NFL Week 18 Picks
The Bischoff Model ended with great a season, correctly picking 172 games for the 2014 year. Comparing itself for its main peer, Nate Silver’s Elo, it was just 4 games behind with Elo predicting 176 correct games. Microsoft’s Cortana lagged a little behind with only correctly predicting 170 correct games. To Cortana’s credit, it did a great job the last 3 weeks, tying the Bischoff model in Week 15 and leading the pack the Week 16 as well as Week 17.
