Football Week 4
I picked great this week with 10 correct picks. The computer didn't do so well with 9 for the home team being the closest. Both the PPP algorithm and points scored technique got 8 of 14 correct. Just using the relative win/loss or the Power Ratings only picked 6 correct winners.
Overall for the season, the home team is still the best predictor followed by the expert Power Ratings and then points scored. Using my favorite mascots is the worst possible way as expected although it is at least as good as picking randomly.
I won't have access to a computer until very late Wednesday next week. So don't expect my witty analysis until Thursday.
