The name “Seal” draws smiles from sports bettors around the industry and sends shivers down the spines of even the best online sportsbooks. A veteran handicapper of more than 30 years, Seal has etched himself into the fiber of the sports betting industry with an unmatched talent for dissecting information and statistics in order to find the very best value bets.

He developed Sportshandicapper.com to offer the industry something completely different from those other sports handicapping sites. Seal provides unrivaled information and insight into today’s biggest games and betting trends, showing you where and when the best online sportsbooks are vulnerable.

Seal whose nickname, given to him as a result of his physical appearance, became synonymous with winning during the early 90’s. More recently he became a household name in gambling circles after Gaming the Game – The Story behind the NBA Betting Scandal was released a few short years ago.

As discussed in the book Seal was an original member of the betting group the ‘Animals’. In the beginning as they destroyed bookmakers he was solely responsible for handicapping baseball. However, his ability to pinpoint important information on a daily basis from scouring local newspapers from across the country opened doors for him to start burying bookies with other sports as well. Within time he was handicapping everything from MLB pitcher fatigue to how weather affects NFL totals.

He was so good over the years that other betting groups began to take notice and he has become known as The Reader in the inner circles of sports betting. His hard work includes reading thousands of blogs, twitter feeds, forums and local newspapers on a weekly basis.

Currently, he focuses on NFL,NBA and MLB, and has for years been the major player behind the heavy line moves during preseason football. He works alone but uses his information and matches it against a group of very sharp industry insiders.

Seal’s weekly video show, the BettingEdge powered by SportsHandicapper.com, is released each Thursday afternoon. Joined by some of his industry insiders including, but not limited to Sideburns, Starsky, Jamie, Handicapper Chic and DTM, he gives insight into NFL, NBA, College Sports, MLB, NHL and the PGA.

In addition to reading, analyzing and handicapping he also communicates with some of the largest syndicates/movers who control the markets in Las Vegas and offshore. He will compare his information with these individuals to ensure that before he bets a game there will be very little or no opposition.

Seal is a major player in the sports betting world. When he decides to bet a game you can rest assured it will move “across the screen”. His knowledge and influence in the sports betting world is seen first-hand with the number of “followers” who live and breathe to get his information. His influence stretches from the East Coast to Las Vegas and offshore and even as far as the Asian markets.

Does he sell picks?

No, Seal has always viewed his work as sports investment. Subscribing to get Seal’s information means you will have direct access to the very best games he bets daily. He does NOT lose. He works hard to find the info, crunch the number and pick the very best spots to bet on a daily basis. He is not a tout but rather an inside the know handicapper/information purveyor who will ensure you are on the right side of each and every game he bets.

Does he win every game he bets?

Nobody does. The so-called handicappers who profess 80, 90 and even 100% wins are not for real. If they could win at that percentage why would they even be sharing their information? Subscribing to Seal’s website will help you make better decisions. His podcasts will give you an inside look at how and what he does. Plus, he will give you the edge to take your own bets/opinions and decide which ones you may want to “push” for a little more or perhaps “reduce” and save some money. Bet his games outright at the same number and you will profit over time with a win percentage close to 60%.
