Gaming the Game

Must Read Sports Betting Book


Get it at Amazon

If you've ever wanted to know how big time sports betting works, Gaming the Game is the book for you. It's a look into the gambling career of the central figure in the NBA betting scandal, Jimmy "Baba" or "Sheep" Battista. The book does much more than cover his involvement with NBA referee Tim Donaghy and how the NBA betting scandal came about.

The book covers Battista's betting career from the beginning and takes you through the pre internet days of sportsbetting and details how professional gamblers gained an edge. It covers the early internet days and runs right through to the present time and includes Sheep's escapades as a mover and bookmaker, both locally in the Philadelphia area as well as offshore in Curacao.

The book includes some of the most colorful and well known names in the sports betting business. Names like "Tiger", for example, a very well known professional gambler from the Philly area. Also included is "The Computer", another very well known pro (perhaps THE most well known). Another name many have heard is "The Chinaman".

In some instances, names have been changed. For example, there's a very well known sportsbook mentioned that goes by the name "Paramount" in the book, as well as gentleman that runs a major offshore book and is known in the book as "Zorba the Greek". Many in the industry will know right away who these individuals are.

If you've ever been involved in this industry in any way, this is a must read. If you've ever wondered how much money the real pro's wager, and what's involved in betting as a pro, this is a must read. If you've ever wondered what the REAL story was behind Tim Donaghy and the NBA betting scandal, this is a must read.

Very few books have ever been written about the real world of big time sports betting. In fact, I can only think of 3 others. But this one is perhaps the best of them all. It holds nothing back and pulls no punches. If you're interested in sports betting, you won't be able to put this one down.
