About Fargo

Age: 43

Years in handicapping: 18 Years

Achievements in handicapping: Consistent winning is the name of the game and that is what Matt provides. He has become one of the most recognized and respected handicappers around and that is by no accident. His top notch analysis backs up every play so he doesn't just give you winners, he tells you exactly why.  

Biggest win of the year: While it may be easy to pinpoint a certain “Big Unit Win” I consider every win to be big. There are games that cover by 40 points and others that cover by a half-point and they both really mean the same thing. Similar to golf, a birdie is a birdie no matter how you got there.

Biggest loss of the year: This goes along the same lines as the ‘Biggest win’ as every loss can be considered big. Sometimes losses are due to bad reads, bad luck or a combination of the two. While each win makes you look better, each loss makes you stronger because you learn from your mistakes. I learn more and more everyday and will do so ongoing.

Why you like Covers Experts: Covers Experts is a great place to be at not only because of the top notch talent there, but because of the drive for success. The dedication that the customer service team brings to the table is indescribable as they not only keep the customer number one, but are always there to fix any problems that may occur on my end or to answer any questions with immediate feedback.

Systems used for handicapping a game: Every day, I continue to learn and grow as a handicapper. While specific systems are not used on a daily basis, I am considered a situational handicapper above anything else. Analyzing each and every game on a daily basis, no matter big or small the card, is essential to be able to pull out the best situational plays. Statistical data is always important as well, even more so in college sports.

Rating Scale

Play Rating will be displayed in each title and range anywhere from 5* to 10* for Premium Plays and 1* for Free Plays.

Enforcer – this is the Signature Play for Matt and is usually backed with a 10* Rating unless otherwise noted.

Supreme Annihilator – this is typically a favorite or a pickem that Matt feels has the opportunity to destroy the line.

Ultimate Underdog – this is an underdog that is being faded for the wrong reasons and usually has a chance to win a game outright.

Star Attraction – this is a game that can be seen on national television providing great watch and win opportunities.

Total Dominator – while rare, these are the best over/under releases and occur more in football and baseball than any other sports.

Favorite stats/pages on Covers: The best resource at Covers is the matchup analysis that gives head to head stats in all different scenarios. The best feature is keeping an archive of all of the prior games for every team going back many years and we can capture a lot of good situational history, not only for specific teams but also league wide and for all sports. Past information can be just as important as present information.

Team you avoid when wagering: It is impossible to avoid any team in any sport because often more times than not, these 'ugly' teams can present the most value. Lines get adjusted and we tend to see more value with these teams because others consider them unbettable. Not Fargo.  

Sports, conferences and divisions he excels at handicapping: Every sport is looked at with the obvious NFL, NBA, NCAA-F, NCAA-B and NHL. Matt also goes after the CFL, WNBA, MMA and provides free tips every week from the PGA Tour.

Quote: "This is not an easy business and anyone that tells you different clearly does not put in the time or hard work that I do. In order to be successful, it takes patience, dedication and an overall willingness to be the best. We all go through good and bad runs but it is consistency that counts when it comes to handicapping."
