Description (from amazon.com) I will teach you how to win more bets, but first a story… I was hungover. I had spent the previous night in an Italian bar trying to convince naïve girls that I was Jason Sehorn of the New York Giants. This was my move. It wasn’t particularly effective, but it was the best I had… The next morning I found myself on a train going from Bologna to Rome. I was young, and this would be my first visit to the ancient city. As luck would have it, I was seated next to Evelyn O’Reilly. Evelyn was a stunning foreign exchange student from Dublin, and we hit if off. We hit if off so well that when she got to her stop in Florence she invited me to join her for the weekend. In a moment of sheer madness, I politely declined. I had the next few hours to contemplate what had just happened, and I became paralyzed by my own stupidity. What the hell was wrong with me?

Trading Bases: How a Wall Street Trader Made a Fortune Betting on Baseball
Sports Betting / July 13, 2017

Original Description (from Amazon.com Page) An ex–Wall Street trader improved on Moneyball’s famed sabermetrics and beat the Vegas odds with his own betting methods. Here is the story of how Joe Peta turned fantasy baseball into a dream come true. Joe Peta turned his back on his Wall Street trading career to pursue an ingenious—and incredibly risky—dream. He would apply his risk-analysis skills to Major League Baseball, and treat the sport like the S&P 500. In Trading Bases, Peta takes us on his journey from the ballpark in San Francisco to the trading floors and baseball bars of New York and the sportsbooks of Las Vegas, telling the story of how he created a baseball “hedge fund” with an astounding 41 percent return in his first year. And he explains the unique methods he developed. Along the way, Peta provides insight into the Wall Street crisis he managed to escape: the fragility of the midnineties investment model; the disgraced former CEO of Lehman Brothers, who recruited Peta; and the high-adrenaline atmosphere where million-dollar sports-betting pools were common.
