I finally got a decent week out of the models. Hooray! Here’s how it went down.
Bill Simmons went 9-6 to continue his solid year. His overall record is 95-79-2. Luigi kept even with a 9-6 week as well, but still lags with an overall record of 82-92-2. Yoshi 1 did worse at 7-8, giving it an overall record of 80-94-2. And Yoshi 2 went 8-7 for an overall record of 76-98-2. So a decent week, but still a crummy year.
Against the SBR lines, Luigi went 8-6 to just barely get back on the plus side of .500 with an overall record of 61-60-5. Yoshi 1 went 7-5 for an overall record of 56-68-5, and Yoshi 2 went 8-6 like Luigi to move its record to 53-69-5. The models agreed on a somewhat unusually high number of games this week and did well with them, going 7-4. The consensus picks are 37-40-4 on the season.
Finally, Luigi went 3-2 on SuperContest picks to get to a season total of 27-33. Yoshi 1 went 2-3 for a total of 27-33, as Luigi has finally caught up. Yoshi 2 also went 3-2 for an overall record of 29-31 to lead the group. Sadly enough, getting within shouting range of .500 is a good sign.
