This article talks about various options of betting literature to increase your knowledge on sports “gambling”.
1. Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games are Won
by Tobias J. Moskowitz & L. Jon Wertheim.
”This book attempts to overturn some of the most cherished truisms of sports, and reveal the hidden forces that shape how basketball, baseball, football, and hockey games are played, won and lost.”
2. Weighing The Odds in Sports Betting
by King Yao
”The purpose of this book is to give you tools to succeed at sports betting, to show you how to evaluate, compare and view sports betting from an analytical perspective, not from a gambling perspective.”
3. The Odds: One Season, Three Gamblers, and the Death of their Las Vegas
by Chad Millman.
”This book paints a vivid portrait of Las Vegas in light and shadow and follows three [bettors] throughout the NCAA season, taking readers behind the scenes and into their lives as they win, lose and eventually risk everything.”
4. Sports Arbitrage: Riskless Investment
by George Lynam.
”This book provides the theory and practice of this riskless investment and with many examples shows how it is possible to generate a substantial income even from a small starting bank. If you want to take a look into the exciting world of riskless sports investment, whether you’re a beginner or professional, then this book is for you. You’re guaranteed to learn something new.”
To sum up, in my opinion the best teacher when it comes to sports betting, is experience. Winning and losing is better than any betting literature. However I recommend reading at least one of these books to start thinking about sports betting a little bit differently.
