Dan Halverson

An avid sports fan whose first word was "ball", Dan has spent his entire adult life learning the intricacies of sports betting markets. NFL, NBA, College Football, and the PGA Tour are preferred, but MLB, NHL, MLS, EPL, NCAAB, ATP, and yes, even the WNBA, have not been excluded. Value is value, and bettors bet. Dan believes a dollar won is better than a dollar earned, and he remembers his bad beats in greater detail than the birth of his two children. His only request upon joining the BetAmerica team was that his wife not be shown this bio.
