College Basketball Best Bets: 1384-1166-49 on a Star Basis for +94.25 Stars the last 5 seasons!

I have been very profitable on my College Basketball Best Bets over the years (+382.0 Stars the last 24 seasons) but starting with the 2020-21 season the College Basketball plays were based on a new model that tested incredibly well (832-636-29 for 56.7%) over the previous 4 seasons. The model was tested on seasons not used to derive the model to avoid back-fitting.

The first two seasons using that predictive matchup model produced good results on Best Bets (54.2%) despite winning only 44% of the close games (70-89-17 on Best Bets decided by less than 3 points) instead of the 50% expected in the long run, and being an unlucky 4-8-1 on games decided by overtime (instead of 9-4 on those games had they been graded at the end of regulation).

Had we won 50% of the close games and had those games altered due to OT (i.e. dogs not covering) produce the results they would have in regulation then we’d have been 55.7% winners the last two seasons, which is incredibly good in Basketball. The new model won despite the bad luck and I expect even better results in the future.

Last 2 Seasons with new matchup model: Best Bets are 515-435-17 and Opinions are 364-300-11

    The Day Pass is no longer available. The large majority of Best Bets I release to subscribers move out of Best Bet range after the release, so it’s a disservice to you to have a day pass selling plays that are not as likely to win. The 7-day pass will enable you to get the plays as they are being released.

New College Basketball Model

I have been very profitable on my College Basketball Best Bets over the years (+368.8 Stars the last 23 seasons) but starting with the 2020-21 season the College Basketball plays were based on a new model that tested incredibly well (832-636-29 for 56.7%) over the previous 4 seasons. The model was tested on seasons not used to derive the model to avoid back-fitting. The first season using that predictive matchup model produced very good results on Best Bets (55.7%) despite winning only 40% of the close games (bets decided by less than 3 points).
