Dan Gordon is widely regarded as one of the three best handicappers in the sports world and has a winning record as a professional sports bettor for over two decades. His sports betting columns have appeared in the New York Daily News, San Francisco Examiner, Boston Herald, Log Angeles Herald Examiner, College and Pro Football Weekly and other newspapers and magazines and he served as handicapping consultant to Pete Axthelm of NBC, ESPN and Inside Sports Magazine for seven years. His latest book Beat the Sports Books - An insider's guide to betting the NFL is a seminal work in football betting.
Betting the NFL effectively requires a great deal of data and effort. Dan Gordon's NFL Handicapping Companion (DG-NFL) is designed to greatly ease the process of collecting, maintaining and manipulating data and applying the many necessary calculations. The ability to experiment with changes to the calculations and assumptions is also provided with instant recalculation of the tables for the entire season.
