Podcast Review: The Buffet with Chad and Scooch

If you’re new to podcasts or sports betting, the The Buffet with Chad and Scooch is a must listen.

You may recognize the names Chad and Scooch because The Buffet is a rebranded version of ESPN’s Behind the Bets.  Chad Millman, formerly editor in Chief of ESPN The Magazine, left the world wide leader to become head of content at The Action Network and he took his podcast with him. Millman clearly has a passion for and fascination with sports gambling that makes him the perfect host for this show. Earlier in his career, Millman wrote the book The Odds, a non-fiction book in which he spends a college basketball season in Las Vegas and shares the stories of several intriguing Vegas characters.

One of the featured characters in The Odds is Bob Scucci, currently the sportsbook director for Boyd Gaming. Scucci is a weekly guest on Behind the Bets. Millman and Scucci have great chemistry that makes the podcast not only informative and insightful but incredibly entertaining.

The Buffet is generally updated weekly depending on the time of year and sports season.

Millman does a great job with the podcast and The Buffet will quickly become a “must-listen” for anyone interested in the world of sports betting.

Pros:
-Top notch production
-Combines great information with humor
-Behind the scenes Vegas perspective

Cons:
-Once a week seems too infrequent. We want more Scooch!
