    Chiefs Miss Playoffs (07/03/14)

    Throughout July, we will reveal a prediction involving an interesting player or team leading into the 2014 NFL season.



    Prediction: The Kansas City Chiefs will miss the Playoffs

    A year removed from "earning" the first overall draft choice with the league's worst record, the Chiefs leveraged a talented roster, new head coach, the benefits of a last place schedule and a change at quarterback to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth as an AFC Wild Card team. While Houston is likely to do something similar this year, look for regression from a Chiefs team that the projections suggest will finish below .500. Opening the season with nine straight wins, Kansas City played the easiest first half of the season schedule in the history of the NFL. When the competition picked up, the team faded, winning just two of its final six games. In all, Kansas City was 1-6 against teams that made the playoffs last year. The Chiefs will have a tougher schedule this season, have the best team in football within their division and have an offense that currently ranks 29th in the league in our roster talent evaluations.

    Technically, Kansas City makes the playoffs 16.6% of the 50,000 simulations for the season, which is just the 25th "best" chance of getting into the NFL postseason. Carolina is the only other team that made last year's postseason that is not in our most likely playoffs. The Panthers take a big step back with their own offensive woes and have just a 28.4% chance of making the playoffs. With the average postseason turning over half of its teams in the last 15 years, the next four most likely teams to miss this year's playoffs that made last year's postseason are (in order), the San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals.

    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 are have been a total of nine "normal" or better positions year-to-date, and those positions are a sparkling 8-1 (88.9%), producing $393 in total profits. 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. With a full season's worth of data to work with, the Predictalator has historically fared very well in the postseason across all sports, and this year has been no different. NBA playoff sides are 9-7 (56.3%) ATS, while NBA playoff totals are 15-9 (62.5%) through Sunday's action. A $50 bettor would have amassed $401 in total profits through the first week of the postseason alone.
