Week 11 and 2021 Season Results

2021 Best Bets 23-24 for +2.6 Stars

The week 11 Best Bets were 5-4 with both 2-Star Best Bets winning, and the profit was +2.55 Stars. The Strong Opinions were just 1-3.

The two 2-Star wins were on Kansas City -2.5 and the Baltimore-Chicago Under, which both won pretty comfortably. The other three wins were 1-Star on the Indy-Buffalo Over 49 points (56 points scored), a 1-Star on Washington’s team total over 20, which they got to early in the second half, and Tampa Bay -10.5 on Monday night (won by 20). The losses were all 1-Star Best Bets – on Buffalo -7 (even), the Green Bay – Minnesota Under 49 (65 points scored), Seattle -3 (-115), and a Teaser (-115) with Buffalo and Seattle. The Strong Opinion win was on the Thursday night New England-Atlanta Under 47.5 (25 points scored) and the losses were on Baltimore -6 (released before news of Lamar Jackson being sick), the Tennessee team total over 27.5 (only 13 points), and Green Bay -1 (lost on the final play by 3).

2021 NFL Best Bets are 23-24 for +2.6 Stars and the Strong Opinions are 21-17-1.

Obviously, this season has been a disappointment so far after winning 69% of the NFL Best Bets last season, but we’re still profitable on the Best Bets and the Strong Opinions and it was really that one horrible 0-7 week a few weeks ago that’s made the difference between a normal solidly profitable season and the barely profitable season we’re having so far. I expect to win given the long term record of the plays based on the current model.

The results since 2016, when I started using play-by-play data and advanced metrics, has been good on both Best Bets and Opinions.

2016-21 NFL Best Bets are 304-217-2 (58.4%)  – 163-99-2 on Sides, 109-90 on totals, 6-5 1st-half totals, 12-13 team totals, 13-9 teasers, 1-1 season win totals.

2016-21 NFL Strong Opinions are 203-161-9 (55.8%) – 87-88-7 sides, 75-57-1 totals, 1-1 1st-half sides, 4-1 1st-half totals, 7-7 Team Totals, 3-1-1 teasers, 26-6 Post-season prop bets.

Closing Line Value

The average closing line value on the NFL Best Bets in the 2021 season is +4.0%, meaning that playing our games at the release line makes you 4.0% more likely to win each play, on average, than playing them on the closing line, which is also a good indicator of our model. The average closing line value on our NFL Best Bets in the 2020 season was +3.4%

The Best Bets beat the closing line 83% of the time so far this season and 79% of the time last season.
