    Big 10 (03/11/14)

    By John Ewing
    Championship Week – which teams will win automatic bids to the NCAA tournament? We simulated each conference tournament to find out.


     
    Conference tournaments are the unofficial start of March Madness. Over the next two weeks, single-elimination tournaments will be played with automatic bids to the NCAA tournament at stake.
     
    We have simulated each conference tournament using our Bracket Simulator to predict which teams will punch their ticket to the Big Dance. The Bracket Simulator is a free tool that gives you the power to simulate the postseason for any sport. Create your own bracket now!
     
    PredictionMachine.com has been very profitable in conference tournaments. All-time on the site, "normal" or better conference tournament picks are 84-54 (61% ATS and O/U), through 2013. For access to conference tournament picks, click here.
     
    When: March 13-16
     
    Where: Indianapolis, IN
     
    The automatic bid goes to: Michigan (28.2%)
     
    There isn’t much that separates the Wolverines from the Badgers or the other top teams in the conference, yet Michigan repeatedly found a way to best the conference during the regular season. John Beilein coached his team to a Final Four last year, a Big 10 title might be the first step in the same direction this year.
     
    And if they lose: Wisconsin (20.3%)
     
    The Badgers have an outside shot at a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament with non-conference wins against Florida, St. Louis, and Virginia. A Big 10 Tournament championship might be enough to earn that No. 1 seed.
     
    Bid Thief:
     
    Purdue: The Boilermakers are dead last in the Big 10, if they are going to participate in March Madness they will need to earn the conference’s automatic bid. After the big boys, Purdue’s odds are the best of the rest.

    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.
