After an 11-4-1 week, can the Predictor keep up its winning ways, staying above 55% for the season?

Week 14 was a wonderful weekend for the Winning Stats Predictor, going 11-4-1 (thanks Jets for allowing a TD in OT at +6 to push that one), which was our best weekend of the season so far. Everything just fell perfectly into place. Season total now sits at 115-92-1, or 55.5%. It needs to finish with a record of 19-29 or better to have a winning Vegas season of 52.5%, so I'm fairly confident we'll get there. On pace to beat last year's 53.5%, which is really what I want.

Picking winners fell short of Against the Spread this week, going just 10-6, bringing that season total to 133-74-1, or 64%. Just a tick under my goal of 67%, but there's still time. Need to finish 37-11 to get there, so a tall task, but not impossible.

This week there's a good mix of home and road teams picked to win Against the Spread, something that is pretty rare, especially late in the season. We'll see how it does.

Picks for Week 15:

Home Score Away Score Probability
Rams 23 Cardinals 18 62.8%
Colts 25 Texans 23 56.3%
Bills 26 Packers 25 52.1%
Panthers 23 Buccaneers 19 62.2%
Browns 21 Bengals 17 60.3%
Lions 27 Vikings 16 76.7%
Chiefs 24 Raiders 21 57.7%
Patriots 29 Dolphins 23 66.3%
Giants 29 Redskins 19 74.0%
Falcons 31 Steelers 28 58.6%
Ravens 30 Jaguars 20 74.4%
Titans 20 Jets 25 61.9%
Chargers 21 Broncos 27 65.7%
Seahawks 27 49ers 15 79.9%
Eagles 25 Cowboys 24 52.2%
Bears 29 Saints 26 57.7%

SuperContest went 3-2 again last week (I'll keep taking them), bringing the season total to 40-30. Let's get a 5-0 week this week:

  • Raiders +10 at Chiefs
  • Bills +4.5 vs. Packers
  • Falcons +2.5 vs. Steelers
  • Panthers -3.5 vs. Buccaneers
  • Bears +3 vs. Saints

Survivor Pick: Easy win for the Lions last week. I've not used the Ravens yet this year, and it's a perfect spot for them at home against the Jaguars. Ravens easy winner.

USED: Jets, 49ers, Colts, Steelers, Chargers, Titans, Bills, Chiefs, Bengals, Cardinals, Saints, Packers, Dolphins, Lions
