Book Summary

This book will give the reader some lights about all the math behind sports betting. From an explanation of the most common types of bets to what the numbers really mean in the field. The glossary at the end of the book is a great tool for those who are new to this type of betting. Betting in sports is related to a new and different type of lingo that not all players and betters are familiar with. The book is divided into two big parts. The first one about betting in a general fashion that can be used to bet in many different sports. The second part of the book is about betting in the NFL (National Football League). If you, as a reader, are looking for some magic formula to wake up tomorrow swimming in cash, this is not the book. The book reminds readers that Sports Betting is not legal in some states and advice to bet where this is well regulated. The book explains how sportsbooks work and how your bets are structure and paid later. It is a good read for those who want to understand better the science and math behind this and have better chances of winning a sports bet.
