Although forums used to be the spot for sports betting conversation, Twitter is now where it’s at. For handicapping games beforehand to picks to live chatter as the games are happening, there’s nothing better than betting on the games and watching the tweets and memes scroll by.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best sports betting Twitter follows. That includes handicappers, accounts that provide useful information and a few others that will entertain you.
