The Betting News Team

Daniel Collins – Head of Content/Writer

Daniel Collins or Sweatpant Jesus on Twitter has been an avid sports fan from birth. His father played semi-pro soccer in Australia and his grandfather was a minor league pitcher before getting drafted in the Army.

Since he could walk, Daniel has had a soccer ball at his feet or a basketball in his hands. He has followed sports his entire life, spending countless hours watching his favorite teams play, live and on TV.

He is a season-ticket holder for Arsenal FC in the UK and goes whenever he is in London. He has been to countless Tennessee Titans and Nashville Predators games, as he is a native Nashvillian and loves Tennessee sports.

But above all that, he loves stats. He has always been fascinated by the analytics side of all sports and the edge that it brings when you understand the numbers.

Sports betting became legal in Tennessee in 2019 and that is when Daniel dove head-first into finding the value and learning the ins and outs of the beautiful world that is sports betting.

He applies his sports knowledge as a former athlete and avid watcher to his expertise of line reading and the spots where investments must be made. He spends countless hours finding the value and looking for the best bets, not because it is his job but because he truly loves sports.

When Daniel isn’t watching, writing about or betting on sports, he is probably outside enjoying nature, drinking a cup of coffee or a nice beer, or eating a delicious meal with his fiancé. Daniel speaks German almost fluently and was a professional actor and model for 8 years in Europe and the US.

Being a dual citizen of the UK and the US, he loves travelling and learning about new cultures and people. He loves sharing his experiences with his family, close friends, and his dog, Berta.

Life is truly beautiful and should be enjoyed every day. He hopes you find the joy in what you do and stops by his articles and enjoys what he has to say. Follow him on X @SweatpantJesus and as always, Peace and Love ✌🏼.

Eddie Griffin – Senior Writer

Eddie has been a sports fanatic for much of his life, which led him to sports media and sports betting.

Eddie’s love of sports and soaking up statistics and history began with sports reference and history books, preview magazines, and baseball cards in elementary school.

He first dabbled into writing about sports while in college and has since accumulated over a decade of experience in sports media. After spending a few years in other endeavors, Eddie returned to the industry in 2020. He has been with Betting News since January 2021 and has been in his current role since June 2021.

Eddie has been an avid sports bettor for almost 15 years. His favorite sports/leagues to bet on are basketball (college, NBA, and international), MLB, and tennis, but he loves to bet on–and follow–many sports.

If you were to look at his betting history, Eddie loves his overs. But he considers it a sign of growth that he can tolerate betting on an under at least once or twice a week now.

As a sports fan, Eddie longs to see Mississippi State’s men’s basketball team reach the Final Four again one day and for Luton Town FC to reach the Premier League in the near future.

Outside of sports, Eddie enjoys cooking, music, video games, and spending time with his family.

Even as an experienced bettor, there is a lot of information out there to take in. Waiting on the outcome of your bets can certainly be stressful, and bad beats and near misses can certainly be frustrating. But placing your bets shouldn’t be either of those things, even with so much information to sift through.

With that in mind, Eddie’s aim for Betting News is for it to be a resource that he enjoys and benefits from as a bettor just as much as everyone else does, novices and veterans alike.

Nate Hornung – Writer/Content Creator

Nate Hornung, better known online as Shaggy Bets, has lived and breathed sports since before he could talk. He was rarely seen without a ball as a child, and played virtually every sport growing up. You name it, Nate played it.

Born and raised in Kansas City, Nate loves his hometown teams. He spends plenty of Sunday’s at Arrowhead Stadium cheering on the Chiefs with his friends and family. Although the Royals and Jayhawks constantly break his heart, he can’t help but think they’ll win it all next year.

Nate has always been a numbers guy, and that’s what really got him into sports betting. He simply enjoys the process of interpreting statistics to predict an expected outcome. Whether or not the projection is accurate, Nate enjoys further analyzing why his bet won or lost.

Outside of sports, Nate spends most of his time with his beautiful fíance and two small pups: Scooby and Freddy. Naturally, it made sense for him to roll with the Mystery Machine theme and call himself “Shaggy”.

He and his fíance love to travel. During the summer they escape to The Lake as much as possible, and each winter typically consists of a Ski Trip to Colorado.

Nate is constantly searching for the World’s Best Cheeseburger. The current title holder is Do-B’s Burger Barn in Emporia, KS.

Nate believes wholeheartedly that positivity can change the world. 

Hate is just the absence of love.
