With the installment of SportVU cams, we step into the world of completely fair and almost scientifical gaming.

So, what are we talking about exactly? According to the NBA’s official site, SportVU is a software that “tracks the movements of every player on the court and the basketball 25 times per second. The data collected provides a plethora of innovative statistics based around speed, distance, player separation and ball possession.”


When you come to think of it, doesn’t this sound as one of those professional gambling tools? It gives you accurate, real-time information on each player, which you can use later for your sports betting. It is genius! As NBA describes, you can measure the following stats: “how fast a player moves, how far he traveled during a game, how many touches of the ball he had, how many passes he threw, how many rebounding chances he had and much more.”


The ancestors of SportVU cams are missile defences systems


Woah, that sounds even more high tech! Instead of spotting missiles, SportVU cameras have been converted to track the movements of basketball pros, as ESPN reports. The teams want to use this futuristic tech for “scouting, injury prevention and game strategy,” among numerous other things. Every stat will be published on NBA’s website, from speed and distance covered, to touches, passes drives and rebounding opportunities. Basically, the whole game will be scientifically documented.


SportVU cams will become one of the most valued sports betting tools (in the NBA, at least for the time being.) As Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Wizards said in an interview with the site SI: “People are now going to start to make wagers in a real-time way. You know, ‘I think he’s going to make a pass instead of take the shot.’ And you’ll be able to instantly move money back and forth. So it’s better to get in front of it.” Didn’t I say so?
