Veteran National Sports Host and Handicapper Gives Listeners the Day’s Bets in the Legal World of Sports Betting

New York, NY, August 20, 2018 – Westwood One, the largest audio network in the U.S., is launching a new podcast series focused on sports betting.

Ferrall will give bettors the lines and picks for all major games being played that day.

Starting 8/28, Ferrall on the Bets will post six 30-minute original podcasts a week, Tuesday-Sunday, at 7:30 am EST, so listeners have the data they want to place the day’s bets.
