What's up Scores and Stats readers! I'm Ryan Knuppel but better known online as "Knup." I'm in my upper 30's and living in sunny Orlando, Florida with my wife and three kids! My background is in computers, as I have a college degree for computer science. But my passion is for SPORTS!
I played four years of college basketball which gave me a true understanding of how athletes think and operate. During that time, I got to play with and against THE Michael Jordan on several occasions. Talk about "once in a lifetime." My favorite sports to follow (in order) are basketball, football and baseball. But oddly enough, my only true devotion to a team is the St. Louis Cardinals. In basketball and football -- I always cheer for whoever I invested in that night.
Picking winners and playing daily fantasy sports has become a true passion of mine. Over the years, I've had some pretty cool experiences thanks to my skills in these areas. In 2011, I won the Buffalo Wild Wings National Pick'em contest giving me the chance to play "Flag Football" with Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders at the Rose Bowl Stadium in California. In 2015, I won a seat to the FanDuel NBA Championships at the Playboy Mansion to compete for big daily fantasy basketball prizes. All in all -- let's just say that sports have been very good to me over the years!
Now, I have become a true student of "investing" in sports. I have spent over a decade studying line moves, trends, stats and teams to become a true expert in both sports betting and daily fantasy sports. It's been a pleasure to write for ScoresAndStats.com and you can contact me or follow my other online projects at RyanKnuppel.com! Good luck and enjoy my writing!
