…the answer might surprise you.


Today's professional-level sports bettors are not what most people believe them to be. Successful sports bettors appear to be pretty much like anyone else. Most are married, have children, a mortgage, a car loan, a lawn mower, and all the other accouterments of 'normal' people. The difference is, they absolutely love what they do for a living. Although they generally put in a lot of hours, they are their own boss. They can pick their own hours and their own work environment. Generally speaking, many don't consider themselves gamblers at all; most would say they're better described as 'investors.' Sports betting, after all, can be likened in many ways to investing in the stock market, only in very, very fast motion.

With sports betting you don't wait for weeks or months to know if your investment was successful. You get an answer in about three hours. Consequently, you can turn over your total bankroll much more quickly, and your investment remains much more liquid. Typically, a full-time professional sports bettor can have up to 2,000 opinions per year and an "edge" (an expectation of winning) of between 58% and 60% of those bets wherein he must risk 11 to win ten.

J.V. Miller is publisher of and one of the world’s top sports handicappers.  He is a third generation sports bettor. For The Miller Family, gambling is a family affair.


As a successful sports bettor you have no time clock, no boss, no employees, no 'customers', no daily commute battling traffic, - none of the hassles of most everyone else you know. You can work from home and 'home' can be anywhere you choose. You can work from Mexico City, or New York, or Moosebreath, North Dakota - or anywhere between. You can spend the day in swimming trunks or tuxedoes or in nothing at all, - and you have plenty of time for your favorite hobbies or other pursuits.

 As mentioned above, sports betting has many of  the characteristics of investing in commodities or stocks, - but without  some of the disadvantages concerning insider trading, Enron-style scandals, overpriced broker fees and a general feeling of not being in control of your own destiny. In the stock market you're pitting your expertise against world-class experts and corporate insiders who get most news a long time before you do. On the other hand, with this weekend's sports games, you're pitting your expertise against the average sports bettor. It is self-evident who is easier to outthink, the full-time stock market player or the average sports bettor.

The average sports bettor is amazingly uninformed. He bets from intuition and emotion. He does very little actual research. When you consider you figure to win 50% of your plays simply flipping a coin, can it really be all that tough to win more than 53 percent?

For openers, they are not those screaming fellows on cable television wanting to sell you picks. Forget those guys. Ninety-nine percent of sports touts make their living by selling their worthless picks to gullible people expecting instant riches. Those touts' advice, including such nonsense as a "1-star, 2-star, 3-star" betting system, or promises of 75% winners, proves they are NOT genuine professional-level sports bettors at all. Those fellows don't actually bet for a living; they make their living by peddling their picks.

Before his death, Jack Painter (right) taught
 sports betting classes with Bob McCune at
Community College of Clark County, Las Vegas.
He sometimes invited me to be a guest speaker.

At 60% winners over 2,000 plays a bettor would have 1200 winners and 800 losers. At those figures, his gross profit would be over 292 betting units. If his bet size is 1 percent of his beginning bankroll, and even if he does not increase the size of his bets as his bankroll increases, he makes 300 percent profit on his original investment every year. Risking 2 percent of his original bankroll, he figures to make 600 percent profit per year. Changing his bet size when his bankroll increases (or decreases) by 50%, he can make much more. Compare that to investing in stocks or bonds, which pale by comparison.

I spoke at a sports seminar at Las Vegas' Palace Station.
It was in a conference room next to an evangelical Christian
meeting...There's no place like Las Vegas!

...And all it takes is to call at least 58-60% winners against pointspreads and totals, - and, of course, to properly manage your bankroll.

That's what this web site and this material is all about. Take a look at the Order Page. The 'how-to' materials available there are by the most respected sports handicappers in the business. What you can learn from these men can be every bit as valuable as the best college education.

I don't mean to make sports betting sound like an easy way to get rich, and I want to make it clear that many people reading this sentence should NOT consider sports betting (or serious gambling in any fashion) as a serious avocation. You should be as objective as possible when considering your own psychological qualifications. Sports betting should be addressed as a business; not as some sort of amusement park thrill ride. Be sure to read the articles on this website concerning money management and the differences between genuine pros and all the 'wanna-be's' that stalk the Internet.  Nevertheless, if you've got what it takes, it's gotta be the best profession in the world.
