Dan Le Batard Show Mocks Cowherd’s Playoff Picks

I won’t call Colin Cowherd out for going 0-10 with his NFL Playoffs picks against the spread, because everyone hits a drought, but that won’t stop Dan Le Batard from doing it.

As the FOX Sports host struggled with his “Blazin’ 5” in recent weeks, The Dan Le Batard Show created a hilarious parity version of an ESPN 30 for 30 to highlight Cowherd’s feeble picks.

“What if I told you, for one shining moment, there was something at FOX Sports somehow worse than Skip Bayless and Jason Whitlock and Clay Travis,” a voiceover from Stugotz begins. “That the worst thing about Colin Cowherd, somehow wasn’t his opinion. That after consulting Vegas bookmakers, and researchers and a film study expert, and with a season’s worth of sample size, he picked 10 straight football games and got all 10 wrong.”

This is the fourth year Le Batard has tested Cowherd’s “Blazin’ 5” by selecting random celebrities each week to give their picks and see who has a better year – the non-expert celebrities, or the FOX Sports star? This is not a bit Cowherd actively participates in. 

Cowherd was about to win the season, giving him a four-year record of 3-1 against Le Batard’s cast of celebrities. But according to Le Batard, Cowherd “pooped the bed,” going 0-10 with his betting picks during the Wild Card and Divisional weekends.

“Cowherd was so replaceable at ESPN, that ESPN could have given his timeslot to any two clowns – and did,” Stugotz added in the fake 30 for 30. Cowherd’s 10am – 1pm ET ESPN Radio show was of course replaced nationally by Le Batard, Stugotz and the Shipping Container in 2015.

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

If you’re serious about Fantasy Football, the Sports Gambling Podcast Network is bringing back a tradition you’ll want to pay attention to. 

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
