Excellent week: 39 for 53, or 73.6% accuracy! New predictions are up. This week, the algorithm continues to surprise, with lots of upset predictions. This includes a predicted OKC defeat of Atlanta tonight. Checking the dashboard for potential insight, we think this might be reasonable, given OKC’s excellent home record coupled with Atlanta’s relatively poor away record. You heard it here first folks.


Point-spread details of the past week are given below.
