On the eve of the start of the NBA Playoffs I wanted to share with you my Straigt Up and Pointspread Rankings of the 16 Playoff teams based on the several models I use that reward teams for wins (SU and ATS) for wins over good teams and penalized teams for losses (SU and ATS) to bad teams. Teams are awarded or subtracted points in every game they play with the point values weighted according to level (quality) of opponent, as measured by a team's CURRENT winning percentage and Class level (as opposed to the opponent's class at the time the game is played).
With the above as background here are the Rankings.
First, the STRAIGHT UP Rankings --
L A Clippers
L A Lakers
You might use the above Rankings when looking to play individual Series or the Conference/NBA Championship Futures.
Here are the ATS Rankings which might be of use in handicapping individual games --
Best of luck to all during the Playoffs. Let's all have a GREAT NBA Post season!
Thanks for ALL the Info Bud! GL & Let's ALL Cash OUT!
