Sports Wagering Investment

 

The Start of Something Big

In May 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court repealed the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992. The Act was a federal ban on sports wagering. Since it’s removal, states have now come up with their own rules for sports wagering. In August 2018 New Jersey became the first state to allow retail and mobile sports wagering. Others followed the Garden State’s lead. West Virginia was next to okay online sports wagering. Indiana has since signed off on online and app wagering. In other states, sports bettors can place wagers in casinos or with retail sports books. At the moment,20 states have legal, regulated sports wagering industries, according to the “Legal Sports Report”.

Sports wagering is already a sizable industry. The “Legal Sports Report” estimated in October 2022 that Americans will have put down more than $200 billion in legal sports wagers from June 2018 through October 2022. It was a big year for sports wagering in 2019 as nine more states legalized the activity, bringing the total number of states with legal sports wagering to 20. As neighboring Ohio states post increasing sports wagering revenue, pressure builds for lawmakers to provide a regulated environment to bet on sports and capture money that could be put toward education or other programs. By the end of 2022, more than half of the US states could have sports wagering laws on the books.

 

Even the term “sports wagering” has evolved. Back in 1990 people associated sports wagering with NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and College Football and Basketball.  As generations change so do our national pastimes, now legalized sports wagering includes fantasy sports and wagering on people and teams that compete in the video gaming industry. Who would've thought you could wager on a person playing against another in Pac Man? No one ever imagined back in 1990 you could pick a list of NFL players from any team to score points and that list of various players could win you Millions. As sports wagering becomes legal in most states, gone are the days of walking into a casino to place a bet. Now you can walk into a BW3, have BBQ wings, a Coke and pull out your smartphone and wager on the BW3 app! Today we have brick and mortar FanDuel establishments along with online apps from national chains.

In 2019, New Jersey had overtaken Nevada for sports wagering primacy, bettors have wagered nearly $3.8 billion since bookmaking was legalized 2018, and 85% of the wagers are now placed online. In Pennsylvania, online sports wagering started only at the end of May 2019, but by August, it already accounted for 76% of the $109 million wagered. Sports bars and restaurants want to capture some of those mobile wagering customers before they go home, turn on the television, and open up their sports wagering apps.

 

Gambling

When you hear or see the word GAMBLING, what terms, visions or feelings do you associate with that word?


  • Vegas Baby!


  • Bet (a sum of money) on a game of chance. 


  • "He was gambling every penny he had on the spin of a wheel”


  • “She buys daily lottery tickets in hopes of winning millions”.


  • Playing games of chance for money


  • Making a bet on the Super Bowl because I love the Chiefs.


  • Going “ALL IN” with a Full-House


  • To take risky action in the hope of a desired result.


  • He has an addiction and loses all his money wagering


  • I have no control over the outcome

  • It’s a lot of risk, but the money is great

The word gambling has always been thought of as a dirty foul word. In fact almost every person associated with day to day sports wagering must be; a degenerate, associated with the mob or having an addiction. About the only acceptable time to gamble was at big sporting events (ie. Kentucky Derby, the Super Bowl, World Series..etc) Yes, it’s ok to gamble on these big events, but what if you wanted to do it every day? You could, but don’t let anyone know!  Times have changed and by 2025 almost every state will have sports wagering and fantasy sports wagering LEGAL and available online.

Stock Market
When you hear or see the word STOCK MARKET, what terms, visions or feelings do you associate with that word?

  • "He plans to invest in the stock market"

  • Great earnings per share (EPS)

  • Getting the stock at Market value

  • Only invest in Blue Chip Stocks

  • Buy on the Bear Market

  • Sell on the Bull Market.

  • Buy low sell high

  • He lost it all in the crash

Trade in stock markets means the transfer (in exchange for money) of a stock or security from a seller to a buyer. This requires both parties to agree on a price. A stock market, equity market or share market is the aggregation of buyers and sellers (a loose network of economic transactions, not a physical facility or discrete entity) of stocks (also called shares), which represent ownership claims on businesses. Investment in the stock market is most often done via stock brokerages and electronic trading platforms. Investment is usually made with an investment strategy in mind. I think of making money in the stock market as a long term investment, it’s a retirement fund, and if things go well you start with $1,000 and grow it up to $225,000 after 20 years.  A perfect example of this is Amazon Stock, in October of 2001, Amazon stock was $7.00 per share. If in October of 2001 you had purchased $1,000 worth of Amazon stock (143 shares)  today those shares would be worth  $2,000 per share and those 143 shares are now worth $286K. Essentially, it is entirely possible to grow $1,000 into $225K in 20-years.

 

Most people have this perception that you need a great deal of money to make money, while there is some truth to that perception the reality is, it takes vision and patients to make wise investments in the stock market. Here is the true reality of investing in the stock market: those shares of Amazon only have value if you cash them in. When do you cash the stock in? Today the 143 shares are worth $286K, in a month from now they may be worth only $186K. When I worked for the Department of Defense from 2006 -2012 I put my hard earned money into a 401K. Every two-weeks I got a paycheck and I contributed the max of $500 and my employer matched it. In 5-years I had $60,000 or so I thought. Mathematically it equaled $60,000 but since I had my money invested in A, B, C and G funds (all  in different areas) I lost money, there was a huge market crash between 2008 - 2011. I ended up with about $42,000. Which is still $12,000 more than I would have if Uncle Sam didn’t decide to match my contributions. To me, I thought this was the best I could do, yet, I knew, if I only had connections to a financial advisor,  I may not have lost money but could have made so much more.

Is The Stock Market Gambling?

Is the stock market gambling? Should people consider trading in the stock market to be a form of gambling? The answers to these questions are unequivocally – YES! Investing in the stock market is gambling, and novice investors should think of it in that way

To gain an advantage and earn a profit on your stock trading, investors must try to gauge the company and its profitability. Incorrectly gauging profitability in the short and, more importantly, over the long term is why stock prices fluctuate on the stock exchanges and people lose their money. The profit outlook for business is always changing, and investors are using stock charts, news, rumors, company metrics, and fundamental analysis to estimate the future earnings of a company and subsequently the value of its stock in the future. Any person not analyzing data, using metrics, and researching companies will NEVER make money buying and selling stock on a regular basis.

Trying to determine the value of a company’s stock price and where it’s going in the future isn’t easy. There are a lot of different variables that move the short-term price of a company’s stock. Over the long term, a company’s stock is the present value of all profits that the company will make. In the short term, a company’s share price is a lot more volatile. A company can trade shares even without profits because investors think that the company will have future earnings. But, eventually, a company’s stock price will show the true value of the company.

Both investing and sports wagering (SW) involve risk. You have to risk capital in order to gain value in both the stock market and in sports wagering. It is the risk that investors and SW’s take on that gives them the right to earn more than they wagered. Both investors and SW’s must know how much risk they can tolerate. Every investor and SW’s have a certain risk tolerance (what a person is willing to lose) before you start investing or sports wagering. 


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? 
Sports Wagering vs. Stock Market. 

Remember the Amazon stock price that sold for $7 share in October of 2001 and is now valued at $2,000 per share. The key word here is “VALUED”. For you to profit, you need to sell the shares you purchased. In the stock market you only have assumed value based on that precise minute of evaluation.

 

In Sports Wagering using a very low risk option with a Money Line return of -400 to -700 that same $1,000 investment would have made $286K with in six to eight years NOT 19-years of waiting on the stock market AND you would already have the cash on hand as well as still making money daily. Again, the Amazon stock price is only good if you cash in the stock, just a reminder; In September and early October 1929, Stock prices began to decline. Panic set in, and on October 24, Black Thursday, a record 12,894,650 shares were traded. Investment companies and leading bankers attempted to stabilize the market by buying up great blocks of stock, producing a moderate rally on Friday. On Monday, however, the storm broke anew, and the market went into free fall. Black Monday was followed by Black Tuesday (October 29), in which stock prices collapsed completely and 16,410,030 shares were traded on the New York Stock Exchange in a single day. Billions of dollars were lost, wiping out thousands of investors. Again, as for investing in stocks, not knowing when to stop or sell will make you vulnerable to potentially losing more than you intended. Investors can often limit their losses and get out of a trade if they start to lose money. Stock investors can establish a trading order called a stop loss with their broker or online brokerage firm to limit their losses. For example, you can place a stop loss order after purchasing shares if they reach 10% lower than the purchase price.

Time horizons are another difference between investing and sports wagering. All sports wagering is a time-based event that has a set end time or date where you find out whether you’ve won or lost. However, if you’re day trading, swing trading, or simply buying and holding your investments the investing can continue indefinitely in some cases (until you cash out). Most importantly, in the stock market, you win or lose money on paper as per your investment, in essence no money is made or lost until you cash in  Thinking of the stock market. Year after year there are consistent performers and currently after 20 years there are substantial gains.bThe same is true in NCAA Basketball. Year after year there are consistent performers.
 
BUYING A STOCK
So, if you want to make money in the stock market there are many ways to do that. The simplest form of investment is to buy shares of a company (stock). Each share has a money value and that share price can either go up, go down, split, or cease to exist. Furthermore, some company stock can be risky, the stock can aggressively go up in price, drop in price, or cease to exist within hours or days.

 

BUYING A STOCK IN SECTORS
Other ways to invest in the stock market are to invest in sectors. In the stock market, year after year there are consistent performers and those performers are in investment sectors. Investment sectors are Medical, Government, Technology, Housing, Transportation, Energy, etc. Investing in a sector means you purchase stock in companies that are all similar and in the same category. For example, you think the medical industry might perform well in the next 3-years so you purchase company stock in Johnson & Johnson, Abbott Laboratories, CVS Health and HCA HealthCare. Your hope is that as the medical sector does well and in return your investment in medical related companies will also do well. Now imagine if you will, that sports wagering is divided up into investment sectors. These sectors would be the NCAAB, NCAAFB, NFL, MLB..etc. These sports sectors all have a definite beginning and end. Within these sectors there are certain teams that perform well, win and are consistent. Also notable, are teams that are consistently losing. 


STOCK YIELDS AND RISK
Stocks can be categorized as to expected rate of return (RoR), yield and the amount of risk associated with the expected yield. These yields and risks can be categorized as low, moderate and high. Risk refers to the degree of uncertainty and/or potential financial loss inherent in an investment decision. In general, as investment risks rise, investors seek higher returns to compensate themselves for taking such risks. Every saving and investment product has different risks and returns. Additionally, a rate of return (RoR) is the net gain or loss on an investment over a specified time period, expressed as a percentage of the investment's initial cost. Gains on investments are defined as income received off the investment

The same could be said about sports wagers.  You could also categorize these wagers as value wagers, growth wagers and high yield wagers. Risk in sports wagering refers to the degree of uncertainty and/or potential of financial loss. Meaning, if you wager on a team that is 0-10 beating a 10-0 team, your rate of return on this wager might be 500% however, the risk of losing that wager may be almost 99%. So essentially you have a 1% chance to make 500% on your investment.

 

Data Driven Decision Making
This terminology is common vernacular to anyone in the business world. Decisions on marketing efforts, revenue projections, advertising, supply lines are all rooted in data mining. No guesswork, no assumptions, no hypothesis, important business decisions are made only after crunching and interpreting the available data. The same decision making model is becoming more and more evident in the sports world. “The frontier of analytics is just beginning and there is no end in sight to the potential,” says Dr. Lynn Lashbrook, Sports Management Worldwide President and Founder. “With the explosion in sports in regards to gambling, fantasy, gaming industries, and media companies, the need for sports analysts is also exploding. Analytics is a lucrative field with unlimited opportunities.” While the movie Moneyball helped make sports analytics mainstream, the reason this evaluation tool isn’t a passing fad is because the results do match the hype. Careers in research and analytics are in their boom cycle, primarily because there is the perfect mix of high demand and low supply. The same is true in the sports wagering community. For the longest time, sports wagering was only legal and available in Las Vegas. Now, the industry will be legal in about 40-states by 2025. Anyone can wager but not everyone understands the analytics. So it makes sense that people would want to make money daily and legally wagering on sports. There are people that want to take advantage of 25% to 500% return on an investment, but know nothing about the analytics of legal wagering. This is where SW&G Investments fills the void.

Most statisticians and mathematicians that work in the stock market are analysts. They look at years of trending data and attempt to forecast each company in terms of stock price patterns, volume changes, and market news/rumors regarding a particular stock. Now compare that to a dedicated wagering analyst in the legal sports wagering industry. The fact is there is no difference in analysts. Both look for trends, wagering trends represent the volume of wagers placed at a sportsbook, on one team versus another. Public wagering trends are often referred to as wagering percentages. Think of it as a direct link to what’s happening on the sportsbook side. Analysts also look at historical wagering percentage data from past to present and seasonal reports which explain in detail how to win by wagering against the public. If you are familiar with the stock market the above should've sounded eerily familiar especially if you have a broker.

SPORTS & WAGERING INVESTMENT SERVICE
We are the first Sports & Wagering Investment service in the United States. SW&G Inc. uses statistical analysis to capture low-risk money line odds in sporting events. Consumers can invest daily with SW&G Inc. using a sector investment incorporating low-risk money line odds. SW&G is capitalizing on the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 which placed a federal ban on sports betting which in May 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court repealed. Now states can come up with their own rules for sports gambling. At the moment, 20 states have legal, regulated sports betting industries. Additionally, we plan to capitalize on a growing trend which is online and 

For Example;  Let's use an NFL Football game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Green Bay Packers. If you follow the Jaguars you know they went 3-14 in 2021. Jacksonvile beat three teams. Vegas knows Jacksonville stinks and there is no way Vegas will take a wager on Green Bay to beat Jacksonville at face value, (even money). The even money wager between Green Bay vs Jacksonville Jaguars would put Vegas out of business, there would be a million people wagering on Green Bay to win and probably only 10 die hard Jacksonville Jaguars fans wagering on Jacksonville to win. To make the wagering fair for both sides Vegas devised a point spread system, and a money line system. Always remember, Vegas wants the odds in their favor.


THE MONEY LINE SYSTEM
A moneyline is a sports wager on which team will win the game. Simple as that. When you make a moneyline wager, you are betting on who will win a contest, however, Vegas has a twist as to what they pay out. Using our NFL game example, if you want to wager $100 on Green Bay to win using moneyline, The sports book will not give you $100 if Green Bay wins, instead, Vegas says the Green Bay win is only worth 12.5 cents on the dollar and therefore you get $12.50 for the $100 wager. Vegas wants you to pay a premium on a favored team if you want to make money.  The Green Bay Moneyline odds are set at  (-800). This means, if you want to make $100 on the Green Bay win, you need to bet $800 which equals about 12.5% return on your wager. Vegas will gladly take your money if you are willing to assume the implied risk of Green Bay losing. 

What about the 10 people that want to wager on the Jacksonville to win? Vegas entices Jacksonville fans by saying, hey please wager $100 on the Jacksonville  we will pay $800 if the Jacksonville  win. That’s right, Vegas will GIVE YOU $800 for a $100 wager. P.T Barum said “There’s a sucker born every minute” a +800 deal is too good for most people to pass up. Hey, invest just a little and get back a ton of money. Vegas is counting on a bunch of people to feel that way and at a gain of 800% return on your investment people are eager to take the risk.

I know what you're thinking, Green Bay gets 12.5-cents on the dollar, what a deal! When was the last time you invested $10K in the stock market and within 4-hours made 12% on my investment..well, you never have, no stock will EVER give you that.  However, Vegas will gladly pay out 12.5-cents on the dollar, in fact, there is so little invested on a -800 they will give you your 12.5-cent on the dollar back with a smile. Vegas is raking in millions on $10, $20 and $50 wagers on the premise people get paid 800 x their wager should they win. Vegas pays out +800 money lines at a .0008% rate. 

THE RIGHT WAY - THE WRONG WAY
Unless you are a sports wagering analyst, with years of experience inputting data into large databases and tabulating standard deviations and working with bell curves NEVER EVER wager on sports using point spread. The spread wager places a high amount of risk on your money. In fact, the point spread wager implies about a 55% to 65% risk of losing for a 90% return on your investment.  What I’m about to tell you concerning sports wagering investments has been around for years but not available to you and me. Vegas has been very content and happy offering -600 to -1000 money line wagers. In fact, in some games, Vegas will not offer -700 or higher favorite moneylines, however, you can always find money lines +700 to +3000. Over the past 25-years in College Basketball, home teams with a -1250 moneyline or higher have lost only 9-times. There have been 134,000 home games in the past 25-years and of those home games about 10% of those home teams per year get classified as -1200 or higher. In fact the last time a +700 or higher won on a visitors court was Stephen F Austin which beat Duke on it’s home court in 2019. In fact, +700 teams have won less than 5 games a year in the past 25 years.

Over the past 25-years, Vegas has offered moneyline wagers (-700 and higher) on favored home teams regularly and your chance of losing that wager is less than 1%. Bottom line, that's 20% to 6% return on investment with a risk of losing at 1%. Note: Never has the stock market offered that type of return daily.

Up until 3-years ago sports wagering was only legal in one-state, Nevada. The  Supreme Court changed the sports wagering laws. If you live in Ohio, none of what I said about wagering could be put in practice, why, because it was ILLEGAL! If you wanted to make a 12% - 28% return on your money prior to 2021, you would have to invest in risky stock market ventures OR fly to Vegas regularly to wager.

WHAT SW&G DOES FOR YOU
We are not a sports book, we do not take wagers and set odds. We are not a tout service, we don’t sell other people's sports wagering advice. We are an investment service that deals in daily legal sports wagering money lines. Conversely, when you invest in the stock market, your money is tied to a company stock. Your stock market investment is subject to outside forces that can either decrease, increase or stagnate your investment. Your stock market investment only has value should you decide to cash it in. Your investment in sports wagering is a one time deposit, you NEVER have to add more money. Your money is invested daily on sports teams with a money line return of 12% to 28% AND that have a 2-percent chance of losing. You can request weekly payouts on on everything you acquired through the 7-days above your original investment. OR you can withdraw the entire amount. Remember, the account is YOURS. Most people do the following, for example, if you invest $1,000 and in 7-days your account makes $125, they withdraw the $125. Some people like to always reset back to the original amount invested weekly. Bottom line,  You should never have to invest more, the first deposit will suffice.  

Want to Join?

 

SW&G is a sports betting fund providing an alternative asset class for investors trading on the sports betting market, which is immune to both recessions & market crashes. SW&G Sports Fund is publicly available sports betting fund. The fund is designed to ensure monthly & quarterly profits for investors. Investing can be accomplished through money via PayPal, bank transfer or Cash App minimum investment of $500.

 

 

Initial costs and fees
We have a recurring weekly fee for our service of $29. *The Maximum investment allowed is $1,000. This is due to State and Federal tax laws on WG-2 Gambling wagers earnings and Capital Gains tax laws on investments. 

 

Account closings
There are no restrictions or penalties incurred to close your account. You can close your account at any time.

Step by Step

Who can invest? How to invest? How much is needed to Invest?
While we propose that SW&G Investments is for everyone, there are limitations. Most State & Federal laws prohibit anyone from engaging in sports wagering if under 21, SW&G prefers all clients be 21 or over

Due to State and Federal taxes on winning wager amounts, SW&G will NEVER exceed the wager amount for a single winning wager that would incur immediate deductions from the IRS that would incur a W2-G. The IRS classifies all gambling winnings as taxable income. It is solely the client's responsibility to file taxes on any or all income made.

A person must begin an account with a minimum of $100. 

 

HOW IT’S DONE
So what makes SW&G different then anyone just going online or to a casino and wagering on sports? SW&G clients are not allowing us to gamble with their money. Investing with SW&G is more like using a Stock Broker. Like Stock Brokers that manage clients investments, SW&G analysts know the best wager for the money. SW&G is managing a portfolio of sports investments and controls the risks of wagering. The bottomline, SW&G uses analytics to track safe and secure money line investment opportunities that turn small amounts of capital into safe returns on investment. 

THE SW&G PROCESS
SW&G selects various money line wagers that equate to 12-28% return. All money line wagers are backchecked to have limited risk and have less than a 2% chance of losing. Next we calculate the amount needed or required to make a 12% to 28% return on investment. Secondly, we assess the risk of the IRS classifying the single wager as a potential WG-2 form. Thirdly, we assign money line offerings to your account. Once there is a resolution with the wager and the wager wins, the funds from that wager are visibly available in YOUR account. 

 

This process is repeated daily, there can be between 0 to 20 transactions per day depending on the clients funds in the account.  We never exhaust the full amount of funds in the clients account. SW&G only uses half of the clients funds in the account for transactions. 

So the $29 per week is the cost to play?
First, you select the weekly plan you want or multiple plans. You are purchasing weekly plans and it is a recurring charge to your Debt or Credit Card until you choose to close the SW&G account. You are paying for a service and that service is professional analytical analysis.


I’m not sure what this really is. Seems like I would have to send money to you and you make the wagers? Is that correct?


No, first you need to start an account with an online sportsbook. Note: Sports wagering must be legal in your state and the sportsbook must be a recognised and reputable legal online sportsbook. All your deposits are made with them. Once you establish an account, our service will select moneyline games that have less than a 2% chance of losing. We make selections daily. In order for SW&G to make those transactions we need access to your account. SW&G must receive access to placing transactions, we CAN NOT transfer or withdraw any funds. Only you have access to funds AND only you can close your account at any time. You will be able to see all transactions placed AND since this is your account, you can cancel all single wagers prior to a contest starting.

Again, we charge weekly recurring fees. There are no administration fees associated with using our analytical services. SW&G, is not a sportsbook, we do not take wagers or set odds. We are not a tout service, we don’t sell other people's sports betting advice. SW&G is an investment service that deals in daily legal sports money lines. SW&G Inc. uses statistical analysis to capture low-risk money line odds in sporting events.
