NightShift Formula Tuner

WinPicks has a tremendously powerful feature call the Formula Tuner that works with any prediction formula. The Tuner uses a Monte Carlo technique that randomly varies the numbers, testing the results along the way. When a finds a better result, it remembers the new formula values, and continues to run.

This year we've added a new feature called NightShift that enhances the Formula Tuner by letting it run until you get the results you desire. NightShift is like a tireless worker who will tweak your formulas as long as you'd like, always squeezing out a higher winning percentage and more net units. If you pay a sports service, it's time to stop throwing your money away. NightShift works for free and puts every tout's record to shame!

To use NightShift, just tell it how long you'd like to work on a formula. You can specify the number of tries or the number of minutes that you want the tuner to run, or you can even tell NightShift to run until the formula is up a given number of net units. You don't even have to watch! Go to bed and wake up the next morning with a formula that will blow your bookie's mind!

NightShift can tune a single formula, or all of your formulas, never stopping until you get the results you desire. You can tune formulas to produce against the spread winners, against the totals winners, or straight-up winners. Some of the results we have seen are absolutely phenomenal. Formulas that formerly lost units have been tuned until they now produce more than 100 net units in a single season!

New RPI Formula

The NCAA updated their Rating Percentage Index (RPI) in December 2004, and we've added the new version to WinPicks. Plus, we've created a new index for strength of schedule. We think you'll find that WinPicks is the most accurate and up-to-date source of RPI information anywhere, better than anything you'll find in the print media or on the Web.

You can download and install the software multiple times during the season

You only pay once per season. If your hard drive crashes, or if you accidently erase the software, you can download and install it again, absolutely FREE.

All conference and team changes have been added

We've taken care of the conference changes in all sports and added six new teams (for a total of 332) to College Basketball Analyst.
