SERVICE BIO

Ross Benjamin has made his reputation in the sports handicapping industry by being one of the sharpest prognosticators over the last 15 years. In professional sports handicapper Ron Raymond’s 2008 published book “50 Greatest Sports Betting Secrets” he probably says it best. “One of the most underrated handicappers in our industry and probably one of the sharpest ones I know is Ross Benjamin.” 

One of Ross’ often used phrases when speaking publicly, “if you want to be a successful sports handicapper then start by thinking like a bookmaker”. Ross is 60 years old and has been directly involved in many capacities of the sports gaming industry for the last 31 years. However there is nothing he enjoys more than the challenge of picking winners in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, and NCAA Basketball.
