Football Rankings (11/18/2013)

Not only does the Predictalator run every upcoming game 50,000 times, it plays every team against every other team to come up with the ultimate Power Rankings. The Predictalator is successful because it best accounts for actual matchups and team's abilities to exploit opponent's weaknesses using strength-of-schedule-adjusted statistics, so the Power Rankings are not necessarily the best way to know who would win between two teams. They are, however, the best possible way to measure which teams have put together the most impressive seasons. The best team may not be favored against the second-best team, but it would be favored more significantly against the rest of the teams in the sport.

To build the college football Power Rankings below, we "played" every team against every other team 50,000 times each and ranked by overall winning percentage of those games. These Power Rankings are as of (11/18/2013) rosters and projected depth charts.

In addition to the college football Power Rankings, we have also included each team’s overall Offensive and Defensive rankings as well as Pass and Rush efficiency rankings relative to the league based on our strength-of-schedule-adjusted statistics and current rosters.

The Predictalator

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 (home field advantage) and weather in each game.

7/21/2014 Highlight: Using the ResultsFinder for the last two weekends July 11th - 20th (since the All-Star break fell during last week), one could find that all playable over/under MLB plays went 26-17 (61% O/U).

The Predictalator plays every game 50,000 times before it's actually played. This provides us the ability to assign probabilities to the likelihood of just about any outcome occurring in any contest including straight-up, against-the-spread and over/under winners of each game.
