Serious Scientists
SDQL Gurus are a team of serious scientists who use risk management, artificial intelligence, and the Sports Data Query Language (SDQL) database to capitalize on inefficiencies in the betting market. Overnight, the team runs 500 million SDQL queries, each of which describes a different handicapping situation, and outputs the top trends in past performance that apply to that day's slate. Dr. Edwin Meyer -- a PhD in physics who authored a six-part series for Card Player Magazine on how to beat NFL teasers -- leads the team. He gives classes in Vegas on the SDQL. In 2019, Meyer teamed up with Nate Bianco, aka the SDQL Kid, to win the Wise Guys Football Handicapping Contest. Dr. Meyer’s primary focus is using the SDQL to uncover conditions in which the betting line is significantly different from what it should be. His brother, Dr. Thomas Meyer, is a PhD in nonlinear physics and co-founder of the Prediction Company, a highly successful financial firm that specialized in predicting stocks and bonds. In 2019, he also began to focus his attention on sports, using years of AI expertise to uncover predictive relationships contained within sports data. Debuting with SportsLine in 2020, the SDQL Gurus went 39-22 (64 percent) on college basketball picks, returning $1,421 to $100 players in the abbreviated season. Then they crushed MLB, going 154-90 (63 percent), returning $1,566 to $100 players. For media inquiries, contact SportsLine@CBSInteractive.com.

SDQL's Past Picks

Minnesota 125 @ Sacramento 128 | 04/22 | 2:00 AM UTC

OVER 238.5


ANALYSIS: The two met yesterday and the Timberwolves came out on top 134-120 with De'Aaron Fox shooting an ugly 5-of-17 from the field. In franchise history, the Over is 13-0 after any Kings game in which Fox shot 35 percent or worse from the field and played more than 20 minutes. In addition, the Over is 10-0 off a Kings home game in which Harrison Barnes had a negative plus/minus and 9-0 off a Kings home loss in which Buddy Hield attempted more 3-pointers than 2-pointers. The Over is 9-0 when the Timberwolves have less than two days rest off a double-digit win in a road game in which they had a shooting percentage at least 10 points higher than their opponent's. The number is high, but we are on the Over.

+290 4-1 IN LAST 5 NBA PICKS

Detroit 117 @ Dallas 127 | 04/22 | 12:30 AM UTC

UNDER 220.5


ANALYSIS: The Under is 8-0 after a game in which Kristaps Porzingis did not have a positive plus/minus, with all of the games from this season. The Under also is 9-0 with Dallas at home with rest when its assists dropped by at least 10 from the game before and 8-0 with Dallas at home off a home loss in which it had three or fewer double-digit scorers. The Under is 7-0 when Detroit is on the road with rest after it had six-plus double-digit scorers. We are on the Under.

N.Y. Mets -140


ANALYSIS: The Mets are 11-0 in the second game of a series after a contest as a road favorite in which they had more strikeouts than hits. The Cubs are 0-11 as underdogs following a win as a dog in which they scored three runs or fewer and it is not the opener of a series. Take New York.

Milwaukee 4 @ San Diego 2 | 04/21 | 8:10 PM UTC

San Diego -203


ANALYSIS: San Diego is 19-0 as a favorite of more than 120 in the last game of a series when it is coming off a contest as an underdog in which it struck out at least 10 times. Milwaukee is 0-12 as a 160-plus underdog after a game as a favorite before the All-Star break in which it scored in two separate innings at the most. San Diego is the play.


Houston 3 @ Colorado 6 | 04/21 | 7:10 PM UTC

Houston -145


ANALYSIS: The Astros are 11-0 in the second game of a series as a road favorite following a contest as a favorite in which they had six or fewer hits. Houston scored first on Tuesday, but Colorado responded rapidly and got the victory. The Rockies have given these wins right back, as they are 0-9 after posting a comeback victory. We are on the Astros.
