Last week, reader Rob C noticed a trend within the model, where picks in which the spread is 3.5 or less and the Drive and Metric models agree are 21-2 (.913). I will start noting games in which these conditions are met in in italics. Here are my model’s picks for this week:

Game Drive Pick Metric Pick QBR Pick
LAC @ KC (-3.5) KC -3.5 LAC +3.5 KC -3.5
HOU (-6) @ NYJ NYJ +6 HOU -6 HOU -6
CLE @ DEN (-3) DEN -3 DEN -3 CLE +3

ARI @ ATL (-8.5) ATL -8.5 ATL -8.5 ATL -8.5
TB @ BAL (-7.5) BAL -7.5 BAL -7.5 TB +7.5
DET @ BUF (-2.5) DET +2.5 DET +2.5 DET +2.5
GB @ CHI (-6) CHI -6 CHI -6 GB +6
OAK @ CIN (-2.5) CIN -2.5 CIN -2.5 OAK +2.5

NE (-2) @ PIT PIT +2 PIT +2 PIT +2
PHI @ LAR (-10.5) LAR -10.5 LAR -10.5 PHI +10.5
NO (-6) @ CAR NO -6 NO -6 CAR +6

Methodology:
Drive Method: Uses average drive statistics such as Points per Drive and TD%
Metric Method: Uses advanced metrics such as SRS and EXP
QBR Method: Uses win statistics and team QB Ratings

Consensus Picks:
ATL -8.5
DET +2.5
WAS +7
(I would stay away. WAS has been a consensus pick for the past three weeks due to Mark Sanchez not being accounted for in the models)
TEN +2.5
SEA -4.5
PIT +2
