    Pacers vs. Wizards

    Roy Hibbert scored a season high 28 points and the Pacers evened the series at one game apiece beating Washington 86-82. Even with the big game from Hibbert, the Wizards had a chance to win late.

    With 5:02 left to play, Washington leading 77-74, the Wizards were 66 percent likely to win. Indiana responded with an 8-2 run that increased the Pacers' expected win probability from 34 percent to 77 percent.

    A defining play occurred on the ensuing Washington possession. Down three with 2:25 left in the game, Marcin Gortat got an offensive rebound. John Wall then launched a deep three instead of running a play. The Wizards never recovered. Had Wall setup a play and Washington scored to make it a one point game, the Wizards expected win probability increases from 23 percent to 38 percent. Had Wall's long three been good to tie the game, Washington's expected win probability increases to 46 percent.

    Thunder vs. Clippers

    Oklahoma City evened their series at one game apiece with a 112-101 victory. MVP Kevin Durant had 32 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists as the Thunder, who did trail at different points in the first half, were always the projected winner.

    OKC became 99 percent likely to win with 8:28 left in the fourth.

    The Predictalator

    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.
