Kurt’s sportswriting adventures have branded him a foremost expert on football, soccer, basketball, hockey, prize-fighting, and dozens of other competitions around the world. His editorials, rankings, and news reports have appeared in MSN.com, Yardbarker, and Bleacher Report. A rich writing style and eye for historical and cultural angles have helped him create a truly unique voice in online handicapping.
A 38-year-old resident of SoCal, Kurt boasts a seemingly boundless knowledge of the sports universe that has manufactured winning prediction records in FIFA, March Madness, English Premier League matches, and the Olympic Games. On the gridiron, he posted a 61% success rate on ATS and point-total picks during the 2017-18 NFL and FBS seasons.
Kurt successfully touted Villanova to win the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship and also nailed four out of four moneyline, goal-total, and proposition bets in the World Cup final between France and Croatia. He also specializes in international baseball, predicting months in advance that an underdog Team USA would win its first World Baseball Classic in 2017.
Kurt claims to have never found a website more committed to in-depth predictions and entertaining coverage than Legit Gambling Sites. “Most handicapping pages post odds, a few thinly-explained picks, and a whole bunch of systems and math,” he explains. “LegitGamblingSites.com is a publication for the real fan who also likes to bet once in a while.”
He holds a special place in his heart for high school football, in which his blogging persona “The Gridiron Geek” has been compared to legendary sports humorists like Lewis Grizzard and Patrick McManus. His favorite casino game is baccarat, and he hopes someday to learn the “foolproof” system used by Evelyn Tremble in Casino Royale.
Kurt’s other interests include music, history, politics, and classic television. His cat, Patricia, is in charge of his apartment.
