I go by Steven Golden. I am a professional sports handicapper/bettor and proudly representing Reno, Nevada. Many people ask how I got into this as a career. It started with fantasy sports and split stats. I would use the split stats function to decide which pitchers to start/stream and which hitters to start that day based off the stats. This greatly improved my skills at identifying edges. Over the years I would wager here and there until I got into college and got serious about. I would post my picks for free on sports betting forums where I eventually grew a following that had eyes on my posts on a daily basis. My goal there was to separate myself as a trusted handicapper that is legitimate in a world of frauds in the sports betting industry. I took a "good guy" presence and made it into a reliable and honest business doing what I love. Eventually this became a full on career and living for me as I moved to Twitter where you can find me @GBSportsPicks. Growing up all I heard was scammy salesmen on the radio guaranteeing picks and promising winners while suggesting they had "secret inside info" on the game. This is not what gains trust or educates bettors well. This is pure sales talk. I have built a reputation of transparent and honest picks while being a trusted voice for the betting community. Writing runs in my family and is my favorite way to spread my knowledge and expertise to the betting world. I hope to be someone all readers can learn from on a consistent basis, while entertaining those readers with mind blowing and informative articles. The Golden Boy has your back.
