Phillip works as an actuary in Risk Analytics. This means he specialize in monitoring worst case scenarios of probabilistic outcomes. This has been Phillips first experience in sports betting and his main goal is to improve each year. He would not trade this experience for anything in the world. Long term he hopes to dig deeper into sophisticated modeling and prediction methods for the NFL. This should both help him understand the game better and better accurately predict where the edges are.
To build on coding skills applicable to my Actuarial role he decided to scrape websites for data and build some simple models. This work ended up coming in handy as it would be what impressed the Action team when he applied. Now, Phillip builds on that each week to provide the most accurate advice he can. This year he got the chance to start writing a SNF article with a same game parlay bet. This allowed him to combine his risk analytics background with his interest in football.
Major: Actuarial Science and Applied Mathematics
Phillip has studied statistics deeply and as an actuary work to read and and understand data. This has helped him project the outcome of the game by taking the data and making an accurate projection of how the game will unfold.
