Beneath each matchup for the games, there is a link to predictions....where there is a write up  then a score prediction

What person or groups writes this?

Good question. I haven't noticed that it was there. Wonder what the record on it for the season is?

The previews and predictions for all games across all leagues are written by Covers.com staff.

They are not generic AP previews, they are written by our dynamite editorial team.

Well, mysteriously after Jason Logan(staff writer had) 2/3 weeks of over 80% ATS wins in NFL the staff picks were discontinued. These picks were free and were listed in the "staff picks" area.

So, put your business hat on and ask yourself that question?

My money is on this answer: It is taking money away from the  "experts" to give away free money winning picks.

If these free predictions also start to be monitored, produce a profitable result, and are reported as such...they too will be canned.

If people can get a profitable result by following the free predictions, why would anyone pay the covers experts? 

We aren't stupid ...

Exactly but you sure aren't getting any long-term profits from their free predictions. And I still find it pretty funny that this place promotes their touts to help you beat the book yet the site is lousy with ad's for bookies. A slight conflict of interests there.....unless you get ends for each side
