A 2009 graduate of the Ohio State University, Corey transformed his lifelong love for College Football, the NFL, and College Basketball into a passion for Handicapping as an undergrad, and that passion has only grown. A proponent of Power Ratings, Statistical Application, and Market Analysis; he primarily employs a numbers-based approach to handicapping, but still relies heavily upon the knowledge acquired from countless hours invested – with eyes fanatically glued to the TV Screen. Just starting out as a writer, Corey’s newly found fervor is sharing his passion with the Handicapping community and hopefully adding some enjoyment to the games we love, for all those who too like the make things a little more “interesting.”
