Consensus rankings naturally weed out outlier opinions. A particular expert may have a risky “bold prediction” or a mistake in their rankings (e.g. not updated for the latest injury report). The research we’ve done on the benefit of following bold predictions suggests that it’s generally more optimal to roll with less risky options. Our ECR™ provides a safer alternative to following just one expert.
More importantly, our accuracy study suggests that ECR™ is highly accurate – it finished in the top 5 among all experts in the last six years (2010 - 2016).
