I was 161-135-7 on the Free Analysis in the 2015-16 basketball season (38-32-2 on Free Best Bets and 123-103-5 on Opinions). Over 9 seasons I am 162-149-8 on my Free Basketball Best Bets and 904-810-38 on my Free Basketball Opinions.

I was 1-1 on my Sunday NBA Best Bets winning a 1-Star Best Bet on Boston -2 (won by 6 at Detroit) and losing a 1-Star Best Bet on Portland +5.5, who lost by 6 at Toronto.

It’s been a rough NBA season so far but I’m confident that I’ll be profitable going forward, as my ratings have actually been good in general – just not on the games I’ve chosen as Best Bets. Opinions are winning and other line value games that I’m passing on because a good situation applies to the other side are also winning. The fact that my ‘line value plays’ have been profitable overall and not on the Best Bets is incredibly frustrating. Part of that is due to losing 68% of the close games, which is just bad luck.

I am just 16-34-4 on games decided by 3 points or less (based on the end of regulation score) and I’ve had two underdogs (+5 and +3.5) that have failed to cover in overtime (a 4 game swing) with zero favorites that have covered in OT. The negative variance in close games and negative OT luck has accounted for most of my NBA deficit this season.

My bad record on close games and games decided by OT is not an excuse. It’s a fact. And, the fact is my handicapping has been considerably better than my record. I wouldn’t be having a good season if my luck was neutral but it certainly wouldn’t be nearly as bad.

My NBA Best Bets have a total line differential (the difference between the margin of victory/defeat and the spread) of +60 points this season, which is in contrast to my losing record and another indication that my fate should be better. I’ve never had such a drastic difference between my projected win percentage based on average line differential and my actual win-loss record and I expect that gap to close.

I expect my NBA handicapping to be profitable going forward, as I trust that years of profitable results is more indicative of my future than what’s happened so far this season. It’s highly unlikely that I’ll continue to win just 33% of the close games.

I am 87-107-4 on NBA Best Bets and 160-199-9 on a Star Basis (10-17-1 on 3-Stars, 53-58-3 on 2-Stars, and 24-32 on 1-Stars) for -58.9 Stars.
