One of the things that has propelled sports betting over the last couple of years has been the boutique bet where things like 'first scorer' or 'first booking' can be just as profitable - if not more - than a simple 'who won.' In the betting world, those sorts of bets have been frowned upon in certain territories and are in danger of being expunged from the system. But it doesn't mean that you can't still throw out the same challenge to your Facebook friends and show them that you rule when it comes to sports knowledge. SportzPicks is a new iOS app that let's you test your sports skills against your Facebook friends and win bragging rights...until the next game.
