WASHINGTON – Sports Illustrated (SI) has partnered with SharpRank to have the independent ranking company provide its collected data on top sports gamblers and their rankings to help SI with its sports betting content.
Sports Illustrated will use this information and gain access to the top sports bettors in the market through this partnership. These sports bettors can be helpful in providing readers with betting tips, picks, and wager advice as well as overall strategies.
SharpRank and Sports Illustrated are looking to take the USA online gambling market by storm.
Sports Illustrated Meets SharpRank
SharpRank has been providing its rating agency and performance rating platform on sports betting experts for years now by using algorithms and prognosticators to rank and rate the top sports bettors in the country.
This comprehensive look at betting gamblers based on their wins and losses as well as winning streaks is what attracted Sports Illustrated into working with them.
“We have built an all-star team here, with a talented roster for traditional sports and sports betting-related coverage,” said Bill Enright, Managing Editor, SI Betting and Fantasy. The partnership with SharpRank reiterates Sports Illustrated’s belief in accountability for the industry’s path forward and its positive rippling effects on the market as a whole.”
Sports Illustrated will use this data to supply content for sports betting fans as the higher-ranked gamblers will be giving some stellar tips through Sports Illustrated platforms.
This is the first sports media company to embrace a feature like this, but then again, SI has its own sportsbook, SI Sportsbook, which may benefit from this deal in the near future as well.
“Every industry has a SharpRank equivalent. There is not a single industry that operates without a level of independent oversight – it’s necessary,” said Chris Adams, SharpRank Founder and CEO. “We serve as that third party market validation in the sports betting world to both the general public looking for credible sources of information and the expert (“Sharp”) to signal to the market they are just that.”
Sports Illustrated continues to innovate into sports media and this partnership alongside its launching of the SI Sportsbook further shows how sports betting has influenced the company’s path into the future of sports.
Sports Illustrated and Sports Betting
Sports Illustrated launched its sportsbook in Colorado earlier in the year and is planning to expand into other states. The company has fully embraced the wagering on sporting events industry.
SI has also begun working to launch sports betting content like betting widgets, free2play games, and educational betting tools across its many platforms.
Fans of Sports Illustrated can expect content like this to continue to expand with more sports gaming integration to come. The future of sports betting with Sports Illustrated is a bright one.
