In addition to being on the faculty at SportsDataUniversity.com, Marc writes a weekly NFL column for the USA TODAY Sports Weekly, and has authored hundreds of articles on the art and science of sports handicapping. He publishes the PLAYBOOK Football Preview Guide magazine and the weekly PLAYBOOK newsletter during the football and basketball seasons. In his over 40 years as a professional sports handicapper Marc has won over 500 documented Top 10 handicapping achievement awards, more than anyone in the nation. He hosts the Marc Lawrence Against The Spread podcast. Marc won the 2005 STARDUST INVITATIONAL Football Contest and is a two-time WISE GUYS CONTEST champion. Thanks to his powerful sports database, Marc's technical approach to sports handicapping strongly adheres to the theory of 'cause and effect' that the farther back you can look the farther forward you can see. Applying these findings to statistical and fundamental matchups makes for a solid handicap, and by applying 'value' to the handicap we learn become winners. And winning, in the long run, is what handicapping all about.
