Week 1 Pre-Season Picks
The T.L.C. Picks
Game outcome picks for Week 1
If you have been following me for a few years, you know a couple of things about my pre-season picks. 1) They are done using only three variables I created: Talent, Location and Coach Effect (TLC rankings). 2) I do all my picks in March and April and don’t change them and 3) it is has been the most accurate national game-by-game pre-season predictor over the last 7 years.
The 2014 season was the best the predictions have every done with my picks to win falling only 7 games behind the Las Vegas opening favorites for the entire season. The ultimate goal would be to have my picks, using only TLC, finish with a better record than the week to week picks of Vegas oddsmakers. Until that day happens, any season above 80% correct picking games 6 months in advance would be amazing.
