Quant Facts Update (45-27 = 62.5%) + Super Bowl Articles

We correctly predicted the winner of the 2015 MLB World Series, increasing our published "quant fact" results to 45-27, or 62.5%.  It is noteworthy that these results are not versus a point spread (against the spread) -- but based on straight winners.  However, we regularly predict that underdogs win championships.
