New York Times' political statistician Nate Silver who runs fivethirtyeight.com received a lot of press for calling 49 of 50 states in the 2008 election correctly. And while some people gave him credit, many political pundits claimed it was just luck. This time around Sliver nailed it again calling all 50 states correctly.
Silver's political predicting prowess caused his recently released book, The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail to skyrocket in sales by 850% on Amazon.com to the #2 best seller. So inquiring minds want to know... How would Silver do picking football games?
We contacted Nate and asked him to pick all 14 NFL games this week. Here they are. Let’s see how he does….
