Is there a way to back test results of the consensus picks?

looking to see what the winning % is and possibly apply a labby line to it

making a grand assumption that its over 40% win rate

 

any info would be great

For 10 straight days now I've blind tailed the top consensus pick and it's gone 7-3 and I've cleared two labby lines. Not bad.

Ironic some people advocate the opposite by fading the most popular pick.  But in the long term, some believe the average reachs roughly 50% for pointspreads.
