Sports betting can be attacked intelligently. Smart sports bettors do not gamble the same way as tourists play roulette or retirees play the slot machines. Instead, smart sports bettors are making bets that they have thought through carefully with supporting logic and/or research. 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.

This book by King Yao, author of the widely-acclaimed Weighing the Odds in Hold 'em Poker, should be used as a guideline to sports betting rather than a blueprint. The sports betting market changes and adapts quickly. The underlying principles shown in this book should help you adapt and continue to make good bets even when the market changes.

This book is for you if you want to think analytically about sports betting. It is for you if you do not want to be spoon-fed supposed winners, but want to get some ideas to improve your game. You battle bookmakers and line makers constantly; betting sports is a game of maneuvers and adjustments. You can use as many weapons as possible in this continuous fight. This book should help in that regard.

About the Author:

King Yao: I have analyzed and bet on sports for a long time, but it was after finishing writing Weighing the Odds in Hold em Poker that I turned my main focus on sports betting. There are many different ways to approach sports betting, and the more I delved into it, the more interesting and challenging I found it. You can approach it from a handicapper's point of view and try to make a better line than the line makers and the market. Or you can approach it from a relative-value player's point of view and make distributional, correlated and derivative bets. Or you can approach it from the point of view of a scalper or middler. There are numerous ways to attack the sports betting market and find positive Expected Value.

I did enjoy the process of writing Weighing the Odds in Hold em Poker and decided to write about some of the things I learned about sports betting. In February, 2006, I submitted my first article to the Two Plus Two Internet Magazine. I enjoyed writing the article as it forced me to focus on a specific topic and explore it in-depth and from different angles. After a few months of writing articles, I started writing this book.
