SportsFormulator Turns 5!

by Matt Fischer

SportsFormulator is 5!

SportsFormulator.com launched five years ago today! Thank you for being part of the journey over the past five years. Checking out the site, offering feedback and being a part of SportsFormulator.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

New Offerings

I’m excited to announce new offerings from SportsFormulator head in to week 6.  Our first offering is the SportsFormulator Insider program.

As a SF Insider, you will get detailed game previews and predictions for the big games of the day.  You can get a preview of it here.  Hopefully you think our information is worth 33 cents a day.  Take advantage of our sale during our anniversary week and become a SF Insider now.

Later this week, I’ll be launching a podcast.  Stay tuned for more information on the SportsFormulator podcast coming in November.

Free Picks

Check out a preview of what you’ll have access to as a SF Insider.  Here are free picks for tonight’s games.

Orlando Magic at New Orleans Pelicans (Pelicans -7.5, 225.5)

Tonight, the Pelicans host the Magic.  The Magic go to New Orleans on a back-to-back having lost Sunday night at Charlotte by 7 dropping their record on the season to 4-2.  The Pelicans have won 2 straight to get to .500 on the season with a 3-3 record.

Orlando has lost on the road this season twice, once by 5 and the other by 7.  Look for Orlando to keep this one tight in New Orleans.  Take the Magic +7.5.

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (Chiefs -7, 43.5)

Kansas City hosts their second Monday Night Football game of the seasonagainst AFC West rival Denver.  The Chiefs have had 10 days off since a questionable night of officiating in Oakland cost them their last game and gave them a two game losing streak.

The Broncos offense has been sputtering.  They were shut out by the Chargers last Sunday and only mustered 10 points at home the week before against the Giants.

The Broncos have averaged only 8 points per game while allowing 23.5  on the road this year.  The Chiefs have scored 23 and given up 19.7 on average at home.

With the way KC protects the ball, it’s hard to see them helping the struggling Broncos offense out with a short field.  The Denver defense will travel and have to put up points to help the offense if they’re to win this game.  Take the Under 43.5.

Thanks again for being part of the past five years.  Let’s win!
