Summary

Have you seen the ads? Who hasn’t, right? How did it all happen? Is DFS gambling? Is it legal? And what’s next for this industry under attack?

These are just some of the questions answered by award-winning author Bill Ordine as he traces the background of the curious federal law that opened the door for the billion-dollar play-for-money sports-contest industry. Who was behind the pivotal carve-out? How did daily fantasy rise so quickly? And where is it likely to land now that the DFS genie is out of the bottle?

More important, Fantasy Sports, Real Money shows you how to get into the game and compete, with strategies the pros use and case studies from players who’ve won millions.

This is the first DFS book to cover football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and even golf, with game plans for setting lineups, maximizing value within the salary cap, finding pricing inefficiencies, playing against (or avoiding) experts, and identifying overlays, as well as many other angles being used right now to get the money in this provocative sports-betting offshoot.
