    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.

    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.
