I'm a graduate of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Since I was a child, I've always had a fervent passion for sports. Sports lines to me are akin to the Stock Market. I'm always looking for the only side: the right one. My selection style is founded upon self discipline, patience, and a mindset of detachment. The edge I derive there to be from a thorough analysis must be large enough to warrant action. I don't like to gamble, I like to win. It is my sincere hope that I can help you do the same.
