A pretty solid 'win' for Yahoo but overall, both prediction systems performed abysmally this week. Both had 5/9 with above average points but Yahoo had 4/9 with break out games of 10+ points to the Analyzer's 2/9. Both systems failed to predict a few monstrous games in CHI (36 points), TEN (22 points), DAL (19 points), NE (18 points), OAK (11 points) and ARI (10 points). My never sits of BAL and NYJ had terrible 1 point days each. DET, SF and PIT all had somewhat below average games. I hope Robot started his bears because they looked awesome
HOU vs. CIN, I guessed wrong with CIN. Jets, MIa, Jac, CLe: I guessed wrong with the Jets. JAC was the winner there. HOU, BUF and above called CLE the risk reward bet. Did fine and safe but not the payoff hoped. GB vs. DET I picked DET. I'm betting GB was the right pick now. TB, JAC, KC, CLE - I picked JAC which was the right one. SF, PHI, DET, I picked SF but PHI had 14 to SF's 6. BUF, JAC, CLE, CIN, I correctly picked JAC. Basically, you were better off getting to two teams and flipping a coin than listening to me this week
If you called Seattle beating Baltimore, you don't need this lousy thread. CHI trounced DET and NE trounced the jets which both systems missed. Dallas' stars aligned very nicely for a 44-7 thrashing of the bills. SD has now given out 6/9 games with 10+ points and only one below average game this season. Interesting stat there considering how high quality Rivers had been in prior seasons.
Anyway, a bit head down but going to press on. Btw, whoever first asked how accurate these projections are at the start of this season, good question. But I will say this, I don't know of any other prediction system that posts how well they do week to week and I know why, this level of honesty is painful!
