According to ESPN, Goldberg correctly predicted NFL games more than 50 percent of the time during 15 of his 17 seasons with the network. He was also a contributor for ESPN’s horse racing coverage. Though he was no longer full-time at ESPN, Goldberg contributed to the network’s “Daily Wager” show and also appeared on CBS Sports HQ.

Goldberg, a former Dolphins reporter who broke the news of Don Shula’s retirement, put $200 on Odell Beckham scoring the first touchdown in Super Bowl 2022 and told the Sun-Sentinel he won $1,400 on the bet.
