Here are predictions for today’s games in the NBA playoffs from Bias Free Sports based on our latest computer rankings. To read this chart, the team on the left is the home team. Subtracting the visiting team’s rating from the home team’s rating gives the predicted outcome (the number in the far right column). If the number is negative, the visiting team is favored, if the number is positive, the home team is favored. 3.5 points is added to the home team’s number for home court advantage. For example, in the Clippers-Memphis game, when you add the 3.5 points to the LA Clippers rating and then subtract the Grizzlies rating, the Clippers should be favored by 3.73 points. You can then compare that to the Vegas line. If the Clippers are favored by 3, then you would want to take the Clippers because the 3.73 point differential is greater than three.
