The odds are based primarily on his power rankings
you're obviously free to come out with a better formula, but until you do, this is the best tool to calculate odds. The alternative is coming with a number out of your ass, and that would be highly subjective. And stinky...

Vegas does a similar thing when they come out with their lines, and nobody is complaining about that. And the lines are accurate enough to ensure they make money. Same thing with this - it's not a perfect method by any stretch, but it beats the alternative.
