James Manos is a lifelong athlete and sports enthusiast. Despite receiving degrees in microbiology and genetics, he decided not to pursue these careers and instead devoted himself to his passion for becoming a professional handicapper. This passion, and his wagering success on a personal level, prompted him to leave the beautiful beaches of Hawaii and relocate to the Lake Tahoe area of northern Nevada for the purpose of becoming "part of the action."
Mr. Manos has been wagering on the professional level since 1998. James has definite opinions regarding betting philosophies, wagering styles, handicapping techniques, and money management, all of which are incorporated into his unique handicapping style. James loves all sports but chooses to focus his talents on major league baseball, college basketball, the NBA and his two favorites -- college football and the NFL.
In his first year as a monitored football service, James collected several top-10 finishes according to Sports Monitor, including No. 5 for the college bowls (83.3% winners), No. 2 for combined Totals plays (26-10, 72.2% winners), and No. 9 in combined NFL and college net wins. This success in football can be directly attributed to his creation of team and game-specific offensive efficiency ratings (which gives teams odds to score per possession).
If you are interested in honest, informative and affordable handicapping at a higher level, then James Manos is the handicapper for you.
