That’s 5 straight-up losses in a row!
It’s one thing to lose against-the-spread, but picking game winners is something the model should, at the least, be able to do reliably. That’s especially true of the playoffs, when all the data and trends are available, and players are supposed to be playing at their peak performance levels. The numbers should be a reliable basis for accurate projections, but it’s not working out that way. Prior to the last few days, the model did have a good run, and probabilistically speaking, a regression was inevitable – but it flat out fell off a cliff, which is downright bizarre.
Anyway, proceed with caution.
