    Hey RotoGrinders family,

    With the launch of the SharpSide sports betting app, we want to hear from you. Similar to how writers can contribute to RotoGrinders through its blogging program, the SharpSide sports betting app allows users to contribute to the community by making picks and giving advice for a wide variety of sports and bet types.

    The SharpSide sports betting app is available for both iOS and Android users, so be sure to download it via the App Store or get it on Google Play.

    Picks are made simply by swiping right or left on a specific bet, and advice blurbs can be shared so you can tell other community members why you’re picking a side and what makes it a good bet. Each advice blurb is limited to 2,000 characters, so the goal is to provide as much insight as possible in a format that is quick and easy to consume.

    To kick off this program, we’ve partnered with FanDuel to offer $500 in credit to the best advice writers and best sports bettor each month. If you would like to participate, we ask that you please contact Donnie Peters at with your RotoGrinders username so we can track the advice and picks made. Only users who notify Donnie of their participation and provide their username will be eligible.

    For the month of November (final day November 30), we are giving awards for the following:

    Best NFL Advice Writer ($50)
    Best NFL Advice Writer Runner-Up ($25)

    Best NBA Advice Writer ($50)
    Best NBA Advice Writer Runner-Up ($25)

    Best NCAAF Advice Writer ($50)
    Best NCAAF Advice Writer Runner-Up ($25)

    Best NHL Advice Writer ($50)
    Best NHL Advice Writer Runner-Up ($25)

    Best NCAAB Advice Writer ($50)
    Best NCAAB Advice Writer Runner-Up ($25)

    Best NFL Sports Bettor ($25)

    Best NBA Sports Bettor ($25)

    Best NCAAF Sports Bettor ($25)

    Best NHL Sports Bettor ($25)

    Best NCAAB Sports Bettor ($25)

    Advice winners will be determined based on the quality, quantity, and the accuracy of the advice given. Sports betting winners will be determined based on units won within the SharpSide sports betting app.

    Please note that we will have moderators overseeing the content, so please be sensitive to the language you use in advice blurbs. We also ask that you do not include any external links and that all blurbs be of original content. Blurbs are subject to be removed if we deem them inappropriate or in violation of any of these rules.

    We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

    Nice! Will there still be contests in addition to the writing awards?

    At this time, this awards program is in addition to the contests SharpSide is running.

    So when are these prizes announced?

    Maybe I missed the threads and/or twitter announcements, but who were the winners for the special Thanksgiving Day/weekend SharpSide contests? In addition to the November ones mentioned in this thread. And any of the other recent SharpSide contests for that matter, like in the past month or so, I forget to be quite honest.

    Really wish there was a way for us to track our status on the app/online without having to resort to waiting for an announcement to be made, which is sometimes delayed by days or even weeks.

    Part of the thrill of DFS, sportsbetting is being able to track it in real-time and the instant gratification, but maybe that’s just my two cents.
