Quant Facts Now 40-23 (63.5%)

Our "quant fact" predictions were correct for all three games of the NCAA Men's Final Four. We correctly predicted that Connecticut would defeat Kentucky for the national title.  In addition, we had Connecticut and Kentucky winning their respective semifinal games.  Our methods have been particularly successful during March Madness.

This improves our record to 40-23 (63.5%) in major championships.  

We will be back shortly with our quant fact predictions -- related to sports psychology -- for the Stanley Cup Finals and NBA Finals.
