    Bulls vs. Cavs

    The Chicago Bulls took a 2-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 99-96 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bulls can thank Derrick Rose and a banked 3-pointer for the win.

    In the final play of the game, Rose took an inbounds from Mike Dunleavy Jr. on the wing and dribbled to his right. As time expired Rose banked a three pointer over Tristan Thompson.



    According to ESPN Stats and Information, this was the first game-winning shot by a Bulls player in the final ten seconds of a playoff game since Michael Jordan's shot over Byron Russell in the 1998 NBA Finals.



    The Cavs could have won if…

    It was an evenly matched game, there were 19 lead changes and 17 ties and before tipoff Cleveland was 50.9 percent likely to win. In a contest this close one extra possession is all either team needed.

    If Derrick Rose misses the final shot and the game goes to overtime, Cleveland with possession becomes 52.2 percent likely to win.

    Additional Game Notes:
    Chicago was only the projected favorite for 50.7 percent of the game. However, the Bulls were never projected to lose in the fourth quarter.

    08/09/2017 Highlight: Football season is slowly approaching and as we use our ResultsFinder tool to look back on previous seasons, we can see that ATS picks in the NFL regular season have topped 56% ATS four times in seven years, and have been profitable in all but one season on the site. NFL Playoff picks are also a stellar 50-25 (67% ATS) in our history.

    In college football, "normal" or better totals are 58% all-time and have been profitable in five of the previous seven years. Meanwhile, our strongest ATS pick each week in college football is 69-40 (63% ATS) all-time. With college football season win totals being posted this week, we can also note that last season, playable win total picks in went 28-19 (60% O/U) to turn a profit of $899 for a normal $50 player using our play value recommendations.

    MLB picks have been on a tear for upwards of a month, with our models generating $742 in total profits on ML and RL picks since the beginning of July. "Normal" or better ML and RL plays in that same stretch are a commendable 20-11 (64.5%), producing $331 in profits for an average $50 bettor.
