David Malinsky joins Pregame.com editor-in-chief of our upcoming Pregame.com News division. The goal of Pregame.com News is to be the first organization to comprehensively cover the sports betting industry with impartial and uncompromised journalistic standards.
This will be a long and winding journey, but what's certain is NO ONE is better suited to guide the way as David Malinsky. David's total focus will be news (written, radio, and video). He will personally be writing a 5-day-a-week column titled Point Blank. Due to the possibility of journalistic conflict and/or distraction, David will NOT be selling picks. On my wish list for editor-in-chief, David was #1 and there was no #2.
David Malinsky is into his fourth decade of helping to set the pulse of the Sports Betting world, after first hearing that special heart-beat as a professional journalist in the late 70's. He published the first issue of The Gridiron Report in 1981, when beating the game became a full-time quest - eventually leading to his move to Las Vegas in 1988. Throughout the 90's David could be heard as the host of the legendary Stardust Line radio show - in addition to expert contributions across countless media outlets.
Throughout his storied career, David has been intimately involved with each of the industry’s three essential platforms. As a professional bettor, participating in the famed Stardust Lottery on a daily basis, plus two separate multi-year periods working exclusively for the most successful syndicate the sports betting world has ever known. As an oddsmaker, serving as a paid consultant for multiple Nevada Hotel/Casino properties. And, from the other side of the counter, over 10 years of experience developing sportsbooks across the Latin America/Caribbean region. Dave Malinsky has seen it all from point-blank range, and he’s willing to share his unique perspective with you. But the genuine passion for Winning has never waned, and he continues to put into play a working encyclopedia of edges when the bell rings each day.
