Beat 538 NFL Forecasts

Postby WrigleyField 22 » Tue Sep 18, 2018 6:04 pm

Not exactly fantasy, but close enough. Anyone else doing this?

I'm somehow in the 90th percentile in rankings right now, but its basically purely luck/intuition at this point as I haven't used spreads or anything else to educate my guesses. Still, gives another fun thing to track during the games on Sunday.

That is pretty cool. BTW 538 is very down on the Bears, have them as underdogs this week as well as vs Seattle.

538's ELO ratings are NON SENSE.

I believe at this point they are still heavily weighted by last years scores.
