    Eli 70% Completion (07/29/14)

    How likely is Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes this fall?



    The New York Giants new quarterback coach Danny Langsdorf has challenged Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes in 2014.

    Manning has completed 58.5 percent of his passes in his career and his best single season completion percentage was 62.9 percent in 2010.

    Last season Manning completed 57.5 percent of his passes while leading the league with 27 interceptions.

    How likely is Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes?

    We project Manning's 2014 season to be an improvement from the disaster in 2013. Manning is projected to complete 61.1 percent (330 completions, 540 attempts) of his passes this season for 25 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.

    However, in 50,000 simulations, Peyton's little brother never completes 70 percent of his passes over a full season. Not even once!

    Even if you count his interceptions, which we project will lead the league for the second year in a row, as completions his percentage only rises to 64.6 percent.

    In order for Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes, the Giants quarterback would need to connect on 48 more passes. Using Manning's career average that would be more than two additional games worth of completions.

    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, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    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.
