Hailing from Milwaukee, WI, Tony Sartori grew up in a household that made him fall in love with two things: sports and sports gambling. Over 20 years later, that love turned into a career as he covers sports betting for numerous outlets with over 500 articles published. Graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Economics, Tony combines the science of statistical analysis with the art of the eye test to give his best betting opinions. In his free time, Tony enjoys golfing, hiking with his dog, and re-watching "Breaking Bad" a thousand times.

During my freshman year of college, I started to take betting much more seriously and turned It from a hobby to a passion. Increasing my bankroll and unit size way more than I should have at the time, I got off to a hot start in the NHL season. After this hot start, there was a weeknight with an eight-game slate. Feeling invincible at the time, I threw down an eight-team moneyline parlay in an attempt to accurately nail the entire board. At 85/1, all eight teams I picked won. The rush of those two last West Coast games to close out the parlay was unlike anything I had felt in my life.

Hockey fans will remember one of the craziest games in recent playoff memory. In 2019, It was Game 7 of the first-round matchup between the Vegas Golden Knights and the San Jose Sharks. Vegas was up 3-0 halfway through the third period, and in my mind, my Vegas ML ticket was already cashed at that point as they had the outstanding Marc-Andre Fleury in net with a big lead. However, a highly questionable five-minute major penalty was assessed against Vegas and the Sharks scored four goals in a four-minute span! To make It even worse, Vegas tied the game back up with under a minute left to force OT, giving me hope once again only to lose in sudden death thanks to a game-winner from Barclay Goodrow.
