NFL Week 2 Preview: Let's spread things out

Two episodes in one week? You're welcome . . . Rotem and Frank are back in the "stu" to dish on all things Week 2 in the NFL. But first, the guys have to recap some of the biggest action from Week 1, including some notable games that they correctly and incorrectly predicted. Week 1 was great, but Week 2 might just be even better. The guys once again run through all 16 games on this week's slate and predict the winners of each matchup, as well as discuss which side of the point spread they're leaning towards. Which 0-1 teams can bounce back and get in the win column? Which 1-0 teams can remain undefeated? Additionally, some interesting props are broken down throughout the episode, so be on the lookout for those as well.

NFL Week 2 Preview: Let's spread things out

NBA Conference Finals Preview

After a brief pause from basketball talk, Rotem and Frank are back on bubble watch in this episode of PIAIL . . . The guys preview and share their thoughts on what should be an incredibly entertaining pair of conference finals series. Unfortunately, at the time of recording this episode, Game 7 of the Clippers/Nuggets series had not happened yet, so the Lakers' eventual opponent in the WCF had not yet been decided. Have no fear, though, because the fellas previewed both potential scenarios. Before that, though, Rotem and Frank dished on a very compelling ECF matchup between the Heat and Celtics. Which team has the advantage heading into the series and why? How should Brad Stevens and Erik Spoelstra approach their strategy? All that and more in this in-depth breakdown. Listen in!

WCSF Preview + Round 1 Recap

Messi, ETIII & ECSF Preview

A Saturday surprise? You betcha! Rotem and Frank are back after a brief hiatus and have a jam-packed episode on deck. First, the guys begin by paying their respects to the great Chadwick Boseman, who passed away on Friday night after a four-year battle with cancer. Rotem and Frank touch on Boseman's impact on the sports world, including his portrayal of Jackie Robinson in the movie "42." The biggest sports news of the week was the Lionel Messi reportedly eyeing an exit from Barcelona. Where could Messi end up playing next? Rotem and Frank dish on the odds. Then, the guys discuss where now-free agent Earl Thomas could end up after being released by the Ravens. The Cowboys are the odds-on favorite, but what other teams make sense? Other discussions include NBA head coaching openings in both Indiana and Philadelphia, as Nate McMillan and Brett Brown were both fired earlier this week. Which candidates make sense and what are the odds? You'll have to listen to find out. Finally, the fellas break down a wild week in the NBA bubble and preview the upcoming playoff series in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, featuring the Celtics vs. Raptors and Bucks vs. Heat.

MLB in limbo, NFL Top 100 & NBA rejuvenation

Happy August, everyone ... In this week's episode, Rotem and Frank swing back into the old routine a bit for the first time in months. NBA games are back and the betting fever is real, but have no fear - the guys are here to break down some of the biggest matchups this week: Mavericks vs. Clippers, Celtics vs. Raptors, and last but not least, Spurs vs. Pelicans. Before that, though, the fellas discuss the future of the MLB season, which is suddenly hanging by a thread just a couple weeks after it began. The coronavirus has begun to strike within ballclubs like the Marlins and Phillies, but commissioner Rob Manfred is adamant that the season is going to proceed. Rotem and Frank share their thoughts on what might happen. Additional topics include the NFL Top 100 list, which was announced a few days ago, as well as a brand new segment known as "What are the odds?".
