Rob puts out the best betting show out there. I was a fan of Joe before this at times but Rob has been incredible. Yes his picks tend to be very solid, but it’s everything else he does that sets him apart. He makes you a smarter bettor who understands the industry overall. He challenges your way of thinking, and he opens your horizons. LOVE the listens and couldn’t thank him enough.
