Wunderdog Sports Picks was selected out of 16.5 million home-based businesses for its financial performance over the last year.

Starting as “just a guy that was pretty good at picking NFL underdogs,” Geoff Kulesa, the Company’s founder, launched Wunderdog Sports Picks to cater to the estimated 100 million people that wager on sports each year. “I started picking games recreationally in college and over the next 10 years, built sophisticated (statistical) models for personal use,” said Kulesa. Wunderdog began modestly as a one-page website in 2001. Starting life on the internet as a site that made only NFL picks has expanded to cover all major sports and has been successful with its college football picks, college basketball picks as well as MLB picks.
Wunderdog reached its high-water mark in 2005 as the fastest-growing company in the sports handicapping industry. In 2007 the company reached the 100,000 subscriber mark and shows no signs if slowing down.
Wunderdog Sports has carved out a niche in the world of sports handicapping by finding value in betting underdogs and underrated teams while maintaining honesty and integrity as the cornerstones of his business. “It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the nation’s top performing home-based businesses. I started this business with a goal providing the best service in the industry and the great people that have joined the team since inception share this goal. This award validates our collective efforts. It’s a milestone on the way to achieving our goal of becoming the world’s largest provider of sports predictions.” said Kulesa. StartupNation is a leading online business advice website for entrepreneurs. SN awarded the 10 best companies in 10 different categories to compile the Home-Based 100.
