Footballbet.net's Pro Football Forecast Betting Handicapping Software Engine is developing a pretty good following. The program's low cost and five-year results are a main selling point, as is the ease of using the program.

Pro Football Forecast Betting Handicapping Software Engine

The Pro Football Forecast Betting Handicapping Software Engine is based on Yards Per Point, which many readers know is one of my favorite football statistics, so naturally I'm going to like the program. Other factors, such as turnovers are added into the mix to give the final predictions.

The basic program sells for $20 and will require roughly 30 minutes a week to input the statistics, while an advanced version of the program sells for $50 and allows users to download all the stats and have your weekly predictions in about a minute.

Buyers of either program will be e-mailed an Excel spreadsheet, which the program is run on, so you must have Excel and a Windows-based computer, as the program doesn't work on Macs.

Record

Low cost and ease-of-use don't mean much if the program in question doesn't pick enough winners to give you a profit and the program has done extremely well in that regard, with a best bet record of 319-207 excluding some ties between 2004 and 2012. That translates to a healthy 60.6% record during that span.

The program uses the current season's statistics, so it will not begin to give predictions until the third week of the year.

Summary

For those who don't want to spend a lot of money on a program the Pro Football Forecast Betting Handicapping Software Engine is a decent choice. The program has a solid track history, but it's important to remember to play the Best Bets only, as they have a much better historical record.
