Lummis Locks MMA (@LummisLocks)

Bio: Has been betting on MMA for about 2 years now. When he found out it was a thing to sell picks it inspired him to eventually start tracking via a 3rd party. He’s been on for almost 4 months now. Can’t say that he’s happy with where he’s at, but feels like he’s learned so much in the small amount of time since he started treating handicapping as more than a hobby. Is a student, so the surprising amount of free time comes in handy.

Oracle (@OracleMMAPicks)

Bio: A team of two passionate MMA fans that share picks after years of experience analyzing and betting on MMA professionally. After a while following the sport, they realized they were good at picking winners so they decided to commit full time and they haven’t looked back ever since. Over the years they developed their own method for breaking down fights with an emphasis on finding value. They generally tend to favor higher odds bets as betting huge favorites is a sucker’s game. Picking close fights is their specialty.
