What is DomModel?The model is a machine learning algorithm (called a random forest model) that uses advanced NFL statistics to come up with what the spread should be. The model also considers variance by penalizing teams that do not have consistent week to week performances and gives a boost to teams with home field advantage.
We provide the model’s output on the DomModel Results page for each week. You’ll be able to see the results for every game, even the games we don’t bet. It will provide you with a quick idea of what games to bet on.
The model is named after the one of the site’s cofounders who wrote the code and developed it. Yes, his name is Dom and yes, he literally named the model after himself. Dom is known for being a beacon of creativity and modesty.
