The Quant Edge:
Fast Facts

The Quant Edge is a predictive analytics internet company that provides a winning edge for sports bettors and fantasy sports players.

Our web-based platform utilizes the industry’s most powerful algorithms to provide the in-depth analysis and content that consumers, media outlets, and beyond have been missing.  That includes partnerships with sportsbooks to provide direct access to betting opportunities.

The Sports Data Race

Sports fans are no longer forced to sit on the sidelines.  Digital technologies are giving consumers more access to ever to their favorite sports, and more opportunities to “get in the action”.  Three areas in particular are experiencing a popularity boom:

Legal sports betting, thanks also to deregulation in the US in DE, MS, NV, NM, NJ, PA, OR, RI and WV.

Fantasy sports, with a particularly rapidly developing marketplace in Europe & UK

Esports (pro gaming), with an exploding young global demographic

With fantasy & sports betting becoming more popular, there’s also a growing consumer demand for in-depth data that allows for smarter wagering decisions.  Media entities and even the sports arenas themselves are scrambling to provide this content to consumers.

However, no single source has been established as the go-to in the market as of yet.

This leaves a huge opportunity to put exclusive analytic tools in the hands of the growing demographic of action-hungry sports fans - and to take control of a very lucrative market.

Get That Winning Edge

Introducing The Quant Edge (TQE):
a web-based ecosystem of applications & content - backed by world-class mathematics - that helps sports fans make more intelligent betting and fantasy contest decisions.

The TQE site combines a clean, modern, interactive user experience with the industry’s most advanced algorithms and unique multi-sport tools.  The result is optimal performance in real time - whether placing a football bet or playing a little daily fantasy (DFS) basketball.

Plus, through the strength of our partner network, we’re also building a portal to access some of the world’s top betting sites.

For instance, players will be able to utilize TQE to bet through to the sportsbooks depending upon how games are delivered in the media - whether it’s iOS, Roku, Amazon, Apple TV, or another.

Deep industry-leading insight is therefore just the beginning; our end goal is to become the bridge between sports consumers, media entities, & sportsbooks.  We’re off to a great start too - beating Vegas lines at a 57% clip for the NFL season.

How We Operate

TQE is a multi-layered platform offering several base packages centered on betting and DFS for football & basketball.  Across the board, we utilize common, advanced data science metrics kept separate from sports intuition for the purest quantitative results.

The powerful, proprietary machine learning algorithms that produce these results don’t appear that way on the front end; instead, they’re presented to users in the form of these easy-to-understand, visually appealing core tools:



Daily Best Bets
Who we think will cover the spread and over-under for each game, assigning confidence ratings to each pick


Player Performance Changer
Allows users to provide their own insight and change player performance to their liking, which updates betting lines



Opinion-Based Odds
Users can see how lines, totals, and probabilities change based on their inputs


Injury Tool by Snap
Provides breakdown of every player before each snap, showing 10 of the most important team predictive statistics by selected player (cannot be found anywhere else)

Matchup comparison
Includes heatmaps for players &defenses, rankings vs. positions (i.e. WR vs. CB), and team vulnerabilities (cannot be found anywhere else)

TQE also plays host to more traditional (yet very useful) content like articles, featured podcasts, and betting results.  It’s all presented in a way that’s far less crowded than competing sites yet still well-suited for the biggest aficionados.

Our key affiliate relationships, like ones we have with NJ sportsbooks, are what allow us to provide true end-to-end service.  We work together with them to provide customers a complete solution while opening up a valuable profit sharing revenue stream.

HERE’S AN EXAMPLE OF THE UNIQUE BETTING OPPORTUNITIES THIS LETS US PROVIDE: 
during a 4th quarter NBA blowout, the insight we deliver will allow users to capitalize on a live line that wasn’t made with much analysis - giving the bettor a huge advantage.

The back end of our platform leverages top cloud-based technologies like Amazon Web Services, R, and Shiny.
