Following the Money
These are awesome! Thanks, Michael.
The floating boxes with extra info were a good addition. Hope the website will (or already is) getting the attention it deserves. Any plans for NFL and NBA tickers? I like their detailed graphs on teams' progression through the season.
Thanks Ben. Traffic has definitely picked up with the start of the NFL season, but is still pretty meager overall. I really appreciate the feedback and suggestions you've provided. Keep them coming.NBA and NFL tickers are just about ready to go. I should be releasing them soon.
They're awesome. Yeah, it does take time for even an excellent site to pick up traffic. Have you done any basic marketing? Like, say, letting people know at forums know about what you do and so forth?
Great work here!Question - can you work our HFA for each team from these rankings? Or are you using a blanket factor to get to these rankings?
I currently use a blanket factor of 2.5 points for all teams. I hope to take a look at home field advantage by team for a future post (similar to my BallPark Factors post for MLB).
Thanks for the info. Would be very interested in seeing that. nice work with the site
For office pool purposes which would yield a higher winning percentage?The ANS or the Team Rankings?
Since these rankings are just intended to duplicate the weekly point spreads, it's basically a question of whether the Advanced NFL Stats model can beat Vegas in an office pool format. Although I haven't done the exact calculations, I think Vegas wins out over the long run. But I can say that I won my office pool pretty handily in 2009 with the help of the ANS win probabilities.
