After months on end of zero sports, we’re suddenly being waterboarded with them.
We’ve been stuck inside for months with nothing to do other than learn new skills, hobbies – but who the heck wants to do that? Pinterest mom’s that’s who. Not sports fans. Anyhow, we’ve been stuck inside with nothing to do and no sports. But know we’ve basically got a feeding tube shoved down our throats and they’re pouring in NBA playoffs, NHL Playoffs, MLB, and NFL fantasy preparation. Plus, College Football is just around the bend as well. At least for the SEC, BIG 12, and ACC.

So, how are we supposed to keep track of everything? Every other year, we’ve had all of this data spread out over the different league’s seasons for 12 months. In 2020, it’s all coming in a mass influx right now.
Mobile Apps with filters and email updates and direct to phone updates is the only way to effectively manage all of this information.
With this in mind, let’s go over a few mobile apps that are indispensable for sports fans.
CBS Sports & ESPN
It may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t have these basic main-stream media sports apps on their phones and tablets. They allow you to get up to the moment game results, scores and big plays, expert analysis, and breaking news.
Bovada & Bookmaker
Winning at sports betting is a lot easier with a good mobile app. Bookmaker is known as one of the lines setters for the rest of the online sportsbooks. When Bookmaker’s lines come out, the rest of the world follows. Bovada is known for having the most prop betting options for Americans. On top of this, they are one of the few books that doesn’t follow Bookmaker. They often have softer lines than some of the other books and are a ‘public, average-joe-friendly betting outlet. With that said, this is the place I like to take action on underdogs. The public pounds the OVER here and pounds the favorites creating hefty returns on barking dogs.
Bovada is also worthwhile for fantasy professionals. A connection that many fantasy players never make is the Vegas player prop and team prop lines. Conversely, betters know this trick well and use betting data to help them make their DFS picks.

Sure, you could just go to Bookmaker, 5Dimes, Pinnacle, or Bovada’s websites to place your bets, but the mobile apps are necessary for making sure you get your bets in quickly. If you are out on the road, you can’t afford to wait to get home to place a bet when the lines move or is about to move. You have to pounce and get you to play locked in while you still have the advantage. It’s literally the difference between winning and losing.
DraftKings & Fan Duel
Having one of these apps on your mobile device is necessary for sports fans. Similar to how ESPN, CBS, or Yahoo sports give you up-to-date information, fantasy app do the same but add the element of fantasy points and stats, stats, stats.
So, whether your goal is to earn money with DFS and sports betting, or just be the wisest guy or gal at your favorite sports bar, a top-tier fantasy app needs to be at your fingertips.
If you have at least one of each of these types of apps at your beck and call – an all-around sports media app, a betting app, and a fantasy app, you’ll have a well-rounded data stream coming your way without having to stay glued to the TV or websites. Especially, right now, when we have all major sports essentially running at the same time, being able to skim multiple headlines is paramount to any sports fan. It’s doesn’t matter if you are a casual fantasy player or bettor, or if you are a pro sports investor, these are a few of the tools you need for success.
