Week 1 results were mixed a bit. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers crushed the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but neither the Buffalo Bills nor the Dallas Cowboys could collect enough points to cover the spread, let alone win. As the season progresses, the underlying statistics that feed our weekly projections get a larger sample size and, therefore, a better understanding of weekly matchups.

Our competition projection formula helps determine how often one team beats the other team on the basis of actual and expected profit percentages. That gives us win opportunities for every game, as well as an implicit profit margin – useful for choosing games against the spread.
