Opening day predictions

As you've hopefully noticed, I've created a page (over there on the right) that will have updated T-Rank predictions for every college basketball game. The way I publish the results is quite kludgey and it takes a long time to load, so be patient. Maybe somebody can teach me a better way.

In case you're interested, here are the T-Rank predictions compared to the Vegas line, for Big Ten games in which there is a line:

Matchup Vegas Line T-Rank line
Georgia Southern at Illinois -23 -15
Samford at Purdue -23.5 -22
Michigan St. at Navy -15.5 -13
Northern Kentucky at Wisconsin -28.5 -25
Minnesota v. Louisville -6 -8

In each case, T-Rank recommends taking the non-B1G team to cover. Obviously T-Rank is infused with anti-B1G bias. (FWIW, Kenpom's predictions are very similar to T-Rank's—within a point in each case—so Kenpom also hates the Big Ten.)

In any event, the T-Rank B1G pick of the day is Georgia Southern to cover against Illinois. Go Eagles!
