With sports betting now legal in several US states, I might as well give away my number one piece of advice for amateurs looking to gamble: Don’t bet. It’s an easy recommendation. Numbers implied by betting markets are too good, too close to the truth that, when accounting for the vig, it’s nearly impossible to make a long term profit. But just because your local statistician tells you not to bet doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check out betting market odds.
