LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – This is something that most bettors could never see happening. A professional sports franchise teaming with a sports “tout” service — actually, the technical phrase is a “sports betting recommendation service.” They make picks for bettors to (supposedly) follow.

The Knights announced Wednesday that they have teamed with UpickTrade. The partnership marks the first sponsorship between the Mexican-based company and an NHL franchise.
