My favorite chapters are the ones on NFL season wins, NFL halftime bets, and MLB first-half bets.
The author is the same King Yao who wrote Weighing the Odds in Hold'em Poker. He uses the same style: explain all the logic and include all the details.
King has been working intensively on sports betting for several years. He initially posted on SharpSportsBetting.com as Rick Peterman during the years when he was intending to use that handle as a pen name, but I convinced him that King Yao, his real name, was too good to be replaced by a pen name. So if you want to check out his post history on SharpSportsBetting.com, search for Rick Peterman as well as King Yao.
The manufacturer is about a week behind schedule in the production of King Yao's Weighing the Odds in Sports Betting. So it looks like we will be mailing books books to early purchasers around 23 July, instead of 16 July.
