Scorecasting by Tobias J. Moskowitz

Written like "Freakonomics" for sports fans, the Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games Are Won teams an economist with a sportswriter who uses statistics to challenge the conventional wisdom of American sports. Ideas like "Defense wins championships", and "Always punt on fourth down" are put to the test. Even the infamous "curse" of the Chicago Cubs is explored. The results are sometimes surprising, sometimes provocative but always interesting. The conclusions are laid out in clear terms that are easy to understand. A must read for any sports fan.
