Your Daily Cartoon: Old-school gamblers vs new-school ones

By

Gambling is now legal in a few states, with more to follow in the future. And it’s only a matter of time until it’s legal at the federal level, like in many other countries across the world.

But it’s not like sports fans haven’t been getting action down over the years. Bookies have long been popular in the United States, with old-school bettors finding a way to wager on contests. Generally, though, those guys bet by feel, while new-school handicappers use systems, spreadsheets, metrics, analytics, trends and many other tools. That’s what this cartoon focuses on.
