Game Predictions 12/22/07

Crystal BallHeavy schedule of games on the slate as the teams get ready for the Holidays then the opening of Big Ten play. For hoops fans the big matchup is the Top Ten matchup between MSU and Texas, but the replay of last year’s national championship between Ohio State and Florida probably catches the general public’s fancy more.

The predictions:

  • Missouri 70 Illinois 66
  • Indiana 87 Coppin St 47
  • UCLA 76 Michigan 60
  • Michigan St 73 Texas 69
  • Minnesota 78 Santa Clara 60
  • Ohio State 65 Florida 62
  • Purdue 67 Iowa St 59
  • Wisconsin 74 Valparaiso 55

Note: My prediction algorithm is based on Ken Pomeroy offensive and defensive efficiency ratings. I use my own methodology to tweak his ratings based on where the game is being played, then calculate a predicted score using the adjusted efficiency ratings and the expected pace of the game.
