The most comprehensive single-page advanced statistical NBA game breakdown on the internet.  Also includes a proprietary score prediction model to determine value against the spread.  What would have taken you hours of web research to compile and compare all this advanced data, you can now download each game on a single 8.5x11 page for free in a matter of minutes.

*Note:  Significant injuries as of 1:00 PM EST were factored into the score predictions.

This is great stuff si1ly and even though it won't change my pick (which will go against a value of 3 points) such contribution is much appreciated. Good luck with your plays!

Yeah the score projection model is still in its infancy.  I try and think of these sheets as more of a research tool.  It has the majority of the advanced metrics that should be used when handicapping an NBA game.  Nowhere else can you find all of this in one place.  Nor can you find it presented in a side by side comparison for each game.  It's more about the data collection than it is about the prediction.

I just hope that people find their own ways to use these sheets to their advantage to not only save time but win some money too.

That's not point differential.  That's PER (Player efficiency rating).  It's a very complicated formula but it does way more than looking at scoring production.  It includes steals, free throw rates, rebounds, assists.  It's a comprehensive stat that can be used to determine who has an advantage at each position.

It takes a lot of time just to produce and publish these each day.  If I were to do write-ups on each game like that it would be asking to much of my time.  Handicapping is just a hobby - it's not my profession.

I made the format such that you can print these out if you want to and write in those notes under the injuries or game notes section.  It's user friendly in that way.

So whats the limit on max eff.,like is it a 1-4 with 4 being top of scale,just trying to understand the diff.by position.

Here's the wikipedia article on PER if you want to know more about it's origin and formula:  PER.wiki

Here's how individual PER numbers should be understood:

A Year For the Ages: 35.0
Runaway MVP Candidate: 30.0
Strong MVP Candidate: 27.5
Weak MVP Candidate: 25.0
Bona fide All-Star: 22.5
Borderline All-Star: 20.0
Solid 2nd option: 18.0
3rd Banana: 16.5
Pretty good player: 15.0
In the rotation: 13.0
Scrounging for minutes: 11.0
Definitely renting: 9.0
The Next Stop: DLeague 5.0


So here's how you should analyze the comparison data:  Looking at the DAL@CHI game you see that CHI has a +2.1 PER and DAL has a -1.3 PER at the Center position.  The differential is CHI +3.4.  In a league where the majority of starters range between a PER of 10-20.  +3.4 can make a big difference.  Chicago's center is roughly 30% better than Dallas center.  That's the difference between a guy that averages 15-3-7 and  20-4-10.  You get the idea.

No idea.  Haven't had the time to keep track of that.  It's a little late in the season too for this to matter.  Teams are really banged up at this point and there are huge variances in motivation.  Both of those variables really throw off the accuracy of the model.  I have all the links posted for the last three weeks.  If somebody wanted to back-check be my guest.

Hi si1ly,

THANK YOU so much for the 2H advice on the Spurs last night.  I was down for the day yesterday and because of your post/advice it saved me. I broke even yesterday and that is still a winner in my book.  Please post any of your thoughts or ideas during half time.

BOL tonight and Greatly Appreciated,

 AND

Glad to hear it.  Spurs are a dangerous team.  They have the offensive weaponry to beat anybody in the West.  I'm just not sure if they have the defense to compete with the power houses in the East.

Word is Derek Rose is playing.  Glad I got in at -7 because Rose is worth 2 points on the line.  Should move back to -9 by tip if he in fact is starting.
