Established in 1996, Right Angle Sports (RAS) has grown from a one-man operation into a globally recognized handicapping service, providing both free and paid picks publicly and achieving long-term success in college basketball, college football, and the NFL markets with a 56% win rate across over 5,000 releases.
Founder Edward started by posting college football write-ups on Internet chat rooms, attracting a dedicated following. He expanded his reach by sending out free pick emails, eventually building a mailing list and launching RAS as a full-fledged service. To attract new clients, the first month was often offered for free, with full-season subscriptions costing less than $100. Edward primarily focused on west coast schools and would often visit college hoops scrimmages and exhibitions in an effort to get info that the rest of the market didn't have.
In the mid-2000s, Mike-RAS joined the team, bringing his talent for sports betting analysis. Together, Edward and Mike expanded RAS's play volume and scope, covering conferences beyond the West Coast. By 2010, RAS dominated the college hoops totals market, causing sportsbooks to take notice.
Edward continued to grow the team, adding Michael Craig, Matt, Jeff, Travis and additional researchers.
Today, RAS has a core team of six originators, plus 10 other full-time and part-time employees. As betting markets have evolved and become more challenging, RAS has adapted, maintaining its historic win rates and achieving its best performance in recent years.
