Frequently Asked Questions
    What factors can I use to determine matchup winners?
  • Winning % - Team with the higher winning percentage wins
  • Season Ends Today - All matchups end with a tie
  • Offensive Rank - Team that averages more yards per game wins
  • Defensive Rank - Team that averages less yards allowed per game wins
  • Last Matchup - Team that won the last matchup between these teams wins
  • Current Streak - Team that has a better win streak wins
  • Home Team - Home team wins

Do predicted results factor in projected outcomes?
