Ryder Cup: Head to Head Picks by the Golf Engine

We take a break from football to bring you a golf engine which uses machine learning to evaluate 1,500 different statistics for every golfer on the PGA Tour over each tournament since 2004. The analysis of this massive dataset provides an opportunity to predict players that are due to go low.

We take a break from football to bring you a golf engine which uses machine learning to evaluate 1,500 different statistics for every golfer on the PGA Tour over each tournament since 2004. The analysis of this massive dataset provides an opportunity to predict players that are due to go low. 

The engine looks at how each statistical set contributes to what we can expect from players on this stage, at this tournament. It’s a complex web of information that can only be properly analyzed by a math engine, yet yields some objectively surprising results.

The United States carries a heavy advantage in the 2018 Ryder Cup as seen by the Las Vegas Odds. This is neither surprising nor out of the ordinary going into this event. The majority of the best players in the world, its professional tournaments and money in the sport come from the US.

The Europeans do however carry a lot of pride for inventing the game. And, tend to enjoy embarrassing the US on a semi-annual basis, regardless of how stacked the odds always seem against them.

We suspect this year will be no different, and in the end, it will be a very close and exciting tournament even though the US should walk-away cleanly with the Cup (spoiler alert – they won’t, drama inevitably to ensue).

Should make for a fun weekend regardless as this is so-much-more than a golf tournament and there a nearly unlimited possibilities for prop-bets out there.

How the Golf Engine makes its picks

We use machine learning to evaluate 1,500 different statistics for every golfer on the PGA Tour over each tournament since 2004. The analysis of this massive dataset allows gives us an opportunity to predict players that are due to go low.

The machine learns how these statistics can become a unique strength or glaring weakness for each golfer by comparing tens of thousands of different combinations and separating the patterns from the noise.

The resulting ‘model’ is able to ‘deep dive’ and determine when to expect low rounds from a pro, given their unique style of play. These calculations are next to impossible to do quickly and certainly without personal and subjective biases, until now.

NFL Week 4 Thursday Night Football Props: Vikings vs. Rams

At the beginning of the season, there were many who firmly believed that tonight's matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Los Angeles Rams would be a preview of the NFC championship game.

The Rams are currently tied for third in total points scored (102) and first in points allowed (36),  giving them the best

At the beginning of the season, there were many who firmly believed that tonight’s matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Los Angeles Rams would be a preview of the NFC championship game.

The Rams are currently tied for third in total points scored (102) and first in points allowed (36),  giving them the best point differential(+66)  in the NFL by a long shot –  the next closest are the Ravens at +46.

Todd Gurley has recorded 4 touchdowns and 255 yards through three weeks, while Brandin Cooks has caught for 336 yards, but is yet to find the end zone.

If you live in New Jersey and want to open a legal sports betting account, click here.

The Vikings are one of four teams to start the season 1-1-1, an anomaly unto itself. While week one featured a strong performance against the 49ers as their defense recorded three interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Week 2 versus the Packers ended in a tie, but could have gone either way with Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson missing 3 field goals and Clay Matthews getting called for roughing the passer on a play that would have sealed if for the Packers.

And then there’s week 3. Anyone who follows the NFL was rightfully shocked by the Buffalo Bills 27-6 win in Minnesota, as the Vikings were a 16.5 point favorite.

Keep in mind, it’s still early in the season, and a win on Thursday would discard any fears had by the Vikings faithful.

The props below are available to BET NOW if you live in the state of New Jersey.

NFL Week 3 Props: Saints Falcons

Week 3 features the first of two meetings between NFC South foes, the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. Both teams present strong quarterbacks and top wide receivers.

Week 3 features the first of two meetings between NFC South foes, the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. Both teams present strong quarterbacks and top wide receivers.

Over the first two weeks, the Saints have been outscored by their opponents 66-61 (Buccaneers 2-0, Browns 0-1-1), while the Falcons have outscored their opponents 43-42 (Eagles 1-1, Panthers 1-1).

The Saints and Falcons both present strong passing games and a more than sufficient, run game. 

Freeman and Kamara have changed the way these two offenses have performed, considering their pass-catching ability.

Falcons’ Coach Dan Quinn says Freeman is day-to-day, so his status should be monitored, regardless of whether or not he gets the okay to play. Kamara, on the other hand, will look to continue his explosive play.

In week 4, the Saints travel New York to take on a struggling Giants team, and the Falcons host the Bengals who currently sit atop the AFC North at 2-0.

Here are a handful of player, game and team props for the New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons game.

Last week, Ryan Fitzpatrick and ex-Eagle DeSean Jackson connected for a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. After being down 20 points late in the 3rd quarter, Philly almost managed a comeback but fell short. This week, Carson Wentz returns as the starting quarterback to take on the Indianapolis Colts- and you can bet the Eagles are hungry. Last Time Wentz was on the field, he tossed for 291 yards and 4 touchdowns en route to a 43-35 win over the Rams.

Ryan Fitzpatrick on the other hand, has started this season with with 8 touchdowns, 819 yards, only 1 interception and a QBR of 151.5. He will look to continue his success this Monday night when the winless Steelers roll into Tampa Bay.

Patrick Mahomes is the only player with more (10) touchdowns than Fitzpatrick through week 2. The red-hot Chiefs will host the 49ers, who just bounced back with a win over Detroit.

How Prop Payouts Work

Prop betting is a growing product feature of the NFL betting menu. Prop bets can make up as much as 15-20% of overall NFL handle for online and mobile sportsbooks with a higher hold (profit) than side and total bets.

“Usually on a typical weekend we’ll have props on the Thursday, Sunday, & Monday night games,"

Prop betting is a growing product feature of the NFL betting menu. Prop bets can make up as much as 15-20% of overall NFL handle for online and mobile sportsbooks with a higher hold (profit) than side and total bets.

“Usually on a typical weekend we’ll have props on the Thursday, Sunday, & Monday night games,” said Jay Kornegay, Vice President of Race and Sports Operations at Westgate. “At times, we’ll have props posted on other marquee matchups. Each game will have 10-20 props. Most are on individual players and team props. A small percentage is head to head.”

Interactive Prop Odds Table
The interactive table below will enable quicker digestion of the risk and reward that comes with prop betting.

For example, a -200 line that means for every $200 you wager, you’ll win $100 (plus your $200 original bet amount). While the “plus money” side of the bet means for every $100 you wager, you’ll win $170 (plus your $100 original bet amount). This difference between wager amount on the favorite $200 (-200) and winning amount $170 (+170)on the underdog is called a 30 cent line.
