Mike Stone Wins $50K In Circa Sports Pick ‘Em Contest

“I was just very lucky. I didn’t do a lot of research, I just went top of the head.”

Sports betting is a hard industry to be truly profitable in, but there has been one Detroit media member that has been raking in the money to this point in the NFL season.

Detroit radio legend Mike Stone, who is the co-host of 97.1 The Ticket’s morning show, was convinced to join the Circa Sports Million III contest by a friend at the station.

Stone refers to himself as a novice bettor, but he went in with a friend from college to split the $1,000 entry fee. The duo then went on to go 18-2 in the first quarter of the contest on spread picks, and netted $49,350 to split with his friend as they finished in a five way tie for first place.

“I was just very lucky. I didn’t do a lot of research, I just went top of the head,” Mike Stone told the Odds On show of VSiN last week. “My college friends call me Mush. Everything I do is wrong. They ask me what’s going to happen, they go the other way.”

Stone is still doing very well in the contest, currently sitting in a tie for ninth place after a poor week 6.

“Everybody complains about their bad beats, but we have ‘good beats,’ too,” Stone said. “It’s so bizarre. Because I am really not very good at this.”

Regardless, any bettor would be extremely happy to sitting at a 23-6-1 record on spread picks to start the year, and after winning nearly fifty grand I am sure that Mike Stone can sleep easy however the rest of the season goes for him.

Dan Patrick Tries To Steal Mike Ryan From Dan Le Batard

“I’m going to be a Dan you love.”

Published

on

Last month, longtime Dan Patrick Show staffer and “Dannette” Andrew “McLovin” Perloff departed the show for the greener pastures of CBS Sports Radio and a show of his own with Maggie Gray.

For now, there still hasn’t been a replacement for Perloff found, and his chair on the show’s set remains empty. On Thursday, as part of a bit, Patrick made an attempt to secure a replacement while appearing on The Dan Le Betard Show with Stugotz.

That replacement was Le Betard’s executive producer Mike Ryan. Dan Patrick joined the show acting like nobody told Le Betard the news.

“What am I missing here? I apologize, because Dan was surprised when I said I have the ‘Dannettes’ here,” Patrick said. “I got Seton and Paulie ready to welcome Mike Ryan to take over for McLovin’s seat here.”

“We’re going to treat you with respect,” he added. “I’m going to be a Dan you love.”

After some back and forth, and much to the continued confusion of Le Betard, Ryan said the idea of joining Patrick’s operation was appealing.

“This is interesting, and you’re on television, which is something I miss,” he said.

Patrick continued the point that Mike Ryan would be welcomed with open arms and made a co-executive producer of his show.

“Don’t worry about any of this nonsense,” he said. “I’m sick of the shit that these guys put you through…The gloves are off, Dan!”

Le Betard said he held Patrick in high regard because Patrick helped him make the transition from ESPN to DraftKings. He told Patrick they couldn’t be friends anymore with this betrayal.

“You’re raiding my family! What are you doing?” Le Betard said.

Dan Patrick finished off the bit with one last jab before Le Betard told him to go away.

“This is the transfer portal of radio shows,” he said. “I just wanted to let you know.”

Doug Franz Launching Sports Betting Podcast, ‘Props Arizona,’ With Sean Lockhart

“I appreciate Doug & Wolf listeners more than they’ll ever know, and I’m excited for them to experience my new podcast Props Arizona.”

Following his dismissal from Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, Doug Franz has found a new gig. Franz will join sports gambling expert Sean “Papa Bear” Lockhart to host a new podcast for Props.com titled Props Arizona.

Franz was a mainstay on Phoenix sports talk radio, co-hosting The Doug and Wolf Show in the market for 15 years. Parent company Bonneville Phoenix said Franz would be moved to a “digital role” in shuffling the Arizona Sports daily lineup last August.

But Franz said he was effectively fired. Soon after leaving 98.7 FM, he launched a daily podcast titled Doug Franz Unplugged.

Lockhart has been a mainstay in Arizona, consulting on sports betting and sales since graduating from Arizona State. He’s provided analysis for several sports betting podcasts and digital shows, in addition to his own website, for several years.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside Sean on this new podcast,” said Franz in the official announcement from gambling media company American Affiliate. “I appreciate Doug & Wolf listeners more than they’ll ever know, and I’m excited for them to experience my new podcast Props Arizona.”

For American Affiliate, which has several sports betting and investment properties in its portfolio including BetPrep and Wagers, Props Arizona is the first regional (or state-exclusive) spinoff of its Props City podcast.

Props Arizona is set to launch at the end of January. The show will be available on all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts and Spotify. A teaser for the show is currently online for download.

Michael Irvin: ‘Shan & RJ Start National Conversations’

“Y’all stir the pot a lot on the national scene. Every time I’m out there I gotta hear ‘Jerry said on Shan and RJ 105.3’.”

Michael Irvin makes regular appearances on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. He is one of the many stars associated with the Dallas Cowboys that make time to talk to the hosts on the team’s flagship station. On Thursday morning, The Playmaker joined Shan & RJ and told them to be careful with the words they choose.

Irvin came on following a discussion of Mike McCarthy’s final conversation with the media for the season. During the segment, one of the host’s said it was the Cowboys’ coach’s “final conversation.” Irvin said that statement needed some clarity.

“You should have added ‘of this year’,” he said. “Because the national guys, they’ll pick it up and run with that.”

It isn’t just a matter of what was said. Michael Irvin says that the national media will pay attention to who said it was McCarthy’s final conversation with the media and jump to conclusions.

“Y’all stir the pot a lot on the national scene. Every time I’m out there I gotta hear ‘Jerry said on Shan and RJ 105.3’.”

The hosts laughed as Irvin made the declaration. Maybe they enjoyed the characterization. Maybe they knew he was telling the truth.

Plenty of national headlines have been generated by appearances from Jerry and Stephen Jones on the station. Although, to be fair to Shan & RJ, K&C Masterpiece has been at the center of plenty of those conversations too.

That didn’t stop Michael Irvin distilling Shan & RJ’s role in the national media conversation about the Cowboys to a simple sentence: “Y’all starting mess out here.”
