Sport is made for betting is one of the longest running sports betting blogs on the internet. It’s also one of the most popular and its author, Australian Scott Ferguson is an expert on his chosen subject. Scott was the head of Betfair Education only a few years ago and there’s little about sports betting that he doesn’t know. He has his finger firmly on the sports and betting industry pulse and his blog is the number one source for betting related news. He’s occasionally drafted in for an appearance on Sky Sports when there’s match fixing or corruption issues to be discussed.
Online since 2008 Sport is made for betting has lots of informative betting related content in its archives and these days also covers major race meetings and sporting events via guest blogger previews. If you are a keen racing blogger in particular get in touch with him. You’ll have exposure to hundreds, potentially thousands of readers and it’s a great place to showcase your writing talents.
Scott’s specialist sports are Racing, Tennis and Cricket but he appreciates the fact that gaining an edge is much easier on less popular markets and champions a diverse range of sports such as biathlon, which is basically Skiing and shooting combined. He notes that Biathlon is particularly good for trading because “So much depends on the shooting, a biathlete can go from 1.5 favourite to 400 outsider with a couple of missed shots.”
Popular posts from Sport is made for betting include info about Scott’s favourite, ‘lay the field’ strategy and one which also gives some excellent advice about how to profit from the next manager markets found in the Betfair specials section. These markets are often subject to rumour and manipulation and Scott gives some excellent advice for taking advantage of this. It’s an enjoyable market to trade if you don’t mind having your money tied up for a little while. Read the post about this here: http://www.sportismadeforbetting.com/p/next-manager-markets.html
Scott’s also runs a WTA tennis competition where you select your dream team by picking a player from each of the 10 groups of players with the aim of finding the highest ranking player within that group. The competition starts at the beginning of each tennis season and you can find the website for this here: http://www.wtatenniscomp.com
You can follow Scott under the @Borisranting twitter handle (Apparently useful tennis player and had red locks like Boris Becker back in the day). He loves his beer and can recommend some crackers. Scott engages with all sorts of people on twitter from the shrewd bettors/traders and renowned journalist to newb punters looking for help. So make sure you’re following him and get reading his superb blog Sport is made for betting if you don’t already.
