Prop Model PropModel

The ScoresAndOdds Prop Model, introduced in early 2022, uses a time-tested stat projection model to simulate the outcome of each game over and over again. Statistics are logged during each simulated trial, and the results are then compared to the odds presented by the sportsbook to determine the best bets.
