Betfair’s written content is recommended 3 times. Professional golf bettor, Brady Kannon (ep 44) particularly recommends the golf content from Dave Tindall and Steven Rawlings.

Nat Silvers 538

Nate Silver’s 538 is recommended 4 times. I data a data and statical driven approach and is particularly strong for political betting.

Covers

The US sports betting content website is recommended 5 times, although 4 of those were by people who wrote for it.
