J.V. Miller is widely recognized as one of the world’s top sports handicappers. J.V. is featured regularly as a handicapping expert on television, radio, and in newspapers, newsletters and magazines. Miller's work has been recognized by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and others. J.V. finished first place in the Marina Bay Sands Millenium Million Dollar NFL Contest against over one thousand top sports handicappers. We were named by the DAILY SPREAD as "the best all-'round sports handicappers on the planet," and selected to the Las Vegas WALL OF FAME for our contributions to sports betting knowledge. Our book, How Professional Gamblers Beat the Pro Football Pointspread, is in paperback and the only book of its kind recommended to libraries as "core reading material" by Jack Short, past president, American Library Trustee Association. J.V. is a third-generation sports-handicapper. His father is legendary sports handicapper, author and trailblazer J.R. Miller. This website is the first of its kind in history, launched in 1997. .
