Well HEAVILY is a strong word.  My numbers show that Arizona isn't getting quite enough credit at -1.  I think oddsmakers are over-correcting this line.  The Rams offense just isn't good enough not to be catching a full field goal against the Cardinals - at least in their current form.

thanks for this, S1lly!
I was just wondering how much of a point differential btw what you project and a current line constitutes it as a 'pick'?  
For example, according to your sheet, you have Arizona valued at -3.  the line i'm seeing at my book is currently Ari -1.5.  Am I right in guessing that according to your stats, Ari would just be a lean since it seems to be pretty close to your projections?  How much of a point-differential in general makes it a good value in your opinion?

NFL lines are extremely tight.  Any sort of value is a good thing but I really start to pay attention when the value crosses a key number such as 0, 3, 4, 7, 10

So I'm guessing you're taking a long look at the 49ers and the Ravens?

Great sheets si1ly!
new to covers posting but have been following for a year or so..
I am working on something comparable with purely statistics to give ratings and the power ratings being contingent on the opposition also..
I was just wondering how you factor home field advantage into the model? I am currently working on past 5-10 years data to attempt to have a home field advantage for each team but also a home field 'disadvantage' for each team, based on how well teams travel..
All the best this weekend!

Si1ly, can you recommend any books (i.e. printed books, the kind you get on Amazon) on sports betting? I know they wont have the models in them or make anyone rich but I would like to learn more about the theory behind everything.

Few games I'm leaning on:

Indy +8
Denver +7 / ML
Baltimore -6
Cleveland +10 (-120)
Philadelphia +3.5 / ML
Seattle +3 / ML

49ers are in a look ahead spot.. might be better to pass on this double digit spread despite the line value in my model.

I manually adjust this number in each game each week as I see fit.  There's no scientific way to do this, but experience has given me a good feel for what this adjustment should be.

answer to the question: how do I quantify home field advantage?

Read some Bill James literature.

Looks like Covers deleted the link.  Why?

It appears that Covers has removed the hyperlink button from the post a reply widget.  They've also deleted all hyperlinks in all archived posts.

This issue appears to only be affecting the mains.  I've brought it to their attention in the help forum.. hopefully the problem is resolved soon.  

If the removal of the hyperlinks is intentional, I don't see what the problem is, I've been posting breakdown sheets in the MLB mains for several months with no issue.
