Bearing in mind the model is left with using last season’s data with only a few player updates and a modified home/away protocol (ie. no fans), a poor ATS result could be expected. However, the fact that it did pretty well straight-up, going 11-5 (Vegas line favorites only went 6-10 SU) indicates the model is performing adequately; needing only to squeeze out more reliable MOVs. It won’t be until the Week 4 projections that it will have enough 2020 data run on current numbers alone, so keep that caveat in mind. Also remember that these initial projections Week 2 are based largely on players who started last week, and do not take injuries into account. Thursday’s post will include the first injury updates.
