The Pi-Rate Ratings

September 26, 2013

PiRate Picks for September 26-30, 2013

Our 2013 picks have been mediocre to date, so when we warn you to realize you are getting what you paid for, take that to heart.  Last week, our picks finished 4-5, a minor loss, but still disappointing.  We have begun to notice certain trends, and we will adjust our picks to better follow what we think we have spotted.  We are going with 17 selections this week, and hoping we can at least finish 10-7.


Our three computer ratings have begun the season with an accuracy rate slightly higher than a typical year.  Check out the table below, but take note: even we do not rely on these computer ratings to pick games.  Overall, the computer ratings may do better than human selection, but that is in theory only.  Nobody can play every game, and the only way to match the computer ratings is to play every game.  Once you become selective, the human element is back in the decision-making process.
