Section 9.7. The Key Trends Report

Once we know what a statistically significant trend is, wouldn't it be nice to quickly extract all of them from today's schedule? The KEY TRENDS feature on the TRENDS menu does exactly that, it lists all of the statistically significant trends for the currently selected date.

The KEY TRENDS feature lets you select the date range to scan when looking for trends. You can scan the entire database or just a portion of the database. The report then lists every game on the schedule for the current date. The number of statistically significant trends will vary widely from game to game, but it is always worth looking at this report. Most handicappers agree that "the trend is their friend" and find the KEY TRENDS report to be a useful handicapping tool.
