On Wednesday of this week, I had the pleasure of announcing my new hockey and, occasionally NBA, writing job for Cappers Picks, a sports betting advice and news site. The site has a staff of writers dedicated to game previews, tips and picks for sportsbooks, advice, and online sportsbook reviews.
Being pretty knowledgeable on both hockey and sports betting, I was able to parlay my knowledge into a position with this site. My main focus is writing nightly NHL (and some NBA, college ball) previews, discussing trends among teams, statistical analysis, injuries, and anything else that could have an effect on how you as a gambler would bet on that game.
Along with that, I give my personal picks based on Vegas betting lines. Basically, I ask myself how I would bet a particular game and then put my pick and reasoning behind the pick into the written preview.
It’s a pretty big opportunity for me and one that I was able to get because of this blog. The editors saw my work and enjoyed it and hired me based on that. That being said, I love my site and the content I’ve been churning out over the past couple of months. That will definitely continue, although it may focus slightly less on hockey since I’ll be doing so much hockey writing for Cappers Picks.
I hope anyone who reads my stuff here will check out what I’ve got going on over at the other site. You can find all my work under the “NHL Free Picks” or “NBA Free Picks” sections. Whether you’re a gambler or not, I try to make the game previews interesting and informative for everyone.
I don’t say it enough but thanks to everyone who supports me and reads The 51 Yard Line. This site means the world to me and has led me to the next step in my writing career.
P.S. I promise there will be more NFL and NBA content. Check out the Cleveland Browns piece I put up this week!
