Once a promising young scholar and all around math whiz, the Doctor’s life changed forever when he was challenged by friends to come up with a statistical model to predict the outcome of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. His model was an overnight success, resulting in an NCAA pool victory and a sweet cash prize. They say money changes people - it makes them AWESOME. Since then, the Doctor has eschewed a life of honest work in favor of the fast paced world of designing algorithms to make sports picks with, at best, sporadic success. But he’s constantly tinkering and remains convinced that one day he’ll hit on the secret formula to predict games perfectly. Until then, he’ll be right here tossing out crazy picks and even crazier theories alongside his co-host the Dude on doctoranddude.com!
Many years ago, two young, bright eyed scholars met while expanding their minds with higher learning. One chose to follow science. The other decided to have another beer. Since making that fateful decision,the Dude has consumed many more beers and other beverages and watched lots of sports on tv, often while yelling to make his opinions known. He has learned that some teams will always suck and break your heart and he's learned that nothing is sweeter than watching that last leg of a parlay come in. He's fond of underdogs, big lines, teasers, and having action all across the board. His method of picking winners is inspired by careful observation, following hunches, and Lucky Ned's IncrediSystem. Now he gets to provide the counterpoint to the Doctor right here at doctoranddude.com!
