John Patrick’s Sports Handicapping
Sports Betting / August 17, 2017

Ok, so this is a book written by someone who clearly has spent A LOT of time inside sports betting circles or at least some place like Vegas. He seems to know what he’s talking about but yet you can’t stop feeling like you’re being conned by a guy you met at Vegas. The book has chapters for every sport and also educates the beginner very well about all the sports betting systems that exist. It starts with few philosophical chapters such as describing the bettor, the how and whats of handicapping, expectations of winning, ‘The Little Three’ and learning to win. Once you are ‘educated’ about general betting, the book dives into the concept of ‘bankroll’. It has nice little chapters on laying out bets, short bankrolls, loss limits, minimizing losses, win goals, accepting your goals, and what a ‘proper’ bankrol should be. Once the bankroll side of things are clearer, the book dives into the meat and bones of handicapping; the knowledge part. The part starts by defining what Knowledge is in sports handicapping and then goes on to explain every part of the industry such as linemakers, bookies and then explains lines, parlays, round robins, flat betting,…

Sports Betting and Bookmaking: An American History
Sports Betting / August 2, 2017

Today’s book is about schooling you on the history of Sports Betting and Book Making. Arne K. Lang chooses not to focus on the usuals in this subject such as ‘rogues’ and various ‘scandals’ that took place, instead he focuses purely as a historian and provides information without baiting for attention. The book starts with Leonard Jerome, and goes on to have an entire chapter on New York’s Racetrack-building Boom. The book also has a chapter on outlaws and big Plungers, and moves on to a funny named chapter ‘The Tax Man Cometh’ and transitions into Pro Football Betting era and ends with the internet era and high tech phenomena such as simulcasting. It is a well designed, beautifully executed book, a great read. We ‘reccomenth’ it! 🙂

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 naĂŻve 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? I had an amazing opportunity, but I was too damn dumb to realize it. This exquisite creature exited my life forever, only to revisit every now and…

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.
