An algorithm for the NFL is defined as a set of steps followed to solve a mathematical problem or complete a computer process. In terms of NFL betting that means using the data of the past to try to predict the future.
There are several statistics that could be used in a betting algorithm. Considerations might include:
- How a team typically does after a bye week?
- Do teams perform well as a home underdog?
- How do they perform as a favorite of more than seven points?
- How do teams perform the week after they play on Monday night, or after they play on a Thursday night?
Now these numbers that you get are not specific to one team it’s based on the entire league. So again, be careful.
But if the numbers that show up are 75 percent of greater it means something. So it might be worth a wager, or two, and some times you can find good value in those numbers.
