Oi Vey.......another craptastic week for the underdog selections the computer made, going 1-3. Favorites came up 4-3 for at least something positive.
I have been working on the Underdog formula all weekend, and god knows it wasn't fun trying to find a winning computation out of this year. I have had to run so many simulations until I finally got a formula which has gone 4-0 this year....everything else I ran came up with a losing record or even less picks. What does that mean...well it means the parameters are so tight right now, that there isn't even a selection this week that falls into the formula. I will have to re-visit again after this weekend, to see if I can loosen it up again, but it really isn't looking like it right now.
So on with the computer picks for WEEK 5:
Underdog Selections: YTD (wk 3/4) 1-8 (looowwww %)
Favorite Selections: ytd (week 3/4) 7-5 58.3%
Alabama -9.5 vs Florida
Boise St. -41.5 vs New Mexico St.
UCONN -7 vs Vandy
Pitt -19.5 vs Fla International
TCU -33 vs Colorado St (finally the computer is on the other side..though they did hit last week)
UTEP -14.5 vs New Mexico
USC -11 vs Washington (Home field should help them some)
And now for your viewing pleasure I have been working on a formula for predicting OVERS for the last 4 weeks. For the season it has went 12-2 for me and went 5-0 last week (thank god cause I lost money on my other bets). So.....I would like to put the OVER picks on here, and give it the old Covers jinx and see if it can keep up with what it is doing. Again, only 4 weeks of using this new formula, but it looks pretty solid so far.....let's see how she do. Next project will be an UNDERS program....do i really have time to do all this.....probably not, but sleep is over-rated.
OVERS PREDICTION FROM THE PUTER:
FLA ST/ VIRGINIA OVER 48
VA TECH/NC ST OVER 55
PENN ST / IOWA OVER 42
As always best of luck to you all, may your wagers be large and your losses non-existent!
