Abstract

Using a database with 13 million records, we created new statistics and develop enhanced prediction models. Our thinking has always been centered around probabilities and sustainable production on the baseball field. This sustainable production is what will lead to player's and team's future successes. As a result, we have tried to quantify that success and implemented it into our models. We have created different models, and have had varying success with predicting the outcomes of baseball games. Lastly, we compared our models to Las Vegas book odds to see if any teams represented an arbitrage opportunity.
