Bias Free Sports computer predictions for opening playoff games

On now to the “second season” of the NFL, and we have run the computer projections for this weekend’s games. I am on the road, so I can’t post things the way I normally would, but you can get the full projections at http://www.biasfreerankings.com/NFL_Ratings.html.  Here, though is a brief summary of our picks for this weekend’s games:

Cincinnati @ Houston:  Cincy by 9.9 (I will be at this game)
Minnesota @ Green Bay: Green Bay by 5.2
Indianapolis @ Baltimore: Baltimore by 6.6
Seattle @ Washington: Seattle by 11.8

I feel most confident in the Baltimore and Green Bay games. Seattle and Washington are both hot teams right now, and Washington hasn’t had a home playoff game in a long time, so that place will be rocking. I could see that one going either way despite the large computer edge. Similarly, Cincinnati is coming to Houston on a hot streak while Houston is in a major funk. Strangely is similar to what happened last year as Houston lost its last three games entering the playoffs and still won by 21 over the Bengals in front of a ramped up crowd. So we shall see.

Today’s sports trivia:
Minnesota and Green Bay have played against each other 103 times in the regular season, but this weekend marks only the second time they have played each other in the postseason. The first, an opening round game in 2004, was won by the Vikings 31-17.

New Year’s Day Computer Predictions from Bias Free Sports

Happy New Year everyone!  Hope you all had a safe and happy new year’s eve (and you’re not hurting too much this morning!).   I’ve taken a look at the games over the next few day, and disregarding what the computer says, here are the teams I like today:

Oklahoma State vs. Purdue — Oklahoma State by 20Northwestern vs. Mississippi State — Northwestern by 4
South Carolina vs. Michigan — South Carolina by 6
Georgia vs. Nebraska — Georgia by 13
Stanford vs. Wisconsin — Stanford by 3
Florida State vs. Northern Illinois — NIU in an upset by 1

We’ll publish all our updated computer ratings after today’s games.  Remember you can go to www.biasfreerankings.com for all the ratings for the NCAA football teams, as well as ratings for the NBA and NFL.

Bias Free Sports’ NFL computer predictions for Week 17

At last, the end of the regular season, and with it, some teams (and their fans) can finally be put out of their misery, like Arizona, Jacksonville, Kansas City and Buffalo.  The best part of the year, the playoffs, begins next week, and we’ll continue our computer predictions right through to the Super Bowl.  You can get all our NBA, NFL and NCAA football predictions for free (it’s not a subscription service trying to have you buy Vegas picks!) at www.biasfreerankings.com.  Here is what our computer spit out for this weekend’s NFL games (remember a positive number in the difference column means the home team is favored, a negative number means the visiting team is favored, and the home field advantage of 3 points is added in already):
