It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for Bing’s weekly NFL predictions. Bing is not making any bold upset predictions when compared with the favorites in other polls for week six. The Bing Predicts team sees all of the undefeated teams continuing their win streaks, with the exception of the Carolina Panthers.
Bing is predicting that Seattle will end Carolina’s undefeated record. The Bing Predicts team’s reasoning is that Seattle has defeated the Carolina the last 5 times the met, including last year’s playoff match and three victories on the road in the past three seasons.
The rest of Bing’s predictions include:
In today’s Bing blog the team’s lead, Walter Sun, goes over the results of week 5. Bing predicts went 10 and 4 for the week, and correctly predicted the Colt’s upset over the Texans in Houston. While the team did get four of their predictions wrong, it was hard for any prognosticator to correctly see how close those four games ended up being. Sun explains:
Of the four incorrect picks, two games were decided by one point each (Kansas City and Tennessee), one lost in overtime (Baltimore), and the fourth was decided on the final play of the weekend (San Diego).
Overall, Bing Predicts is 48-29 for the season and seems to be steadily increasing its accuracy of picking games after a rough start early in the season.
