Over the years, SportsInsights.com has been a leader in the sports information industry. SportsInsights is a pioneer in academic and analytical approaches in its efforts to drive the sports betting world away from the stigma of gambling — into the more businesslike activity of investing in a sports marketplace (similar to the financial marketplace). This push towards a more legitimate activity has gained traction, with the Wall Street Journal and ESPN recently highlighting SportsInsights’ research and methods. Here, we discuss Sports Investing — and why we hope you will join the push towards profitable “sports investing.”
What is Sports Investing?
“Sports investing” is an academic approach to the sports betting marketplace. SportsInsights uses data — and studies sports marketplace indicators — in an attempt to determine value in point spreads and moneylines. SportsInsights collects sports marketplace data such as point spreads and moneylines, line movement, and betting percentages. Analysts at SportsInsights use this data to study value in the sports betting marketplace. In particular, SportsInsights studies:
These methods have proven to achieve positive and measurable results in the sports marketplace over the years. These results are based on SportsInsights’ historical database — which covers almost a decade’s worth of data across all the major U.S. sports and includes SportsInsights’ proprietary betting percentages. This indicator of public opinion, based on actual bets, backs SportsInsights’ concepts of contrarian value and cannot be found anywhere else.
Sports Investing Adds Value
The methods pioneered by SportsInsights add value to just about every handicapping method. They can also be used as a stand-alone approach to invest in the sports marketplace. SportsInsights does not hype results. There will be periods of strong performance and weak performance — but there is a real and measurable edge. The techniques that SportsInsights researches, applies, and releases for its Members have been positive, on average, over the years.

We do not guarantee that the trends and biases we’ve found will continue to exist. It is impossible to predict the future. Any serious academic research in the field of “market efficiencies” recognizes that inefficiencies may disappear over time. Once
inefficiencies are discovered, it is only a matter of time before the market corrects itself. We do not guarantee our data is error-free. However, we’ve tried our best to make sure every score and percentage is correct.
