The Machine has kicked into gear – Now with 18 data points to compare, we are starting to get a better idea of its effectiveness.
Overall The Machine is just beating the Sportsbet line, however I am still losing. Remember, The Machine uses Supercoach Team values, Break-Evens and a few other factors to formulate a winning team and margin.
And here is a summary of The Machine’s Round 8 bets;
This brings me to The Machine’s balance sheet;
Are here is what The Machine has thrown up for Round 9;

|West Coast V Fremantle||WCE||13||19.5||6.5||No bet|
The Machine has gone for two under-dogs …. St.Kilda and Collingwood. While I feel an urge to back them to win at better value(last week’s two under-dogs both got up!), I must remain strong and stick to my rules(see previous weeks for specifics).
I am looking forward to this week’s games again. While I did lose last Friday night’s game (Cats V Pies), the added level of interest gained from the $5 bet was brilliant and in many ways, payed for itself. I look forward to my $5 Doggies bet to give a little more this Friday night.
Yours devoted to The Machine,
