In-Game Win Probability Engine 0.5

A big (cosmetic) improvement for tonight's IND-TEN game. The win probability site now uses a new way of updating itself that makes it far smoother, especially for multiple games. Using AJAX, the site will now update itself automatically in the background without having to refresh and redraw the screen every 30 seconds. It might not sound like such an improvement, but the site will lose a lot of the quaint 1990's homemade feel. The updates will be much quicker. No more annoying flicker while the file downloads. And no more scrolling back down to the game you were following (in some browsers).

Final games from Sunday are here.

    Neat Stuff! But what's going on with the Giants-Steelers graph?

    That little loop? That's error in the data from the game feed. Either the feed itself had a bug or the game scorer momentarily misreported the time remaining.

    What magic powers does this game sorcerer possess?

    He can change time remaining?

    Ask him can to change that is Borat's time remaining.

    Does your model incorporate the quality of teams, or is it just a generic prediction of a matchup of equal teams?
