Brian Edwards - About Me

Brian Edwards covers football, basketball and the UFC with a special emphasis on SEC football and SEC hoops. He has handicapped for VI since 2002.

Brian is a 1998 graduate of the University of Florida. After working as a sports writer in the Atlanta area for nearly two years, Edwards joined Vegas Insider in March of 2000.

Brian is a regular guest on radio shows all across the country. During football season, he is a weekly guest on the Chris Vernon Show in Memphis and occasionally jumps on with the A to Z Sports gang in Nashville. Brian appears on Sharp & Benning in the Morning on 1620 The Zone in Omaha and the Out of Bounds Show with Qualk & Kelly on 105.5 The Roar in Clemson every Thursday of the year. He's also on with Wess Moore on Fox Sports Arkansas every Friday year-round. B.E. has also made appearances on Chad Millman's podcast on ESPN.com, SportsTalk with Bo Mattingly in Arkansas, Mad Dog Radio, The Paul Finebaum Show, ESPN Nashville and ESPN 1100 in Las Vegas.

Brian has had by-lines in ESPN the Magazine. In 2011, he correctly predicted the season win totals for four of five SEC teams the publication featured in its preseason Top 25. His articles have also been seen in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, GamecockCentral.com and The Linemakers. His Saturday college football picks in the Review-Journal in 2012 cashed at an incredible 48-18-1 clip (73%).

On Dec. 26 of 2009, Brian beat every member of the national media to the news of Urban Meyer's resignation as the head football coach at the University of Florida. Of course, Meyer changed his mind the next day, but VI was the website that provided that stunning news first. Also, Brian alerted bettors to the pending suspensions of 20 FSU football players prior to the Music City Bowl in '07, suggesting that gamblers immediately play Kentucky -1 because the line was going to be heavily adjusted. As it turned out, Brian advised VI readers to then come back with FSU +9 (the adjusted number) so when the 'Cats won by seven, the perfect 'middle' gave gamblers multiple winners.

Brian hosted VI's radio show, The Power Hours, on Thursday nights from 2005-2012.

Brian is a life-long fan of the Florida Gators, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Falcons.

Brian is also a big fan of Steve Spurrier, Charles Barkley, the Van Gundys, Bill Raftery, Jon Gruden and Matt Brown. On the flip side, Brian is not a fan of Roger Clemens, Alex Rodriguez, Kobe Bryant, Mark May, Chris Webber and Craig James.
