    Cavs vs. Bulls

    The Cleveland Cavaliers evened the Eastern Conference semifinal series at 2-2 with an 86-84 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Game 4 had a little bit of everything including another game-winning buzzer beater.

    LeBron James overruled Cleveland Head Coach David Blatt's plan for the last second play. The four time MVP told his coach, “Just give me the ball...I'm going to win it for us.” LeBron took the inbounds from Matthew Dellavedova and swished a jumper from the corner just before the buzzer sounded.



    The Bulls could have won if…

    With eight seconds left in the fourth, after Chicago's Derrick Rose tied the game at 84-84, Cavs coach David Blatt attempted to call a timeout. Associate head coach Tyronn Lue pulled Blatt back to the sideline before the referees noticed. Cleveland was out of timeouts and if the refs noticed Blatt's blunder, the Bulls would have been awarded a technical free throw and the ball.



    If Chicago makes the free throw, leading 85-84, and has possession, the Bulls become 69 percent likely to win. Even if the free throw is missed and the game remains tied, with possession Chicago is 60 percent likely to win.

    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.
