There has been no looking back and due to his relentless and tedious work ethic he has catapulted himself into one of the national leading all sports analysts.
 
2. Who has most influenced your handicapping career?
There is no one person that has influenced Rob/s Handicapping Career. Rather, it has been the trust worthy database. When Rob is up at night and ponders.

4. What is the biggest score you've made in your sports wagering career?
The Biggest score was actually the year Funny Cide won the Kentucky the Derby, Lets just say the Exotics made for a really great summer.

5. What is the worst bad beat you've suffered in your sports wagering career?
Im sure, many would agree, there really is no one that takes the cake. Losing on a hail Mary, or a balk in the 9th inning, a Half court buzzer beater or an empty net goal. They all sting. You dust yourself off and enjoy the ones you hit.

6. Who are your favorite NFL and College Football teams, and why?
In the NFL Rob is a life long Jets fan who grew up in NY and was enamored by the Defense which was known as the Sack Exchange in the 80/s. Though they have gone through a myriad of tough times Rob hopes to see his team prosper under coach Saleh.

In College Football Rob roots for the Ohio St Buckeyes. As a fan of the BIG 10 Conference Rob has always been impressed at how Ohio St is a contender each and every year and gets the talent to succeed without ever needing a rebuild.

7. Which NFL and College Football teams do you feel will be the biggest surprise in 2022?
In the NFL our Surprise team will be the Carolina Panthers. They have the roster to make noise and with a Tampa team that may slip a little, they should be real contenders in a division where both the Saints and Falcons are not expected to be as good as years past.

Our College Football Surprise will be Miss. St. Mike Leach is in year 3 and and has 17 starters back including a QB in Will Rogers that threw for nearly 5000 yards. On defense led by Defensive coordinator Zach Arnett this team is already vastly improved. Leach has an offense that can score fast and a Top level Stop unit. The Bulldogs will have plenty of bite this year.

8. Which NFL and College Football teams do you feel will be the biggest disappointment in 2022?
In the NFL Seattle looks to be a team we feel will be a big disappointment. With the Trade of Qb Russel Wilson, Seattle will have a loss on and off the field as his presence will be hard to replace and if they get off a to bad start, it will be a long season.

The College Football disappointment team will be Iowa St. After a solid run for the Cyclones they are brining back just 8 starters and will have to replace All time program leading passer Brock Purdy and their all time leading yards from scrimmage player in Breece Hall. On defense they need to replace 8 starters. The Cyclones may be nothing more than a passing breeze in what will be a highly contested Big 12 this year.

9. Do you feel the College Football Playoff should expand, and if so to how many teams?
No, No matter how much you expand it, there will still be teams left out who feel they were deserving. Leave the playoff as is.
 
10.What is your best handicapping advice heading into the 2022 football season?
Stick to a game plan and dont be enticed into impulse In game play wagers, at least until we develop a real time database to make applicable Player and team queries.
