Sports media and bet tracking platform Sharp has confirmed the official launch of its sports betting app in both the App and Google Play stores this week. The app provides an all-in-one platform experience of multimedia content, tools and solutions developed specifically to educate and empower sports bettors.
Sharp is the amalgamation of two industry giants, Win Daily and DFS Army. With more than 10 years’ experience combined, in understanding the needs, wants and pain points of sports bettors, the app unites Win Daily’s media content and DFS Army’s development of proprietary technology to create a sports betting educational experience.
The anchor feature of the app is the Sharp Academy, a multimedia masterclass that will teach all skill levels different aspects of sports betting. Led by sports betting expert John Alessia, it will produce daily content (podcasts, live streams and articles) providing tips, advice and strategies aimed at breaking down sports betting to its foundational elements. Sharp Academy will be free for the first 1,000 downloads of the Sharp app.
Co-founder and CEO Kevin Epstein commented: “Even as sports betting explodes across America, there is a significant segment of the market that is still sitting on the sidelines 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.”
Sports betting experts and company executives Alessia, Epstein and Jason Mezrahi will all produce content for the app. Additional noted sports betting experts contracted to create content for the platform will be announced at a later date.
“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.”
