NFL Week 15: Mike Silver Continues to Deliver

December 20, 2012  |  Sports

Here is how the NFL pundits from ESPN, Yahoo, and CBS Sports did with their Week 15 predictions. Mike Silver of Yahoo led the pack, getting 12 of the 16 games right, resulting in a $1.39 yield. Silver has been a model of consistency: after achieving a $1.08 yield last season (#1 ranking), he has a $1.13 yield this year (#3). As a reminder, the yield measures the average payout, using Vegas odds, had you placed $1 bets on each of the pundit’s selections.

Chris Mortensen and Seth Wickersham continue their battle for the top spot, with Mortensen holding a razor-slim lead now.
