    Week 1 Lines (04/23/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    Point spreads for every Week 1 game of the 2015 NFL season. Odds courtesy of Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.



    The NFL released the 2015 schedule on Tuesday and shortly after the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook posted Week 1 lines. Here's everything you need to know in April about games that will be played in September.

    The defending champion Patriots opened as the biggest favorites. New England will host Pittsburgh in the season opener as a six point favorite. In the Tom Brady era, the Pats as home favorites of less than a touchdown are 38-19-4 (67%) against-the-spread.

    There are seven home underdogs in Week 1, the most since 2010. All-time, home dogs of three or more points in Week 1 are 74-55-3 (57%) against-the-spread.

    The highest over/under is 53.5 when the Eagles visit the Falcons in Game 1 of the Monday Night doubleheader. There are five games with totals of 50 or more points.

    A lot will change (draft/trades/injuries) before kickoff in Week 1. However, don't expect the lines to change much. Last year, from when the lines were posted to kickoff of the first game, only two lines moved more than three points.

    Additional Notes:
    • The Seahawks, 11/2 favorites to win the Super Bowl, are 3.5 point favorites over St. Louis.
    • Green Bay has won nine of its last ten games against Chicago, the Packers are four point road favorites against the Bears.
    • Oakland is favored to lose. The Raiders have been dogs in 21 straight games.
    • Detroit is the only playoff team from last year to not be favored against a non-playoff team. Pittsburgh and Baltimore are also underdogs but they play New England and Denver.

    The Predictalator

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
