Week 5 – Newsletter with Predictions

No comments.

Not much to say about Week 4 results. One bright spot, 2 out of 3 favorites covered but our underdogs were truly pathetic. Left us high and dry down one for the week. And the beat goes on. This week the algorithm has flipped to the Favorites side from the previous week’s Underdog leaning. Of the eight favorites we have both Michigan’s once again showing up. Wisconsin is on the road for the second straightRead More

Week 4 – Drip Drip Drip

No comments.

This year resembles water torture, except when a big blow is delivered. Once again, we got caught by a deterioration in the point spread.(from early week Newsletter date to final spread at game time). Akron would have pushed with 7 points instead of hitting the loss column. Plus, our underdogs have continued the trend of getting blown out, all of them. Seems as though our algorithm has identified all the non-competitive underdogs. It should changeRead More

Week 3 Recap – The Cost of Transparency One thing I can say is when you reach out to the world you stand the chance of complete embarrassment. Week 3 was just a continuation of the first 2 weeks, but worse. In the previous 5 years data nothing came close to a complete wipeout, but it happened. To someone schooled in statistics, the zero win outcome is always a very slim probability. It can happen,Read More

Week 3 – Unbelievable Unexplainable Unthinkable

No comments.

Just when you think it can’t get any worse, you get kicked in the teeth when your down. We have been patiently waiting for the numbers to kick in and resemble the previous five years. The first 3 weeks are truly unexplainable. We could talk about all the conventional reasons for the losing, but the fact is we designed the algorithm to be completely independent of conventional thinking. Let the numbers speak, and scream they have thisRead More

The first two weeks have been tough, but we are in it for the season. Our premise has always been to rely on the algorithm knowing if it functions as history indicates it should, we will have a solid winning season. The first two weeks have been tough to watch with late game losses overwhelming the selections. This week it was too much to overcome shoddy coaching and the officials. Regardless, we are pressing forward aRead More

Week 2 – Snakebit

No comments.

It all started Friday night with Syracuse. After giving up 35 quick points to Louisville they managed to bring the game back to a push late in the game. Then they simply laid down to allow Louisville to score 17 quick points to cover the spread. That was the sign.  Indiana had a big lead over Ball State and actually looked like a football team, then they laid down and gave up 17 fourth quarterRead More

Here we go again.  The algorithm has come up with favorites dominating the list once again. We have 11 picks, 8 of them favorites. Our favorites are some big time teams.  Michigan, Clemson, Florida, Texas, Iowa and Oregon.  Two of our lesser favorites are Boston College and Indiana.  Indiana is an unexplainable -17.5 favorite over Ball State. Conventional knowledge tells us Indiana shouldn’t be favored over your local Boy Scout team. This is further proofRead More

Week 1 – A Tough Opening Week to Watch

No comments.

The start to this season brings to light a simple fact. Opening point spreads are pure conjecture as the media hypes teams that are unworthy of being heavily favored. In our case, Arkansas, Florida and Tennessee exhibited this fact. All were at home playing LA Tech, Massachusetts and Appalachian State respectively. Florida didn’t even come close to covering the point spread with 3 touchdown favorites Arkansas and Tennessee lucky to win their games. Both hadRead More
