gridiron! KIV is back for her third appearance on the Games Galore pod (a GG record, by the way), offering her thoughts on games for this weekend in both college and pro. Plus, B.E. and KIV discuss their nickel rematch wager that appears poised to go down to the wire. Sit back, relax and enjoy conversation on bets and ballgames on the 20th edition of the Games Galore podcast!

For listeners that like to skip around with the fast-forward button, here’s are some HIGHLIGHTS & TOPICS that might help that program:
Segment I of Harbo & B.E.: General re-cap of last weekend and review of my picks, Butch-isms, Butch 0-for-LIFE vs. Muschamp, Countdown until Butch’s Pink Slip, some thoughts on Scott Frost (headed to Nebraska surely, right?) that lead to a Lawrence Phillips convo and B.E.’s three most physical RBs in CFB history (16:00 mark), other ramblings, etc.
Back to the Lawrence Phillips convo (around 16:45ish): If B.E. had been Scott Frost when Phillips came knocking at the door looking for his girlfriend, yes, he would’ve jumped out of the window (even if it was a fifth-floor condo!).
19:00 mark: B.E. thinks Miami is a fraud.
22:30: WVU is being undervalued by oddmakers/everybody! B.E. thinks this is a Top-15 team without a doubt and there are multiple Games of the Year spreads this week in which gamblers can take advantage of bad numbers and back the Mountaineers.
24:45: Some tunes from The Haraway Brothers between Seg I & II.
Segment II (25:00 mark): Kelly joins the show. She’s leaning Texas this week and B.E.’s only confirmed play for Week 8 at recording time (Tuesday) was the Longhorns. KIV has Illinois on her Fade List, a great ATS stat on P.J. Fleck and compliments for Matt Campbell and the job he’s doing at Iowa St. We also discuss lots of Big 12, an ACC lean she has for this week, some NFL and more!
52:00: B.E. & KIV break down UF & K-St.’s remaining schedules since they’ve got a head-to-head rematch for a nickle (on their season wins – B.E. is getting credit for a ‘W’ on the cancelled No. Colorado game), as B.E. tries to avenge the loss of a similar bet in 2014.
1-hour, 5-minute mark: Jim Rode gets his name dropped and brief #BBN thoughts.
1-hour, 15-minute mark: B.E.’s imitation of Eddie O’s vintage quote: “One team, one heartbeat. Hey, Geaux Tigers.”
1-hour, 17:30ish: Arizona’s Khalil Hill is LEGIT!!
