Quant Fact Predictions now 24-14

Just a quick update after the Wimbledon Women's Final quant fact prediction.  We had no official play on the Wimbledon Men's Final.  

Our book's blog's record in "quant fact predictions" now stands at 24-14, a solid record that is based on the quantitative analysis of "sports psychology" that can help sports organizations and fans gain an edge.  The statistics add several interesting angles to sports analytics -- and regularly picks underdogs.

Dr. Jay Granat, a sports psychologist, and Carlton Chin, a "quant" fund manager and MIT graduate --  study and quantify championship characteristics related to sport psychology.  They are particularly interested in qualities that are more readily coached, taught, and practiced.
