Every bet he makes is entirely within his discretion and he does so using licensed sports betting websites.
The purpose of the Fund is to pool money into one fund (although there may be multiple funds running at the same time) by a number of participants who follow Money Man and his sports betting tips. Money Man is by no means a professional in betting on sports but he is passionate about it, hence the reason he does this in his spare time. This started as a means to help his followers understand sports betting better and has built up quite a keen and interested audience following 2 profit-making funds.
