Hello, my name is Blake Lederman, I am majoring in Business Management, minoring in Gaming Management at the University of Nevada, Reno. I am originally from Las Vegas, NV and have been interested in gambling ever since I could understand it. I have an athletic background and am a sports fanatic. After completing my education I’m looking to start my career in the gaming industry and eventually own my own business. The fun, fast lifestyle of this industry is very appealing to me, and the money that comes along with it helps also.
I intend to blog about sports betting, focusing on college football (NCAA FB), professional football (NFL), and professional baseball (MLB). I will also continue to write about gaming in general and what is going on with the industry as I am minoring in that field. I will break down odds through statistical analysis, talk about parlay cards, straight bets, money lines verses run lines, over/unders, and so on. If none of this makes sense now, do not worry because it will shortly.
One thing stands out from what I have experienced through my sports betting, and all gambling for that matter: there is no such thing as a safe bet, or a “lock” as some people like to say. However, there is such a thing as smart betting. This is the type of advice I intend to provide; smart betting based on statistics and records, instead of just pure luck or hunches. Educating readers about casino games and odds so they do not feel overwhelmed or “hustled” when they walk into/out of a casino will also be useful. Eventually, the goal is to have readers choosing smart picks that leaves them walking out with some extra ca$h in their pockets. I’m excited to be getting started and will talk to you shortly.
Look out for Stanford this year; they are 2-0 thus far, impressively covering the spreads.
