    Chasing 73 Wins (03/28/16)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    What's the chance the Warriors break Michael Jordan and the Bulls' 72 win record?



    Update: After a surprising loss to Minnesota last night, Golden State will now need to win its final four games to surpass the 1995-96 Bulls. There is a 19.7 percent chance that the Warriors win out but the pressure is on in the chase for 73 wins.

    The Warriors got their 66th victory, faster than any other team in NBA history, on Sunday defeating the lowly Sixers 117-105. Golden State continues its chase for 73 wins to break the 1995-96 Bulls' record for wins in a season.

    The defending champions must go 7-2 the rest of the way to set a new record. The Dubs haven't had a nine game stretch this season where they didn't win at least seven games.

    What are the Warriors' chances of surpassing Michael Jordan and the 1995-96 Bulls?

    Golden State is projected to win 72.9 games. Stephen Curry and crew will play six of their final nine games at home where they have won a record 53 straight regular season games.

    The Warriors have a 86.7 percent chance to win at least 72 games (tie the record) and a 64.4 percent chance to win at least 73 games and break the record.

    Our simulations assume full motivation and effort for each team on Golden States' schedule down the stretch. However, San Antonio, who is a lock for the 2-seed in the West, is known to rest players. If Greg Popovich does sit his starters then the Warriors path to the 73 wins record becomes even more likely as the Spurs are the only team projected to beat Golden State over the final nine games of the season.

    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.
