Johnny Detroit, founder and operator of LetItRideSports.com, merges with Pregame.com

LAS VEGAS, NV - Pregame.com, parent site of FreePicksByEmail.com, is thrilled to announce that Johnny Detroit, founder and operator of LetItRideSports.com, has joined the Pregame family.

Johnny Detroit will assume the position of Director of Player Relations, and will contribute to sportsbook relations and business development. The website LetItRideSports.com will be aggressively transitioned into the Pregame group of sites. The mergers structure includes payment of both cash and equity.

RJ Bell, president of Pregame.com, said: “Johnny Detroit is a true sports information pioneer. Johnny is a rare businessman who is both liked and respected by industry leaders as well as his many customers. Pregame is in business to satisfy the needs of our customers, and the addition of Johnny Detroit to our team will certainly go a long way toward accomplishing that.”

Johnny Detroit said: “In this business, I’ve found companies to be either innovative but small, or big but stale. Pregame is different, having gained significant scale while maintaining its customer-focused entrepreneurship. I’ve been courted by other big boys over the years, but Pregame is the only offer I ever really considered. I’m excited about now being able to focus upon what I do best – making our customers happy.”

Jocelyn Saurini, Pregame’s Director of Marketing, said: “LetItRideSports has impressively high traffic, and our entire marketing team is enthusiastic about introducing that traffic to Pregame’s unique offerings.”

Lawrence Prezman, President of Who2BetOn.com, said: “Both Johnny Detroit and RJ Bell are at the top of my list of sports betting executives. Their potential working together is certainly potent.”

Johnny Detroit won the prestigious Hilton NFL SuperContest last year, scoring a six figure payday. Johnny attended the University of Michigan and has had numerous articles published in respected gambling magazines. Prior to following his passion for sports action, Johnny worked as an executive at Ford Motor Company.
