So What Is Grand Prix Scout’s Gentleman’s Betting?
By utilizing our performance and trajectory indexes for all riders on all circuits, we are able to build statistically fair “Dream Teams” for every race. These Dream Teams compete for championship points meaning, which ever team brings home the most cumulative points is the winner. The teams are “re-built” each week as indexes are unique to a specific circuits and the Super Evolution Index fluctuates with current season performance.
Q: What is the Super Evolution Index?
A: This is Grand Prix Scout’s newest indexing system that takes into account our historical Speed and Consistency Indexes that measure race performance on any given circuit and handicaps it by current season performance.
