    Does it take forever to get paid out, like when you're a customer of these sites? I'm still waiting on $250 from 2000.

    Covers.com is not a betting site.

    Another freelancer I know does a bit of work for them and says it's been pretty good so far, for what it's worth.

    Anyone know if they're able to get their reporters credentialed? Even though it's not a sports betting site, I could see flacks getting squeamish about the idea...

    What kind of freelance work is this?... Is this game coverage, or features, or what?

    I'm pretty sure this is more about trends and overall issues.

    Here's the primary story. From what I understand, it's not a whole lot of game coverage.

    C'mon, a gambling website is not going to be sending people into MLB pressboxes.

    Go to their site and read the articles already posted to get an idea of what they are looking for.
