Cortana picks Cowboys

The Microsoft Engine That Nailed The World Cup Is Predicting Every NFL Game

Atlanta Falcons vs. Minnesota Vikings Falcons win, 56.6% chance (Falcons -3)
Philadelphia Eagles vs. San Francisco 49ers 49ers win, 58.2% chance (49ers -5.5)
New Orleans Saints vs. Dallas Cowboys Cowboys win, 53.3% chance (Saints -3)
New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs Patriots win, 67.4% chance (Patriots -3.5)
Cortana and Vegas disagree on three games: Saints-Cowboys, Bills-Texans, and Bears-Packers.

Say what? Cortana? Yahoo finance?

Are we looking at net profit or win/loss?

Re: Cortana picks Cowboys

Well its a bet against the spread, and the Saints are favored by 3, so its simply a computer taking the 3 points with a 53% chance of winning.

Saints win by 2 and the computer is right, Dallas wins

Re: Cortana picks Cowboys

I'm 31-17 and in a tie for first place in my pick group.

One must wonder tho, if a MAC engine would do any better?

The Microsoft strongly recommends these picks.

The Mac forces you to make these picks.

Therein lies the difference.

Google Now on Android formulated these picks by reading all emails and contacts of it's users for the past 7 years, selling them to a 3rd party who in turn predicted these picks based upon its finding.

Dude... I don't discriminate... I'm rocking IOS, Android, Microsoft, Linux. About the only thing I don't rock is "db errors" like the ones we see on certain bulletin boards from time to time.

What sucks is that Google is fully aware of this thread, knows where each of us live, and will likely report us to the FBI, CIA, ICE, and our mothers.
