The crowd had a rough week of best bets in Week 10, though we are still looking at different ways of identifying the best bets. I called out 4 leans directly on Sunday morning, and they all came up empty:
|Jets win by 2 over Bucs (spread: Jets +1)||Bucs win by 5|
|Packers-Bears Total: 34.4 (under 37.5)||Total: 39|
|Saints-Bills Total: 39.9 (under 47.5)||Total: 57|
|Giants-49ers Total: 35.8 (under 41.5)||Total: 52|
I left out a couple by mistake in our feed, so that was a little annoying. The crowd picked the Patriots to win by 10.3 (the spread was Patriots -7), and the crowd also predicted a pretty comfortable win for the Vikings with a 5.5-point margin (the spread was Vikings -1). Also, the crowd predicted a big 15-point win for the Seahawks (the spread was Seahawks by 6) that ended up pushing thanks to the screendoor cover.
Week 10 Best Bets: 2-4-1
We had a couple of solid weeks in a row, so it may have been expected that we would come down to earth at some point.
Other Best Bets
RP-Excel – 3-5
In Week 10, RP-Excel had a better week this week but was still under 50% for the week.
Vegas Insider – 1-4
The Westgate Super Contest consensus fell back again, missing on Buffalo +3, Jacksonville -3.5, Washington +1, and the Jets -2.5. The Rams -12 was their only correct prediction.
