    Turnovers, Turnaround (07/17/14)

    Paul Bessire, General Manager
    By Paul Bessire
    Over the next few weeks we will reveal a prediction involving an interesting player or team leading into the 2014 NFL season.



    Prediction: Turnovers = Turnaround?

    An oft-cited cliché in analytics circles is that “turnovers equal turnaround.” This means that teams with extreme turnover margins from previous seasons are not likely to see those extremes again. Bad turnover margin teams generally improve and significantly so from one year to the next and vice versa. However, that does not mean that predicting turnovers is impossible nor that turnovers are not important. According to our projections for 2014, the 12 worst teams at forcing turnovers are expected to all miss the playoffs.

    Eli Manning is projected to lead the league in interceptions thrown for the second straight season and fourth time in his career. This is partially due to the fact that he can withstand such poor decision making and still retain his job. Five teams – the Jets, Cardinals, Raiders, Vikings and Bills - throw more interceptions per pass attempt than Eli Manning in the projections. Andrew Luck is the best quarterback in the league for 2014 at limiting interceptions with just 1.8% interceptions per pass attempt.

    The Predictalator

    03/27/2017 Highlight: With the start of MLB right around the corner, we can use our ResultsFinder tool to uncover some past success in baseball. April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April. MLB season win totals have also been extremely fruitful in the history of this site, with the Predictalator producing an outstanding 54-19 (74.0%) record on all playable win totals.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator. There were a total of 69 "normal" or better college hoops positions (sides and totals) in the month of March, and the Predictalator posted a strong 42-27 (60.9%) record, generating $704 in total profits. NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March. The Predictalator has now amassed an incredible 45-28 (61.6%) on all "normal" or better money lines, puck lines, and totals this season, totaling $499 in total profits for a ?$50 bettor.
