UNU’s Picks: NFL Game Picks for Week 6

This post originally appeared on the UNU blog


Are you ready for some football?!

Thanks to everyone who has participated in the UNU Football Swarms so far! Week 5 was a solid week for the Swarm, posting a 7-5-1 official record, and then throwing in an almost perfect bonus pick on Monday night football. You can read about Week 5 HERE.

On to Week 6....

This week we had a very confident Swarm. In fact, as you'll see below, 10 out of the 15 games were chosen with High Confidence. And, unlike weeks' past, there was a much more equal split between Favorites and Underdogs in the Swarm's picks. Obviously, we're learning more about the teams every week, and the same is probably safe to say about UNU Football!

The results below are sorted by predicted Confidence and then by Brainpower. As always, I would encourage you to watch each games replay for a better understanding of how the Swarm arrived at its prediction. For example, lower brainpower could reflect a toss-up between the two teams, or it could mean that the Swarm was torn between High and Low Confidence in the pick.

Here’s a look at the replay from this week's most confident Swarm. As far as the Swarm is concerned, the Jets are simply not worth risking your hard-earned money on, especially on the road against a Cardinals team that sees Carson Palmer return from his first-ever concussion this week.

Swarm Intelligence UNU picks NFL winners for week 6

This should go without saying, but if you’re going to bet on football – or anything else, for that matter – be smart about it. UNU has a pretty good track record, but football is notoriously difficult to predict Against the Spread.
