Abstract and Keywords
The objective of this chapter is to review and extend an emerging body of research that tests theories, models, and general predictions of human behavior—most of which are rooted in psychology—while using the point spread wagering market as the setting. The bridge between behavioral psychology and sports betting is provided by the growing field of behavioral finance, a relatively new subdiscipline of behavioral economics.
