The number 1 sports directory for sharps & best betting resources for sports bettors
Data analysis is taking over. Not just in sports betting but in every walk of life. With that, the world might start to become very monotonous with a new AI led way of thinking being bred into the younger generations. We have to be careful. The more data the better our knowledge of everything but we need proper data scientists on the case, sorting the signal from the noise. This is a fact but we are in danger of becoming immersed in heuristics and settling for the dreaded averages.
Efficiency is what we really crave. Preciseness governed by conditional probability theory. Crack that as a punter or a gambler and you'll be well on your way to beating the sports betting markets. Actually you'll be well on your way in life wherever the road takes you.
