About the Show/Jimmy Mac

Jimmy Mac is back – with his own Internet radio show and podcast! He spent several years as a guest handicapper on CRN Digital Talk Radio’s PM Show with Michael Horn, appearing alongside other mainstays such as former NFL legend Fred Dryer. But Jimmy’s fans wanted more – they wanted more of his insight. They wanted more of his unique charm and banter.

They wanted their Jimmy Mac.

The former bookie is a native of Jersey (“The only state which you don’t have to say the ‘New!’”) and grew up with the real Sopranos. He even dated at least one of their daughters.

His father owned a horse meat slaughterhouse, so Jimmy is an expert with the ponies – though is still awaiting an endorsement deal from PETA.

He was excited to get into the publishing world but then found out what “bookmaking” really means. Nevertheless, it was a fateful miscommunication as he quickly discovered that his true talent was predicting the outcomes of sporting events.

He is both feared and revered in Las Vegas, where he still receives comps from some of the best casinos in town. Though now retired from the bookmaking business, he runs a very successful light bulb distribution company and seemingly watches more college and professional football games than are actually played. It’s how he knows the winners – which he brings you every week on Jimmy Mac Picks.
