    1. Hello Otto

      This is something we are looking at and hope to bring you at some point. We are interested in finding an objective way to rank the cappers. It is definitely an area that needs attention, because I don’t hear many cappers talking about their losses…

    1. Certainly do – I’ll add them tomorrow. Unfortunately we only have basic info for a smaller number of experts than in 2013, but it is still worth adding.

  1. How much historical data do you have? For instance, say I have a friend who is doing a pick-em pool at work and wants to know who would be the best analyst to base his picks off of on a week-to-week basis based on the five-year annual total of correct picks (weighted higher for recent years), would that be something you could provide?
