Is sports betting investing or gambling?
To put it bluntly, if you look at it as gambling, you will never be able to use it as a platform to generate long-term wealth.
Successful sports betting should be treated as an investment strategy.
For much of this article, you won’t hear us refer to it as ‘sports betting’ or ‘sports gambling’.
We see it as a way to create an edge over the bookmakers, getting value from the investments (they’re not bets) and enjoying the wealth generated from 200% ROI a year.
Yes, that’s right – 200% ROI a year!
This guide is going to explain how we have done exactly this and show you the basic principles of sports investing so that you can do the same.
Real Sports Investing
Here’s a question for you:
Well, that’s precisely what our strategies can do to your net worth.
Through proper bankroll management, we can turn a starting balance of $10,000 into over $1m in 60 months.
But to most people, this investment strategy takes ‘too long’ because of the need for instant gratification.
In other words:
They are not interested if it’s not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme.
If you have had experience trading with stocks and shares, forex etc, some of these principles may seem familiar to you.
It is only now that someone has thought about transferring this knowledge into the sports investing industry.
Sports Investing Bankroll
We base our strategy on a starting bankroll of $10,000.
You can still make 200% ROI a year if you haven’t got access to funds of this size, but it’ll take longer to get to $1m.
If that means, for the time being, you must work longer hours at your job then so be it.
For those of you that are serious about making smart sports investments, this must be your priority.
We also operate by investing 1 unit per investment, where 1 unit equates to 1% of your bankroll.
So, for a bankroll of $10,000, 1 unit = $100.
As the bankroll increases each month, these unit sizes will increase to a point where eventually, you’ll be investing $10,000 per event.
Sensible bankroll management will keep your balance growing at a controllable rate while minimizing the impact of any losses.
Selecting Your Investment
This is the most crucial part of the entire process.
You will need to be disciplined and stick to becoming an expert in a maximum of 2 particular sports/markets etc.
This could be that you only invest on over/under markets, sticking to a certain team or a mixture of the two to create a specific niche.
The point is that once you’ve selected your investment vehicle, you stick with it.
The reason for this is because a sporting season only lasts for x number of months at a time.
Using the NHL as an example, the season starts in October and the last game of the playoffs is in June.
This creates a 4-month layoff where, if you stuck to one sport, you won’t make any additional money, so it helps to become an expert in a sport that is active over the first’s off-season.
Once you have selected your investments, it’s time to go digging for information.
You must dive deep into the data to create a strategy and gain edge over the bookies.

Sports investing is about making money.
The best way to make money is to make value bets.
The key to value is that you don’t have to bet on the teams that win the most.
In fact, you would end up losing money in the long run if you took this approach.
No matter if it’s in the NHL, MLB, NBA or any other league, the better teams will be marked as favorites.
As such, the value in betting on them suffers as bookmakers expect them to win.
In sports investing, a team’s value is reflected by their given odds.
Sportsbooks assign their odds based on public perception and their own calculations.
The inefficiencies in markets occur when the sportsbook incorrectly calculates the odds.
We’ve covered value bets in great detail in another post, so click below to learn more about them.

So now that’s all been covered, here’s what you can expect from the Ghost Betting Premium sports investing service.
We take everything above into account to generate a high ROI.
You won’t find returns like this from traditional investment vehicles like shares, forex and real estate.
Sports Investing Step 1 – Growth
It’s important that you keep all your winnings in your sports investing pot.
Even when you start making good money, don’t take anything out during the first year.
All profits will be invested in making more investments.
This is what gets the bankroll growing and enables you to increase unit sizes.
This is also a reason why you should not be borrowing money to fund the investments – it’s unlikely the banks will be willing to wait this long before you start paying them back.
So, with this in mind, a 200% ROI in the first year requires making the following amount per month.
This only requires making 10% ROI a month but by the end of the year, you will have more than tripled your starting bankroll!
Step 1 is the growth phase, but it is also during this time that you are doing work behind the scenes.
Continue the research and find the information to make the right investments.
Sports Investing Step 2 – Big Profits
Your patience will have paid off at this point; if you started investing with $10,000 you have over $30k in your bankroll.
This is more than some people make a year from their jobs, grinding 9-5 every day.
We know what we would prefer to be doing…
The beauty of this strategy is that the only scaling you need to ‘worry’ about is increasing your unit sizes each month, so it stays at 1% of your bankroll.
Maintaining 200% ROI a year will keep you on track to hit $1m within 5 years, without ever going over using 1% of your bankroll per investment.
Here is what it looks like to make 200% ROI in the second year of sports investing:
Your starting bankroll will have increased almost 10x from our strategy.
You will have made a very large sum of money from smart sports investments.
It’s after this point that you can think about taking some of your money out.
You will be rewarded for your patience while keeping the bankroll healthy.
2 years ago, would you have thought you could be in a position that you can make $1,000 investments on sports?
…but we have shown it can be done.
You’re not done yet though; after all, we are only 2 years in, meaning there is still plenty of money to be made from sports investing.
The learning process never stops.

Sports Investing Step 3 – Making A Living
Once you reach Step 3, you’ll probably be thinking why you continue to work at your job while you see your investment fund grow and grow.
And you’d be right.
Why are you still working?
You’re likely making a lot more money from investing than you are from your job.
After 2 years of disciplined bankroll management, you’ll have proven that you are capable of handling large amounts of money.
Start withdrawing a manageable amount a month to start with, say around $2,000.
This will cover all your monthly expenses, with extra to enjoy.
All the while, your bankroll continues to grow and grow because you are still investing just 1% per investment.
Here is what a 200% ROI a year investment looks like after 3 years while withdrawing $2,000 a month to live off:
You’d be at over $250,000 in profit – and that’s with taking out $2k every month!
You could even withdraw less than that just to keep yourself disciplined and not over-spend.
As what we’ve been stressing throughout this post, you’ll achieve this milestone through good bankroll management and increasing your unit sizes appropriately.
Sports Investing Step 4 – Big Money
After reaching the fourth year of trading using our system, you’ll be an expert in sports investing.
It’s at this point that you can really start reaping the rewards.
Step 4 will see you start using unit sizes of around $2,000.
Again, think back to your starting bankroll at Month 0…
You could only afford to invest $100 per event at the time.
Now, you’re using 20% of your starting bankroll for EVERY trade.
Stick to the same strategies that we have taught you and you’ll have no problem using these larger sums.
While you’re here, why not enjoy the benefits and start withdrawing more a month?
Remember to treat this whole process as a business though, so we suggest withdrawing $3,000 a month.
Putting this into perspective, this is the same as having a $36,000 a year job, but with a business making a hell of a lot more.
Here is what 200% ROI a year looks like at Step 4:
At this point, you are almost a millionaire now and considered ‘rich’ by most people.
You now have the freedom that 99% of the population want but will never take action to achieve it.
You’re in that 1% and look where are compared to those around you.
Sports Investing Step 5 – The Rest Of Your Life
This is it.
When you reach Step 5, you’ll become a millionaire.
In fact, you’ll become a multimillionaire.
By the end of Step 5, your sports investment fund will reach not $1m but $2m.
You already know what we’re going to say about bankroll management, unit sizes etc; you’ll be so used to it, it’ll be second nature.
Hence, in Step 5, it’s time to withdraw $10,000 a month out of the investment fund.
Here is what 200% ROI a year with the Ghost Betting Premium system looks like after the fifth year.
Let’s take a moment to compare where you started to where you are now.
At Month 0:
And now at Month 60:
In 5 years, you’ve gone from investing $100 per trade to a bankroll worth over $2m, using $20,000 per investment.
Quite the change in circumstances.
But why stop here?
You’ve got the money, drive, discipline and consistency to keep this going for the rest of your life and create real wealth.
Just so you can see, here is what happens in year 6:
You can make an extra $3m while extracting $600,000 a year for your own personal use.
However, we recommend that you never withdraw more than $50,000 a month.
Just do not stop investing.
This is sports investing done right: long-term profitability through consistent, value bets.
Stick to the Ghost Betting strategy and you can be a full-time sports investor for life.
