ResultsFinder Highlights
Using the ResultsFinder for the Week of December 8th - 14th one could find that all Week 15 playable against-the-spread NFL picks went 8-4 (67% ATS), highlighted by the Lock of the Week, the Denver Broncos (-4 @ San Diego), covering by more than a touchdown.

All playable NFL ATS and O/U picks in the last three weeks are a combined 45-22 (67% ATS and O/U). And over the last nine weeks, all playable against-the-spread picks have been .500 or better each week and are 65-37 (64% ATS) overall. This mirrors last season when all playable NFL ATS picks in the second half of the season finished 71-41 (63% ATS), culminating in a 9-1-1 (90% ATS) playoff record.

With bowls starting at the end of this week, it's important to note that highlighted, "normal" or better bowls picks for the 2013-14 season went 14-9 (61% ATS and O/U). Playable college football bowl totals are also 48-35 (58% O/U) since the site launched.

NFL and College Basketball halftime plays continue to provided great value. All normal or better against-the-spread plays in these sports combined to go 37-28 (57% ATS). And, lastly, "normal" or better NHL plays went 20-13 (61% ML, O/U and PL), the eighth week in the last nine that has been profitable for hockey.

What is PredictionMachine?

PredictionMachine.com strives to be the most accurate and trusted source for predicting sports outcomes straight-up and against-the-spread.

The state-of-the-art and unbiased Predictalator ("the Prediction Machine") was built by Paul Bessire, a statistician and veteran sports journalist, who offers his unique takes through his blog posts and his matchup breakdowns in his in-depth analysis.

PredictionMachine.com finds the angle that you need to win with accuracy that stems from the Predictalator, which plays the game 50,000 times before it's actually played to provide confidence picks straight-up, against-the-spread and over/under as well as player projections for fantasy players and props.

The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players (playing or not playing/injured), coaches, officials, fans (homefield advantage) and weather in each game.
