Beginning sports bettors will find this pretty useful. It contains a lot of basic information but I thought his money management was a bit muddled. He provides some introductory maths on calculating your expected value of a bet but I was disappointed that there was no coverage on actual handicapping. Coming up with the line to compare to the books seems to me much more fundamental than some arbitrary maths to find the probability of your line being worth a bet or not. There is also a heavy focus on American betting and the NFL in particular. A lot of the football material was a bit pointelss too ie pages and pages of results data which showed that a potential method of betting was not worth it. Good info for a beginner but not for anyone more advanced.

Probably the best sports betting book currently written, equivalent to Yao’s ‘Weighing the Odds in Sports Betting’. This book deals with many aspects to sports betting, especially for those wanting to make money consistently over time. But take note – winning in sports requires patience, discipline and knowledge on finding the best situation to enter your money. Wong explains the fundamentals like edges, reading the odds, the types of bets, and the basics on how to conduct your own analysis – essential to anyone. A disadvantage from an Australian or New Zealand perspective is that half the book contains detailed data, analysis and evaluation of American NFL. The book is stuffed with tables, records and statistics. That said, you can follow the author’s conceptual and analytical thinking with his line of reasoning, and then apply this methodology to your favourite sport. If you are prepared to do a bit of research to get yourself up-to-speed on the market and up-to-date on your sport, you will be putting yourself in a position to ‘get the best of it’. This book is a ‘must buy’ as it will help you in many ways.

This text does not tell you a whole lot if you know what you are doing already. However, if you are not familiar with the basics of probability, or how bookmakers have an edge, or what the sensible things to do are when looking for odds to be on a sporting event, then this book is not too bad a thing to have read. When punting, something that gives you one useful fact can of course be worth a lot of money.
