Sharp, a sports media and betting tracking platform, announced this week that its sports betting app will be available in the App and Google Play stores. The app offers a one-stop shop for multimedia material, tools, and solutions created exclusively to educate and empower sports bettors.
Sharp is the result of the merger of two industry behemoths: Win Daily and DFS Army. The app combines Win Daily’s media content and DFS Army’s development of proprietary technology to provide a sports betting educational experience, with a combined experience of more than 10 years in understanding the requirements, wants, and pain points of sports bettors.
The Sharp Academy, a multimedia masterclass that will teach all skill levels different areas of sports betting, is the app’s main feature. It will provide daily material (podcasts, live streams, and articles) led by sports betting specialist John Alessia that will provide tips, guidance, and tactics targeted at breaking down sports betting to its fundamental aspects. Sharp Academy will be available for free for the first 1,000 people who download the Sharp app.
Kevin Epstein, co-founder and CEO, said: “Even as sports betting explodes across America, there is a significant segment of the market that is still sitting on the side-lines because they aren’t educated on how to bet, what to look for or what success over time looks like.
“Apps leveraging innovative technology focused on user education and self-management are already second nature to consumers looking to strengthen their personal financials or health and fitness regimen – sports betting should be no different. With Sharp, we’ve created the ultimate platform of tools and content that we wish we had when we started sports betting.”
Alessia, Epstein, and Jason Mezrahi, all sports betting experts and corporate executives, will create content for the app. At a later date, more well-known sports betting experts who have been hired to develop content for the platform will be released.
Decades of expertise
Mezrahi, co-founder and COO of Sharp added: “In bringing together Win Daily and DFS Army, we bring decades of expertise that fuses the best sports betting content and experts with world-class proprietary technology that will continue to evolve and innovate as the industry grows and expands,” said Mezrahi, co-founder and COO of Sharp.
“Users can expect rich daily content across the spectrum of sports and intuitive tools to help provide historical perspective on personal bets and real-time statistics to help make the best decisions for the bettor. There has been a dearth of sports betting educational products in the market and we’re excited for users to begin seeking value from the Sharp platform.”
