i use a different website for sports sims usually, but in my free time i make brackets for different sports. i was hoping to find an app for this purpose on my phone, and i was very excited when i found this one. however, i was immediately disappointed by a few things: the lack of teams without subscription, and the blowout wins on what are supposed to be “even” matchups. i like the ratings system and the layout, but limiting the team selection and then having lopsided results when the teams you do offer face each other make me hesitant to recommend this. i want to like it, i really do! but as far as i can tell buying all the IAP’s just to see those teams possibly have inaccurate results isn’t worth it to me. i guess it’s back to the computer for me.

College Football 2017-2018 season: 567-205 record (73.4% and 0.4% more accurate than ESPN FPI)

NFL Football 2017-2018 season: 180-87 record (67.4% and tied with ESPN FPI)

NBA Basketball 2017-2018 season: 620-341 record (64.5%)

NCAA Division I College Basketball 2017-2018 season: 2762-1086 record (71.8%)

Not very accurate


I’ve used it for a month in college and the lines that are arrived using your app are way off from the outcome of games. Maybe a selective few are close but example is Tulane / Tulsa. 30-30 on your app and final score 62-28. That’s just one example. Not angry just thought the simulations would be closer

Where is your support email.. Yes I would be interested

Thank you so much for the very thoughtful feedback. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the accuracy. Typically the estimates are very accurate. I've given you a free 1-year subscription to my website where you can check out the accuracy for all six sports covered (a $259 value). My goal is to provide exemplary service to customers. I hope you will consider this when leaving your next review. Thank you!

Amazingly accurate


I was sitting at Applebee’s tonight with my friends watching the NCAA tournament games and this app was shockingly close to all the final scores! I think it’s pretty amazing! Nice job! Thank you for the free tips!!
