The new Platinum Page summarizes essential game information and rates the strength of a play. Just click to get your pick!

The Platinum Page is a brand new feature of WinPicks that summarizes essential game information onto a single page. This page breaks down a game using three different handicapping methods: the prediction formula method, the key trends method, and the head-to-head matchup method.

If all three methods favor the same team, then WinPicks recommends the game as a Platinum Pick. If two methods agree, and one has no opinion, the game is recommended as a strong play. If two methods agree and one method is opposed, the game is called a possible play. Otherwise, no recommendation is made. The analysis is performed both against the spread (ATS), and against the totals line (for over/under selections). Games recommended as Platinum Picks should be given strong consideration when you make your wagers.

WinPicks produces a Platinum Page for every game. This powerful new feature provides you with rock solid handicapping information and game recommendations, and couldn't be any easier to use. Just click to get your pick!
