In 2009, Walt Jones created Area 49 Sports, an analysis website used for sports entertainment. Initially, the idea began as a means to blog about the latest in the sports world (or whatever was bugging him at the time), while offering advice on fantasy picks and Vegas betting lines. In 2012, that idea was expanded upon thus birthing what is now the all-encompassing website for analysis and fan entertainment.
Mr. Jones, a graduate of St. Joseph’s University, obtained his Bachelors of Science in Finance. A natural at statistical analysis, he honed these skills while working at J.P. Morgan and T. Rowe Price as a Financial Analyst where he created several models and metrics used for decision making. He decided to use these skills towards something more fun and exciting, picking spreads and playing fantasy football.
Today, AREA 49 Sports is a place for the fans. Whether it’s picks against the spread, fantasy football tips, or sheer frustration with your team, AREA 49 has a place for you. Follow Walt J as he comes to you from his blog “Live From AREA 49″ with his rants on the world of sports from the fan perspective.
With AREA 49 Sports, the only way to finish is to FINISH FIRST.
