Tom Stryker’s achieved virtually everything in his storied career. After all, he’s the only handicapper to have ever won back-to-back NCAA Football titles at The Sports Monitor. And he’s also on an 11-year streak where he’s cashed his NFL Game of the Year! But perhaps Tom’s greatest accomplishment is that he built (with Tom Scott) the famous Buckeye Database. Indeed, no less than ESPN Magazine has called Tom the “keymaster for what may be the world’s most valuable sports handicapping database.”
Tom’s been involved with sports his entire life. He played baseball at Indiana, and entered the sports handicapping business in 1984, when he worked with Tom Scott’s Buckeye Sports. After 15 years, Tom broke away to form his own service in 1999. Tom’s success was instantaneous. He finished #1 in College Football in both 2000 and 2001 at The Sports Monitor, as he hit 68.3 and 61.5 percent those two seasons. Then, in 2003, Tom was once again dialed in on the College gridiron, as Tom’s TOP College play posted an incredible 11-3 ATS record for 79 percent. That’s not the best part. Tom’s “play on” side in those 11 victories outscored its opponent 531-162! That’s an average whipping of 48.3 to 14.7! Beyond College Football, Tom recorded an array of Top 12 finishes including: 28-12 for 70.0 percent in the 2000 NBA Playoffs (#2), 4-0 for 100 percent in the 2001 NFL Playoffs (#1), 23-12 for 65.7 percent in the 2002 NBA Playoffs (#5), 52-36 for 59.1 percent in the 2001-02 College Basketball season (#2), 8-3 for 72.7 percent in the 2002 College Bowl Season (#3), 5-1 for 83.3 percent in the 2004 NFL Playoffs (#3) and 40-31 with a 6.64 percent return on risk and a net profit of $3,976 in the 2003 MLB season!
Those early years cemented Tom as one of the most talented handicappers in the world. And the winning has never stopped. Let’s check out what Tom has done lately. On December 15, 2019, Tom cashed his 7* NFL Game of the Year when New England (-10) blasted Cincinnati 34-13. That blowout victory was Tom’s 11th consecutive NFL Game of the Year payday. It should be noted that those 11 wins came by an average of 23.2 points per game! In 2018, in the First and Second rounds of the NCAA Tournament, Tom posted a golden 12-0, 100% ATS record for +34.0 stars. Big Dance bettors made a small fortune in that blistering four-day run. For example, customers who invested $100 per star pocketed a cool, crisp $3,400! Also in 2018, Stryker enjoyed a stunning gridiron run that raised plenty of eyebrows. From September 22 through December 17, Tom assembled a jaw-dropping 62-28-5, 68.9% ATS record for +54.1 net stars. This spectacular football run stands as one of Stryker’s best ever! And three years ago, Tom found plenty of Best Bet success on the football field. From October 28th, 2017 to January 1st, 2018, Stryker compiled a lucrative 49-25-2, 66.2 ATS record for +78.7 stars. On Best Bets rated 4*(and higher) in that run, Tom posted a reliable 15-5-1, 70% ATS mark! With 36 years of hard-earned experience, and an unmatched work ethic, there’s no doubt Tom’s success will continue.
Tom’s plays are rated as high as 7*, but most fall into the 1* to 5* range. Tom considers any selection rated 3* and higher to be very strong plays. It is imperative that clients play Tom’s selections as they are rated. For example, if you were playing $100 per star, you would invest $300 on a 3* release, $500 on a 5* release and $700 on a 7* release.
