PlayoffPredictor.com uses a combination of a mathematical computer based formula plus a calculated playoff committee bias in order to rank all top 25 teams. This top 25 list is a prediction of what the selection committee's top 25 rankings will be that are released on Tuesday nights. The top 25 rankings is not my opinion of the teams rankings, rather it is a prediction on what the committe will do.

Additionally, using the menu at the top you can predict the future rankings the committee will give each team by filling out who the winners and losers of each game will be.

Average Committee Bias --
What's this?
Committee Bias
The bias indicates the level of agreement between the PlayoffPredictor's computer ranking and the committee ranking of a given team.

If a team has a high positive bias, the committee is ranking a team higher than the computer. If a team has a high negative bias, the computer is ranking that team higher than the committee. If the bias is zero then the commitee and computer agree on the ranking for that team.
