Unique Football Guide Picks All '02 Games
By Howard Schwartz

Last year saw the inaugural edition of the Las Vegas Pro Football Guide and Workbook by Patrick Forsythe. ($19.95, 59 pages, 8x11 plastic spiralbound.) In an unprecedented move, Forsythe set out to predict the winners of every football game that was on the schedule last year. Overall, he picked 54 percent. And, he successfully predicted seven of the 12 playoff teams, including the eventual Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots before the season started. Using his own information, he also finished 12th in the prestigious annual Las Vegas Hilton football handicapping contest and was a semi-finalist in the Stardust Invitational football championships. (He's already bought his future book ticket on the Super Bowl-a photocopy of this $100 ticket is included in the book along with his predicted line, total and final score.)

As it was last year, the book is based on his analysis of each scheduled regular season game-with 1,000 computer simulations of each matchup. Other factors, like the starting lineups; past histories; road and home games and games in their divisions are all considered as well. You can see his predictions and predicted results week by week while keeping your own records for the week and for the entire season.

So for those who believe someone can predict the future based on results of the past and skill, which allows an individual to anticipate weeks ahead based on a variety of factors, Forsythe's book may just what the doctor ordered. Incidentally, if you're wondering-more than 500 copies of the book sold in the first three weeks of availability last season.
