    With a new season ready to kick off, we decided to take a look at some of the top Over/Under win total lines and pick Analyst picks for the 2017 College Football Season:

    Alabama Crimson Tide O/U wins: 10.5

    All eyes will be on sophomore QB Jalen Hurts as the Crimson Tide are projected to do what they do every year -- win double-digit regular season games. They're favored in every scheduled game this season, with ESPN power index indicating they have greater than a 75 percent chance of winning in 10 of the 12 simulated regular season contests.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

    Clemson Tigers O/U wins: 9.5

    Anyone expecting the Tigers to have a major drop off better think again. No Deshaun Watson, no problem as the roster brings back a slew of offensive and defensive lineman to ensure continuity. QB Kelly Bryant should be just fine, even if all he has to do is manage games and let the defense take over. With guys like Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence, Clemson's defense just might be the best unit on that side of the ball nationwide.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

    Washington Huskies O/U wins: 10.5

    Led by QB Jake Browning, the Huskies are projected to have a strong regular season campaign -- despite losing John Ross to the NFL. They have a well-balanced receiving corps, a strong running attack with RB Myles Gaskin, and recruited well in the offseason to make up for some losses on the defensive side of the ball.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

    USC Trojans O/U wins: 9.5

    With five starters -- three offensive lineman and two receivers -- from last year's starting lineup gone, can QB Sam Darnold keep up his level of play? Analyst's Pick: UNDER

    Michigan Wolverines O/U wins: 9.5

    This is an interesting one. In the same way other programs are benefited by returning certain starters, the Wolverines should struggle since only two of 13 starters on the defensive side return this season. The roster's just so well coached, though, and given the balance they had last season in the air and on the ground, it's tough to pick against them.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

  • Accuscore’s Championship Season 2019/2020 Preview

    Promotion hopefuls and big disappointments

    The UK boasts one of the World’s toughest football leagues, the Championship at least if asked from the British followers. Second tier to the fabled Premier League, it’s a stepping stone for many players and clubs as well. Season is as tough as it gets, with 46 games played in 9 months – but there’s more. Two top teams win straight promotion to the Premier League but the teams seeded 3 to 6 get to play a gruesome playoff-series to figure out the final promotion spot. For many, the Championship’s playoff’s and especially the final, is the true pinnacle of the footballing season.

    Whilst Championship lacks the big-money signings and the glory that Premier League is known for, the intensity and the quality of play is surprisingly high in the second tier. Almost every season there are big surprises and massive disappointments – exactly what makes a league worth following. Last season’s dark horse were the winners Norwich, predicted 11th by bookmakers (and 16th by us…) while the biggest favorites Stoke City fell to 12th. None of the promoted teams were predicted top-6 by the bookmakers nor Accuscore. Let’s see if we can improve this time around!

    Accuscore's Championship 2019/2020 Preview

    Accuscore’s Championship Analysis

    As we’ve previously pointed out, Championship is hard to predict and not even the bookmakers have solved the puzzle. There are a couple of interesting differences between the bookmakers’ assessments and Accuscore’s simulations that we’d like to point out. While it’s difficult to pick one team to win it all, there are loads of outright options to choose from. We take a look at the most attractive odds for promotion candidates as well as one team that looks like a good pick to go down.

    Attractive odds for Promotion



    Brentford have been almost there for many season, bubbling under but never quite the favorites. They were a disappointing 11th last season, but managed 3rd best record at home. Goes without saying that replicating their home form to away would already be enough, but they’ve also grown a tad stronger in all areas and more remarkably the young stars such as Neal Maupay are still around. Brentford are young and ambitious so look for them to make a push for promotion through playoffs if not straight. They’re valued at 5.50 to win promotion and we do like that!


    Another team that has left their fans ripping hair out of their head for more than once. Last season they were touted in top 4 but fell to 9th and another managerial victim was produced. Current manager, Sabri Lamouchi is a huge question mark, but the players at his disposal are better than the results last season indicated. They’ve lost a couple of players but brought in interesting names as well. Nottingham is a definite dark horse, but they might just fade away if Lamouchi doesn’t get a flying start. It’s more of a longshot, but Forest is placed only 10th by bookmakers while Accuscore’s simulation push them to 7th. There’s nice value in punting for promotion with odds of 8.00!


    Getting a bit repetitive, but Middlesbrough crashing out of top-6 last season was a massive surprise to everyone. Tony Pulis did a decent job, but it just wasn’t enough for promotion-hungry M’boro. Assistant Jonathan Woodgate has everything to lose, but the team looks competitive and the starting XI is arguably top-6 quality. Good mix of experience and raw talent, but not much depth. There could be more to come from the transfer market, but we like Middlesbrough in the playoffs, which is three spots higher than the bookmakers. After that, everything’s possible and the odds of 7.00 for promotion is too good to pass by.


    Bottom feeder club


    All due respect to Luton Town, who fought their way back to the big stage after going practically bankrupt more than a decade ago. Scraping through League One is one thing, but Championship is a whole new ball game for too many of Luton’s players. They have acquired a handful of experienced, quality players, such as Calum McManaman, Martin Cranie, Ryan Tunnicliffe and Jacob Butterfield, who just might be enough to pull first-time-manager Graeme Jones’ squad out of the relegation battle. The Accuscore simulation engine is not that merciful though, and Luton drops five places compared to bookmakers’ assessment. With these odds of 5.50, we’ll go for the jugular!

  • Accuscore’s predictions: Liga MX 2019 Apertura

    LIGA MX gets a head-start to season 2019-2020

    The Mexican football league Liga MX kicks-off our football season for 2019/2020. This season the league boasts 19 teams instead of previous 18 and 170 games are played in the Apertura phase of the season. Last season’s top teams in Clausura were Tigres, Leon, Club America and Monterrey and it comes as a no surprise those clubs are once again predicted on top. It’s not unusual, though, that the Apertura-phase is not as easy to predict as it would seem.

    Here’s how Accuscore’s simulation engine predicts the first part of the season to pass:

    Accuscore's Liga MX 2019 Apertura Standings

    Accuscore’s analysis

    The top of the table features the usual suspects and there’s not much difference between the oddsmakers and Accuscore’s predictions. In top-8, meaning the playoffs-positions, there’s only one team difference, as Pachuca takes the place of Pumas at 8th.

    All in all according to Accuscore simulations, the Liga MX Apertura phase is very much as the oddsmakers have it planned and there’s no room for big surprises. We’ll have a closer look after the 170 games are played and Liga MX heads to Apertura Playoffs!

    NBA Futures: 2017-18 Win Totals for Every Team

    AccuScore's NBA Side Value Picks were over +10,900 last season, and AccuScore has picks against the spread, on totals, on moneyline and, of course, on side value for every game: NBA Picks

    The 2017-18 NBA season is here, and AccuScore simulated out every game 10,000 times to project out win totals for every team, and as we're accustomed to doing, we placed those win totals next to Las Vegas' win totals lines so that you can see the best value bets according to the AccuScore computer. Notably, the computer believes the Golden State Warriors will win 70 games, meaning the Warriors will become the first team to cross the 70-win mark multiple times, and the computer projects the Warriors to hit those all-time heights twice in a three year span.

    Also, the computer is down on the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks, with the three biggest markets in the NBA projected to feature four teams that all fail to hit 30 wins on the season. Chicago is projected to finish with an NBA-worst 20 wins, while the Lakers and Knicks rebuilding jobs have two of the NBA's marquee franchises handing in the 26-28 win range.

    Boston is projected to win 60 games and lead the Eastern Conference in wins for the second straight year, and Cleveland is projected to finish second. As a note, these projections came before Gordon Hayward's horrific injury, but Boston finishing above Cleveland in the regular season was the computer's preseason pick, so we'll stick with it.

    Out West, the Warriors are the best team in the league, but San Antonio has competition with Houston, Minnesota and Oklahoma City all projected to win over 50 games and stack up the Western Conference Playoffs.
