Sports Gambling Podcast Network (SGPN) has successfully seized the narrative as the top wagering authority on the United States Football League (USFL) with a major commitment of resources to the newly-minted pro football league, which launched its upcoming season last week with the 2022 draft.
SGPN produced a two-part, 10-hour, live USFL Draft Show and delivered interviews with five soon-to-be star players as the league’s eight teams began to stockpile talent. That in-depth coverage, unmatched by any other platform on the media landscape, generated over 10,000 views last week alone, demonstrating a level of consumer interest that SGPN is serving with its free podcasts and website postings and app (www.sportsgamblingpodcast.com).
NBC Sports’ prominent pro football news/information platform Pro Football Talk linked to Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s report in a post-Super Bowl offering and other mainstream outlets referenced ahead-of-the-curve SGPN content in late February.
Led by co-founders and Sports Gambling Podcast hosts Sean Green and Ryan Kramer, SGPN experts immersed themselves in the new spring football league’s resources and established relationships with league executives in January. The two-day live draft show followed and SGPN landed exclusive first interviews with USFL players Peyton Ramzy (WR, Tuskeegee University), Ben Holmes (QB, Tarleton State), Adewale Adeoye (DL, Utah State), Josh Taylor (OL Mississippi Valley State) and Michael Rodriguez (OL, Louisiana Tech). The SGPN USFL homepage is here.
“It’s pretty much indisputable that we’ve got a greater depth of knowledge on the USFL than any media platform out there and our competitors will never catch up,” stated Green, who assigned multiple contributors to the unprecedented initiative. “Our football guys are rabid, they know what our audiences want and we’re getting the answers on quarterback and skill position talent, coaching and what teams will be tops in the trenches so we can make winning, educated picks.”
Before the end of February, SGPN posted more than 20 separate podcasts and 15-plus articles laying out the top talent competing for jobs in the league. SGPN experts produced detailed rundowns of prospective players at each position. Analysts are breaking out each position group with special notice for former NFL players and college stars whose names are familiar to gridiron fans.
Accurate advance predictions on which players would be selected early in the USFL Draft in late February reflected SGPN’s inside sources and scope of research and the result has been return visits from information-hungry football fans looking forward to the USFL’s April 16 season openers. League competition will be airing on multiple major networks.
“We experienced tremendous growth during the NFL Playoffs window and our college basketball content with Colby Dant is more popular than ever,” added Kramer. “For USFL, we’re doing Fantasy, team-by-team breakdowns and more. The sportsbooks are going to list these USFL games and our picks and analysis will reflect a level of sophistication exclusive to SGPN.”
SGPN’s eye-opening growth was highlighted this week in an article in the Los Angeles Business Journal, which explored the entrepreneurial platform’s success as an independent entity in the midst of the sports wagering legalization environment of recent years.
SGPN experts will also assert their knowledge as part of SGPN’s new alliance with Colorcast, the innovative Social Sportstalk App that allows commentators to provide audio analysis to audiences in and around games being simultaneously viewed on television. Colorcast also provides users with stats, scores, betting odds, and other real-time information about the game. The platform and is fully interactive and is expected to provide a user experience that will attract additional followers to SGPN’s no-cost platforms.
