What is an Advantaged Player?
The Advantaged Player (or Advantage Player) is one who exploits a weakness in the mechanics of speculating to gain an edge over games of chance. Typically, this is associated with table games at casinos. As it applies to the sports investor, he is one that exploits the procedural and structural vulnerability of odds making to guarantee a long-term edge on his bookmaker.
Fortunately for bookmakers, the vast majority of players perceive sports betting as a form of entertainment and seek value in short term results. Your book knows that this mindset is a money-losing proposition in the long run and you are set up to lose from the time you walk in.
For 99% of the population, the concepts of advantaged play are too boring and the discipline to adhere to strict measures of money management is too difficult to turn sports investing into a profitable investment.
