Eli Hershkovich is a lead sports betting writer with both TheLines.com and Catena Media. He’s been gambling for over a decade. His goal is to provide you with data and market insight to help lead you to winning bets. Eli specializes in college basketball, NFL, MLB, and the sports gambling landscape but is most well-known for his futures bets on the hardwood. Last season, he cashed his 50-1 UConn ticket. However, he still hasn’t forgiven Virginia (and the refs) for ruining his 100-1 Texas Tech futures in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
