    Bulls vs. Warriors (04/06/16)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    Would Jordan, Scottie and the 1995-96 Bulls sweep the Warriors?



    Golden State has been chasing 73 wins all year to break Chicago's NBA record for most victories in a single season. As the Warriors threaten to surpass the 1995-96 Bulls it is natural to want to compare the two teams. So which squad is better?

    Scottie Pippen says the 1995-96 Bulls would sweep the Warriors.

    The Hall of Famer said in a hypothetical series between the two teams he would defend Stephen Curry, while Michael Jordan would guard Klay Thompson. Pippen believes that his length would bother the league's MVP and Curry would score fewer than 20 points per game.

    Is Pippen correct or is he just another hater?

    We simulated a seven game series with the 1995-96 Bulls vs. the 2016 Warriors on a neutral court to find out.

    Jordan, Scottie and the 1995-96 Bulls would sweep the Warriors but just 8.6 percent of the time.

    The Bulls are the better team. Chicago would be 63.8 percent likely to win the seven game series. If Jordan and Pippen were to win, the most likely outcome would be a long series (not a sweep) with a 39.4 percent chance that it takes at least six games for Chicago to win.

    In the simulations, Curry scores 20+ points in 84.1 percent of the games.

    Going to the scorecard, Pippen was right that Chicago was the better team. However, Jordan's sidekick wouldn't shut down Curry and a sweep isn't likely to happen either.

    Bulls Chance
    Win Overall 63.8%
    Sweep 8.6%
    Win in 5 15.9%
    Win in 6 20.8%
    Win in 7 18.5%

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
