The Ranker Slays in Week 7 – Prediction Results

The Ranker slayed ESPN’s FPI and Jeff Sagarin’s ratings in Week 7’s picks against the spread.

Last week’s results

The Ranker also did well with last week’s upset picks:  5-5, 50%.

The Ranker’s high confidence picks were not impressive (12-12, 50%), which led me to take a closer look at the data.  I’ve found a better set of parameters to identify “high confidence” picks moving forward.  These picks were 5-2 (71%) last week, 24-10 (71%) on the season.
