    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.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: 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.
