    Conference Championship Projections

    Last Updated: 1/22/2017

    The Predictalator has run every Conference Championship game 50,000 times. This allows us to rank all players based on their expected fantasy football output in the upcoming game. For salary cap leagues, we have added $/FP to uncover players with the greatest value. Salary values represent the cost per projected fantasy point for default public leagues in DraftKings.com and FanDuel.com, two of the top websites that specialize in daily fantasy sports games.

    General league settings (6 points for a TD, 1 point per 10 rushing and receiving yards, 1 point for 25 passing yards) are used to rank players. We have provided separate rankings for leagues that use that type of scoring plus one point for a reception (PPR).

    Check out the Optimal Daily Fantasy lineups for the week here and build customized projections and lineups with interactive Daily Fantasy Sports tools here.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    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.
