    Richner: Top Centers

    Last Updated: 10/14/2014 10:06 AM ET

    Top 5 Centers
    In looking for the next Jeff Saturday or Matt Birk, I try to focus on players who are good in both pass protection and run blocking skills. I also want to look for a guy who is a team leader and who has the experience in making calls at the line of scrimmage. Players such as Peter Konz and David Molk fit the criteria of the top centers in this year's draft.

    Top 5 Offensive Centers
    1. Peter Konz (Wisconsin)
    2. David Molk (Michigan)
    3. Ben Jones (Georgia)
    4. Michael Brewster (Ohio State)
    5. William Vlachos (Alabama)

    Center Overview: Konz is a three-year starter at center who excels in run blocking and has above average pass blocking abilities. Wisconsin ranked 11th nationally in rushing offense and has been one of the nation's top rushing offenses since he took over the center reigns three years ago... Molk is the type of player that you love on your team, but you hate to play against. His style reminds me of former Atlanta Falcon and Seattle Seahawks center, Robbie Tobeck. With 42 career starts, Molk led an offensive line that finished 12th in rushing offense last year. He has the ability to be a long term starter in the NFL... Jones, is a four-year starter who took Georgia's young, sophomore quarterback, Aaron Murray, under his wing and took charge of the offensive line. Jones is a very durable player who never missed a game at Georgia. I wouldn't be surprised to see him have a long career in the NFL... Brewster showed he can shut down some of the nation's elite interior lineman over the past four seasons. Brewster never gave up a sack or a tackle for loss to Penn State's Devon Still and was able to keep Michigan State's Jerel Worthy from making any significant impact in ames they played. A tough, dependable scrappy player, Brewster may be a bit of an overachiever... Vlachos is a three-year starter on a two time national championship team. According to the University of Alabama, Vlachos only missed eight assignments in 737 total snaps. He was responsible for making all the identification and calls up front. He isn't the most athletic specimen, but he consistently has been able to get the job done and produce at a high level against the nation's toughest defenses.

    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.
