The ATN Scoop
Against The Number is a well established community of sports enthusiasts, professionals, handicappers, and sports writers, all sharing in the enjoyment and education provided by top quality sports information with the focus of finding an edge in a game or a sporting event. Against The Number was founded by renown handicapper and long time bookmaker, Chris Andrews in 2013. Mr. Andrews has since accepted the position of Sports Book Director at the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa in the Spring of 2016. The only unfortunate part of this exciting endeavor, was that Chris had to relinquish his ownership of Against The Number. In the transition, Chris wanted the next owner to share in his vision of this business. He wanted the company to continue to have respect for the customer, integrity in its operation, a commitment to customer service and an attention to detail. Mr. Andrews found all those qualities in The Specialty Sports Group.
As a sign of his full endorsement, Chris Andrews will continue to contribute with occasional podcasts, written content, and social media and wouldn’t be doing so if he didn’t have confidence that these are the right people to continue with the company he started and put his heart and soul into creating.
No different than before, Specialty Sports Group also offers sports services, content, and information by handicappers, expert in their field, for all sports; football, basketball, MMA, baseball, golf, horse racing, and hockey. The company name comes from our stern commitment to providing specialists in each field rather than a sweeping generalization. We feel that by narrowing one’s focus, it increases one’s expertise. We are not in the business of giving our customers a “Jack of All Trades” as we feel this dilutes commitment, knowledge, experience, and ultimately, results.
As Mr. Andrews puts it himself,
I am excited to see the new owners of Against The Number do great things and carry on with the company that I started. If any of you are ever in Las Vegas, please stop in the South Point sports book and say hello. I would love to meet each and every one of you personally. I would also like to personally thank you for your loyal membership as a customer of ATN or a consumer of our content. Sincerely, thank you all very much.
All good things must come to an end and my ownership of Against The Number is no exception. However, this is a happy ending. One I am sure will work out well for all of us. It is with great pride and confidence that I pass the torch on to the members of The Specialty Sports Group.
Thank you from all of us,
Against The Number — Specialty Sports Group.
