Brian Steinberg (Sherwood)

Brian graduated from the Journalism program at Ryerson University in 1983. Brian or Sherwood, as he's known in many sports forums online, has been betting on sports professionally for the past 24 years. His extensive knowledge and understanding of the betting markets have made him one of Canada's most successful and renowned handicappers. Brian's work in handicapping sports and playing winning poker has been published in numerous magazines and sites, including Randall the, Card Player Magazine, Casino Traveller and The Gambling Magazine to name a few.

Chris Farley

Chris is best-known for his unique takes in the sports betting world, mixing in psychology and situational advantages into his handicapping, along with traditional approaches. In a world that's overwhelmed and overly obsessed with mountains of data, Chris uses that data with efficiency while looking beyond the raw numbers. That's what's enabled him to be so successful on betting shows, in his career handicapping (57% over 2 years of NBA betting, 2021 Circa 5th place prize), and why he's garnered an audience on social media.

Remember, although many industry sharps will tell you there's one way to win, it's all still just theory. Data is built and based off historical data, which is never a seamless indicator of future results. Think beyond just data, incorporate all aspects of handicapping, including the human element of sports, and WIN! If you don't know how, we'll teach you!
