2017 - Round 8 Results - Everyone Takes Five

Five favourites won over the weekend, and all of the MoS Head-to-Head Tipsters joined BKB in scoring five out of nine for the round.

That left MoSSBODS_Marg at the top of the H2H Leaderboard, now on 46 from 72 (64%) and still one tip ahead of ENS_Linear and the two RSMP Tipsters.

MoSSBODS_Marg surrendered its position at the head of the Margin Predictor Leaderboard, however, its 32.9 points per game mean absolute error (MAE) the second-worst amongst its peers, better only than C_Marg, whose dreams of margin prediction glory this season seem all but over. Let's hope it recruits well in the off-season draft (modelling).

That number one spot belongs now to MoSHBODS_Marg who recorded a 30.4 points per game MAE, slightly better than the all-Predictor 30.9 points per game. It now sits just 2 points ahead of MoSSBODS_Marg.

The round's best MAE of 29.1 points per game belonged to 3rd-placed RSMP_Simple, who, as a result, narrowed the gap to MoSHBODS_Marg to just over 5 goals.

Six Margin Predictors now have season-long profitable line betting records: MoSHBODS_Marg, MoSSBODS_Marg, RSMP_Simple, Bookie_9, Bookie_LPSO, and ENS_Linear.

None of the Head-to-Head Probability Predictors fared very well this week, all of them racking up negative probability scores. Best though was Bookie-OE, which took top spot on the Leaderboard as a result, relegating MoSHBODS_Prob into second place.

The round's worst probability score belonged - for a change - to MoSSBODS_Prob, who now sits second-last on the ladder.


The two MoS models again worked to generate profits for Investors this week, MoSHBODS engineering a 3 from 7 and +4c result for the Head-to-Head Fund, while MoSHBODS sparked the Line Fund to grow by 2c with 2 collects from 4 wagers, and precipitated a 3c hike in the Over/Under Fund with and a 4 and 2 performance.

Combined, that meant a gain for the Overall Portfolio of just under 3c and lifting its price to $1.148. It also meant that, for only the second time this season, all three Funds are in profit at the end of a round.
