Sports Bettors: Who Are They?

Admittedly, I've never considered what skills (if any) exist to successfully bid on both professional and amateur sporting events. What are the distinctions between chance and skill when betting on the outcome of, say, a hockey game?

It's an interesting read, and one that opens discussions on an important field of research. Check out Sports Bettors: A Systematic Review for a deeper look!
