Tools and resources used by professional gamblers

Contents

The Business of Betting is the world’s leading gambling podcast. It features intelligent conversations with professional bettors, operators, academics and technologists.

Guests often recommend tools and resources, such as websites, books and podcasts which helped them succeed in the gambling industry. I have collated all 450 recommendations into these lists

Articles and blogs

Betting at Betfair

Betfair’s written content is recommended 3 times. Professional golf bettor, Brady Kannon (ep 44) particularly recommends the golf content from Dave Tindall and Steven Rawlings.

Pinnacle Betting Resources

Pinnacle’s written content is recommended 3 times. Shaun Beirne (ep 1) particularly recommends Joseph Buchdal’s articles, who was the guest on episode 48.

Covers

The US sports betting content website is recommended 4 times, although 3 of those were by people who wrote for it. One of those was Parlay Queen Monique (ep 38) who displayed low betting acumen.

Covers is specifically not recommended by data driven professional bettor Rob Pizzola (ep 50). His criticism is that the content is short term trend based, which is just searching for patterns in randomness.

Data and tipping services

Ken-Pom

The Pomeroy College Basketball Ratings is recommended 4 times.

This is a great place to start for NCCA basketball betting. However, because so many people are already using Ken-Pom you won’t find an edge using it on its own.

Horse racing services

Champion Bets is an Australian horse racing and sports tipping service that is recommended 3 times, although 2 of those were by guests who worked there.

Racing post is also recommended 3 times.

Odds comparisons

Odds comparisons in general are widely recommended. Dynamic Odds gets 4 recommendations.

Podcasts and videos

US sports betting podcasts

The Bill Simmons Podcast and Beat the book are both recommended 3 times.

The Racing Rant

Formerly known as The Punters Show this Australian horse racing website and YouTube series is recommended 4 times, although 2 of those were by guests who worked there.

Academic papers

Rational Decision-Making Under Uncertainty

This important paper is recommended 4 times. It demonstrates how bad people are at gambling due to not understanding probability, randomness and risk (the books on the professional gambler’s reading list can cure you of that).

Software
