Micah Joe

Micah Joe is a professional gambler living in Las Vegas. He received his Bachelor of Education from Morehead State University near his hometown. Micah worked in the Kentucky school system for seven long years before retiring from teaching and coaching to move to Vegas, where he successfully pursues his lifelong dream of making a living solely on gambling. Infatuated with college basketball at a young age, Micah focuses most of his work on adapting and transitioning the models he has developed for profitably betting the sport. Never stagnant, he is constantly innovating the system to evolve with the ever-changing game of college basketball. Combining the models with opinions from tireless research, he takes a unique approach to volume betting. This approach has been described as a ‘machine-gun’ effect. Identifying the inefficiencies in the derivatives of the market has been the key, allowing for a higher volume of plays per day. Betting first halves and second halves, sometimes having nearly 200 individual bets on a college basketball Saturday. He also incorporates this same method into successfully betting NBA and WNBA first halfs. Starting the research of over 300 college basketball teams in early September allows Micah to stay a step ahead early in the season. He uses his own personal approach to identify the current form of teams during the summer foreign trips. He has an exhaustive knowledge of how teams are performing during their preseason exhibition games and his diligent research is profitable and extremely rewarding. This has provided Micah with opportunities for future bets such as: 50-1 on Connecticut to win the national championship in 2014; 50-1 on Gonzaga in 2017, which was made on Thanksgiving day in 2016 and hedged before the championship game due to his opinion that UNC was the better team; 28-1 on Villanova last year made in October of 2017, which was clearly the best team wire to wire. Micah is also extremely passionate about soccer, specializing in ‘one-off’ international events. His meticulous research is beneficial on youth events, such as the Under20 women’s World Cup, the UEFA Under19 championships, Olympic Soccer, etc. The uniqueness of soccer betting provides Micah limitless chances to take advantage of the market. Which he is eager to share with fellow enthusiasts at his newest venture with BettorIQ.

Eric Waz

Eight years ago, a sports fanatic and bettor from a small town in Indiana decided to quit the corporate world and follow his dreams. He gave up everything he was familiar with and took a chance at making it big amidst the glittering lights of Las Vegas. It’s been a wild journey and professional sports bettor Eric Waz (who goes by “Waz”) has made all of his dreams come true with hard work, dedication and a passion for learning. During his time in Las Vegas, Waz has formed relationships with many of the top gamblers in the industry and also notched several big accomplishments. In 2011, Waz took home the NFL Last Man Standing title ($86,000) at Station Casinos by beating out over 4,200 entrants for the winner-take-all prize. He followed that up with a 6th place finish ($40,000) in the prestigious NFL Super Contest in 2012, including a cash in the three-week mini-contest. Overall, Waz has notched FIVE cashes in the NFL Super Contest in seven years. That’s consistent winning in the toughest sport around. As a professional sports bettor, Waz has paid the bills with gambling winnings since moving to Las Vegas in 2010. He’s a true grinder that is constantly looking for any edge he can find. One of the major strengths Waz brings to the table is the math skills he developed in the finance world, allowing him to build sophisticated models to attack each and every sport. He handicaps all of the major sports including NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, college football, as well as his personal favorite – college basketball. Waz attributes his success to his unique combination of building models, gathering tons of information on teams via articles and blogs, his powerful handicapping tools, intently watching games and plying his gambling skills in the ever-changing betting marketplace. He works extremely hard to not only find the biggest edges, but to ensure he also gets the best number by reading the market correctly. Waz was a regular contributor for the EOG Sports Hour on KLAV 1230AM, expressing his thoughts and opinions across the wide sports betting landscape for years. He truly enjoys helping others learn the finer points of sports betting and looks forward to assisting other bettors at BettorIQ. Waz has a unique spin on betting and that shines through in much of his content and data that he provides. For example, he has attributed a lot of his success in college hoops to the individual home court advantages he assigns each team along with his personal coaching ratings (both available to customers with a full season college basketball subscription). Waz prefers handicapping the smaller conferences in college basketball and college football. There are bigger informational and analytical edges in small conferences because they don’t get the same coverage as the big boys. Waz personally developed all of the handicapping tools available at BettorIQ after utilizing them himself for years. The Injury Matrix provides a way to stay on top of not only a team’s current injury situation, but the overall impact of injuries over the entire season. The Schedule Analyzer uses historical data to quantify the impact of every scheduling situation utilizing rest, miles traveled and team depth. The Line Move Report tracks detailed line movement for every team over the course of the season. The Cover Margin Report is a way to uncover overvalued and undervalued teams before the market does. These tools are a big component to Waz’s sports betting success. Every serious sports bettor should have these them at their disposal. Waz is looking to build a long-term partnership with bettors who put winning above all else. He also wants his partners to see things through his own eyes by providing insights and analysis that you can’t find anywhere else.

Eddie Walls

Dedicated and driven handicapper who spends 200+ hours every preseason and puts in 40+ hour work week on college football alone to uncover winners. College football has been my life for the better part of the last decade. I am truly dedicated to numbers and don't believe there is anyone working harder to beat the linesmakers. I bet at all three stages of the betting cycle and will try to educate bettors on how to win long-term while providing them with profitable picks. You'll never receive any pick from me that I didn't personally invest heavily in. I am knowledgeable on all 10 college football conferences and enjoy discussing and researching teams and players on a daily basis. I will provide quality content but also would love to answer any questions anyone has regarding any conference, team, coach, players and the games themselves.
