    NFL Futures (1/14/14)

    By John Ewing
    After 50,000 simulations of the NFL Playoffs we find value in Super Bowl odds. Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.


     
    To determine if a team has value we look at what their current odds are to win the Super Bowl and compare that to our projected odds that they win the Lombardi Trophy. For example, Denver is listed at +210 to win the Super Bowl; in order for us to feel comfortable wagering on the Broncos they would need to win it all 32.3% (which is 100/(100+210)) of the time. We project Denver to win it all 28.5% of the time, meaning there is no value in placing a bet at +210 odds.

    Note: All against-the-spread picks for the 2013-14 NFL Playoffs are now 6-1-1 (86% ATS). All-time, NFL Playoff picks are 32-9 (78% ATS). For access to all of our Conference Championship picks please visit the shop.
     
    Seattle Seahawks (13-3, 1st seed in the NFC)
    Current odds: +200, Odds needed in order to place a wager: 33.3%
    Seattle wins the Super Bowl 42.1% of the time
     
    We encouraged you to take Seattle at 11/4 before the playoffs began and then again last week when the Seahawks were 5/2 favorites. Even though the Hawks’ odds have dropped there is still value in betting them to win the Super Bowl.
     
    Not only is Seattle our most likely champion but the bookmakers would currently favor them in either potential Super Bowl matchups.
    • Seattle vs. Denver, Seahawks -2.5
    • Seattle vs. New England, Seahawks -6
    Fun Stat
    In the last 14 years only two No. 1 seed from the NFC have won the Super Bowl: 1999-00 St. Louis Rams and 2009-10 New Orleans Saints.
     
    Below are the odds for each team to win the Super Bowl. Plus, odds needed to place a wager and our projected odds for each team.

    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.

    03/13/2017 Highlight: Using our ResultsFinder tool, it's evident that the Predictalator is entering March Madness in incredible form. The Predictalator posted 59 "normal" or better plays in March (plays with greater than 57% confidence) and went a stellar 36-23 (61.0%) on those plays. An average $50 bettor would have profited $678 using our recommended wager sizes. After posting an outstanding 8-1 (88.9%) ATS record on "normal" or better sides in last year's NCAA Tournament, the Predictalator looks poised to produce more NCAA Tournament winners.

    NBA predictions continue to follow the same heat wave of college hoops, as all playable sides are 30-25 (54.5%) ATS in the month of March. More importantly, top plays continue to produce at a staggering clip, with all "normal" or better sides off to a solid 9-3 (75.0%) ATS mark in March, producing $284 in profits for an average $50 bettor.

    The Predictalator's NHL picks continue to cash in consistenly as "normal" or better ML and PL plays are an outstanding 32-18 (64.0%) on the season, amassing $507 in total profits. While the betting market has really tightened up with NHL in recent months, the Predictalator continues to find success and is now 449-367 (55.0%) on all playable ML and PL plays this season.
