Chris has always had an affinity for two things: sports and solving puzzles. So naturally, sports betting became a passion. He gravitated to the use of analytics in college sports — then eventually all sports — and figured out how to use those to his advantage. As an EV+ bettor, he values the valuable insight gained in being data-driven, not number-driven. His work has been featured in various websites such as SBNation and 247sports. You can listen to his podcast, “What High School Did You Go To?” on Apple Podcast, Soundcloud, or where other podcasts are found.
