With the advent of the Internet and the proliferation of sports books and tout services accessible with the click of mouse, bettors and sports enthusiasts are best served by relying on an established and respected sports information company. Computer Sports World certainly fits the bill.
Computer Sports World (CSW) began operation in 1983, recording traditional sports statistics as well as handicapping information for all major U.S. sports. Word quickly spread about the comprehensiveness and accuracy of CSW's data. To meet the needs of its customers in the fastest way possible, CSW became the first company to offer betting line updates via computer. Customers would dial into a bulletin board and download lines and statistics. Executives at DBC Sports realized they had something special and made a commitment to three basic principles: timeliness, accuracy, and customer service.
A full slate of products and services were developed with these principles at the core. A computer-based Instant Odds product called SportSignal was the first to launch. SportSignal allowed customers to view live betting lines from Las Vegas sports books as well as a live consensus line from Las Vegas Sports Consultants. Customers initially could only receive SportSignal via cable, FM, or satellite reception. However, SportSignal technology was brought to the Internet in the summer of 1997.
Since its inception, several offshore sports books have been added to the SportSignal product and more will be added soon. Any savvy bettor knows the importance of shopping lines for the sharpest number, and SportSignal has proven to be the best tool. Not only does the customer see real-time line moves, SportSignal also has important handicapping information such as late-breaking injury and weather reports. Part of CSW's commitment to customer service is providing information that is not only up-to-the-second, but also verified for accuracy.
CSW Stats offers access to thousands of handicapping files via the Internet. In 1997, CSW spawned www.cswstats.com, an easy-access Web site with three levels of service to accommodate everyone from the casual bettor to the serious handicapper. The database team at CSW updates statistics nightly, double-checking every entry.
Sports books also take advantage of the many statistics available through CSW. The Stardust and the Las Vegas Hilton have computer stations in their sports books that display CSW statistics for bettors to access.
CSW understands that excellent products are just one part of the equation. We are committed to providing the highest level of personal service to each of our customers. Whether it's a question about the feasibility of a proposition bet you would like to post, or an inquiry regarding the different options on SportSignal, our staff is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help.
