Author Motto: Gambling & Maths Mix Like Gin & Tonic

Hey everyone! I’m Matt from New Haven. I grew up as a big fan of two things: pizza and the Patriots. That’s how I became interested in sports betting and gambling. My buddies and I would always have a fantasy football league going, and we would meet up for slices before every Pats game we managed to get tickets to. We’d often place a friendly bet on the final score or how many yards Tom Brady would throw, which got me interested in the legality of gambling and sports betting in the US.

At UConn, I studied business and engineering. I wasn’t great at sports but became a big fan of the college team, the Huskies. I also developed my passion for sports writing, although I no longer introduce myself as a writer with “Matt’s the name, football’s the game”. I now have two young kids and hope to take them to their first Patriots game very soon.

What I Do on

Having been part of the team at for over two years now, and having followed sports my whole life, I can say I’m approaching expert status on the legality of DFS and sports betting in every state. While my heart still lies with football, I’ve learned a lot about casino games and slots in the past two years and am now a dab hand at blackjack. You’ll mostly find me writing about daily fantasy sports betting and big games, with the occasional instructional piece on state gambling laws or blackjack rules.
