I've been studying numberFire.com for the last month or so. They been a great asset thus far in some of my Fantasy Football choices, and I used them to set line ups this last week ( I won 3 of 4 FF match ups this week). They establish their predictions using Markov Chains, which is math speak for - If this, and this, then this will be a probable result.
Math and sports - who woulda thunk it?
Interesting take by numberFire.com on the effect of the MNF game, and how math can be used to predict games...
