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 (playing or not playing/injured), coaches, officials, fans (home field advantage) and weather in each game.

7/21/2014 Highlight: Using the ResultsFinder for the last two weekends July 11th - 20th (since the All-Star break fell during last week), one could find that all playable over/under MLB plays went 26-17 (61% O/U).

The Predictalator plays every game 50,000 times before it's actually played. This provides us the ability to assign probabilities to the likelihood of just about any outcome occurring in any contest including straight-up, against-the-spread and over/under winners of each game.
