Introducing a new section called www.PredictWise.com/NBA. We are going to start building these for all of the major perennial events. For the playoffs this section will include:
1) Updating table of the likelihood of winning the NBA championship and conference.
2) Updating table of the likelihood of winning the next game in each series and the series.
3) Static table of the likelihood of winning each game on the morning of the game.
4) Blog posts that will take a deeper dive into interesting things.
What is interesting right now is Brooklyn (6) v. Toronto (3) series. The prediction markets are more bullish on the Brooklyn Nets than the panel of experts we are consulting over at ESPN. That is the only major difference between the markets and the experts.
In the interest of full discloser Andrew Leonard and I were season ticket holder to the New Jersey Nets between 1994 and 1998 … we saw one home playoff game in 4 years and it did not go well for New Jersey!
