The best thing you can do to successfully sports bet is gather as much information as you can before you wager. Now that Bally Bet Indiana is live, one great way to get intel on your favorite teams is to follow people covering the team on Twitter. Here are our picks for must-follows if you want the information you need to build your Indiana sports betting bankroll:
The best of Indianapolis Colts Twitter
Greg Bremer: @gregbremer
The Colts beat reporter for CNHI Sports Indiana, Bremer is on the NFL beat full time. During the week, you’ll find him profiling some of the lesser-known players on the roster as well as the latest transactions for the team. On game day, be prepared for a lot of tweets. Bremer offers great updates if you can’t follow the game yourself, but if you are watching live, you may want to mute for a couple of hours.
Mike Chappell: @mchappell51
Want some serious institutional knowledge on the Colts? Chappell is your man. As his Twitter bio notes, he has been reporting on the team since 1984 when they moved from Baltimore to Indianapolis. In addition to sharing coverage from FOX 59, he is big on stats, which is a great thing to be mindful of when betting on sports. Be prepared for live-tweeting of Colts games, but instead of just reactions and memes, he will provide you with drive charts, defensive players stepping up, and injury reports.
Zak Keefer: @zkeefer
The host of the One Percent Better Colts podcast and the team reporter for The Athletic, Keefer writes some great profiles about the players and staff in Indy. His perspective during games is that of a fan, so if you want someone to commiserate with, he is worth a follow.
Larra Overton: @LarraOverton
Overton brings plenty of great info as a sideline reporter for the team, including insights from Coach Frank Reich. Insights on the game plan are staples of her feed, but she is also exactly the person to follow if you want to see the best of the rest of Colts Twitter. She is a master curator and doesn’t miss any big events from the Indiana sports scene or the NFL sports scene.
Mike Wells: @MikeWellsNFL
If the ESPN credential isn’t impressive enough, reporter Mike Wells is also a professor at Indiana University at Bloomington. He isn’t afraid to ask tough questions about Carson Wentz’s health and other subjects. His game-time tweets are extremely helpful for fantasy players too, as he will note both when injured players leave and return the action.
The best of Indiana Pacers Twitter
Caitlin Cooper: @C2_Cooper
Podcast host and Indiana Cornrows blog contributor Caitlin Cooper is an avid Twitter user who loves to break down video plays on social. Her basketball acumen is top-notch and her content is for those who really want to understand the game at a higher level. Just one example is a recent story she did purely breaking down how often the team ran a single play.
Chris Denari: @ChrisDenari
The play-by-play announcer for the Pacers has been in the role for 16 years. One of the most recognizable voices on Bally Sports Indiana, he also does frequent radio appearances, which he gives heads ups about on his Twitter account.
Tony East: @TEastNBA
Just how committed is East to his job? He was covering the NBA G League Fort Wayne Mad Ants. East seems to always be on top the latest Pacers news, including players coming from the G League to join the team like Isaiah Jackson, who is finishing his rehab from an injury. When you follow East, the Pacers aren’t the only Indiana sports tea, you’ll get info on. As an added bonus, he also covers the WNBA’s Indiana Fever.
Mark Montieth: @MarkMontieth
Want someone with a good historic perspective of Indiana basketball? Mark Montieth is probably your guy. He has written three books about Indiana sports, including one about the early history of the Pacers. He is big on stats on his feed as well, so his info is a nice blend of history and analytics.
