How will sports-betting merge with Fantasy Sports (FS)?  Big data allows bookmakers to predict the outcomes of sport events with shocking accuracy, leaving the recreational gambler at a distinct disadvantage.  Look at the statistics' competition that took place during the last football (soccer) World Cup in June 2014, between  Baidu, Google, and Microsoft. The results were astonishing: Google lost the contest by correctly predicting the outcomes of the last 14 matches out of...15. Meanwhile, both Baidu and Microsoft had a perfect 100% accuracy score. For these big data giants, there is no doubt that the future will be read through statistics.  One can therefore predict that, in the long run, sports betting clients will massively become FS players. Big data is revolutionizing the industry and this is just the beginning.
