Galin specializes in the NBA and NFL. In 2017-18, he went 27-19 (59 percent) on NFL picks. Galin started in the industry covering DFS for a number of outlets, including Rotoworld, DailyRoto, and numberFire. From the beginning, he realized one must first predict the outcome of the game before determining how success trickles down to individual players, so he spent more time studying team outcomes than projecting individual players. When it comes to predictions, Galin trusts numbers above all else. Having graduated from the University of Florida with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Physics, Galin uses his strong analytical background every time he makes a pick.

Sat 12/8

A very important matchup in the West features two teams that have surprised everyone with how well they've played to start off the season. Both teams are playing on a back-to-back and with that, the edge goes to the home team. Memphis is also deeper and their starters are usually not stretched as much as the Lakers' players, giving them a slight energy advantage on the second night of a back-to-back. I'm laying the small number.

Sat 12/8

The Celtics are rolling at the moment with four straight wins that include two quality wins over the Timberwolves and Pelicans. They're slowly grinding back to full health and Gordon Hayward is slowly getting up to speed and starting to look like 60% of the player he was pre-injury. The Bulls won't be able to score efficiently against Boston's great wing length. Lay the large number.
