    NFL All-Injury Team (11/5/13)

    By John Ewing
    The NFL is on pace for a record number of injuries. How would a team full of injured NFL players do against an average schedule? We simulated the season to find out.


     
    Halfway through the 2013 season the rate at which players are being placed on the injured reserve lists exceeds the pace of 2010, when an all-time-high 343 players finished the season on IR per USA TODAY Sports.
     
    With so many big-name players being hurt one could construct an All-Injury team. If healthy, how would a team comprised of these players fare against an average NFL schedule? We simulated the season to find out.
     
    PredictionMachine.com’s All-Injury team
    • Quarterback: Sam Bradford (Prior to Aaron Rodgers injury)
    • Wide Receivers: Julio Jones, Jeremy Maclin, and Reggie Wayne
    • Running Back: Doug Martin
    • Tight End: Dennis Pitta
    • O-Line: Ryan Clady, Luke Joeckel, Dan Koppen, Maurkice Pouncy, & Brian Waters
    How This Works
     
    We took our All-Injury team, added an average defense and simulated a season 50,000 times to see how this team of damaged goods would do against an average schedule. 
     
    Playoff Bound?
     
    With the offensive talent on this team the All-Injury squad would average 25.4 points per game, that would tie them with Washington for 12th best in the league. The All-Injury team, again with an average defense, would win 9.5 games. On average winning between 9 and 10 games would be good for the sixth seed in either conference right now. We would give this team a 44% chance of making the playoffs.

    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.
