London, 29th March 2011 – Sporting Solutions, the B2B arm of the Sporting Index Group, announces it is offering unprecedented in-play price coverage of Major League Baseball ahead of the new season.

At the height of the season the service will cover up to 60 Major League Baseball games in-play per week. It features nine separate markets, all updated in real-time and with ultra-low latency.

The service allows bookmakers to outsource their in-play betting and take advantage of Sporting Solutions’ unique offer which combines algorithmic modelling with trader expertise.

Dave Grogan, Business Development Director for Sporting Solutions, comments: “From the first matches of the regular season, which begins on Thursday 31st March, all the way through to the World Series in October, no other supplier comes close to our level of coverage.

“Our partners generate great business from baseball, and our US sports service in general. We offer sportsbooks a quick way to offer a world class US sports in-play service. Our expanding baseball provision demonstrates the industry’s voracious appetite for North American in-play sports.”

Baseball is just one of over 20 sports covered in Sporting Solutions’ unique trading and pricing service which are supplied to an expanding roster of partners.
