    2017 NBA Finals: Warriors in 5

    AccuScore’s computer feels rather strongly that the Golden State Warriors will win the 2017 NBA Finals and win rather comfortably. The Warriors won 88.5% of the 10,000 series played out in the simulated environment, while Cleveland only won 11.5% of the time. It’s not impossible for LeBron James and company to win, but they face long odds. If it’s going to happen, Game 6 gives the Cavs their best chance to win. According to the computer, Warriors in 5 is the most likely outcome with 34.3% of simulations ending with the Warriors standing victorious after 5 games. However, there is a 21.3% chance that this series goes the full 7 games.

    The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers tip off their NBA Finals rematch Thursday at Oracle Arena. Anyone following the league this year knew this rematch was practically inevitable - two stacked teams that were clearly head and shoulders above the competition.

    The Warriors are 7-point favorites with the total set at 225.

    Vegas Odds vs AccuScore Sims

    A day ahead of the game, wager tracking data suggested that the majority of the public is leaning towards a Cleveland moneyline pick, with close to 74% of ML dollars on the Cavs (+270) for Game 1.

    AccuScore sim data, however, would go against the public trend in this case. The Warriors cover a -7 spread in over 82 percent of simulations, suggesting some value on an ATS pick that generally suggests 52-to-53 percent chance of happening (-110).

    The biggest value in Game 1 seems to be on the total though, with AccuScore's simulated total about five points lower than that listed in Vegas.

    Betting Trends
    • The Cavs are 2-5 straight up (SU) in their last seven road games vs the Warriors.

    • The Cavaliers are 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 7.0 points or less.

    What to Watch For: Game 1

    Steph Curry has quietly had an incredible postseason. Even beyond the remarkable 12-0 start to the playoffs, Curry's numbers have been under-hyped. Currently, he's averaging 28.6 points per game on 43 percent shooting from beyond the arc and 50 percent overall from the field. Outside of someone like LeBron James, there's no one playing better ball than Curry. In the decisive fourth quarter of last year's Game 7 vs the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, Curry was just 1-of-6 from the field. Let's just say he'll look to replace that memory with a better one this time around.

    The Cavaliers' offense has been beyond comprehension in the postseason, putting up 120.7 points per 100 possessions. We're expecting them to be just fine on that end of the floor. What potentially could be a nightmare is their struggling defense. In the regular season, only eight teams had a worse defensive rating compared to Cleveland.

    2018-19 NBA Season Preview: Last Season NBA Picks +6314 profit

    A new season has finally arrived for the NBA, and so, we took a quick peek back at last season. The 2017-18 NBA season was incredibly profitable, so let's just get to the numbers.

    AccuScore's 2017-18 NBA Betting Trends
    All Side Value Picks: +4590
    All Spread Picks: +3460
    All Total Picks: 0 (no, this is not a typo. All Totals picks were a net zero on the season, somehow.)
    All Moneyline Picks: -1736
    2017/18 Season: +6314 Profit

    NBA Expert Picks - Every Game

    In taking a closer look, AccuScore's computer is designed to find value, so the overall moneyline picks being down -1736 is not something we consider a troubling trend. If you look at value picks, whether they be side value, spreads or totals, AccuScore's computer was actually +8050 profit. Before you freak out and think we're being selective, side value picks are literally AccuScore's picks on the moneyline, based on when the computer identifies value. So, that +8050 profit number for the 2017-18 season is more representative of AccuScore's picks than the +6314 number, but we'll take it either way. AccuScore's NBA picks make money.

  • 2019 NBA Playoffs: Warriors Projected to Beat Bucks in NBA Finals

    2019 NBA Playoffs Preview: Warriors Over Buck in NBA Finals

    The NBA Playoffs tip-off Saturday, and AccuScore played out every series 10,000 times to simulate out the entire NBA postseason with a few surprises along the way, but the Golden State Warriors top the Milwaukee Buck in the NBA Finals for Kevin Durant's third straight title and the Warriors' fourth championship over a five-year span. Here's a look at the entire playoffs as AccuScore sees it.

    Western Conference

    The Warriors sweeping the Clippers is obviously on the table, since the Warriors beat the Clippers in 92% of AccuSore's simulations, the most lopsided of any series in the 2019 Western Conference playoffs. Golden State has an 18.5% chance of clean sweeping the Clippers, which may seem low until you consider that that's more than double the Clippers' chances of winning the series. The Warriors' highest probability for a closeout game, however, is Game 5 with 38.6% of simulations saying the Warriors pull off the gentleman's sweep.

    The Nuggets and Spurs series is an interesting one, since San Antonio is long on postseason experience, while Denver is here for the first time in forever. The Spurs may not pull off the upset, but they are projected to test Denver, with the Nuggets' most likely closeout game projected as Game 7 at with 21.7%. In all, the Nuggets hold a 61% to 39% edge on the Spurs, according to the computer.

    The Portland and Oklahoma City series is probably the closes matchup of the first round, with OKC possessing arguably the two best players in the series. Home court in the playoffs, though, is no joke, and these two teams especially understand the importance of playing at home. The Blazers are projected to win 57% of the time, with the most likely outcome a Game 7 win for Portland on the Blazers' home court.

    Utah, sadly, doesn't figure to have much of a chance against Houston. James Harden, Chris Paul and company are simply too strong for Utah. The Rockets won 74% of simulations, with the Rockets winning in 5 games 24.1% of the time.

    Eastern Conference

    The only series more lopsided than the Warriors against the Clippers is the Bucks and the Pistons. The Buck won 93% of simulations. Pray for Detroit.

    Toronto torched Orlando at a 90% to 10% clip, so the top of the East is expected to cruise into the second round, where the playoffs really get going.

    Philly and Brooklyn, surprisingly, is a mismatch according to the computer. Brooklyn has a great story, but the computer gives the Nets only a 16% chance of pulling off the upset. As long as the Sixers are healthy, they're expected to cruise against the Nets. The Nets ended the series in 5 games in 29.5% of simulations, which is the most likely end to what has been a fantastic season for Brooklyn.

    Boston may not be where most people figured the Celtics would be at this stage, but the Indiana Pacers don't project to be the team to end the Celtic's season. Boston won 72% of the series in simulations, with the series ending in 5 games (24.3%) and 7 games (22.3%) the most likely conclusions.

    AccuScore will update projections and have more analysis as each round progresses

    Brandon Ingram - New Orleans Pelicans

    Opponents: UTA, LAC, MEM, SAC, WAS, SAS, SAC, ORL

    The 2019-2020 campaign has been a breakout for Brandon Ingram. In his first season with the New Orleans Pelicans, he’s posting career-highs in points (24.3), rebounds (6.3), and assists (4.3). He’s also shooting more threes than ever, upping his 1.8 attempts per game with the Los Angeles Lakers last season to 6.3 attempts per contest, nailing them at a healthy 38.7 percent.

    Ingram and the Pelicans draw a marginal schedule. It starts out tough with the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers. Surprisingly, Ingram has done quite well against both clubs. In three games against Utah this season, Ingram averaged an incredible 39.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 5.3 assists.

    The final five contests are against some poor teams. The Sacramento Kings are average at defending the small forward position in general this season. The Washington Wizards allow the second-highest field goal percentage (48.1) against Ingram’s position, not to mention they’re devastated after Davis Bertans and Bradley Beal announced that they’re sitting out. The San Antonio Spurs allow small forwards to score the fourth-most points among teams entering the Orlando bubble. Overall, this schedule is set up for Ingram to succeed and remain a dominant DFS play. It doesn’t hurt that the Pelicans have a lot to play for, meaning minutes restrictions may not apply to Ingram.


    Ben Simmons - Philadelphia 76ers

    Opponents: IND, SAC, WAS, ORL, POR, PHX, TOR, HOU

    Ben Simmons has averaged at least a double-double against 6-of-8 opponents on the Philadelphia 76ers schedule. In fact, he has averaged a triple-double against the likes of the Toronto Raptors (over three contests) and Houston Rockets. Simmons has averaged a double-double against 13 teams this season, so the ratio is particularly high for their remaining schedule.

    Simmons is said to be completely healthy and ready to go inside the Orlando bubble. The Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, and Wizards really struggle to defend the point guard position, combining to allow 24.7 points per 48 minutes against the position. Simmons should gobble up boards against foes such as the Toronto Raptors, Blazers, Indiana Pacers, and Houston Rockets. The four squads rank inside the bottom-six when it comes to rebounds allowed to point guards among teams entering the Orlando bubble. If Simmons is as healthy as we think, then he’s in for some nice season-ending performances.


    Jaylen Brown - Boston Celtics

    Opponents: MIL, POR, MIA, BKN, TOR, ORL, MEM, WAS 

    Jaylen Brown was in the midst of a breakout season, averaging 20.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, and a 38.1 percent mark from beyond the arc. The 23-year-old should have no problem with durability once the season resumes. They’re just 3.0 games behind the Raptors for the two-seed and 2.5 games ahead of the Miami Heat, so they’ll need to play their regulars to at least maintain their position.

    Brown and the Boston Celtics draw some favorable matchups for shooting guards. The Memphis Grizzlies, Wizards, Blazers, Magic, and Heat combine to allow shooting guards to score 24.1 points per 48 minutes. Memphis and Washington are two of the three-worst clubs in the NBA against the position when it comes to scoring, and the two are horrible at defending the three (allowing a combined 3.35 makes from deep per 48 minutes against shooting guards). 

    The Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors are two to avoid, but the rest of the schedule is looking juicy for Brown. Expect Brown to thrive against guys with poor defensive ratings like CJ McCollum (112.2), Evan Fournier (110.0), Dillon Brooks (108.9), and Troy Brown Jr. (113.7).

  • Get Ready for some Early NBA Day 4 Action

    We haven’t seen a full weekend slate of NBA games like this is a long time and we are very excited. It feels great to have basketball back and we have seen a ton of amazing games so far. We are so excited that we keep looking ahead and picking out our favorite games. Below is what we have circled on our schedule for Day 4 inside the NBA bubble


    Bucks vs. Rockets

    Bucks vs Rockets is what a lot of the expert NBA picks had for a finals match up early on, but now we get to see them go head to head in the bubble. One of the biggest questions for any team playing the Bucks is “how do you stop Giannis” but that question gets even bigger when your team is void of big men. The Rockets small ball lineup is going to be pushed to its limits when it goes up against the Bucks. Will the Bucks even trot out a Lopez brother on the court? This game has a lot of questions and we can’t wait to get to the bottom of them. This Rockets vs Bucks prediction tries to answer some of those question, but you are going to have to tune in once and for all to find out.

    Blazers vs. Celtics

    Two under the radar contenders are matched up head to head when the Celtics take on the Blazers. Although the Blazers hadn’t played up to their usual standards during the regular season they may have benefited the most from the time off. Nearly all the Blazers’ big men are back and healthy in the Orlando bubble. The Celtics are a great team with a lot of skill, but their weakness is the big man. Enes Kanter is going to have his hands full with his old team and this Blazers Celtics prediction breaks it all down. Sunday can not come soon enough.

    Kings vs. Magic

    Gamblers have their eyes on the Kings and Magic game this Sunday because two different play styles are going to clash. The Kings and Magic both have to put out their best efforts in the play in games so we expect this to be low scoring and close. The Kings are going to come right at the Magic with speed, while the Magic are going to slow the ball down and play through their big men. This Magic vs Kings prediction has a better breakdown on all the data for this game, take a lot and find your best bets.


    Mavs vs. Suns

    Two of the best young guards in the league will be going at each other when the Mavs play the Suns on Sunday. The Mavs have the much better overall team, but the Suns have the star power. Devin Booker is able to get hot any night, and when he does get hot, we have seen some of the best defenders in the NBA have trouble containing him. Luka Doncic on the other hand will look to keep dominating his opponents. The Mavs are trying their best to improve their playoff position, so you know they won’t take it light on the Suns here. This Suns vs Mavericks prediction has all the data you need to make an informed bet on the game. We are leaning Mavs here but check out the prediction to get the full scoop.



  • Guide to NBA and College Basketball Expert Picks

    Understanding AccuScore’s NBA and College Basketball Expert Picks

    Need help understanding AccuScore's basketball picks? AccuScore may look a bit different because we've updated our look to make things easier for our members. It's still the same great simulations and layout, but now, it's easier to read than ever.

    There are two views: The Graph View and the Grid View (better for college basketball).

    The Graph View: Updated

    After updating our graph view, spread and totals picks are more clearly labeled than ever before.

    NBA Guide

    For each pick above, we have assigned a number to help explain how to read each of AccuScore's expert picks for every game: Totals, Spreads, Side Value and Moneyline:

    1. The Totals in this example is Over 217.0 point, meaning that more of AccuScore's simulations went over than under the 217.0 total points line. The 59.4% listed below the "OVER 217.0" refers to the percentage of simulations that went over the 217.0 point when AccuScore played the game out 10,000 times. Below that, the pick is identified as a one star pick, meaning the trends involving totals picks with these two teams, along with other trends based on lines and sport-wide, are not strong.

    2. The spread pick in this example is LAC+3. The LA Clippers were three-point underdogs in this example, and AccuScore's simulations had the Clippers losing by fewer than three points or winning outright in 62% of simulations. This is listed as a two star trends pick.

    3.The Clippers were moneyline underdogs in Vegas in this game. AccuScore had them winning 55.7% of simulations, while Vegas had them only winning 42.9% of the time. As such, there is value on picking the Clippers on the moneyline at +132. More definitively, there is 12.78% Side Value on picking the Clippers to win on the moneyline. This is identified as a 2-star trends pick.

    4.The moneyline pick is pretty straight forward in that AccuScore's simulations resulted in the Clippers winning 55.7% of the the time. If there is any team that is more than 50% to win, it is the moneyline pick. That isn't to do with any value, but it's the most likely result according to AccuScore's simulations.

    If you click on the “full forecast” box, you can play around with slider tools that allow you to adjust the spreads and totals lines to see AccuScore's probabilities at various other lines. Also, the full forecast has player projections for both teams.

    Grid View

    To get to the grid view, take a look at the red arrow above and click on the three lines. The graph symbol allows you to switch back to the graph view. Due to the number of games in College Basketball, the grid view is the default view for that sport. Also, you can type in team abbreviations in the search box (green arrow) and find any game you’re looking for faster. The graph view is the default view for most other sports, but switching to the grid view is the same process for every sport.

    Understanding the Grid View

    Basketball Grid View

    Let’s use an example from another NBA game to illustrate the grid view: Washington vs Charlotte

    Let’s go column by column to understand what everything means in the grid view. Acc Sim% simply lists AccuScore’s simulation calculations, which lists Washington as an 39.5% underdog. Conversely, Charlotte is 60.3% favorite, according to AccuScore's simulations. That’s easy enough.

    Odds% is AccuScore converting the public odds into a percentage. Before you get worried and think something is wrong, the percentage is over 100% because bookies add a bit of juice to their end. While we removed that juice in the past and converted odds to be out of 100%, leaving the Vig in actually allows for a clearer look at true side value because it doesn’t arbitrarily push down Vegas’ odds as a percentage.

    In this case, Vegas oddsmakers are saying there is a 54.13% chance of Washington winning and a 48.31% chance of Charlotte winning. Looking at it side-by-side with AccuScore’s Sim%, the side value is clearly on Charlotte. AccuScore has Charlotte as a favorite, while Vegas has Charlotte as an underdog.

    The next column is “PS” shows AccuScore's point spread pick at Charlotte +1.5, which makes sense considering AccuScore has Charlotte as the moneyline favorite.

    Next, we have the “OU” and “Acc OU” column. The first number (231.5) is the Over/Under line set by Vegas oddsmakers. The number below it is the Over/Under line AccuScore calculated (238). In this example, AccuScore's totals line is higher than Vegas' totals line, so AccuScore's pick is the Over 231.5.

    The final three columns are ML, SV, and Total, and all of them simply list the star-rated picks. These star ratings are indicative of previous team, sports and lines trends related to the game.

    Note: AccuScore still offers the ability to change lines and change spreads by clicking on the team names in the grid view. Also, you can see written previews for every game, top trends and player projections.

    Hot Trends - NHL & NBA Playoffs

    Cashing in with NHL playoffs

    The hockey season is approaching its pinnacle point--the Stanley Cup finals. But first, we need to figure out which teams are going to proceed to the finals. With the first round all but over, let’s look back how accurate Accuscore predictions have been at the start of the NHL playoffs.

    When betting outright winners in moneyline markets, 100 dollars in 42 games played so far have converted to 900 profit so far. Any bettor would take that. Another 400 dollar profit has been recorded by betting the same games on side value bets.

    In Europe, hockey leagues are in final stages. During the regular season and also in playoffs, the best profits have been recorded from totals betting. KHL provided a playoff profit of 500, while Liiga in Finland scored profits of 210 during the playoffs. Many of these players will head to ice hockey World Championship starting next week. Accuscore simulates every game from this tournament, as well. As a reminder, AccuScore recorded profits of 870 and 190 dollars from side value and totals betting, respectively, in the 2017 World Championships.

    NBA Playoffs - Early Returns

    NBA playoffs are in full speed as well. Golden State and Philadelphia proceeding to the second round were not surprises, but the New Orleans Pelicans 4-0 swept over Portland wasn’t included into most predictions.

    So far, the best betting results based on Accuscore predictions have been seen in side value betting. Even though some favorites have been struggling, we have been able to secure 91 dollars profit in playoffs. This is expected to be increasing, because simulations will catch up hot teams better during second round of playoffs.

    Baseball Trends - Fire Week

    Baseball season has been struggled with cold weather in many places since start of the season. However, bettors who have followed Accuscore moneyline bets have been hot during the last week. With 100 bet for every MLB game during the last seven days, 1414 dollars profit have been recorded. That would keep you warm for a while. One nugget from totals betting is the trend of Washington Nationals playing on the road. Accuscore has predicted 10/11 correct of these game totals.

    Bulls face Lakers: Tuesday Night Free Preview

    Lakers vs Bulls

    The Los Angeles Lakers are slight 56 percent favorites over the Chicago Bulls. Based on Accuscore’s simulations, the Bulls are projected to shoot 43.9 percent from the field, while the Lakers are forecasted to shoot 45.5 percent. Tonight, the Lakers have the rebounding advantage at 48.8 to 46.1. One reason for the slight advantage for the Lakers is that they are committing fewer turnovers at 12.3 vs 15.6 for the Bulls. However, the Bulls make 11 three pointers on 34.8 percent from distance compared to the Lakers hitting 7 three pointers on 30.6 percent.

    This could be a head-to-head matchup between top rookies from both teams Lauri Markkanen from Chicago and Lonzo Ball from the Lakers. Simulations predict that it is center Brook Lopez that would tally highest points amount for the Lakers. Ball should get the highest amount of assists in the game.

    AccuScore Odds Analysis

    Betting lines show the Lakers as clear favorites for this game. Their moneyline for the win is -195 that is around 65% probability to win this ballgame. Since AccuScore has the Lakers winning at a 56-percent clip, the side value is picking Chicago. If you have been betting on every side value in NBA games during this season according to Accuscore simulations, you would have 543 dollars profit in your pocket.

    The Total line for the game in simulation is 207, but Vegas lines give higher numbers (210.5). Since start of the season Accuscore’s total predictions have generated 1820 dollars profit with bet of 100 dollar per game. Thus far, AccuScore has been correct on the Lakers' total line in 11 of the 17 games. For Tuesday, the computer likes the Under.

    NBA Futures: 2017-18 Win Totals for Every Team

    AccuScore's NBA Side Value Picks were over +10,900 last season, and AccuScore has picks against the spread, on totals, on moneyline and, of course, on side value for every game: NBA Picks

    The 2017-18 NBA season is here, and AccuScore simulated out every game 10,000 times to project out win totals for every team, and as we're accustomed to doing, we placed those win totals next to Las Vegas' win totals lines so that you can see the best value bets according to the AccuScore computer. Notably, the computer believes the Golden State Warriors will win 70 games, meaning the Warriors will become the first team to cross the 70-win mark multiple times, and the computer projects the Warriors to hit those all-time heights twice in a three year span.

    Also, the computer is down on the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks, with the three biggest markets in the NBA projected to feature four teams that all fail to hit 30 wins on the season. Chicago is projected to finish with an NBA-worst 20 wins, while the Lakers and Knicks rebuilding jobs have two of the NBA's marquee franchises handing in the 26-28 win range.

    Boston is projected to win 60 games and lead the Eastern Conference in wins for the second straight year, and Cleveland is projected to finish second. As a note, these projections came before Gordon Hayward's horrific injury, but Boston finishing above Cleveland in the regular season was the computer's preseason pick, so we'll stick with it.

    Out West, the Warriors are the best team in the league, but San Antonio has competition with Houston, Minnesota and Oklahoma City all projected to win over 50 games and stack up the Western Conference Playoffs.

    NBA Finals: Game 4 Prop Bet

    The Golden State Warriors are one win away from a historic 16-0 postseason as they head into Game 4 of the NBA Finals Friday night. The fans were finally treated to a close, competitive contest in Game 3, but the Warriors pulled out a 118-113 victory as the Cavaliers failed to score a basket in the final few minutes of action.

    The Warriors winning this series is practically a done deal, and the majority of the media, and betting public feel Game 4 will be the final game of the NBA season.

    All of AccuScore's Game 4 Picks: Click Here

    AccuScore sim data has a bit more faith in the Cavs extending the series and escaping the embarrassment of being swept than do Vegas odds makers. Cleveland's getting +140 on the money line, indicating about a 41-to-42 percent chance of winning.

    Sim data, however, has that percentage up to about 46 percent, suggesting some value on a money line or spread pick on Cleveland.

    Prop Bet

    There's plenty of prop bets for Game 4, and one that caught our eye is the total points scored by Cavaliers forward Kevin Love.

    The over/under for Friday's game is set at 16.5 points.

    Through three games in the Finals, Love is averaging 17 points per game.

    In Game 1, he scored 15; 27 in Game 2, and 9 in Game 3. Given the way he's trending, the pick is the UNDER on this prop bet.

    After 10,000-plus simulations, Love is projected to finish Game 4 with 16 points on 5-of-11 shooting from the field.

    AccuScore simulates every game 10,000 times based on historical data and compares its results to the public odds to derive value and make picks

    On Tuesday night, the Philadelphia 76ers travel to face the Charlotte Hornets in AccuScore's daily free NBA forecast of the day. AccuScore analyzed the odds and actually found that Vegas has this game right, so there is not side value on either team based on the current odds. The Philadelphia 76ers are 55.1% favorites according to AccuScore and 55.2% favorites according to Vegas.

    Similarly, Charlotte +2.0 may be slightly more likely to occur than Philadelphia -2.0, but the margins are slim and neither outcome occurred in 50% of simulations. This is a close game and the Sixers are favorites on the moneyline, but there's much value to speak about on the moneyline or against the spread. So, that leaves the totals. Here, the computer does find value. With a Total points line of 214.0, 56% of AccuScore's 10,000 simulations went UNDER. The average score was Philly 106.5, Charlotte 103.4.

    Cold Weather - Hot Profits For AccuScore

    The Major League Baseball season started few weeks ago, and the Boston Red Sox have been red hot with only two losses in 11 games, but how hot have Accuscore's baseball picks been during the first few weeks of the season? Notably, games when the home team favorite had over -130 odds have been profitable when simply betting moneyline as well as side value. You would receive profit of 282 and 439 dollars, respectively, when betting 100 for every game.

    Note: Be sure to check out AccuScore's Guide to Baseball

    While baseball season is just taking its first steps of the season, the NHL is into its postseason. After 1270 regular season games, Accuscore's NHL Picks generated overall profit with side value and moneyline bets. By betting 100 dollars for every game the profit of 495 from moneyline markets and 392 from side value bets may not seem staggering, but an overall profit entering the playoffs is always a positive sign for the playoffs. In addition, season totals bets also generated profits.

    Another league that changes gears to the postseason mood is the NBA. AccuScore's NBA Side value bets generated a profit of 1,363 when every game was bet by 100 units. Also, totals wagers generated profit during this regular season. A decent 390 profit out of all games when betting total based on Accuscore predictions is always good in your pocket.

    With a full season of data to fuel the projections and both sports profitable, NBA and NHL playoffs look set for a strong postseason, and NBA playoffs picks should be updated regularly.

    Soccer leagues in Europe don’t have playoffs in the traditional sense, even though the seasons are winding down across the continent. We have been very happy with the accuracy of our predictions since start of the season in August. The total profit of $32k with 100 dollars per every game in totals and 20% side value is something that anyone would welcome.

    During the last month, Serie A Picks continue to be the best performing league predictions in Europe. This time, the profit count during the last month is 1,078 when all side value bets and totals bets from every Serie A games were summed up. Overall, the accuracy of Serie A game predictions has been very good as the season totals shows over $10k profit for all of totals and 20% side value bets.

    Finally, AccuScore has predicted every Champions League game since group stage was completed. In these 24 games, few great side values in Manchester City losses against Basel and Liverpool have built up a great profit. By betting 100 dollars in every game’s side value, the profit number currently stands at 3150 dollars! Total bets from these same games have added another 328 dollars to the same profit column. With only five matches remaining in the Champions League, we're looking for these profits to continue to grow through the semifinals and final.

    Trends: Another Profitable NFL Season, NHL & NBA on Fire

    Super Bowl ended with a surprise, as the underdog Philadelphia Eagles upset the New England Patriots. Accuscore simulations still got the totals correct in this game, but the high flying Eagles outperformed projections.

    Even though the playoffs were full of surprises, the NFL season 2017-2018 was another profitable run when looking back at bets placed in 267 games since opening kickoff. With 100 units as the bet size, the total profit from point spread, totals, moneyline and side value bets was +1786 units. This is 8th winning season since 2009, with only the 2013 season dipping below the profitability line. By following Accuscore predictions since 2009, you would have pocketed over 22k in pure profit by betting blindly on every game...you’re welcome!

    NBA Picks Performance & Trends

    But the world does not stop when NFL season ends. NBA and NHL are the other major professional leagues ongoing. Accuscore predicts every game in both of these leagues - with good results.

    Since start of the NBA season, side value and total bets have been notably accurate. The profit of +3360 from side value and +1590 from total bets have kept our customers sending thank you e-mails week after week. The last week of NBA picks has been especially strong:
    • Point Spread - 830 profit
    • Totals - 190 profit
    • Side Value - 693 profit
    • Moneyline - 76 profit

    There are game live right now! AccuScore's NBA Picks

    As a reminder, side value bets during last season produced over 10k profit in the NBA. We are currently behind that blistering pace, but the NBA should hopefully continue to provide profits as the season progresses, and +3360 is nothing to complain about.

    NBA Wednesday: Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns - Free Preview

    AccuScore played out Wednesday's contest 10,000 times to derive statistical data and make predictions, as it does for every NBA game throughout the season.

    The Detroit Pistons are heavy 76.2 percent favorites over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. One reason for this is that the Suns are shooting 44.6 percent from the field, while the Pistons are forecasted to shoot 47.4 percent. The rebounding battle is pretty even with Phoenix projected for 45.9 rebounds vs. 47.4 for Detroit. At the same time in predictions the Pistons are committing fewer turnovers at 12.7 compared to 15 for Phoenix. The Pistons also have a slight edge when we check shooting from distance. The Suns are making 7.5 three pointers on 33 percent, but the Pistons make 10.1 three pointers on 39.3 percent. That's a notable difference.

    Sportsbooks and handicappers have set the line at DET -12 with TOTAL 217. Accuscore predictions show that there is 62.2% chance for Phoenix to cover 12 points handicap. Actually, the line should be -8 based on AccuScore's simulation analysis. In terms of Totals, the UNDER is the occurred in 57% of simulations.

    Notable NBA Trends: 100 unit wager per pick:
    Totals: +3560
    Side value: +1581

    The side value for this game is on Phoenix, so that should be the moneyline bet, even though they are predicted to be underdogs with only a 24% win probability. Detroit Pistons games when betting UNDER have been a solid trend, as 13 has been correct compared to 6 wrong since start of the season. That's a return of +583.

    AccuScore's Top Betting Trends of the Week: Dec. 20, 2017

    The NFL season is approaching the climax with the playoff race heated to boiling temperatures and the best teams aiming to get first round byes. Accuscore’s predictions have been steady since start of the season. Even though against the spread (ATS) is just about breaking even, TOTALS bets have brought a profit of 1350 units with 100 units wagered on every game.

    In addition, AFC North games have been a hot trend moneybank of the season. These AFC North games have yielded +2170 profit for all of AccuScore's ATS and TOTALS picks.

    Another trend that is good to highlight is the ATS results in the games where Accuscore predicted line is within 2.5 points to Vegas line. Games fitting this criteria have resulted in profit of +2210 since start of the season.

    The NBA season has been on the way without any great upsets or disappointments. Maybe Oklahoma City hasn’t played as well as predicted, but the season is long and OKC still has time to right the ship given its new additions. With about a third of the season gone, the NBA's profitability factor can now begin to be evaluated. When betting each and every game in TOTALS, Money Line, Point Spread and Side Value markets, bettors have resulted over 1000 profit since start of the season with 100 bet. This may not be a massive return, but current season data takes time to integrate, and being positive at this stage is a great sign.

    So far, the best performing market has been NBA totals when Accuscore has predicted UNDER over 50% of the time. Vegas linemakers have seemingly adjusted their lines too much based on the NBA game changing into a 3-point shooting contest. Accuscore's TOTALS bets are +3040 on green since start of the season. During last 4 days also, Side Value bets have resulted over 400 profit. We hope that this trend continues through the Holiday season and into 2018.
