So flip a coin?

In your predictions you don't have a single team this week scoring over 29 pts? And the highest scoring team is Miami with 29. Why is that?

I dont get how Seattle can be next to dead last (31) on defense when they just shut out Cards 58-0 ?

I think Seattle Defense is top 8..!

Seattle at 32 who gave 0 points to Arizona last week. Don't understand this ranking.

in this case, i agree, the bears will beat packers this week, SU.
Based on what? Gut instinct?  GB has dominated this series and have won every BIG game against Chicago.  It's for the division and against the Bears, GB won't come out flat.

Only way the Bears win is if GB gifts the game to the Bears by turnovers or it's a flag fest against GB like 3 years ago; big if's if you ask me.

My model accounts for turnovers, but only minimally.  And in the case where they could still be overweighted based on recent performances, there is an even greater limit put on them.  Turnovers are impossible to predict, and these often lead to quick, easy points (either by pick sixes, short field, etc).  Similarly, my model does not account for special teams at all - so a great punt return setting up a score, or a blocked punt, etc, are not included whatsoever in the model.  I feel completely justified in doing this, as picking the team with bad turnovers leading to points or big special teams plays would be a losing battle, by a long shot (even if the most turnover-prone team were to play the defense that forced the most).  So, I'm sure that my model understates scores to a certain degree.  That's why I've said that overs perform a bit better than unders in my model (which they do, based on past results).  But there are also cases where a turnover in the opponent's redzone can take points off the board, and there are certainly a large percentage of games without a key turnover or special teams play leading directly to points that otherwise were not "earned" through efficient offensive football.  So overall, while there is a certain factor that cannot be accounted for and inevitably accounts for an underweighting of scores, the significance is not by any means enormous, and I'm confident these projections are very accurate.

Plugging in the actual stats from last week's Ari/Sea game into the model gives a score of 34-1 Seattle.  A lot of points taken off the board for Seattle - directly as a result of the effects of the 8 turnovers (my model limits these).  Without a limit, the score would be projected 45-0.  But how often does a team turn the ball over 8 times in a game - this is clearly an outlier and no cause for alarm.

Good luck this week.

I think Seattle Defense is top 8..!


I agree - for the entire season I think Seattle definitely has a top 8 defense.  But not over the past 3 weeks, efficiency wise.  Certainly a shutout improves their ranking, but how much of the shutout was due to turnovers - and the system also takes SOS into account - how impressive is it for a top caliber defense to give up minimal points to a bottom dwelling offense (with the benefit of 8 turnovers no less).  The previous week, the far below average offense of the Bears was very efficient (9 YPA, 4YPR, no sacks allowed, etc, etc), and the week before that, a below average Miami offense performed similarly (9.5 YPA, 6.8 YPR, etc, etc).  This is where my model excels - in the face of bias (I'm not trying to insult you or anyone else at all - humans are biased - I'm the same way).  On the outside, everyone sees a 58-0, 8 forced turnover massacre of the Cardinals and thinks Seattle's defense is playing at an elite level.  They fail to remember the previous two weeks against inferior (even compared to the average) offenses, where that same defense allowed an average YPA over 9 (very high) and average YPR over 5 (very high) to go along with other poor defensive stats. 

I don't disagree that Seattle has a top level defense.  But I only care about how they're playing now.  And "now" doesn't mean the previous game that can be filled with almost entirely random noise (like 8 turnovers).  In my model, now means the previous three weeks, where Seattle has performed poorly, even if they had been facing above average offenses.  The fact that the two were far below average only drops them further in the rankings.  A shutout of one of, if not the worst offense in the league, helps their ranking, but isn't near enough to dig them out of the hole dug by their previous two showings against below average offenses.

I truly wasn't trying to sound arrogant or condescending, if I came across that way.  Good luck this week sir.

Defense has performed with a high efficiency the past three weeks.  The offense played very efficiently against a good Seattle defense, and turnovers have plagued their efficiency in the previous two vs Minnesota - neither of which were terrible performances.  My model limits the effect turnovers have as they are unpredictable.  Chicago's top ranking is based in large part to them being above average on both sides of the ball, over the past three, SOS adjusted.  Most teams are significantly deficient on one side or the other, which brings their overall ranking down.  The Bears previous three have been solid on both sides.  Most will look at the scores, see a 1-2 record against Seattle at home and Minnesota twice and call the Bears awful.  Efficiency stats (best suited to beat the spread over the long run, in my opinion) say otherwise.

Good luck this week sir.
