Apparently Algorithms Work

Last week we saw the guessing of the PFN experts climb to an impressive 151-89 for a .639 winning percentage, raising the season total to 411-309 for a .570 clip of guessing correctly. Leading the way this week was super geek EDDO, since it’s obvious that it wasn’t his football expertise that led him to a 13-2 record this week, we can only surmise that he must have come up with some computer algorithm, in his basement, which accurately picks the outcome of games. Right behind EDDO was the old prognosticator himself ProTime, with a 12-3 record. ProTime also took over the season lead at 31-14. The crystal ball was not so kind to our surprise week two front runners BillNJean, they went 6-9 slipping down to a tie for 7th place.

On to week four’s speculation: Doesn’t look like there will be much movement in the standings with the gang all picking North Penn-Dunmore-Upper St. Clair-Penns Manor-Clearfield-Saint Mary’s to win and in 3 other match ups the panel is 15-1 for the “favorite.” If the past is any indicator of the future, it looks like 3 of the 9 heavy favorites could be in trouble.

The most competitive games on this week’s docket are the Harrisburg @ Cumberland Valley game and the Roman Catholic @ Malvern Prep contest. The PFN panel of Jimmy the Greeks, are split pretty evenly on these marquis match ups. With many of the teams opening up league play this week, bitter rivalries will begin to be played making the guessing a little tougher. Follow along and see if you can beat the experts picks!
