NFL Predictions Dominate Week 9

You may have read our NFL Week 9 Scores Prediction article last week in passing, then wondered aloud how the formula actually worked.

If you bet every prediction from last week, you went 12-2 ATS in 14 games, an impressive start to the machine’s work in 2011. (OddsShark.com only focuses on its picks after Week 8 when a half season worth of stats, trends and line activity are in the books).

The only games where it missed was the Texans vs Browns (and that was close as the machine picked a 27-15 final, not quite enough to cover 12.5 points, so it picked the Browns ATS) and the Jets upsetting Buffalo.

It nailed every other game against the spread. It was a modest 8-6 in picking over-unders.

Before we get to the Week 10 NFL picks, take a peek at the results from last week, with the predicted score on the left and the actual results on the right.

In Week 10 handicapping, the machine actually picks a pair of ties. Maybe the 29-29 prediction in the Jets Patriots game is appropriate since the odds are EV in that game.

The scores predictor is picking seven underdogs among the 15 games (it predicts a 26-19 final in the Eagles vs Cardinals game but there is still no line posted on that game).

It has five of those dogs not only covering but winning outright, which serves as an alert to NFL moneyline bettors to check out the dog lines on those games (Bengals, Titans, Bills, Broncos, Lions).

It predicts more OVERs again this week at a 9-6 mark.
