The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times and has crushed human experts on a consistent basis.
In a straight-up, pick'em format, our proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and 2017. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.
It finished Week 1 strong, nailing three of its last four picks, including backing the Jets (+281) on the money line in their 48-17 upset of the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
Now it has simulated every snap of Week 2 of the 2018 NFL season and the results are in.
We can tell you that the model is calling the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles (-3) to knock off Tampa Bay on the road. Nick Foles pushes for 300 yards and two touchdowns as the Eagles win straight up 62 percent of the time and cover in well over half of simulations.
It also has a strong selection for the AFC Championship rematch between the Patriots and Jaguars, and is calling for a top Super Bowl contender to get shocked on the road by a huge underdog.
So which teams should you back in Week 2 of the NFL season? Join SportsLine to see which teams are winning more than 50 percent of simulations, all from the model that has outperformed 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com the past two seasons.
