2013 NFL Winning Stats Predictor Picks: Week 17

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The best year in the Predictor's history comes to a close this week, with almost every game having some sort of meaning. Let's finish out strong!

Usually during this week the Winning Stats Predictor needs a miracle week to get itself back to 50% on the season, but, in 2013, that isn't the case at all. Thanks to the best year in its short history, and even after a 'meh' week at 8-8 last week, it's looking like it'll be the best year picking games Against the Spread. As it stands now it is 126-108-6 ATS, which is 53.8%. Again, anything over 52.4% is a successful season, so as long as I can get 5.5 wins in Week 17, it'll be a money maker in 2013. It makes me quite happy.

In picking games straight up last week I went a disappointing 9-7, but it seemed like one of those weeks where several favorites got beat. On the season it's now 152-87, or 63.6%. I'm happy there too. But need to finish strong, so let's go 16-0 this week:

Home Score Away Score Probability
Falcons 21 Panthers 26 64.2%
Bears 25 Packers 26 50.1%
Titans 25 Texans 18 66.7%
Steelers 28 Browns 23 64.0%
Giants 17 Redskins 16 52.1%
Bengals 24 Ravens 11 80.3%
Cowboys 24 Eagles 29 62.0%
Colts 27 Jaguars 19 69.9%
Dolphins 21 Jets 19 53.1%
Vikings 19 Lions 24 61.8%
Patriots 21 Bills 20 50.3%
Saints 24 Buccaneers 17 68.6%
Raiders 22 Broncos 28 67.7%
Cardinals 20 49ers 21 52.5%
Chargers 26 Chiefs 22 62.1%
Seahawks 24 Rams 18 67.1%

SuperContest had a nice 4-1 week, getting back comfortably over .500 at 41-37-2. Just need one to stay above .500. This week's lines actually include the Packers +4.5, but I'm going to stay away from that one. Here's my final top 5 picks:

  • Falcons +7 vs. Panthers
  • Bengals -6 vs. Ravens
  • Bills +9 at Patriots
  • Cardinals +1 vs. 49ers
  • Cowboys +6.5 vs. Eagles
