Meet the Squad

 

Our goal at Check Down is to present you- the sports fan- with the most insightful, bold, and heartfelt takes on the hottest storylines in sports. 

 

 

And as a testament to our excellence in this regard, we were recently named by Feedspot as one of the 30 best sports betting websites in the world thanks largely to the quality and consistency of our posts, influence on Facebook and other social media platforms, and our Google search reputation.

We’re particularly proud of this ranking because we consider Check Down, relative to the other prominent blogs on that list such as Betway, Sports Insights, and Betfair, to still be in its nascent stages considering we began operations in May 2016. Plus, they even gave us a cool badge to honor this achievement! 

 

 

Stay up to date with our team of writers that will continue fulfilling our promise to deliver the most insightful, bold, and heartfelt sports opinions.
