My Super Bowl “quant fact” article was picked up by the NY Times; it quantifies key concepts of sports psychology to study methods of building and developing winning teams and champions. Please visit my blog for more information.
Super Bowl Square Pool Probabilities
Separately, if you are in a Square Pool, the NY Times published our Square Pool Probabilities last year (both online and "in print" on Super Bowl Sunday). The charts show the probability of winning a Square Pool by quarter, based on the underdog and favorite. To use the probability charts this season, replace last year's underdog, the Saints with the Steelers -- and the favorite, the Colts, with the Packers. Then, look up the numbers you received to view your chances of winning that quarter.
Special thanks to Don LaFronz, a financial advisor, who originated the idea and helped devise the methodology.
