PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Paul Bessire, known better by the the nickname of his program, “The Prediction Machine,” checked in with The Fan Morning Show today to share his NFL picks, as he does every Thursday at 8:40 a.m.

Bessire, whose machine simulates every game 50,000 times, said that it might be a good idea to stay away from the Raiders vs. Broncos game tonight, citing a number of reasons why he thinks it’s difficult to call.

The machine has the Steelers beating the Chargers in 71 percent of its simulations, by an average score of 23-16.

As usual, Bessire also had a plethora of analysis on a wide array of upcoming NFL games and he gave the machine’s recommendations for which games should be the best plays and which might be better to stay away from.
