As soon as an NFL, college football, NBA or college basketball game reaches halftime, we simulate the game 50,000 times utilizing our Live ScoreCaster
technology. Live ScoreCaster is a blend of the live play-by-play feed and the state-of-the-art PredictionMachine.com "Predictalator" simulation engine. Remember, the halftime line is not necessarily a true line on who the oddsmakers think will win the second half. Vegas halftime lines are typically used to close the gap on any exposure the book may have from full game action on each individual game, thus creating line inefficiencies and opportunity for PredictionMachine.com subscribers.
In the picks below, the margin represents the projected scoring margin in the second half only. Similarly, the projected total points represent the results of simulating the remainder of the game from the start of the 3rd quarter until the game ends. Just customize the Predictalator to find the expected results, picks and play value recommendations of the remaining game at your lines.
to our weekly, season-long and/or halftime-specific picks
packages are able to access this dynamic new tool to find exploitable value in halftime lines. As mentioned above, halftime picks can yield more expected value than full game sides and totals. Please adhere to the Play Value Calculator recommendations.
: Halftime picks will be available as soon as possible; however, not always immediately when the game goes to halftime.
