Types of Sportsbooks and the Right
Both indirectly and directly I have been refused action by dozens and probably hundreds of sportsbooks in my lifetime. I believe this is how it is for anybody who has made any good quantity of money in sports betting.
I don’t begrudge the majority of these books and frankly feel lucky that I was actually even paid by some of them. I’m not too proud to admit that most of what I overcome these novels on were things which are one of the simplest to overcome in sports betting – props, miniature sports, and ancient traces in medium-sized sports where everything goes 2 points or equal. For the significant stuff I bet in the typical major books that are comfortable booking the action, and have no trouble getting down to the day although I have been limited to a degree at a few, unfortunately in the few bigger sports that I love.
In my opinion, sportsbooks don’t have any type of obligation that is ethical to take a bet unregulated offshore sportsbooks. With regulated sportsbooks there is a little more of a debate to be made, but even regulated sportsbooks are quasi-private businesses that exist to make money, and can not be expected to have a beating from sharps and do nothing about it. And it’s a really hard industry in which to make any money, especially nowadays; if you look at the earnings reports of the major regulated books, they’re not too lucrative. Most make a pathetic percentage of their win after paying for taxes, marketing, and expenditures, and a few actually eliminate money.
