Thanks for doing all this work. FWIW, I tracked all of the games last week, and against the final spread (as posted on Sagarin was 20-27 for a 42.55% win percentage. So, your weekly results are heavily skewed by the games you're picking (though your season results are more representative of the overall actual results). Also, I found a website called that shows historical performances of a ton of team-picking systems including the Sagarin Predictor.
