Subtitled "An Underdog's Tale of Life, Gambling and Sharp Sports Betting" Hagerty says "I will teach you how to win more bets, but first a story...I was hungover. I had spent the previous night in an Italian bar trying to convince naïve girls that I was Jason Sehorn of the New York Giants. This was my move. It wasn’t particularly effective, but it was the best I had…The next morning I found myself on a train going from Bologna to Rome. I was young, and this would be my first visit to the ancient city. As luck would have it, I was seated next to Evelyn O'Reilly. Evelyn was a stunning foreign exchange student from Dublin, and we hit if off. We hit if off so well that when she got to her stop in Florence she invited me to join her for the weekend. In a moment of sheer madness, I politely declined. I had the next few hours to contemplate what had just happened, and I became paralyzed by my own stupidity. What the hell was wrong with me? I had an amazing opportunity, but I was too damn dumb to realize it. This exquisite creature exited my life forever, only to revisit every now and again as a memory...".
This same scenario plays out EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND of the football season. Beautiful opportunities are out there, but most bettors can't see them. They aren't trained on what to look for, and when they finally do discover a gem, they are too scared to act.

Hagerty's strategy of situational betting in college and pro football is a time-tested method for beating the sportsbook. He highlights over twenty situational opportunities where the bettor will gain an advantage over the house.
