Job brief
We reckon there are three careers ideally suited for sports trading – actuary, financial trader and professional gamers. If one of this trio is your dream career or your current day job, you have a head-start in turning a profit as a part-time punter, the only real difference is the context… these professions are explicitly focused on analysing and managing risk and are reasonably obvious breeding grounds for successful sports traders.

In a more general sense what we are talking about however, is a mindset that is suited to rational decision-making under conditions of uncertainty. Traders can operate in many spheres, but in each their objective is the same, to buy and sell profitably. This is of course what sports trading is fundamentally all about; buying and selling odds. Sports Traders compile and analyse statistics on sporting events, calculate the underlying risk or probability, and then add a margin (premium) in order to make a profit.

So, if you are an aspiring actuary, financial trader looking for a new asset class to invest in, or a gamer, you shouldn’t find sports trading far from your dream career or your regular day job. Equally, if you are an aspiring trader looking for a job that complements and improves your trading acumen you might want to think about a career change.
