    Bulls vs. Cavs

    The Chicago Bulls took a 2-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 99-96 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bulls can thank Derrick Rose and a banked 3-pointer for the win.

    In the final play of the game, Rose took an inbounds from Mike Dunleavy Jr. on the wing and dribbled to his right. As time expired Rose banked a three pointer over Tristan Thompson.



    According to ESPN Stats and Information, this was the first game-winning shot by a Bulls player in the final ten seconds of a playoff game since Michael Jordan's shot over Byron Russell in the 1998 NBA Finals.



    The Cavs could have won if…

    It was an evenly matched game, there were 19 lead changes and 17 ties and before tipoff Cleveland was 50.9 percent likely to win. In a contest this close one extra possession is all either team needed.

    If Derrick Rose misses the final shot and the game goes to overtime, Cleveland with possession becomes 52.2 percent likely to win.

    Additional Game Notes:
    Chicago was only the projected favorite for 50.7 percent of the game. However, the Bulls were never projected to lose in the fourth quarter.

    04/24/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now in full swing, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides, totals, and run lines have all been profitable to date, generating a total of $580 for an average $50 bettor. There are have been a total of nine "normal" or better positions year-to-date, and those positions are a sparkling 8-1 (88.9%), producing $393 in total profits. There is a ton of variance in baseball and there will be ups-and-downs along the way, but the early returns on the Predictalator's baseball projections are promising.

    The NBA Playoffs tipped off this week and the Predictalator is off to a stellar start. With a full season's worth of data to work with, the Predictalator has historically fared very well in the postseason across all sports, and this year has been no different. NBA playoff sides are 9-7 (56.3%) ATS, while NBA playoff totals are 15-9 (62.5%) through Sunday's action. A $50 bettor would have amassed $401 in total profits through the first week of the postseason alone.
