is there much of a difference between sports betting and putting money into the stock market?

The people here will say yes, but the reality is no, especially if you're working with derivatives.

Both are moronic and a waste of resources.

Yes.

>>965184
the stock market involves companies that operate on a large scale and thus short term fluctuations in performance among individual employees and branches cancel each other making the progress of a company more predictable, if you do your research

Yes. That's why I bought stock in the Detroit Lions. Also the same as buttcoin.

as far as say trading is concerned then not really - you can trade the price movements in a betting market just as you can trade the price movements in an equities market

there is obviously a difference between buying a stock and placing a bet that you'll hold till the end of the event you're betting on... betting on a sports event is probably closer to buying a call option and holding to expiry (or at least fixed odds betting is albeit the return if you 'win' isn't fixed in the case of the call option). Spread betting is closer to buying a futures contract.

you'll probably find more inefficiencies in sports betting markets than in equities markets

Yes, you can do much better sports betting. I win at a 55-60% rate. In a few years I'll be pretty rich. There are many more inefficiencies in the sports market than the stock market.

> putting money into the market
almost gauranteed to make money if you play for long enough

> putting money into gambling
almost gauranteed to lose money if you play for long enough
>>
Yes. You bet and your team loses that money is gone. If I buy a stock and the market moves against me I can still sell at a loss as long as I'm not a dumbass and hold hoping it goes back up. Also dividends.

If you get profit at lesser rate with the stock trading, you're doing it SERIOUSLY wrong.

Betting is basically the highest-risk investment possible

So no it's not much different
