Highlights innovative modeling procedures as a means of increasing the reliability of betting on game outcomes

Combining his knowledge of time series modeling with his interests in sports and sports gambling markets, author William Mallios reveals his publication, “Sports Metric Forecasting” (published by Xlibris). The book highlights innovative modeling procedures as a means of increasing the reliability of betting on game outcomes.

Throughout the sports world, forecasts of game outcomes are commonplace in the news media. The forecasting procedure in this book enhances such forecasting through analyses of sport’s “big data.” According to Mallios, there is a natural propensity for people to gamble and for sports enthusiasts to bet on game outcomes. He analyzes the major league baseball, basketball and football teams that comprise America's favorite pastimes and make possible the multi-billion dollar sports gambling markets, covering the period from 1990s to the present. His analyses are based on adaptive drift modeling procedures that can benefit the participants in the fantasy sports and sports gambling markets, modeling analysts of “sports big data bases and coaches/managers employing statistical analyses in devising game strategies.

“Sports Metric Forecasting” paves the way for readers to beat the sports gambling markets in the absence of insider information. It is only a matter of innovative mathematical modeling.
