2016 Season Review By The Numbers

Just some cleanup on last season here at Get The Cover, it was the 3rd season I posted all my plays here and by percentage it was the worst season so far.

2016 Review (all plays posted on Get The Cover)

2016 Regular Season: 53-37-3

2017 Playoffs: 3-3

2016-2017 NFL Season Overall (Playoffs and Reg Season) : 56 – 40- 3 or 53%

While 53% isn’t terrible the goal is to cross the 55% bar annually and we missed it by a couple of plays. I dug in a little deeper to see how the bets last year broke down and basically it was a great year betting underdogs and pretty awful betting everything else.

Bet Type Wins Losses Pushes Win %
Underdog 29 14 2 64.4%
Favorite 13 15 1 44.8%
Under 5 5 0 50.0%
Over 4 3 0 57.1%
Teaser 3 3 0 50.0%
Pick’em 2 0 0 100.0%
Total 56 40 3 52.8%


This may be just an anomaly I do not remember having splits this dramatic in previous years but will be something to pay attention to this year.
