We’ve written post after post after post this football season about projected point spreads and win odds, which has led to the following question multiple times: “How do you convert point spreads to a team’s chance of winning the game?”
The answer: We don’t.
Over the summer, Cantor Gaming released point spreads for every NFL game this season (excluding Week 17, of course). It was a generous endeavor and gave us all plenty to talk about during those boring summer months, but they’ve become a little outdated.
A lot of teams—like the Atlanta Falcons—needed some significant adjustments, so that’s what we tried to do in providing projected point spreads for the rest of the 2012 NFL season.
Use these however you wish. (They can help particularly with planning ahead for your Survivor Pool strategy.)
