I use statfox for a variety of information. They have stats on all major sports. They also have situational analysis that is useful to look at from time to time.

Now I know they must import everything into their site from other sources. What I am particularly interested in is where they might import their situational analysis from. Or if there are competing sites that provide that also.

What they do is input the lines for the games and run a program that comes up with the analysis from a database of angles or situations.

The reason I am interested in this is for the most part they do an ok job updating there site. But with ncaa basketball totals they are pathetic for a subscription service. They are usually late updating their site on these totals and sometimes dont update until after games have started.

Any ideas of alternative sources of these angles? Surely there is a database or software that can be used for this or another service that provides this. I just cant find it

Thanks

Rick

Hmmm, let me give that some thought.  I just use their non pay Stat Fox page from a sportsbook, which also at times is slow to update.  My experience is that it seems they force a lot of situations.  I always laugh when they come up with a line that is far off from the actual line and put a StatFox star there.  If you go opposite the star (and are going against the public), that fade has been about 65-70% for me.

But that probably doesn't answer your question.  If I think of something I'll let you know.

Rick I paid for their premuim package for a couple years. They most likely do exactly what you are saying as far as inputing info etc. They don't do much of ANY updating (especially for baseball and especially for ump info). Any info they give on line movement in any sport is older than dirt and is never kept current. They very often have contradicting trend numbers on the same game which anybody can see when going through the info. I'm talking simple numbers such as in conference ATS. One part will say one thing and another will have numbers that don't jive with the 1st. I've tried to contact them in the past to supply other info such as a qb's team numbers when starting etc, along with other info and they never took interest. It's just numbers in, numbers out.

I think Vegas has all that and more in the line.

fwiw

back in the day, I found the stronger the ml trends, the better the play was opposite side ATS

Actually the stat fox edge (the star) if in agrement with other power rating sources, that i use has been very succesfull for me in predicting NCAA football games..
