GRIDLINE By The Numbers presents a no-nonsense, purely scientific approach to football handicapping. All of the statistical listings and game projections on this site are 100% computer generated.
The GRIDLINE philosophy is based on the belief that trends and biases are not condusive to successful sports handicapping. While intuitive reasoning can be effective over short periods of time, success in the long run requires detachment from one's emotional tendencies. Where sports handicapping is concerned trust your brain, not your heart.
The GRIDLINE forecasting algorythm is based on the theory that a teams personality, its strengths and weaknesses, are reflected in the statistical breakdowns of their past performances. By analysing statistics and comparing them with corresponding statistics of their opponents, a final score can be projected that will approach the actual game score if both teams play to form. It may sound simple but it isn't, the algorythm features linear algebra and the algebra of matrices, differential equations and calculus of several variables.
