    Spurs vs. Heat

    Kawhi Leonard scored a career-high 29 points and the Spurs defeated the Heat 111-92 to take a 2-1 series lead. San Antonio set a Finals record shooting 75.8 percent in the first half. The Spurs made 19 of their first 21 shots.

    Miami made a run in the third quarter outscoring San Antonio 25-15, yet the Heat only had a 23 percent chance of winning entering the fourth. By how many points would the Heat have had to outscore the Spurs in the third quarter in order to be the projected winner?

    The two time defending champions would have had to outscore San Antonio 33-15 (score at the end of third 86-83) and the Heat would have only been 50.8 percent likely to win.

    Additional Game Notes:
    • Miami cut San Antonio's lead to seven points in the third quarter, the Heat became 35 percent likely to win, Miami's highest expected win probability of the entire second half.
    • The Spurs were the projected winner for 42:10 minutes or 87.8 percent of the game.

    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.
