NFL Computer Picks

Humans are biased and their opinions color their decisions. Machines don’t care if you have a man-crush on Tom Brady. If the stats say the New England Patriots will lose, then the computer will tell you – the Patriots will lose. This is why advanced stats have grown in popularity for fantasy leagues, pro sports teams, agents, and even the general stats geek. And it's why NFL computer predictions are coming to be relied upon more than the screaming, angle-quoting handicapper. See the NFL picks results to check out the machine's accuracy for the 2014 season.

Picking NFL winners against the spread is one of the toughest tasks in sports betting. Professional handicappers can try to sell you their information and you can try to figure it out yourself, searching through stats, trends, weather reports and studying line moves. Increasingly, bettors are relying on computers to do the work, to come up with unbiased, stats-focused predictions on NFL games. Of course, the output is only as good as the input. If the stats are accurate and significant handicapping measurements and if the formulas or algorithms are solid, then the resulting NFL computer selections can be reliable.

Depending on how complex (does it include player data, weather variations, depth chart consideration?) the formula is, you could have success with picking more NFL winners at the sportsbook. Of course, naysayers will always argue that a coin toss or some zoo animal will be able to do just as well, but those are true flukes. Computer picks have a basis in fact and stats. It’s just a question of finding the right mix of data and math, weighing the handicapping factors that you believe are relevant and important. If you find that perfect mix, you should be able to find edges and advantages that you can exploit at the sportsbook window each Sunday (or Monday).

So bookmark the Odds Shark NFL computer picks page. We will update it weekly and we’ll write articles describing how well or poorly it performed in the preceding week. Good luck.
