To be successful in sports betting, you have to know every detail about your teams and how they factor into the league at large. Digging around for all the various stats is difficult for less experienced and seasoned sports betters alike. Would it not be better to have everything at your fingertips in an organized, central location?
Bryan Pisnoy, founder of ZipMobl LLC, is no stranger to sports betting, but grew frustrated with the unorganized research involved. “I had to check five different apps and multiple websites a day just to get what I needed to know,” explains Pisnoy.
Pisnoy decided to take his hobby-level programming knowledge and design a new sports betting utility for all: Sports Lines. Geared for both the casual sports fan and the serious sports better, Pisnoy has high hopes for the integration of Sports Lines into the daily lives of fans everywhere.
“I want Sports Lines to be on par with ESPN’s sports apps,” explains Pisnoy. “When people buy a new phone, I want my app to be their first download.”
Teams within the MLB, NBA, NCAAB, NCAAF, NFL, NHL, various European leagues, and the World Cup are all available for tracking, and Pisnoy is currently working to add MMA and boxing categories as well.
For the casual sports fan, Sports Lines offers breakdowns of past, present, and future games, stat lines for the teams playing, injury reports, and game previews and recaps. The betting crowd will notice that Sports Lines features additional tabs for “my picks” and “my stats” as well as general stats for the over/under, favorites, money lines, and point spreads on specific teams.
“My picks” is home to all the bets you have placed on different teams. You can add your bets as either straight bets, parlays, or custom bets. The “my stats” page breaks down your open bets, bets completed within the last 24 hours, and lifetime stats into four categories: win/lose/draw, money won/lost, total risked, and average bet.
While users cannot actually place bets from within the app, inputting your bet data is smooth and easy. So if you are betting on the St. Louis Blues to beat Dallas, you can place your bets, then enter them into Sports Lines, and pinpoint exactly where you stand over the course of their game and how you come out at the end.
“I refuse to neglect a specific demographic of sports fan,” says a determined Pisnoy. He wants to grow Sports Lines into a major domestic sport and sports betting app, and an international app as well. Additionally, Pisnoy is looking to integrate social media into Sports Lines down the road.
Currently, Sports Lines is available for Android devices, but iOS users can look forward to its availability later this summer.
ZipMobl and Sports Lines were featured at the April Tech Cocktail Week mixer in Las Vegas.
