The St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers each rode hot streaks at the end of their regular season, right into the playoffs. How long can it last?
Alan Reifman, a professor in Texas Tech University’s Department of Human Development and Family Studies, who studies sports streakiness and conducts “hot hand” research, can speak to sports trends and statistical probability. His blog can be found at http://thehothand.blogspot.com/.
Reifman is also the author of the forthcoming book “Hot Hand: The Statistics Behind Sports’ Greatest Streaks.”
