Microsoft Cortana had a lackluster Week 16, correctly predicting nine of 16 NFL games.

It's now 158-82 (65.8%) on the year.

Cortana is a Windows phone virtual assistant that's predicting every NFL game with an algorithm from Bing Predicts. Bing started predicting sports results at the World Cup where it correctly picked 15 of the tournament's final 16 games.

The algorithm hasn't been as successful picking NFL games, but it's still going to finish the season with a respectable record. Nate Silver's ELO model is 165-75 (68.7%) through 16 weeks. Las Vegas betting favorites are 156-80-4 (65.8%). Cortana picks games straight up, not against the point spread.

In the final week of the regular season, the Bing Predicts algorithm can potentially crack 66% for the season and beat out the Vegas favorites straight up.



Here are Cortana's picks for Week 17 as of Tuesday afternoon. We'll update them throughout the week if they change (Vegas favorites in parentheses):

New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saints win, 64.4% chance (Saints -4)

So sick of hearing this machine's "predictions" about the Saints.

Well, I'd probably date her ... but there is the issue of a little virus I seemed to have contracted right around game time yesterday and the 80+ processes that slowed my laptop to a crawl, just sayin'. .
