FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DURHAM, NC – April 12, 2010 – Releasing its new book, “Sports Investing: Profiting from Point Spreads,” to coincide with the start of the baseball season helped SportsInsights achieve a top sales ranking at Amazon on April 11, 2010. Author Dan Fabrizio, says the book, “hit # 1 in its category ‘Sports < Gambling,’ and uses an academic and statistical approach to finding value in the sports marketplace.”
Public sentiment and betting activity cause the sports marketplace to act irrationally. The massive flow of public wagers forces betting lines to fluctuate like an inefficient market. The book studies point spreads, betting line movement, public betting percentages, money management, statistics, and more. In particular, the book develops contrarian investing ideas such as “Betting Against the Public” and “Smart Money” to the sports marketplace.
Major League Baseball Research
In conjunction with the release of the new book, SportsInsights is pleased to publish an update to its annual MLB “betting against the public” research article. SportsInsights collects sports marketplace data from online sportsbooks and compiles proprietary statistics such as “public betting percentages” to analyze public opinion.
