NBA Basketball Predictions


The Predictor was designed to use computer estimates from the Inference Index to predict future NBA games. Unless noted in the “Notes/Line Mover” section of the prediction, the Predictor does NOT account for injuries, or any other factors that may cause the outcome to be swayed in one direction or another. See my disclaimer page for more on the benefits/downfalls about these predictions: Predictions Disclaimer.

Also note, that the Predictor should be used for entertainment purposes only. However, if you do wish to gamble (at your own risk), then I highly suggest reading my blog post: The Top 5 Online Sportsbooks for U.S. Players.

All upcoming NBA basketball predictions are listed below along with the Index’s picks for the odds to win each of the NBA games straight-up (SU) and predictions for each game. Also, see our 2016-2017 NBA Season Prediction where we simulate the season 1,000 times to project win/loss totals and playoff probabilities.
