summary of NFL Experts picking 49ers to win or lose this season

Week 9 update against Titans:

Looks like about 75% of all the experts picks are for 49ers to win. Out of the 42 experts and consensus selections, 9 of them are either 7-0 or 6-1 picking in the 49er past seven games. Out of those 9, 6 of them have chosen 49ers to win against Titans. Another pattern is that 49ers are chosen to win 85% of the time but the best experts (best experts are the top 14 out of the 42).  

Post explained:

I have compiled NFL expert picks for the 49ers games, including from 6 different major websites and 30+ sports analysts from those sites, and other projection selections.

These are only for the 49er games, to give us an idea how the experts predict in games that the 49ers play.  For example, Chris Mortensen (ESPN) and Steve Greenberg (Sporting News) were the only two that are 5-0 (after 5 weeks in the season), picking 49ers to win in their 3 games and lose in 2 games.

Additionally, after the 49ers pick record, I listed the number of times the expert has chosen the Niners to win a game.  So Mortensen and Greenberg both chose the 49ers 3 times.  As a 49er fan I would pick the 49ers 5 times through 5 games, but then would have a 3-2 record.

Maybe later in the season these standings would give a better idea of which "experts" are best at analyzing the games that the 49ers are playing in.  I've included their overall records aswell predicting all of the NFL games.  I'm sure many of yours and my picking winning percentage in our pick-em leagues are higher than some of these experts, but also I'm sure our picks are biased in the 49ers games, and many of us would be 3-2 (after 5 weeks of football). This way we can see what the best-of-the-experts are predicting in good matchups that offcourse we all would optimistically say the 49ers would win. I think these standings will make more sense later in the season.

Let me know if there are any good sources that I forgot or if anyone has an idea to upgrade this for future posts?...

 

Format of post is in this order for all of the tables below-

Selection of 49ers or opponent Week 1 through current, (49ers, next row 49ers, next row Vikings, etc)

record of picking in 49ers games, (for example, if expert picks 49ers three times in the first three games of the season, the record would be 2-1)
