Mike Bobal has engaged in fantasy sports and betting for nearly two decades. He is in awe of how data
and analytics have evolved and progressed over that time, and has personally benefited from the edge that
quality, evidence-based content can provide to casual players and bettors. His goal is to help squares find
that edge, level the playing field with the sharps, and profit along the way.

He won 1 of 100 entries to the $5M 2016 FanDuel World Fantasy Football Championship, finishing top-
20. The winnings paid off his college debt. His dad, a Notre Dame fan, got to meet Joe Montana during the WFFC festivities.

Mike is a devoted husband and father, and enjoys thinking critically about DFS, best ball, season-long
fantasy, and betting.
