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.

Jon Reid.jpg
Hammer Creator

Jon has been a sports fan his entire life, taking after his late grandfather who was a big Chicago Cubs and Toronto Maple Leafs fan (yes, it was painful prior to 2016!). Having played tennis from a young age, starting with summer tennis camps and then playing at the local club and for his high school team, he's always had an interest in the sport. His passion found another gear after attending the College of Sports Media and working in sports radio in Toronto. Learning to move from a prediction-based approach to probability evaluation led to some very successful seasons betting on the sport. Join him on a fun ride full of variance in a sport that is played for 11 months of the year!
