    Undefeated Odds (09/08/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    What are the chances that Ohio State goes undefeated?



    The defending champions, the No. 1 team in our Power Rankings, avenged their lone loss of last season by dropping 42 points and 572 total yards of offense on Virginia Tech in the Buckeyes season opener. Ohio State's trio of quarterbacks - Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Braxton Miller (now a receiver/running back) – made a statement in the resounding victory, each contributed offensively by having either a passing, rushing or receiving touchdown.

    With so much talent, what are the chances that Urban Meyer's team goes undefeated in the regular season?

    Like Paul Hogan in Crocodile Dundee - better than average.



    In addition to being the best team in the country, the bookmakers' favorite to win the College Football Playoff has an easy schedule. It'll be late October before the Buckeyes face a team in the top-50 of our Power Rankings (Penn State – who just lost to Temple). The only real obstacles come at the end of the season against Michigan State and Michigan. Though Ohio State is greater than 70 percent likely to knock off Sparty and 85 percent likely to beat the rival Wolverines.

    With eleven regular season games remaining, the Buckeyes are 53.3 percent likely to go undefeated.

    12-0 is not just a real possibility for Ohio State, it's more likely than not.

    Note: the No. 2 (Baylor) and No. 3 (Alabama) teams in our Power Rankings are not even favored in every remaining game on their respective schedules, let along greater than 50 percent likely to go undefeated.

    Will Ohio State Go Undefeated?

    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.
