Testimonials from Colleagues

Born and raised in Chicago, Allan had little option but to become an avid follower of the Bulls. After all, he grew up at the time that Michael Jordan was redefining the game and Allan has stayed true to the Bulls through all of the following ups and downs.

You’ll often find Allan screaming at his television whenever the Bulls play, although he’ll also support other teams in the Windy City. So if you ever need someone to explain exactly how the Bears need to fix their defensive line, Allan’s the guy to ask.

Allan is a true armchair spectator of sport. Too short for basketball, too weedy for football, he instead devotes his time to understanding the mechanics of what makes a sporting team truly great.

This means spending hours unravelling the techniques of legendary head coaches like Mike Ditka, and Allan was quick to set up his own blog that exclusively covered the goings-on in Chicago sports.

Thankfully, Allan’s work picked up plenty of fans and we had little option but to recruit him to our team. This is because we needed someone who knew sport inside out and could communicate his knowledge in a way that anyone can understand.

As a resident of Chicago, Allan was well-placed to experience the arrival of legal sports betting in Illinois. This has meant that Allan has been able to use his expertise to figure out exactly which sportsbooks are serving up the best spread for pretty much any NBA game, and he’ll be on hand to guide you to the best bets for all US sports.

We enjoyed Allan’s enthusiasm for sports betting so much that we simply had to unleash him on our sportsbook reviews. This is where you’ll get to see Allan ranking and rating each online sportsbook according to their merits or lack of.

Allan’s not the kind of guy to mince his words when things don’t go according to plan. We’ve seen him destroy a couple of sportsbooks who happened to put on promos that were less than spectacular. But he’s also more than happy to praise a sportsbook who’ll give him superior odds for his beloved Bulls.

This is because Allan knows that while he might not be able to influence what happens on the basketball court, he can at least take some control over the kinds of sports bets that he puts down.

As such, Allan is on an endless quest to find the best online sportsbook in the US. You should definitely check out his reviews where he’ll walk you through how each sportsbook works and tell you whether it lives up to his tough standards.

Just don’t forget to check out Allan’s picks for basketball. While he can be a touch biased towards the Bulls, he still has the experience required to help you get more out of your sports bets.

We asked

What is your favourite sport?
When it comes to playing, I'm all about basketball. But if I'm in the stands or on the couch, nothing gets my adrenaline pumping like a high-stakes baseball game.
Are you a dog or cat person?
Oh, I'm a dog guy through and through. Man's best friend, you know? Haven't had the chance to own one yet, but it's in the plans.
What is your favourite TV show?
I've got a soft spot for shows like Friday Night Lights and The Last Dance. I guess you could say sports themes run deep for me, even in my TV choices.
What is your ideal travel destination?
I've always dreamed of going to the Olympics, no matter the location. Sports history in the making, what could be better? But if it's just for relaxation, I'd pick a beach somewhere in Hawaii.
