Sporting Solutions, the B2B software and data services division of the Sporting Index Group, today announces that it is significantly extending its coverage of baseball for the 2012 MLB season.

US sports are particularly popular with Sporting Solutions’ growing list of partners and approximately 45 MLB matches will be covered in play each week.

The extended range of markets on offer will range from match odds to handicap betting to total match and team runs, as well as individual innings runs and innings winner.

Ronnie Whelan, Business Development Director of Sporting Solutions, comments: “The demand for US sports continues to grow, and many more punters are now betting in-play on these sports. As we did with the start of the NFL, NBA and NHL seasons, we have significantly extended our baseball coverage and we expect this to prove very popular with our existing and prospective partners.”

Sporting Solutions is already firmly established as the pre-eminent provider of trading services to the global sports betting industry, covering the full betting lifecycle including event creation, pre-match and in-play pricing, and resulting.
