His methodology may be irrational, but his results are unmatched. Developed his own metrics on how to gauge sports plays based purely on coaching style and team strengths. Think Moneyball mixed with Any Given Sunday, you want him on your team. With his experience of 20 years in sports betting he's witnessed it all and doesn't fall for any traps set by the oddsmaker. A degree from the university of Miami in sports/player development gives him an edge on players mentality that's allowed him to carry that knowledge to battle with the oddsmakers.
