Sports Betting And The Rise Of DraftKings

Sports betting in the U.S. is booming. During the 2021 NFL season an estimated 45 million Americans are expected to wager at least billion. Since a 2018 Supreme Court ruling, sports betting is now legal in more than 30 states.

A flood of new customers eager for risk and excitement has made DraftKings one of the nation’s biggest sportsbooks. In the third quarter of 2021 DraftKings revenue rose 60% from the year prior to 3 million. During that same period with mobile betting launching in several states the number of its monthly unique paying customers rose 31% to 1.3 million.

And the online sports betting and gaming industry in the U.S. is just starting to grow. As of 2021 only 4% of gross gaming revenue in the U.S. was generated online compared with 45% in a more mature market like the UK. The online sports betting market in the U.S. is expected to be worth nearly billion by 2033.

So what does the future look like for legal sports betting in America and what challenges lie ahead for sports betting providers like BetMGM, FanDuel and DraftKings?

Former punter pioneers sports betting hedge fund · Brendan Poots

EP 105: How a former punter pioneered a premier sports betting hedge fund – Brendan Poots

Brendan’s the founder of sports betting hedge fund, The Priomha Group, who mainly bet on football, cricket, golf and also horse racing and tennis.

Priomha setup shop in Melbourne (Australia) in 2010, and more recently, have expanded with a second location in Gibraltar (Europe). From inception up to the release of this episode, Priomha’s Cloney fund has returned a little over 220%.

From listening to our discussion, you’ll gain great insight to how Brendan runs his operation—from getting investors to buy in, to controlling risk and minimizing the volatility of returns, and how the fund makes money trading sports games.

    I like how they blame athletes "being competitive" for being susceptible gambling and not that MOST (certainly not all) but MOST athletes come from backgrounds of poverty and low education

    But yeah, keep blaming they are just TOO competitive to handle money! HAH!

    That’s a total bs. Gambling is gambling and the only way for a gambling company to make a profit is to win the bet I the long run. So the player will always lose money. This report is trying so hard to sugarcoat the gambling industry.

    As an american, with a background in investing, business, gambling but 0% knowledge of sports, i found this very insightful. I hope to start my own stream of income as a sports wagerist. (i don't want to use the term betting). I like how he says trade instead of bet.
