The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times and has crushed human experts on a consistent basis.
SportsLine's proprietary computer model went 176-80 straight-up last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool players in 2016 and '17. 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 have followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.
The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018, entering Week 17 on a blistering 16-6 run. For the season, it is now 30-15 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 78-49. And when it comes to all straight-up picks, the model is 159-78 on the season, ranking in the top five on NFLPickWatch.com. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now it has simulated every snap of Week 17 of the 2018 NFL season and the results are in.
We can tell you the model says the Ravens (-6.5) cover the spread against the Browns as they look to wrap up the AFC North. Baltimore's Week 16 win over the Chargers, coupled with the Steelers' loss to the Saints, put the Ravens in control of their own destiny entering the final week of the regular season. Even against a much-improved Cleveland squad, the model projects the Ravens roll to a big win that covers the spread in almost 60 percent of simulations. The Over (40.5) also has plenty of value because that hits in well over half of simulations.
The model also has a strong pick for the season-defining matchup between the Colts and Titans, and is calling for a Super Bowl contender to go down hard this weekend, shaking up the NFL playoff picture forever. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before you lock in your own picks.
So which team should you back in Week 17 of the NFL season? And which contender goes down hard? ... Join SportsLine right now to see which teams are winning more than 50 percent of simulations, all from the model that outperformed 98 percent of experts the past two seasons!
