About ASA

ASA, Inc.’s Lee Kostroski and Mike Merlet have a combined 50+ years in the handicapping profession, and are known for their “Big Game” prowess.

Active since:  1987

Location:  Madison, WI

The owners of American Sports Analysts (ASA), Lee Kostroski & Mike Merlet, have a combined 50+ years in the sports betting industry.  Both started with Doc’s Enterprises — Lee in the late 80’s and Mike in the early 90’s.  After learning the handicapping trade from one of the oldest firms in the business, they started ASA, Inc. in 1997 and have been going strong ever since.  They have especially been known throughout the industry for their success on BIG GAMES, and their Top Football plays have profited 17 of 25 seasons.  ASA is located in Madison, WI and a foundation of their handicapping prowess revolves around the heart of the country – especially the Big Ten.

ASA has appeared on numerous radio shows throughout the country as special expert football guests including Tampa, New Orleans, Madison, Milwaukee, Memphis, Las Vegas, and Denver just to name a few.  They were also featured on the ESPN website with gaming writer Chad Millman during the 2011 season.

ASA’s handicapping methods have evolved over the years, with hard work and research being the anchor of their success.  Rather than implementing one specific strategy as many handicappers do, they intertwine many different philosophies when it comes to making football, basketball, hockey, and baseball selections.  They utilize their massive database that goes back over 30 years, which gives them in-depth information on any situation you can think of when it comes to handicapping.  That’s not where they stop, however.  They also research stats and film each week to evaluate the upcoming match ups on the field along with speaking with their personal contacts throughout the country (especially in the Midwest).  On top of that, they analyze each point spread (and their movements), comparing them with their own power ratings to find an edge.  Lastly, their predictive analytics or math models forecast the outcomes of games based solely on numbers and statistics that aren’t swayed by the human element.  So, as you can see, just because a game may fall into a successful system or the scheduling looks good to go against or with a certain team, that doesn’t mean that ASA automatically uses it as a selection.  It must go through their in-depth process with all things considered before they give it the ASA stamp of approval.  Looking at games from all these angles gives ASA the best of all worlds when it comes to handicapping.  Their handicapping theories have proven successful over the years which has them as one of the more tenured experts in the industry.

Lee & Mike at ASA have stood the test of time in an industry that makes it very tough to do so.  Their 50+ years of experience will give you the winning edge you need.  Sports wagering is an investment and it’s time you invest in the known commodity of ASA!
