30 Day All-Access Pass + 7 Days Free: Save $159!

A 30-Day All-Access Pass is priced at $299, but for a limited time, we have discounted the price to $239, dropping the daily cost to $8.30 per day. We took our $9 Monday promotion, lowered the price, and allowed you to lock up that discount for 30 full days. 

Even better? For a limited time, we are adding SEVEN DAYS FREE ($99 value) to kick in once your 30 days expire! This brings your NEW daily cost to $6.45 per day! So, outside of the discount on the 30-Day All-Access, we are tossing in a FREE 7-Day All-Access, a $99 value, for a combined savings of $159! 

So, to recap, for the next 37 days, you will get all plays across all sports from your favorite WagerTalk handicapper played during your access, including 5% Best Bets, for around $6.45 per day. Act fast, as this special offer expires at midnight on Monday, April 15, 2024

Consultant Bio

Ralph was raised in the home of handicappers in Cleveland, Ohio. Starting in the industry as a key member of Phil Steele's early team, which expanded Northcoast Sports during the mid-90s. Ralph's personal following grew fast, allowing him to strike out on his own as the founder of California Sports. Over the next dozen years as General Manager of Phil Steele Publications and lead handicapper of Northcoast Sports, Ralph managed the creation of some of the most popular sports betting content ever, including Phil Steele's College Football Preview Magazine and Northcoast's Power Sweep Newsletter. Content displaying expertise so elite that Ralph was invited into college football's most exclusive club: Heisman Trophy Voter
Ralph Michaels has a math mind, steadily searching for a value in the numbers in addition to matchup edges, situational advantages, and hidden gems of information. Ralph finds more big bets in the college versions of football and basketball, but his handicapping approach also uncovers selective winners in the professional leagues. Small conferences are particularly profitable due to mispriced injuries and his profiling of exploitable coaching tendencies.
