CFB/(W)NBA Handicapper

Douglas Farmer has covered Notre Dame football for various outlets since 2008, including for NBC since 2017. Gradually and naturally that job led him to spend more time focused on the national college football landscape than on the Irish. There is no better shorthand to discuss 130+ teams than gambling on them, which is why Douglas now spends as much time as he can discussing college football through a gambling lens.
