On this episode of The Football Analytics Show, I talk with Joe Fortenbaugh, host of The Sharp 600 podcast and football betting expert. Among other topics, we discuss:
- The amazing way in which Joe broke into the sports world. A must listen whether you want to follow in his footsteps or land a date after getting a number. Listen at 2:20.
- How the new podcast The Sharp 600 came about. 600 refers to the number of second of each show.
- Joe’s take on how analytics has become a part of sports media and betting.
- The NFL team that has most surprised Joe early this season
Joe also had an awesome book recommendation that reminds us to keep things in perspective.
After the interview, I do my own segment on NFL pass rankings by adjusted yards per play. This includes a discussion of how I develop a total points prediction for Jacksonville at Pittsburgh this weekend.
You can read about my NFL pass rankings here, or listen at 28:51.
