    January Big Board (01/13/16)

    Last Updated: 5/1/2016 1:00 PM ET
    January Big Board



    With the ending of the College Football Playoffs leading into the final weeks of the NFL playoffs, we have just a few months to go before the NFL Draft. Underclassmen who are eligible for the NFL Draft must declare by January 18th. We had a lot of movement on the Big Board this month, with a few new players making an appearance.

    Just one quarterback makes the Big Board this month, Connor Cook (Michigan State). Cook has the tools and efficiency numbers that suggest he would be a good pick-up in the latter half of the first round. Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch fell out of the Big Board rankings this month. Lynch will have a steep adjustment in learning an NFL offense, he also struggled significantly against stronger competition throughout his career

    Taking over the top spot on the board is Joey Bosa (DE, Ohio State), an absolute dominant player who can play at multiple positions along the defensive line. A dynamic pass rusher, for statistical comparisons, he is similar to current Oakland Raiders defensive standout Justin Tuck.

    One of the biggest risers in this month's Big Board is Michigan State offensive tackle, Jack Conklin, who had an impressive performance against Alabama. Conklin didn't surrender a sack or quarterback hits in the game, going against some of the most feared and dominating pass rushers in college football.

    We have four new players making their debut on the Big Board this month, taking the top spot amongst this group is hard hitting defensive back Mackensie Alexander (Clemson). Alexander tried to battle through some injuries during the National Championship Game. Though he couldn't finish the game, scouts have been aware of the shutdown corner from Clemson for a long time. Alexander is a true shutdown corner, opponents failed to score a touchdown all season when targeting him.

    Jared Goff (Cal) does not make an appearance on the board again the month. I will talk about this in greater detail as we get into our draft content, but basically he is strikingly similar to current St. Louis Rams quarterback Nick Foles. Both played in the same offense under the same tutelage (Sonny Dykes) and have similar production and efficiency metrics.

    A lot will change between now and the first pick of the draft. As it stands now, this is my Top-35 Big Board. We will update the board just a few more times as we get closer to the NFL Draft.

    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.
