Raiders +13.5 x x
Buccaneers -13.5
Lions +10.5 x
Packers -10.5 x
Cowboys +1

This pick ’em experiment was to see how we would do against other sports minds who pick NFL games on a weekly basis.

Here is a comparison of CBS Sportsline and OWS:

CBS OWS
Harmon 129 126 Rory 136 107
Prisco 121 134 Kevin 128 100
Judge 138 117 Mike 120 123
Madden 129 126
Richard 142 113
TOTAL 659 616 TOTAL 384 330
Win
%age
0.516863 Win
%age
0.537815

Overall, we had the higher winning percentage; calculated as wins/wins+losses.

And if you look at our individual records they fit in with those over at CBS.

A couple notes; CBS always used lines that had no evenly rounded numbers. This takes away the dreaded 7 point and 3 point spread in favor of the much friendly 2.5 & 3.5 and 6.5. & 7.5. For this reason, they had zero pushes all season.

Any avid gambler would agree that the lines we used were more challenging.
