Must read A little bit more difficult for me being based in the UK to understand the logic that goes into creating lines on the prominent US based sports Baseball/NFL as I don't really understand/follow those sports I concentrate primarily on Football,Tennis,Cricket markets. However the level of detail/insight on the how lines are created/monitored was second to none. Also as you touched on in the book the In-play markets in Europe are a lot more mature they've been around for years the information on the 3rd party feed was also a real eye opener. Have to say this was the first book I've put the effort into writing a review on. if you have any interest in learning about the Sports betting industry as a whole you have to read this book. I'll be sure to look for more ass bets :) *****
The book is not for beginners and focuses on the American sportsbooks Some of the maths could have been simplified more to make the relevant point.
Must read book for anyone serious about sports betting I have read some of Ed's books about poker and gambling so i was looking forward to his first book about sports betting. I was not dissapointed, the whole book is very readable and gives a lot of good advice and suggestions. Of course some of it was already known to me or otherwise not useful but for the price definitly a must read book. Greetings from Austria!
