Week 1 by the Numbers...

Going to compile a handful of useful numbers from Week 1 starting with the opening/closing lines and results. If the favorite covered then the margin cell is positive and shaded blue, if the dog covered then the margin cell is negative and shaded red. If the total went over the margin cell value is positive and shaded blue, if the total stayed under, then the margin cell value is negative and shaded red. All lines referenced are from Pinny unless stated otherwise…

Looking ahead now to Week 2, let’s compare the lookahead lines from the offseason (as posted by CG Tech on May 7th) to the lines that were actually opened following the Week 1 results…

Using the change between the lookaheads and the actual opens, we can go back to the Vegas Power Numbers posted in the preseason and make adjustments…

And finally, although these numbers have no reasonable value in my handicapping it’s potentially interesting and I saved a screenshot anyway so I might as well post it, here were the reports percentages bet into the market mid-week from Sports Interaction…
