Re(1): Handicapping a Doubles Team Ability.....when little or no data is available

seems to me like doubles games are much more challenging to handicap.

Lot of questions in your post, but a good starting point would be to define what you mean by handicap.

Let's say you looked at Erik in all his doubles games and categorized his entries by type - whatever you choose - with your projected win rates for each. You might have perfect results but no profit.

Similarly, you might find that your projected win rate for all posts in all doubles games matches up very well with what happens on the court. But again, no profit.

So that is the issue - by handicap do you mean 'assess accurately', or 'find winning plays' / 'make a profit'?
