Social Media Predicts NFL Divisional Playoff Winners

Throughout the regular season and first round of the playoffs, we have picked NFL games in a pretty unconventional manner. Instead of using gut, cuter cheerleaders or coach on the cold seat, we have used social media buzz. We dumped data from Lithium Social Media monitoring and dumped it into some weighted formulas to pop out the winners (more on the formulas here). While it is not science it helps mix two of my passions and hasn’t performed awful. On the season, we finished with a 137-111-1 mark (.550) and a 3-1 mark through the Wild Card round of the 2013 playoffs.

Below is a video of this week’s projected winners:

What do you think of the picks? Would love to hear who you have slated to go to the Conference Championship games next weekend in the comments below.
