Week 12 F/+ Picks

New, 1 comment

Well ... pretty good week after the ridiculousness of mid-week MACtion. The picks went 1-5 in Tuesday-through-Thursday games, then 29-21 thereafter. Still, for the season this method has been just slightly better than flipping a coin. Hopefully there will be time in the offseason to revisit how these ratings, which evaluate teams pretty well, can be used in a more predictive manner.

As for this week's picks ... well-played, Vegas. There are 56 games below; for 25 of them, the spread and projection are within two points of each other. A ridiculous 37 are within four points. A cointoss really might be the best way to make picks this week.
