    Free Agency Impact (07/06/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    How has free agency impacted the NBA title odds?



    So many free agency moves, so little line movement.

    NBA teams committed over $1.4 billion on the first day of free agency. Most of that money was spent to keep players with their current teams.

    Damian Lillard signed for five years and $120 million with the Blazers, Kevin Love came to terms with Cleveland on a $110 million contract that will keep him a Cavalier for the next five years, the Spurs locked up Kawhi Leonard, the NBA Defensive Player of the Year (5 years, $90 million) and Anthony Davis signed a five-year extension worth an estimated $145 million to stay with the Pelicans.

    Players cashed in but none of the deals were an NBA landscape shifting move like when LeBron decided to go back home to Cleveland last summer.

    Though, players that did switch teams had an impact on the NBA title odds.

    San Antonio landed talented big man LaMarcus Aldridge, the Spurs title odds have improved from 10/1 to 9/2. San Antonio now only trails Cleveland (11/4) as a favorite to win it all next season.

    The Los Angeles Clippers lost DeAndre Jordan to the Mavericks. Without the defensive superstar the Clips title odds have doubled from 10/1 to 20/1.

    Dallas on the other hand has seen its odds go from 33/1 to 20/1, fifth best in the NBA.

    Six teams have seen their odds improve and 11 teams' odds have gotten worse.

    How has free agency impacted your favorite team's title odds?

    03/27/2017 Highlight: With the start of MLB right around the corner, we can use our ResultsFinder tool to uncover some past success in baseball. April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April. MLB season win totals have also been extremely fruitful in the history of this site, with the Predictalator producing an outstanding 54-19 (74.0%) record on all playable win totals.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator. There were a total of 69 "normal" or better college hoops positions (sides and totals) in the month of March, and the Predictalator posted a strong 42-27 (60.9%) record, generating $704 in total profits. NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March. The Predictalator has now amassed an incredible 45-28 (61.6%) on all "normal" or better money lines, puck lines, and totals this season, totaling $499 in total profits for a ?$50 bettor.
