Summary

How do sportsbooks make their lines? Which types of bets are the best? Can you beat the house?

The Logic Of Sports Betting answers all these questions and more with a dash of humor and a whole lot of real talk about how it all works. Peek behind the counter and learn how sportsbooks operate. Combine that insider knowledge with why-didn’t-I-think-of-that sports betting logic, and you have the winning formula.

Ed Miller is a best-selling (over 300,000 copies sold) author of books on poker and gambling. This is his first book on sports betting, but maybe his favorite book to write so far.

Matthew Davidow is a sports modeler, using proprietary methods to beat major sports betting markets for over 15 years, and co-founding two leading private sports analytics firms along the way.

What people are saying about The Logic Of Sports Betting:

"Matt and Ed are two of the smartest minds in sports betting." (Rufus Peabody, professional sports bettor)

"As a sportsbook employee for 30-plus years, I find it difficult to read or watch anything about sports betting. But I could not put The Logic Of Sports Betting down. It’s that good." (Robert Walker, Las Vegas bookmaker)

Very technical, gets boring and long

This book dives deep into the technical side of sports betting. So deep that the only way to really comprehend it is to go out and buy the physical book to actually analyze tables and math. If you are looking for the super technical text book of sports betting, this is it.

This book was nice because it actually gave you the information to build a foundation unlike the others I’ve read that are stories.

A lot of info, but it starts slow.

There is a lot of information into finding good bets and how to calculate them.
