Behavioral tells in football, baseball, and other sports, with Jon Hoefling

A talk with Jon Michael Hoefling, a sports analyst, about reading behavioral tells and indicators in football, baseball, tennis, and other sports. We focus on a 2021 story that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a tell: how he positioned his foot before a play was a strong indicator of whether he’d run or pass. We also talk about reading tells and predicting actions in baseball, tennis, and other sports. One story we talk about is Andre Agassi’s claim that he once had a very reliable tell on Boris Becker.

This is a reshare of a July 2021 episode. For more details about what we discuss see that page.
