You can now make prediction formulas more selective by using the Situation Filter

WinPicks now allows you to create or edit prediction formulas that only generates prediction in certain situations. Four different situations can be chosen, and settings can be combined. The "Month" and "Day of Week" settings allow you to limit formulas to making predictions during selected months or days of the week. For example, you can create a formula specifically for NFL Monday night football that only makes predictions for Monday night games. The "Underdog" situation setting allows you to limit the formula to making predictions when either the home or away team is the underdog. The "Game Type" situation setting allows you to limit the formula to making predictions on division, conference, nonconference, or postseason games.

You can now compare the parameters of all formulas stored in a consensus group

Predictions made with a formula consensus are generally more accurate if the consensus group contains a diverse group of formulas. We've added a new feature called Compare Formula Parameters that allows you to quickly compare the parameters of the formulas in your group. It lists the contents of every formula contained in the consensus group, so you can see if the formulas are emphasizing the same parameters. This allows you to make decisions about whether to add or delete formulas fromr the group to make it more diverse.

More readable predictions screen

We've modified the Predict Sides, Predict Totals, and Pool Picks screens to look like web pages so they are easier to read and display more information.

The Formula Warehouse returns to the same place after downloading a formula

The Formula Warehouse used to jump back to the top of the page after you downloaded a prediction formula. Now it maintains its place on the list so you can continue to download formulas in sequence. You can also now sort formulas by name (alphabetical order), in addition to by their winning percentages and net units.

All conference and team changes have been added

The number of conference changes and realignments has been impossible to follow during the past few seasons, but we've researched everything so that WinPicks has the absolutely latest information for the 2012-2013 seasons. We also added four new FBS teams to the college football software (for a total of 124), and three new division 1 teams to college basketball, for a total of 347.
