SIS Launches ‘SIS Model 5’ for 2021 MLB season
Daily Fantasy Baseball projections powered by the most accurate, detailed MLB data.
Sports Info Solutions has been at the forefront of baseball data and analytics for over 15 years. Formerly “Baseball Info Solutions”, the company has been a driving force behind the Sabermetric Revolution and the Moneyball Era, due largely in part to groundbreaking analytical contributions such as Defensive Runs Saved (DRS).
Over the past six years, SIS has turned its extensive database and analytical prowess loose on the Daily Fantasy Sports industry.
Beginning in 2016, John Dewan and our R&D team built the most comprehensive DFS model imaginable using the vast resources at their disposal. From this project spawned the original “Model 1”, which has undergone extensive testing and development behind the scenes to eventually lead us to the tool that is now available for the 2021 MLB season – “SIS Model 5”.
We believe SIS Model 5 to be the most advanced analysis of daily player performance.
The model is also used to power SISBets.com (founded in 2019), a prop betting assist tool that guides users to find value against the sportsbook. Pairing subscriptions to the SIS Model 5 projections and SISBets.com is a power play that can help users effectively uncover value in the prop betting market.
Let’s take a look behind the curtain at SIS Model 5…
First, the model uses elements involving the player himself, such as:
— Player age and how each stat is specifically affected by his age
— Career performance
— Recent performance and specific recency weightings for each stat
— Home park of the player (where he plays half his games)
Secondly, it looks at elements that affect player performance based on game conditions:
— Performance vs. the handedness of the opposing pitcher
— Quality of the opposing pitcher including how well the pitcher performs based on batter handedness
— How the ballpark affects performance (including specialized Coors Field analytics)
— Temperature at game time
— Wind speed and direction at game time
— Pitchers-friendly umps and hitter-friendly umps
— Where the hitter hits in the lineup
— Quality of other players in the lineup
— How offensive support affects a pitcher’s likelihood to get a win
— How each stat is independently affected by each one of these elements
— How individual player tendencies and relevant timing data affect stolen bases
The model also features:
— Speedy updates thanks to SIS Video Scouts and IT staff churning out the latest roster, lineup, and injury information.
— SIS’ proprietary Defensive-Independent Batting & Pitching Statistics (DIBS & DIPS) formula, which uses batted ball characteristics (velocity, trajectory, and location) to determine expected outcomes for every ball in play.
— The renowned player projections system derived by Bill James and John Dewan
