Jason Smith: "Mickelson bet more than a billion dollars, think about that for a sec, a billion dollars on football, basketball, and baseball over the last three decades. Not a hundred thousand, not a million...over a billion dollars. There's also an allegation that he tried to place a $400,000 bet on Team USA in the Ryder Cup in which he participated. What we found out from the book, is that he bets sometimes as much as $220,000 to win $200,000, over a thousand times...he told guys to bet before him because when he does it, he's going to change the lines! All these stories about the sheer amount of bets he's placed over his career, you hear he's an addict...uh, not really. He's a professional gambler!"

On today's edition of The Jason Smith Show with Mike Harmon, Jason and Mike react to the story about Phil Mickelson's excessive gambling habits, with Jason explaining why he's not an addict...he's actually a pro!
