    Yes, there are many sites and software that offer solutions. Fantasy Labs and Bet Labs are two of the most popular.

    It's almost irrelevant to do back testing in today's day in age.

    Well, I guess that's not entirely true...

    Not much wiggle room in data analytics. Blow a little smoke and it's all wrong.

    Also, backtest with 2/3 and 1/3. Use 2/3 as data and 1/3 as backtesting. That's a rule of thumb.

    How much are you being paid to re-post these YouTube links and how much of that is being kicked back to someone in SBR? 350 posts in the last 7 weeks and about 250 of them are off-topic YouTube links. I guess people don't care. Strange. (Shrugs).

    Yeah, Betlabs if you want to test situational systems. Or https://sportsdatabase.com/.

    If you want to backtest custom power rankings or something, that's going to be a manual job.

    i dont back test i use the marc lawrence playbook to think of situations and heres what i use

    Teams best game of year Falcons game #1 at home when they get back in shape

    Cowboys worst games #13 and #16 like 85% ats losers

    How teams do switching roles which is after a s/u dog win do they cover as fav this is nuts almost all teams fail at 85%

    Bengals after up set Steelers -7.5 VS Jags NO Cover

    Bengals after historic blowout ever of Ravens flat out lost as big fav -7.5 at JETS

    NEXT thing i use is how do teams perform after scoring 100 + points like within 5 games

    Patriots are due for a loss soon as they get a team who is healthy with a almost winning record or winning record

    they now have won 6 games scoring 175 points and holding all teams to 50

    how teams fare after posting 40 + points in one or 2 games

    THEN BIGGEST one how do teams pay after beating top DIV rival or CONF rival or non Conf rival

    Teams after a TNF game playing home or away NOT many can win again or will lose again

    i rember my eagles after lsing to NYG 8 stroight games finall win one year Come home to Raiders 1.5 chalk and GOT smoked by Oakland

    bad too like 28 - 10
