Extinct: Covers Scrubs its Expert Picks Section

We were among the first to report Monday that Covers.com expert picks section was about to go extinct like the dodo bird after nearly 25 years as our friends at WagerTalk disclosed that they had begun to poach a handful of Covers cappers, among them Ben Burns.  This was all with the former site's blessing as WagerTalk head Lawrence "The Prez" Prezman, a Canadian toy tycooon, confirmed the dissolution of the Covers.com expert picks service.


By Wednesday morning, the Ben Burns page had been scrubbed and replaced with Covers.com content writers.

There had been rumors widely circulating in recent days that the Halifax-based Covers had acquired popular one time watchdog and review site, Sports Book Review.  That has yet to be officially confirmed.

If true, Covers would have access to a massive database of players, a customized odds service and an active posting forum.  SportsBookReview also enjoys solid rankings on Google and some sweet SEO juice.

Gambling911.com will continue to monitor that situation for any further developments.
