Jacob Martin is a passionate NHL handicapper from Toronto, Ontario Canada. Jacob has been handicapping NHL hockey for over 10 years and the last five years professionally through an independent hockey website based primarily out of Canada.
My professional training and experience comes from the financial world working with several online investment firms. A little over 8 years ago I began experimenting with online sports handicapping developing my own program to track results. This was exclusively for my benefit until I realized and understood the market for sports investors. I am thankful to have been given this opportunity with Documented Handicappers and I look forward to helping you gain from your sports investments.
Handicapping has been my profession since 1986 and I never had intentions of bringing my services online considering how much I enjoyed working with my private clientele. I'm not much for notoriety or celebrity, I simply like to focus on my job and make money.
Methodology: I am a situational handicapper which means I look for optimal line value with each selection I release. I am not concerned about trends and feel that every game is a new situation that must be dissected by the starting players, situation, home/away, weather conditions and most importantly the odds.
Scot Romas began submitting picks with SIC last November and posted a 60% in college basketball last season. Scot has been handicapping college hoops since 2007 and will provide members specifically with college basketball information. Scot was part of our farm league where he worked with our in house basketball and NHL handicappers to better develop his handicapping skills. Scot has signed on to work exclusively with Sports Investor Central providing information on NCAAB and NHL hockey.
Skip Breaze was one of the first handicappers to join Sports Investor Central and has become an integral part of our development. Skip is a long time friend of Teddy Vintage who runs his own service and was mentored by Teddy many years ago. Skip has been gambling and handicapping since he was 19. Attending school in the Midwest, Skip was able to intently watch Big 12 and Big 10 sports. Skip is a history buff when it comes to these conferences but his knowledge of all sports is why Skip is one of the best in the industry. Skip provides sports selections for MLB, NBA, NCAAB and NCAAF.
I have over 13 years experience in the world of sports wagering. Just like most professional sports tipping experts, I was mentored by a life long friend that made a living betting sports. He didn't sell his information but used his knowledge to bet his own money. Sports handicapping has become more popular with the internet and this has allowed our profession to have access to people and tools my mentor never dreamed of. I have known about the ATS Experts since 2008 and have through mutual friends was given an opportunity to submit my picks that were getting documented around 2010. After four years I have finally been given the opportunity of a lifetime to work exclusively with ATS and now provide my sports betting information to clients across the globe.
Mikhail Lebel has overcome many obstacles in his life and was fortunate to have moved to the United States when he was 11 years old. Mikhail was introduced to sports early in his childhood by neighborhood friends and class mates. From tennis to hockey, Mikhail was fond of the traditional Russian sports he grew up around.
When Mikhail moved to the United States he became infatuated with baseball, football and basketball. While he was aware of these sports in Russia, his interest grew when he became educated on them in the US.
Mikhail informed us his name translates to "Who is God" in the Russian culture and by monitoring his picks for the past year, it's evident he is superior. Mikhail has admitted his father played a very little role in passion for sports but as he looks back his father played an enormous role in terms of gambling knowledge.
"Of course I'm excited for this opportunity as I would have never thought in a thousand years I would be at this stage. I over came a lot in my youth and I think my strong work ethic and desire to succeed drives me to help others succeed".

Sports betting gives you a 50/50 chance of winning each wager - very similar to flipping a coin. This is essentially what the average square will do, flip a coin. However, if you were to narrow down your focus to only few games on the board which you have deducted a mathematical edge then you have increased your chances of winning by 20 to 30%. This is the value I bring to my clients on a daily basis with my sports handicapping expertise.
There are many ways to breakdown a particular matchup and come to a conclusion on a pick. Some handicappers prefer statistical analysis, regression analysis, team stats, team trends etc. I like to incorporate any system or stat that can provide an edge or provide insight to allow me to reach a conclusion. It's a more methodical approach but I feel that my success has come from uncovering the details.
I have seen a lot of handicappers run into problems when they commit to a single approach to handicapping or follow trends too closely. Trends are just a piece of the puzzle but in certain sports, such as college, there is a high turn over rate of players each year. How a team performed in 2014 may not correlate with the 2015 team and a new crop of players that are mostly underclassman with no experience. You must be able to determine which piece of information is relative to that particular game.
I understand that in order to be successful in any venture you must surround yourself with people that are smarter than you. With over 9 years as a professional sports handicapper I have been surrounded by some of the best the industry has to offer and this is the value that I provide for my clients.
Whether you are a novice bettor vacationing in vegas or a whale that only gets excited from a six figure payout, my services will be an asset to your investment.
My experience as a sports betting analyst is almost 15 years long. It started in early 2000 in Vegas after I lost my first job out of college due to downsizing. I was working as a waiter and betting sports on the side. The action was irrelevant to me, it was about the thrill of gambling. Fast forward 15 years and I have the opportunity of a lifetime advising clients through ATS Experts. My handicapping style has changed since 2000 but my desire to win will never leave me.
Pete Mac has been involved in sports handicapping since the late 1990s. Although Pete grew up in New York he is neither a fan of the Yankees or Mets and is a fan of any team he can find sufficient line value. "I'm not a New York sports fan and quite frankly I'm not a die hard fan of any sports team. My passion lies within spotting value in the lines released by Vegas. If I can find value in the Cleveland Browns and win, I have done my job. I truly feel that having an unbiased outlook allows me to utilize my handicapping methodology with a clear vision".
Pete is one of the most experienced sports handicappers on SIC and he looks forward to working with the other members to join forces with hopes of making SIC the top choice for our clients.
