Summary

Avery manages the small but mighty tennis vertical at Action. He contributes to Action's growing soccer coverage and UFC projections. Avery helps with The Action Network's PRO content as well as on the editing team and with general news.

Experience

Avery began his journalism career by contributing at SB Nation's Inside NU, a Northwestern sports website, as well as WildcatReport, a Rivals Northwestern sports blog. He went on to become the managing editor at Inside NU before amassing experience in the financial services industry. Avery joined Action in the fall of 2021 in spite of the fact that he is from Chicago and isn't a Bears fan, which was troubling to leadership at Action.

Education

Avery currently attends Northwestern University where he is attaining a Journalism degree and didn't plan his schedule well so he has too many minors.

Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Undoubtedly my favorite bet that I have ever hit is Tiger Woods to win the Masters in 2019. Prior to that tournament, I had bet on Tiger to win every single major he played in since my sophomore year of high school. I think I broke even after he won the Masters.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
Very recently I had Carlos Alcaraz to win the second set against Hugo Gaston on the ATP Tour. Alcaraz was up 5-0 in the set before losing it 7-5. Pain.
