Microsoft Cortanathe virtual assistant that’s predicting theoutright winnerof every NFL game this seasonenjoyed a bountifulThanksgiving, correctly picking tenof the Week 12 NFL games, including three of four on Thursday.Cortana’s first miss of the week came by way of the Green Bay Packers, who were upset by the Chicago Bears and continue to aggravate fans and bettors everywhere. Elsewhere, it also incorrectly picked the Falcons, Jaguars, and Giants, and rounded out the week with misses during the Sunday and Monday night games.In all, Cortana moves to 112-64 on the season (63%). Of the 135 experts and algorithms that are compared over at NFL Pick Watch, Cortana moves into ninth place. FiveThirtyEight’s Elo model, which we’ve put up against Cortana most weeks to see how it’s fared, moved into first place overall with an impressive tally of 118-58 (67%). As always, Elo doesn’t always predict an outright winner, which helps its overall score.This week, Cortana thinks that the Panthers will keep on their winning ways, and that the Packers, Patriots, and Giants will all bounce back after losses. In a possible wild card round preview between the Seahawks and the Vikings (the two would play if the playoffs started this weekend), Cortana gives the Vikings the slightest of edges at home.As always, you can access Cortana’s picksand the reasoning behind each pickover at Cortana’s Bing Blog.
