Re: sports betting vs poker how do the top earners compare?

Big syndicates allocating 1% of BR per play?this is the betting market not
Down Jones or Nikkei

25% for the Gnome sounds ridiculous,what would the gnome do precisely?
Over 15% must have some skin in the game

Thanks for the positive feedback, how do you think those numbers would be best improved.

How many bets would pinny offer weekly where you can get $50k down? And how many of those are profitable

Gettin 1% edge where you can bet $50k...... what’s ridiculous?? 1% too high or too low?

I pay my gnomes between 15-50% depending on how much cash they have involved. I’ve you get gnomes placing cash bets, there would be a lot of effort involved, 25% is fair enough

Mid-year they cut limits on totals by half for many many leagues including all college sports. They also raised vig on a lot of leagues some to as high as -115 although those are very niche/obscure leagues. I don't know what the limits were 5 years ago. Aussie Rules and NRL used to be 30k/5k near kick, now it is 6k/500, presumably bc they are leaving/left Australia.

Soccer there are 5-6 asian books that take huge action. I had an account with a couple of them back in the day, all five figure limits for division 2 major UEFA leagues near kick and high five/low six for biggest leagues.

You must have a credit account or something because college football limits haven't changed in years and basketball though lower than last year's went to, is about the same as the last five years too.

The top earner in sports betting is George Mahaven.
