    NFL Camp Competition (07/24/13)

    John Ewing, Director of Research and Analytics
    By John Ewing
    With NFL training camps underway we check in on a few key position battles around the league including NFL rookies. (2013 projections for rookies are based on this analysis which projects rookie seasons for all NFL prospects as if they were starters on average NFL teams).


     
    There are many position battles occurring around the league. This series will look at some of the most prominent clashes occurring in NFL training camps. Previous competitions: Jets QB
     
    Buffalo Bills – Quarterback battle

    Challenger: Kevin Kolb
    2012 stats – 1,169 yards, 8 TDs, 3 INTs
    This quarterback competition is truly wide open as there is no incumbent. Kolb signed with Buffalo in free agency this year. Kolb had led the Arizona Cardinals to a 4-0 start before suffering a rib injury that ended his season last year. Kolb has been effective as a starter in the NFL but injuries have plagued his career. If he can stay on the field he may give the Bills the best chance to win.
     
    Challenger: E.J. Manuel
    2013 projections – 3,589 yards, 18.5 TDs, 17.3 INTs
    The Bills surprised many when they drafted Manuel at No. 16 in the NFL Draft this spring, making him the first quarterback taken (he was fourth in our rankings). After the success of Luck, Griffin, and Wilson last season some Bills fans might expect Manuel to not only start but to win in his rookie campaign. Manuel is a strong-armed mobile player that has the ability to succeed in the NFL but he will have to overcome inconsistency that dogged his collegiate career.
     
    Challenger: Jeff Tuel
    2013 projections – 3,274 yards, 15.3 TDs, 18.3 INTs
    After the Bills released backup Tarvaris Jackson, new head coach Doug Marrone said either Kolb or Manuel would be the starter. Tuel, a Washington State product and undrafted free agent, is probably just happy to be listed on the depth chart. Then again, Russell Wilson was the third man on the depth chart heading into training camp when he beat out the aforementioned Jackson and Matt Flynn.

    04/24/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now in full swing, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides, totals, and run lines have all been profitable to date, generating a total of $580 for an average $50 bettor.

There is a ton of variance in baseball and there will be ups-and-downs along the way, but the early returns on the Predictalator's baseball projections are promising.

    The NBA Playoffs tipped off this week and the Predictalator is off to a stellar start.
