Part 1 – Statistical Handicapping

NFL and NBA pointpread selections on POINTSPREADWINNERS.COM are the result of a statistical handicapping approach. It is a two step process. Step one compiles and analyzes various statistics. But it is not merely the statistics, it is the algorithm in the statistics that combines and weighs the statistics to calculate a net rating or how much better one team is relative to its opponent from a statistical standpoint. Armed with an accurate and functioning algorithm, step two compares historical pointspread outcomes for the actual pointspread of the game and the calculated net rating between the opponents. If the game’s net rating at the posted pointspread has exhibited certain compelling pointspread outcomes in the past, a pointspread selection can result.
