  • GUIDE: College Basketball and NBA Picks

    Understanding AccuScore’s Basketball Picks

    Here's a simple guide to help you understand how to read AccuScore's picks for college basketball and NBA

    First of all, AccuScore offers two views to see picks: The Graph View and the Grid View.
    The Graph View is the default for all NBA picks because there are only a maximum of 15 games per night. The grid view is the default setting for college basketball because it's easier to search games and the sheer volume of college basketball games that can be held on a single day. At any point, you can switch between views using by clicking on the little button at the top of the picks, as displayed by the red arrow in the image below:

    Graph-vs-Grid

    The Grid View Explained

    To help explain the Grid View, let's start left to right in the image below

    Grid View

    First, the date and team names are listed. In order to see the full forecast with player projections, click on the team names.

    Then, we see a title of "Acc Sim%" which is the AccuScore simulation percentage. In this case, 33.6% of simulations had GA Tech Winning, while Boston College won 66.3% of simulations. So, BC is the moneyline pick since it won the majority of simulations.

    Next, we have "Odds%" which is AccuScore taking Vegas odds and converting them to a percentage so that we can determine side value. In this case, GA Tech's odds are at 42.92% which means there is not side value on picking GA Tech because AccuScore thinks those odds should be even lower at 33.6%. Alternatively, BC's odds are 59.84% when AccuScore calculates them to be at 66.3%. There is a little over 6% side value here, so this would be the side value pick.

    Next, we have "PS/ACC PS." Simply, "PS" is the current point spread line: BC -3.0. "Acc PS" is where AccuScore calculates the point spread line to sit, which is BC -5.5 in this case. Since the line should be BC giving up 5.5 point and they're only giving up 3.0 points, the Point Spread pick BC-3.0. Looking a couple columns ahead, that's a 4-star trends pick. The star rating is based solely on historical trends involving teams, conferences, sports and lines. Four stars is the highest trends pick.

    Finally, we have "OU/ACC OU." Similar to point spread, OU refers to Over Under line. In this case, Vegas has set the over/under line at 141.0. Below that, AccuScore's over/under line is 138. Since AccuScore's line is lower than the Vegas line, the pick is the Under. Looking at the column marked "Total," we see this is a 4-star pick.

    Note: The "search" bar at the top right allows this version to be easier to find games. Also, members can search games by star ratings in this view

    The Graph View Explained

    Graph example

    TOTALS: Let's start at the bottom left: "Under" is AccuScore's pick for this game on the Totals. Below that pick is a star rating for the pick: two stars. This star rating is based on historical trends involving the teams, conferences, sports, lines, etc. Below the stars are two numbers: 135.5 and 52.8%. The "135.5" is the Totals line, so AccuScore's pick is UNDER 135.5. The 52.8% is the percentage of AccuScore's simulations that resulted in the Under.

    Point Spread: If we go to the bottom right of the box, we see a section labeled "Point Spread." Again, there is a star, so this a one-star trends pick. Below that, we see "Pitt +17.0" and "57.0%." This means that AccuScore's pick against the spread is Pittsburgh +17.0 and that Pitt either won or lost by fewer than 17 points 57% of the time. Alternatively, if the pick was Notre Dame -17.0, this section would read "ND -17.0"

    Moneyline/Side Value: In this case, Notre Dame is a heavy favorite at 83.9% to win, which can be seen under the school's logo and is also represented by the blue shading on the outside circle. Clearly this is the moneyline pick.

    The inner circle represents the current Vegas odds, and the dark blue area on the inner circle represents Side Value. Side Value is the value based on odds being inflated. In this case, Pittsburgh's odds of winning provide 8% value.

    Adjusting Spreads/Totals

    If you're receiving spreads or totals lines that don't line up with AccuScore's listed spreads and totals lines, you can adjust them! Simply go into the detailed forecast by clicking "view more" in the Graph view and clicking the team names in the Grid view. There, you will be able to adjust lines as shown in the images below:

    2018 NCAA Tournament Bracketology: West Region

    Xavier has the no. 1 seed in the West after losing in its conference tournament final to Providence, and thought that doesn't spell upset for the Bulldogs against the winner of the North Carolina Central Eagles or the Texas Southern Tigers, AccuScore has Xavier exiting in the Sweet 16 to fellow Bulldogs, Gonzaga.

    The Zags have become tournament regulars, and that means something this time of year. UNC Greensboro doesn't expect to pose much of a challenge, but the game against Ohio State should provide a tougher test before Xavier arrives at the Sweet 16. On the bottom half of the bracket, North Carolina and Michigan are the two clear favorites to make the Sweet 16. No.3 Michigan wins the proverbial coin flip with a 51-49 edge in simulations over no. 2 North Carolina in what promises to be a heck of a game if both teams can survive and advance to that point. Then, the computer is calling another 51-49 coin flip on Gonzaga advancing to the Final Four as a no. 4 seed. Gonzaga claimed its sixth straight WCC title with a 20-point beatdown of BYU in the championship game, so the Bulldogs are tournament ready and have the right pedigree to cause a couple upsets along the way.

    In terms of raw percentages, AccuScore calculates Gonzaga has a 33.54% chance of making the Final Four and 5.27% chance of winning the championship, while North Carolina is close behind with 20.86% chance of making the Final Four and 4.6% chance of winning it all. Michigan is the third most likely team to win the West at 16.63% to reach the Final Four, followed by Xavier at 11.75% emerge as the no. 1 seed out of the West region.

    Olympic Hockey Review + NHL & College Basketball Top Trends

    Germany was a minute away from the biggest surprise of Olympics ice hockey tournament history. Their unbelievable run for a gold was denied by Olympic athletes from Russia in the last minute of the game and an eventual 4-3 overtime defeat for Germany.

    Even though there were many surprises and Germany busted brackets by reaching the final of the tournament, Accuscore predictions provided our members with hefty profits during the games. Side value bets, especially, were right on a money since start of the tournament. Members who bet 100 dollars for every game's side value picks in Olympics ice hockey tournament cashed +1555 dollars in pure profit. This wasn't amateur hour for out members.

    This time, NHL players didn’t participate in the Olympics. They continued their regular season schedule last two weeks as planned. And so, AccuScore members benefited from accurate hockey predictions and NHL predictions simultaneously.

    Since start of the season, accurate Accuscore predictions have provided 829 dollars profit, if total, side value and money line bets have been placed for every game. Like in Olympics, NHL side value bets have been especially profitable and returned profits of 2286 dollars since start of the season. Total bets haven’t been as profitable as side value predictions in NHL, but in Finnish ice hockey Liiga, total bets have been a real bank. So far, 6540 profit form the Liiga games speaks for itself...if you didn't know already, AccuScore takes hockey seriously.

    College Basketball Top Trends

    March madness is just around the corner. Like the name says, it is complete madness when trying to predict all games correct in the final tournament. Before the madness, we can highlight some best betting results from the games of individual teams:

    Charlotte has won only five games so far, but that's in line with our computer's thoughts. Actually, if you had placed a side value bet based on our predictions in every Charlotte game, you have over +1500 profit only from those games. So, while Charlotte won't be making the tourney, there's still time to cash in on their season.

    NCAA basketball Totals have been especially strong with UNLV and number 4 ranked Villanova. By betting totals in every game for these teams, 1340 and 1140 dollars profit, respectively, would be sitting in your wallet. Predictions for another highly ranked team, Michigan State, have been accurate as well. Side value bets for the Spartans have recorded over 900 profits since start of the season. Now we are preparing for the perfect bracket - stay tuned.

    Deserving of the Nod?

    Not everyone agrees on UNC getting the No. 1 seed, having lost to Duke two-of-three times this season. With 11 top-50 wins this season tho, it was tough for voters to shy away.

    If you don't agree with AccuScore's upset pick of Middle Tenn. over UNC in the Elite 8, the Tar Heels just might deserve a lot more Final Four-related discussion than the sim data suggests.

    Upset Alert, or Not

    When the bracket was set, there was some notable action on No. 13 Winthrop taking it over No. 4 Butler. It's the highest the Bulldogs have ever been seeded and the public seems to disagree. AccuScore sim data, however, would go with the seeded-favorite in this first-round matchup.

    Players to Watch

    With UCLA in the field, we already know Lonzo Ball will garner more than enough attention. At 6'6", the freshman guard has made a name for himself and will look to catapult that legacy to the pro level with his play in the tourney.

    Beyond the hype, though, most hoops fans know not to overlook Kentucky's Malik Monk in this region. Averaging nearly 21 points per game, watch for Monk to try and lead his No. 2-seeded UK squad to the Final Four.

    Value Pick & Final Word

    If you're scowering the bracket looking for value picks -- either to reach the Final Four or win the tourney -- look no further than the South region.

    At 40:1 odds, Middle Tennessee provides some hidden value -- a lot for a little. What's hidden though is the fact that while it has a 40:1 chance to win the region, it -- by far -- has the best odds for a No. 12 seed to win the tourney at 250:1. Nevada and Princeton are at 500:1, while NC Wilmington is at 1000:1.

    AccuScore data has Middle Tennessee reaching the Elite 8 for a matchup against the UCLA Bruins.

  • West Region: NCAA Tournament Bracketology 2017

    Written by Rohit Ghosh

    Follow @rohitghosh on Twitter

    2017 NCAA Tournament Bracketology: West Region

    Let's just say the West region will garner some extra attention -- and wagering opportunities -- with No. 1 Gonzaga atop the standings. Having net made the Final Four, the Bulldogs are already being picked as an upset-victim by the third round.

    What does AccuScore data have to say? Let's take a close look at the West region.

    Just how Good is Gonzaga?

    Look, you don't win 29 straight games without being that good. They had some big wins over the likes of Florida, Iowa St., and Arizona. And even further, they beat a good Saint Mary's team three times.

    Make sure to take a deeper look at AccuScore's bracketcaster. Both Gonzaga and St. Mary's have something to say in the sims when it comes to which team represents the West region in the Final Four. Value-pick alert!

    What to Watch

    If there's one first round matchup you watch, make it the 8-9 seed game with Northwestern and Vanderbilt. Vandy has depth of shooters at every position - keep an eye on the three-point attempts.

    Causing Trouble

    While offense tends to get the highlights, it's a team's defensive consistency that often determines their tourney run. No. 4 West Virginia was No. 1 in the nation in forcing turnovers in the regular season, boasting an average turnover margin of +8.2 TOs.

    West Region Odds to Win

    Gonzaga 8/5
    Arizona 2/1
    West Virginia 11/2
    Florida State 8/1
    St. Mary's CA 10/1
    Notre Dame 14/1
    Maryland 22/1
    Northwestern 50/1
    Vanderbilt 50/1
    VCU 50/1
    Xavier 50/1
    Florida Gulf Coast 100/1
    Princeton 125/1
    Bucknell 150/1
    North Dakota 200/1
    South Dakota State 200/1

    Value Pick

    AccuScore sim data would suggest a wager on Saint Mary's. There's a good chance they reach the Elite 8 - why not take them to win the region?

    In terms of No. 6 seeds, SMU has the best odds to win the tourney at 40:1. Cincinnati and Maryland are at 100:1, while Creighton is at 150:1. What that means is that SMU has a much better chance -- relatively to other teams at their seed -- to reach the Final Four.

    Final Word

    It's no South region, but Gonzaga does have a fairly tough path to the Final Four. Their biggest hurdle -- somewhat early on -- should come against West Virginia. At least that's what most would have you think.

    AccuScore data does have Notre Dame showing the kind of production to put up a fight against both WVU and Gonzaga, but it's the Bulldogs that reach the FInal Four at the end.
