Successful bettors will often rely on being able to access accurate information before anyone else to get an edge over the bookmaker. While information on Twitter might already be common knowledge, it can still help inform betting decisions. Continue reading for a run-down of the top ten must-follow betting accounts on Twitter.

Pinnacle (@Pinnacle)

We think our own Twitter account is one of the best accounts to follow for any aspiring or professional bettor – with good reason. The Pinnacle Twitter account is brimming with betting-related content in the form of unique and insightful articles, as well as links to the various betting podcasts that we create.

Our articles and podcasts cover all the major sports and leagues, from soccer, tennis, and boxing, to the NBA, NFL, and NHL. Pinnacle’s Twitter even runs live event coverage on major sporting events to keep you up to date with the latest odds and action. If all of that wasn’t enough, there’s even plenty of competitions that give you the chance to win a range of prizes, including soccer jerseys, AirPods, and limited-edition merchandise!

Joseph Buchdahl (@12Xpert)

David Purdum (@DavidPurdum)

A feature writer for ESPN Chalk, David Purdum is a great follow to keep your timeline up-to-date with the latest betting news across various sports. Anyone looking for interesting stories in the world of betting should look no further than David.

In addition to interesting snippets from bookmakers that give a glimpse into the industry, @DavidPurdum is also usually one of the first to break important news. Stating himself “I am not good at gambling”, you shouldn’t hope for a stream of winning picks from David (you’ll struggle to find that anywhere on Twitter). Instead, utilise the information he provides to keep up-to-date with all things betting.
