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".
I started sports handicapping when I was a Junior in college out of my apartment. My roomate was a Finance major and was very savy with numbers. I learned from him how to use previous stats and apply them to my analysis. This was all for fun until I realized that there is a legitamate market for my skills. The last 10 years I have been able to profit from my picks alone and have helped former college buddies do the same.

William Jacobs' background is in the tech industry and he was hit hard with an investment that went sour during the dot com crash in 1999-2000. William knows what it's like first hand to lose everything that he worked hard for and to have a dream shattered. This was the start of the William Jacobs SIC knows today.
William has been a gambler his entire life. Not entirely in the sense of cards or sports but in the sense that he is a risk taker, a true entrepreneur. His favorite proverb, "Fortune favors the brave". William takes risks in his life and he loves to win big. "The biggest win in my gambling career came when I went big on Boise State +7 over Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. Now that was a game that got my blood pumping and I sure cashed in on that pick. It made me appreciate the role of the underdog".
William lends his services for MLB, football and basketball and looks to anchor an aggressive SIC staff.

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.
