Computer Predictions: Results for Games Played 4/19-4/21

How did the computer fare with this week's predictions? Well, let's just say it's requested that its cabinet be polished to a high gloss after almost hitting the 90% mark for the second straight week.

As a reminder, we give the computer credit for games picked correctly (of course) and for games it declares toss-ups if the margin of victory is three goals or fewer. Picks in blue below were correct; those in red were wrong. For the games that were rated as toss-ups, the margin of victory is shown along with overtimes, if any.

For men's games, the computer had a very good week overall, finishing with 33 of 40 correct for an 82.3% picking average. For the women's games, results were again stellar this week, with the computer correctly calling 57 of 61 games (93.4%). For all games picked, the record was 90 of 101 (89.1%). The weekly and season-to-date tallies are in the table below.

Men's Division I continues to have the games that are hardest to predict. The computer's record there is 73.4% (vs. 93.0% for MD2 and 85.1% for MD3). The records so far for Women's Divisions I-III are 88.2%, 91.8%, and 89.7%, respectively.
