is the BPR?
Ben's Power Rating
The BPR is a
simple formula I devised. It uses some very basic game
statistics and allows me the ability to compare
the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two teams in an NFL game.
Now I can sit here and tell you that this is some big badass computer formula that
takes hours of calculations and a massive computer to produce some magical numbers, but that's bull. It usually takes about
an hour of my time and a good calculator to compute these figures. I know
this all sounds so simple and too
good to be true, but it works. Don't be a fool, 54% winners the
last 10 years!
This is the 12th year
I will be using these numbers and the first two I wasted, sitting on the
sidelines, because I just couldn't believe something so simple could come up
with such consistent winners. Now, I don't want to sound like one of those idiot
touts that says you're going to be a huge winner every week, that's impossible
and if you're dumb enough to believe them, you deserve the bath you're going to
take. This system works over the long haul. Most weeks you will win or break
even, but there will be some losing weeks too. The BPR
but the trick to cashing is to use good money management.
Each Wednesday, I will post that week's NFL schedule along with the BPR
numbers. All you need to do is compare the BPR
number to the point spread, for each NFL game. If there is a difference of 4
points or more, in one team's favor, than that's a Potential
week the BPR produces 3
to 10 Potential Plays, your job is to narrow these
potential picks down to a few select favorites, in any way you see fit. It
canít get any simpler than that. You make your picks from a pool of
potential picks that are a proven 54% winner.
WARNING, DO NOT BET AGAINST THE BPR!
If you donít like the side the Power Rating picks, stay away from that
game. I learned my lesson the hard way on that one.
If you manage your money correctly, you can't help but have successful year. In fact, I used my winnings to take a wonderful trip to Hawaii
and the Pro Bowl. Take my
word for it, Hawaii is beautiful and I can't wait to get back. Thanks and Good Luck, Ben.
