    NFL Prediction (07/07/13)

    By Paul Bessire

    Each day over the next two weeks we will reveal a Prediction of the Day, where we share an interesting player or team prediction leading into the 2013 NFL season. Rams vs. Falcons, Tampa Bay's defense.

    Prediction: Neither the Denver Broncos nor the San Francisco 49ers will make the Super Bowl.  

    Why it is likely:

    Denver and San Francisco are the best teams from their respective conferences headed into 2013. That does not mean that their regular and postseason success is even likely, let alone guaranteed. Though favorites in their conference, San Francisco has just a 48.4% chance at this point to make the NFC Championship game and a 31.3% chance to make the Super Bowl. Denver’s path out of the AFC is a little easier as the Broncos make (likely host) the AFC Championship game 56.3% of the time, yet only get to the Super Bowl 34.8%.

    Possible obstacles:

    Denver wins 1.2 more games on average in our 50,000 simulations than ANY AFC team, which gives the Broncos an incredibly high (for this time of year) 93.8% chance to make the playoffs and a very good chance of being the AFC’s top seed. San Francisco is in a tough battle with Seattle in NFC West, yet still wins more games (11.3 to 11.0) than the Seahawks or any other NFC team (Green Bay is next at 10.2).

    Final thought:

    In the decade that we have been conducting this analysis on the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL, no team has been greater than a 30% favorite to win a pro sports championship before the season started and only the Miami Heat this season were greater than 50% likely to make the championship at this point. As exciting as it is to be a Broncos fan these days, keep in mind that it is more likely that a team that did not even make the playoffs last season wins the Super Bowl than that Denver does. For the 49ers, the Patriots, Bears, Panthers, Dolphins and Rams combine to be more likely to win it all than San Francisco.

    The Predictalator

    03/13/2017 Highlight: Using our ResultsFinder tool, it's evident that the Predictalator is entering March Madness in incredible form. The Predictalator posted 59 "normal" or better plays in March (plays with greater than 57% confidence) and went a stellar 36-23 (61.0%) on those plays. An average $50 bettor would have profited $678 using our recommended wager sizes. After posting an outstanding 8-1 (88.9%) ATS record on "normal" or better sides in last year's NCAA Tournament, the Predictalator looks poised to produce more NCAA Tournament winners.

    NBA predictions continue to follow the same heat wave of college hoops, as all playable sides are 30-25 (54.5%) ATS in the month of March. More importantly, top plays continue to produce at a staggering clip, with all "normal" or better sides off to a solid 9-3 (75.0%) ATS mark in March, producing $284 in profits for an average $50 bettor.

    The Predictalator's NHL picks continue to cash in consistenly as "normal" or better ML and PL plays are an outstanding 32-18 (64.0%) on the season, amassing $507 in total profits. While the betting market has really tightened up with NHL in recent months, the Predictalator continues to find success and is now 449-367 (55.0%) on all playable ML and PL plays this season.
