Sean Higgs's PhotoSean Higgs

Sean Higgs has been crushing ‘The Man’ since the early ’90s. If you are trying to beat the sportsbooks with stats, trends, and angles you are not going to have a lot of success if you do not know how to apply them. That is Sean’s specialty. If you follow Sean’s advice by playing his selections you are going to find yourself making a decent second income from gambling.
He doesn’t place bets just because a game is on TV or involves high profile teams. He shoots for value. If you are working full-time, have a family, or have other interests then you can’t possibly put in the time required to win at sports betting .
Year in, and Year out, ‘Mr. Money’ grinds out a profit. Higgs isn’t in this for the thrill of some big wins, Sean wins consistently throughout the year.
Dennis Macklin

Moving to Las Vegas in 1991, Dennis became a true Vegas “insider” working behind the scenes for several major services before going on his own in 2002. Macklin has numerous radio and television credits on his resume, including a regular 20-minute football segment “Beat the Spread”, on the One on One radio network. In addition, he was a weekly panelist on USA Networks “Sports Desk” in 2001 and 2002. Monitored by several top monitors since 2003, Macklin has firmly established himself as one of the sports information industry’s top experts.

In virtually no time at all, DMack, as Dennis is known, had accumulated over 50 Top-10 finishes including several No.1’s at several documented monitors.

Dennis finished second in the NBA and seventh in college hoops in 2004 to become the No. 1 combined basketball handicapper. He also won the 2005 NHL crown outright and owns three handicapping titles.

Dennis decided he wanted to continue to grow and learn more about the sports wagering business and worked with Phil Steele in Cleveland and also spend several years in Costa Rica doing contract writing and advertising for a marketing concern.

DMack has rededicated himself to handicapping and is starting to become serious about poker. Macklin was a participant in the 2006 World Series of Handicapping winning two of the seventeen legs and in 2007 cashed (Top-20) in the most prestigious NFL handicapping contest on the planet, The Hilton Super Book Contest. DMack finished fourth in the NFL at 80-56 and + 18.40 units and looking for more this season. In an industry that offers no guarantees, of one thing you can be certain, nobody works harder or is better prepared to get YOU the money. The Mack Attack has your back and the best is yet to come.
