In a nutshell:

"Sports betting is good for the soul. It gives you the satisfaction of victory, the disappointment of defeat; it delivers elation and depression. It keeps your blood running and your mind alert. It gives you goals and interests and daily deadlines."
- J. R. Miller

Listen to this story from Sonny Reizner: “My career was full of ups and downs, and all was definitely not a bed of roses,” he said. “Winning was by no means a continuous uninterrupted happening.

“Shortly after each of my four children was born, I bought educational insurance policies for them. The first four months of the year I paid substantial premiums for my oldest daughter, the next four months for my youngest daughter and the next four months for my oldest son, with a lump sum at the end of the year, paying the premium for my youngest son. I  made those payments for sixteen years and I was proud of the sacrifice and plans for my children and their future.

“Then it happened. You might say it was the inevitable, where sometimes in a lifetime of gambling one reaches the nadir of despair. I experienced a most prolonged and profound losing streak. It seemed that nothing I could do would turn it around, backing off, decreasing my bet size, quitting for awhile or what-have-you. I gradually depleted my bankroll, the essence of a gambler’s business. I went broke.”

To a professional gambler, of course, cash is his inventory, like flour to a baker or cars to a car salesman or clothes to a clothier. Without inventory, without cash, a gambler is simply out of business. He is left without inventory, without tools and equipment, without a chance to make a comeback.

Sonny explained, “In order to continue, I had to withdraw all the funds I had accumulated over sixteen years for my children's educations. My confidence was at its lowest ebb. I knew no other way except gambling on sports to support myself and my family in the style they were accustomed. I took the money set aside for my children's education and started all over again with a fresh bankroll.”

Here's a story from Lem Banker from our full report, Successful Gamblers. Lem talks about his brushes with the law as a young man: "...The police in New Jersey...if you wanted to work, you had to pay them off and (there were) a bunch of crooked cops, so I decided I wanted to go where gambling was legal, and I moved to Las Vegas, and I have been out here since 1958...I came out and I was broke."

Having a daughter on January 1, 1960, Lem recalls, "...I had no money...I bet $300 apiece and I won both bets; Six hundred dollars to pay the hospital...If I had lost...my wife might still be in the hospital, (laughing).

"It was touch-and-go for a long time, I ran a couple of books downtown, the old Saratoga Book which is now Leroy’s and across the street the following years was the Derby Sports Book. The fellow that ran that retired after that interstate law came into effect, the Kennedy Law. So I took over the sports there with no bankroll and whatever money we took in that day we paid off the winners from the previous day; - that is how small of a bankroll we had.

"Then I saw that it was just a rough business, a lot of hours and there were a lot of illegal bets and we were getting only just a little bit of action. There was a lot of pocket books around town with guys working out of their apartments. I decided I would be better off being a player. I made most of my income betting, but I was never a big success until 1964. I had about $10,000 to my name, which was quite a bit of money. Southern Cal was playing Notre Dame, and it was the final game of the season. Notre Dame was the number one rated team in the country, undefeated, untied, a bunch of All-Americans on the team…And I knew South Cal was getting some players back and this was a big game for them and if they won this game there was a good chance they were going to the Rose Bowl. Notre Dame was already in.

"I took 10 points in the game and I invited 6 of my friends to fly to LA, as my guests, and checked into a Beverly Hills Hotel. I hired a Limo and I figured if I lose I am going into another profession, - but I wanted to go out in class.

"I hired the Limo and we pulled up in front of the Coliseum and a friend of mine saw us and, gee, must be some big movie actor. He saw me get out with my wife and about 6 other friends. (laughing)

"Like I said, I took 10 points in the game and at halftime Notre Dame was winning 17 to nothing, but Southern Cal had turned the ball over many times.

"I went down to the concession at half time. I usually don’t eat hotdogs at a game but I went down, I just wanted to get away from my friends and I heard people saying this is the closest 17-nothing game they have ever seen. Well, to make a long story short, South Cal came back and scored 20 and ended up winning the game. I not only won the bet they won the game outright 20 to 17. That re-established me. I regained my confidence…"

Bob McCune agrees with Lem that "baseball is probably the best sport to bet on because the odds can be in your favor. You can take or lay the price."

Bob often uses parlays when playing baseball. "In baseball, parlays are figured by playing money into money," Bob explains. "The line remains constant in parlays, whether the parlay contains two teams or ten teams. The way it works is, the original bet plus the winnings is bet on the next game. The winnings from the next game are then parlayed into the next game, and so on. This means that the odds remain constant whether you play one or several teams in parlays.

"There are several ways to play baseball parlays if you are the kind of player that likes a big payoff once in a while as opposed to frequent single wins. First of all, consider the straight two or more teams in a single parlay.

"A second option is the 'round robin'. In this situation the player takes three or more teams and plays each combination in two or three team parlays. An example would be where teams A, B, and C are considered in a two team 'round robin'. There are three separate 2-bet parlays, AB, AC, and BC. Another example would be combining 4 teams, A, B, C, D, in a three team 'round robin'. In this situation there would be ABC, ABD, ACD and BCD.

"A third way of playing baseball parlays is to take one (or more) key teams which I'll designate one as Team A. Next you might consider two or more other teams, say B, C and D (or more). Then you might parlay your key team into each of the others as separate two team parlays. In this case that could be AB, AC, and AD. You might also use two or more key teams and parlay them with several other teams. However, I will say that mathematically speaking, your end results should make you about the same amount of money as flat betting the same total monies on the same games in single plays. There is some sophistication that could make this method a little more profitable. However, a sharp, mathematically oriented handicapper could work this out for himself."

These three men, Sonny, Lem and Bob, don't agree on everything. Lem advocates effective money management, of course, but it is based on his own formulas and concepts. He has a system where he may win early games and up his ante on late games. "Win early and sweeten your bets late," he says.

Bob McCune believes that is a controversial idea. Bob admits, "It's hard to argue with success, and it evidently works for Lem...Personally, I believe it is not generally a good idea to increase the size of your bets right after you’ve had a winning streak. My friend, J. R. Miller, explains, 'Nobody can know when they are ‘in’ a winning streak, or ‘in’ a losing streak; you can only know when you’ve just had a winning streak or a losing streak.' Even if you've won a dozen bets in a row, you’re no more likely than normal to win the next bet.”
