That's not my point.
My point is that: if his model predicts Vancouver -145, and the consensus predicts Vancouver -165, if the line moves to Vancouver -145 by gametime, then the model is picking up something new.
Stated differently: it's not necessarily bad that his model does not replicate consensus.
