Course Description

Sports Betting Simplified - our brand new sports betting course - is designed for anyone interested in learning about the process of sports wagering, from the analysis phase to placing your first bets. This course features three different video series, each containing more than 20 minutes of video, to cover everything you need to make money on your wagers.

All of this adds up to over 2 hours of content!

In the second video lecture series, we discuss how to pick a team using our three-point analysis system.

In the third video lecture series, we discuss money management, advanced betting strategies, and the methods of taking your wagering to the next level.

Instructor Biography

Robert Watson, BS, MAT, Mathematics Teacher, Football Affecionado

The first time I ever played fantasy football, my quarterback was Warren Moon, and I was 9 years old. Since then, I've played in and won countless fantasy football leagues in a variety of different scoring systems.

In 2014, I won over $12,000 playing fantasy by placing 1st or 2nd in 40% of my leagues.

I paid for graduate school with NFL spread betting in 2009.

I have zero debt, and a $30,000 banked deposit at my sports book ready for my use.

Want to learn my secrets? My courses - Sports Betting Simplified and Fantasy Football - How to Play, and How to Win are live on Udemy!

My full-time job is as a high school math teacher, so I know how to teach and how to analyze the statistics. The NFL, spread betting and fantasy sports are my passion, and I can't wait to share it with you!
