    Spurs vs. Mavericks

    Top-seeded San Antonio held on to beat Dallas 93-89 to even the series at two games apiece. The Spurs got a go-ahead three pointer from Boris Diaw and Manu Ginobili hit free throws down the stretch to ice the game.

    A turning point came late in the fourth with San Antonio trailing, 83-82, for the first time since early in the second quarter. DeJuan Blair was ejected for kicking Tiago Splitter in the back of the head after being called for a foul when the two got tangled on the ground. Ginobili converted the technical free throw and Splitter made both foul shots to give San Antonio an 85-83 lead. The Spurs expected win probability increased from 49 percent to 66 percent. Dallas never led again.

    What could have been…
    Ginobili missed a free throw that could have given San Antonio a three point lead with less than ten seconds remaining. On the ensuing Dallas possession, Monta Ellis had a driving layup rim out. Had Ellis's shot fallen and the game goes into overtime, Dallas would have been 51 percent likely to win.

    Heat vs. Bobcats

    The Bobcats spent 40 seconds early in the third quarter as the projected winners. Then Miami outscored Charlotte 28-13 and the Heat's expected win probability increased from 48 percent to 92 percent.

    The two-time defending NBA champions are the first team to punch a ticket to the second round.

    Hawks vs. Pacers

    Atlanta used a 24-4 run to start the second quarter to blow the game wide open. The Hawks' expected win probability increased from 24 percent at the start of the game to 87 percent at the end of the half. The top-seeded Pacers are on the verge of elimination.

    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.
