0-3 in games highlighted last week. 11-16 overall. Well, that experiment proved not too promising. I was hoping that I would be able to pick the best games to bet on. But my model, used in every game, vastly outperformed my choice of which 3 games to bet on each week. So I’ll stop highlighting games to bet on in the future.
Here are my wildcard predictions, with the current line in parentheses:
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers (-7.0): Predicting 19.3-20.6. Bet on the Arizona Cardinals.
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.0): Predicting 23.2-25.1. Bet on the Baltimore Ravens.
Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts (-3.5): Predicting 21.4-26.5. Bet on the Indianapolis Colts.
Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys (-8.0): Predicting 19.1-24.9. Bet on the Detroit Lions.
