It’s no secret that I’m the industry’s #1 underdog specialist and my success is very well documented. I spent nearly 20 years on Wall Street and my clients were some of the wealthiest people in the world and included high-profile athletes, entertainers and business owners. During my tenure I was deemed an expert and published many times. I even spent much of my time on the road mentoring colleagues and as a motivational speaker. I attributed my success to my ability to find real value in stocks before prices moved higher, in effect the “underdogs”, creating substantial opportunities for my clients and ultimately resulting in significant wealth. I chose to become a Professional Handicapper because of my love for sports and my understanding of the markets and the inefficiencies that exist.
My philosophy was this; I could apply my Wall Street models with success to any industry so long as a market existed, and if a market exists then there are inefficiencies that exist which, in turn, create substantial opportunities to capitalize. I understood that in sports betting a “market” DOES exist–Vegas creates it by setting odds and matching winners and losers and collecting a “vig”, similar to Wall Street with the stock markets and matching buyers and sellers and collecting a “vig” (markup or commission). I proved my theory right in a very short period of time. In fact, I capitalized personally through my own account and even started sharing publicly in one of the the largest sports forums more than a decade ago. Long story short, I posted 33 football picks and went 30-3, all dogs, and most won outright including many double digit dogs. Forum members were in awe by what they were witnessing and were trying to contact me through that forum’s messaging system. The “powers-to-be” of that forum took notice of my success and the overwhelming number of people trying to message me and, as a result, approached me privately and wanted me to become one of their primary sports analysts but I politely turned them down. Unfortunately, they didn’t like it and banned me from posting there permanently. This word traveled throughout the industry and other forums followed and would ban me before I could even post once and this is why we are not even allowed to post in Service/Web Promotions areas of many of the forums.
