mathletics_2My book Mathletics is for everyone who wants to know how professional baseball, football and basketball teams use math to improve their team’s performance. The book develops all needed math so it is entirely self contained. If you’ve wanted to know the math behind Moneyball, or how to evaluate NBA players and lineups this book is for you. Many topics are covered such as how to evaluate the effectiveness of running and passing plays and how to rate sports teams. Finally, we have an extensive section on the mathematics of gambling on football, basketball and baseball. Mathletics will be available by September 15, 2009!


  1. Prof. Winston,

    I encourage you to try and get a copy of your book to Bill Simmons, aka The Sports Guy on ESPN.com. He’s previously expressed his fascination with using statistical analysis in sports and I think he could give your book some positive press.

    I will definitely be picking up a copy myself…can’t wait to check it out!
