Lately, I am being bored and I looking for some way to monetize my hobbies...

Anyway, being in Canada and listening to sports radio all day, I am thinking about betting on NHL games... But I don't want to turn it to another job, e.g. spending time and effort to research all the time... I guess I am looking for some basic ideas: maybe hot goalies or strong western team playing against week eastern teams?

That's my justification when I haven't had a gambling fix for a while :LOL:
LOL, I never bet on a sporting event in my life until yesterday - small win to test the platform... So far no path to monetize my other hobbies like fishing and cigar smoking :)

Thanks Mike, this looks very interesting indeed , but I bet (pun intended) it’s highly unregulated and too risky for my models...

On the whole, the sportsbetting market is less sophisticated then the financial markets - i.e. the average competence/skill level is lower in the sports market. However it is still highly competitive and liquidity is often low except for the major sports such as football(meaning soccer), cricket, tennis and horses.

They say keep out of 2 party bets as one party can throw the match e.g. tennis, snooker, boxing etc.
Huge sums are gambled by dodgy groups. They can put in the fix and might.

Betting and gambling seems attractive so some losses while other wins. So is the case with forex trading, which is slightly different than gambling because it requires analytics and market research before investing. Anyhow do whatever you do but take risks to that extent which you can afford to loose.
