2017 Week 5 NFL Spread Picks

Pick 1: Indianapolis -1.5 correct NFL point spread pick
Pick 2: Oakland -2.5 incorrect NFL point spread pick
Pick 3: Green Bay +2.5 correct NFL point spread pick

The computerized machine learning picks are running wild! While I continue to work on the important transition that will set us up for the next 10 years (using open source tools and better analytical algorithms) I can only put the top picks since I don't have the HTML output yet. I'm really hoping next week if I put the hours at night that I need to. Regardless, I'm excited to start the official picks this week with 3 picks I feel good about as you can see above. The other pick I didn't put is the Bears with their #2 pick on the draft starting Monday Night. Depending how things go during the week, I might add it.

As we have done in the past, we will start with a hypothetical $10,000 in the bank. We start the season soft betting only 15% of the bank and as the season progresses we increase up to 30%. This week we bet $1500 total distributed $500 per game. Lets start the season strong and let me know what picks you have, which ones you agree with and which ones you strongly disagree. Also, if there is another NFL game that you're confident in, please post it on the comment section.

Curious what libraries you are using ? What format are you trying to output to HTML?

SciKit learn for the models and simply a table format with some CSS on the rows. I might just put the html and do the CSS manually for next week.
