I’ve chatted with the Sports Insights crew for a while on constructing quant ideas in the sports analytics world. They consistently do a good job, and one of their favorite concepts is betting against the public. (Check out this 2011 post of mine.) They also looked at vegas prop odds for various players to win most yards in each category and compared those to Yahoo draft spots to find over and under valued players. Worth a read!
Looks like I’ll be drafting Welker, Stafford, and C Johnson….
