Best sports betting books
We can divide sports betting books into three groups. The first one corresponds to the relatively recent books in Spanish. The second is the English books. These are often older books, but they are still current precisely because they are good. Finally, there are books that do not focus exclusively on sports betting, although they are really useful for bettors. Let’s discover them.
Read Before You Bet (Samuel Holgado)
This is one of the best books for beginners in the world of sports betting. What’s more, if you are thinking of taking your first steps in this world and you have arrived here looking for books to guide you, this could be the solution. The author himself explains at the beginning that this is the book he would have liked to read before entering the world of sports betting. It is one of the most comprehensive.
It is a very honest read, from which we can draw interesting lessons and conclusions about what lies ahead in this sector. It is mainly aimed at novice bettors, but it can also be quite instructive for those who have been betting for a long time. After all, it never hurts to remember how to create your strategy, set goals or analyse matches and odds.
Play your cards right (Leo Margets)
We finish with this book by the number 1 poker player in Spain. Leo Margets analyses in his book how important it is to make decisions in our life that are going to be profitable. Poker is the main theme of the book, but its contents can be applied not only to sports betting but to life in general.
It offers strategies and helps us to improve our decision making. And just as you can decide whether or not to go or not to go in a poker game, you can also analyse whether or not you are interested in a bet. Differentiating luck from talent, managing stress or assessing risk will be key in poker, in our financial, social or working life. Managing uncertainty is key in any aspect of life.
Sports betting: making a living from betting
A common misconception is that you can quickly make a living from betting. This is utopian, both in sports betting and in casino betting. On the one hand, it presents us with a series of sports betting strategies that we can use to try to improve our bankroll or tips for our bets, both nationally and internationally.
On the other hand, we find very interesting information on how bookmakers work and how to manage your bankroll. A realistic view of the world that we don’t always have. Although a priori it may seem that it is aimed at an audience that is just starting out in sports betting, perhaps it is more recommendable for the user who wants to advance from novice to experienced. And we insist, you can’t make a living from betting.
