As predicted, we have now seen a drastic shift in the curve of the NBA class ratings. As you will recall from 6 weeks ago, we witnessed a distorted shape of these ratings in terms of their graph curve. There were more Class A (greater than 666) and Class D (less than 333) teams, than Class B (500 to 666) and Class C (333 to 499). This created an inverted bell-shaped curve, totally dichotomous to the normal characteristics of this group of 30 teams win / loss percentages. As we approach the All Star break, the more familiar bell shaped curve is beginning to emerge. There are just 4 Class A teams (Chicago and Miami in East, San Antonio and OKC in West). And there are just 6 Class D teams (Tor, NJ, Wash and Char in the East, and NO and Sac in the West). Much of this change has to do with the return to health of many of the injured players of the Class D teams. Equally telling is that after approximately one half of the season has been played, the power rating of most teams is reverting to the original number posted by pre-season prognosticators. Through all the changes, this bureau has continued to excel with a current streak of 26-19 ATS in recent NBA selections. We continue to push the pace with 5 selections all in nighttime action.
