Wrong And Right(ish)

If you read Thursday's post, I'm sure you're aware that my spreadsheet predicted the New Orleans Saints would win their week fourteen game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Cue the Family Fortunes sound effect when a question is wrong.

The Falcons ended up covering the spread with a 20-17 win. At the time I shared the projection, they were one-point favourites.

On the plus side - if you can call it that - the spreadsheet correctly called for the game to go under the total, which  was 51.5.

As I always write when doing these posts, I hardly ever bet on Thursday night games. Had I had to pick one, I would have avoided the totals play because I thought it would have gone over.
