How to Use the MLB Odds Spreadsheet

What You Can Do with Live MLB Odds in a Spreadsheet
Having live MLB odds in a spreadsheet opens up many opportunities for analysis. While having the raw data gives you the opportunity to build whatever you’d like, below are a few ideas on how to use the data:
Compare Your Model to Live MLB Odds
If you build models in a spreadsheet, having live MLB odds is a big time saver.
Once your model has output your desired metrics (win probability, spread, total, etc.), you can match up those numbers to the current lines.
This will not only tell you how much of an edge you have (if at all), but will also show you where the best available odds are.
Build a Custom Odds Screen
Similar to odds screens you will find on the web, you can build your own version in a spreadsheet.
The advantage to having it in a spreadsheet is that it is fully customizable. You can add custom calculations, settings, etc. that fit your needs.

Supplement Live MLB Odds with More Data
Having odds in a spreadsheet allows you to pull in any other data source you’d like. You could add things like injury news, lineups, stats, recent tweets, etc. that could be beneficial information to join with your odds.
