Greetings everyone, figured I might as well introduce myself. I am at the moment an above-average square bettor. I like to think I have a pretty good statistical background (Master's in Resource Economics and I currently work as an economist). Pre-black friday I was a winning online poker player and I still enjoy live games but don't play nearly as often.

This past fall I went 43-38-4 in the NFL and 37-24-2 in CFB. Despite a good record I ran my bankroll down to 0 with poor management and recreational plays on parlays, futures, etc. I should know better than that and I am starting over with a new bankroll and working on staying disciplined with my bet sizing.

Hopefully I can add some value to this community.
