The Painted Lines has been a top-of-the-line source for betting advice, particularly for the NFL, for the past couple years. Our resident betting expert, Money Max, has been serving up winning two- and three-star plays like candy. We just recently added a sports betting podcast to our ever-growing family of pods, Tough Cover Podcast. And now we’re offering you the opportunity to cash in on all this advice!

We are partnering with XLMedia and a couple of the top online sportsbooks/casinos to bring you the best offers for new user signups. If you haven’t started betting on sports yet, this is a great place to start. Before you begin, however, make sure you understand the basics of sports betting with this very helpful guide. We provide helpful tips, great advice, and winning picks – but sports betting is still gambling. Please gamble responsibly. If you have a gambling problem, please call one of the helplines at the bottom of the page.
