Expert Handicapper
Like a lot of people, I used to play some high school ball. While I was far from the biggest and rarely the fastest player on the field, what I lacked physically I more than made up for with strategy. My favorite part was always the postgame analysis with our coach. He would playback the footage play by play, move by move, and break it all down. Where we went right and where we went wrong, in meticulous detail. It just started to click for me, and I would begin watching not only my past footage but also the footage of better players to compare. Even watching college and pro clips, all to see how to get the slightest edge as a player to help the team. I had to work hard to remain competitive with my more athletically talented peers. I knew the odds were long, but I did hope that it might have been enough to make it onto a college team and maybe even Pro. Who doesn’t have that fantasy? Despite not making the cut, I never lost my passion for the game. It's become far more than just rooting for my team - I continue to deconstruct every game play by play. This got me my first real job as a sports journalist for a statewide publication, and as soon as I could legally bet, I got into handicapping. The analysis a good handicapper makes is not unlike what a good coach and player would do postgame, it's just applied differently and on a wider scale. I started to study all past footage I could of teams and players to start building up my understanding of their relative strengths, weaknesses, and capabilities. After a few months of test runs, I started making real money bets using my analysis. And here’s the thing, at only 18, I started to make real money from sports betting. I did the prudent thing and stayed in college despite my early success as a handicapper gaining the attention of several companies and websites looking to recruit me as a staff handicapper. It’s safe to say that I had a lot of options when I graduated, and I decided on Winners and Whiners as the best fit. I liked their commitment to providing insightful, comprehensive game analysis and predictions while remaining accessible to bettors of all skill levels. It’s important to me that as many bettors as possible can benefit from my talent, and more importantly to beat the books! I have a real knack for understanding the impact of every move, of every player on the outcome of a game. Knowledge established through extensive review of previous game footage as well as relevant stats, trends, and other tools. This allows me to build a very robust picture of the probable outcome of a game, often accurately predicting major plays made. I tend to limit my bets to only those I find a lot of value on. That can be anything, including props, but most often I will identify a game with a lot of compounding factors suggesting an extreme outcome in one direction while still having a relatively conservative line. This is where I consistently find profit for myself and my fans.

Baltimore Orioles +115
(MLB) Toronto vs. Baltimore, 10/03/2022 7:05 PM
Money Line: 115.00 Baltimore (Home)
I like the Orioles ML (+115) in this game at home against the Blue Jays. Toronto has already secured their Wild Card spot, as this game doesn’t mean anything to them. The Orioles have also been eliminated, but they are better at home and have the pitching advantage in this game. They will be starting Dean Kremer on the mound, as he is 8-6 with a 3.17 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. He has also won three of his last five starts and his ERA drops to 2.67 when he is at home. The Blue Jays will struggle against them and the Orioles will get another win near the end of the season. I expect Baltimore to come out and finish strong, as they still had a great season. They will also be going up against Jose Berrios, as he has struggled on the road this season. Outside of his home ballpark, he is 4-5 with a 6.75 ERA. In his last road start, he pitched for 2.0 innings and gave up seven hits and six earned runs. He will continue to leave the ball over the middle of the plate and the Orioles will get the job done for their home fans in this one. Baltimore is also hitting .268 as a team vs. RHP and scoring 5.43 runs per game in that stretch. They are seeing the ball great and they will continue to score throughout this game. Baltimore is 44-34 at home this season, as I see them finishing this season strong. Take the Baltimore Orioles (+115) in this game. They have the pitching advantage and they are seeing the ball great. No more pressure on the Orioles, as well. They can play freely and relax in this one.
