    commit to what stop asking questions because you are gonna show me a link of someone who wins and we dont know how he wins just that he does, DRH kills the line and wins all the time, he openly says his method is to beat the line. I dont really know what you are saying, honestly

    generally sure, they look at past performance and design power rankings from those past results and they ALSO use past lines, my example on series shows that past games have a very small influence on the tomorrow lines.

    warriors at home -9.5 they win that game today by 30 and tomorrow guess what they are home against the same team with same players with both teams on the same rest and magic line is -9.5 again. so you tell me do the lines come from past results or more from past lines. do you really believe we dont know the closing lines or the really closing line is one of your insider secrets that pinnacle shares with you only

    Opening lines are made from power rankings and any data on weather, injuries and a dash of salt from what the public has done in this spot in the past to get a jump on the juice. Yesterdays games results have very little impact on tomorrows games, look at the teams playing tonight that play tomorrow those lines will not move because they won big or lost big tonight and if they do it will be very slightly and probably will snap back once the sharp money starts rolling in to flatten out the line.

    Closing lines are the size dam necessary to direct the water where they need it and they are usually extremely sharp because they have the latest and most accurate information just seconds prior to the game start.

    So you think opening lines are made from power rankings? Lol

    When sharps close the line what do you think they use to make their model?

    Have you even made your own model before?

    It's quite obvious that he's just trolling, doing his best to turn the think tank in to player's talk. Just ignore him.

    answer my questions, you just keep asking questions

    everyone technically models differently
    yes I have my own model on baseball and basketball, although my baseball model comes up slightly short, my basketball model is very good.

    help me then, answer my questions and help me.

    I think openers come from models that use power rankings adjusted for injury, weather and a small tiny dash of sentiment on certain scenarios

    here are my NBA power rankings currently

    Team SAG SAG MY PR BET/SAG Combined
    Rockets 92.97 -2.97 -7.79 -4.84 -5.82
    Warriors 95.94 -5.94 -9.07 -7.22 -7.84
    Raptors 96.76 -6.76 -7.63 -6.22 -6.69
    Jazz 92.36 -2.36 -5.58 -2.92 -3.81
    Trailblazers 92.05 -2.05 -3.68 -2.33 -2.78
    Nuggets 95.06 -5.06 -4.87 -4.08 -4.34
    Celtics 95.16 -5.16 -5.26 -6.88 -6.34
    Thunder 94.33 -4.33 -6.73 -6.35 -6.48
    Seventysixers 92.16 -2.16 -5.40 -4.05 -4.50
    Cavaliers 83.37 6.63 5.21 6.97 6.39
    Bucks 95.83 -5.83 -6.80 -6.82 -6.81
    Wizards 87.49 2.51 0.09 0.62 0.44
    Spurs 91.07 -1.07 -3.34 -1.17 -1.89
    Clippers 90.24 -0.24 -3.44 -1.40 -2.08
    Heat 88.95 1.05 0.90 0.58 0.69
    Timberwolves 89.93 0.07 -3.92 -1.38 -2.23
    Pacers 93.53 -3.53 -4.29 -3.79 -3.95
    Pelicans 91.45 -1.45 -3.66 -1.68 -2.34
    Hornets 89.05 0.95 -3.67 -1.84 -2.45
    Lakers 92.19 -2.19 -4.09 -3.53 -3.72
    Pistons 88.88 1.12 -1.03 2.42 1.27
    Mavericks 89.12 0.88 -1.96 -0.38 -0.91
    Nets 87.62 2.38 0.50 1.22 0.98
    Kings 87.67 2.33 0.37 1.63 1.21
    Magic 86.38 3.62 0.80 2.38 1.86
    Bulls 82.05 7.95 3.87 7.00 5.95
    Knicks 83.58 6.42 4.52 5.61 5.25
    Hawks 81.42 8.58 4.40 7.70 6.60
    Suns 84.07 5.93 5.56 6.61 6.26
    Grizzlies 89.3 0.70 -1.22 1.02 0.28

    My PR column is my power rankings and they are what I use to model games! you can add roughly 3 for home team and you will see how close my rankings are!

    here are my totals rankings its a plus minus system which honestly right now has been working rough but historically has done real well

    Warriors 6.73
    Rockets 1.11
    Raptors -0.14
    Celtics -3.41
    Spurs 1.61
    Cavaliers -6.78
    Thunder 2.67
    Wizards 4.37
    Timberwolves 0.26
    Trailblazers -2.05
    Jazz -4.86
    Bucks 5.88
    Nuggets -5.47
    Pistons -3.22
    Pacers -7.78
    Seventysixers 4.80
    Pelicans 8.86
    Heat -5.45
    Clippers 4.17
    Hornets 2.82
    Knicks 1.98
    Mavericks -1.65
    Lakers 5.04
    Grizzlies -13.83
    Magic -5.53
    Nets -0.07
    Bulls -5.69
    Kings 9.82
    Suns -3.06
    Hawks 7.61

    to use my totals its pretty easy just take scoring average and adjust for the scoring avg example
    Rockets 1.11
    Heat -5.45
    so league total avg is 220.6 subtract -4.34 and you get 216.26 and then you round so 216.5 and then adjust for injuries and as you can see Heat have lots of key injuries so it will drop accordingly, I aim to be within 3 points of the total and 2 points on the sides
    I average on the season 2.49 off on totals and 1.37 on sides

    I also dont just use power rankings to get a line, I adjust using a comparable analysis of the past 4 opponents for each team in the game and add that to the power ranking numbers to get a line

    my way of doing it is definitely different but that is because my work background is in comparable valuation not data science but apples oranges really!

    also here are my lines for 12-21 tomorrows NBA games, I have not adjusted for injuries yet, what I do is I wait for lines to come out with decent limits and then if I am off a ton on a game before I bet it I check and adjust for injuries on that game before I bet!

    12/21 Pistons 219.5 221.5
    12/21 Hornets -4.5 -5
    12/21 Cavaliers 211 205
    12/21 Raptors -13.5 -15
    12/21 Pacers -2 -2
    12/21 Nets 212 207.5
    12/21 Hawks 230.5 235
    12/21 Knicks -1.5 -1
    12/21 Bucks 222.5 224
    12/21 Celtics -1 -1
    12/21 Magic -2 -2
    12/21 Bulls 205 202.5
    12/21 Timberwolves 222 225.5
    12/21 Spurs -2.5 -2
    12/21 Grizzlies 215.5 213
    12/21 Kings -0.5 0
    12/21 Jazz 212 213.5
    12/21 Trailblazers -1 0
    12/21 Pelicans 231 231.5
    12/21 Lakers -2.5 -3

    first is my actual mode numbers, second is a "check" I made which uses past lines to get an estimated line.

    What does "comparable valuation" mean? Is that like real estate?

    my injury adjustments are done by the following
    player team value
    add up value of all active players on team
    then adjust for the opponent
    example Lebron is worth 6 as a laker now if he played for Warriors he would be worth 4.5 to the side
    Booker is worth 6 to the Suns but if he was a Warrior he would be worth 2.5 to 3

    Hey Dan,

    How long have you been using your power rankings to bet on NBA games? How many units have you been up each of the past seasons? It's been rough for you so far this year. Are you looking to tweak your rankings or do you think it will revert back as the season progresses?

    I have 1 NBA season last year I won and my line value was almost 2.2% subtract 1.1 for margin made 1%ish for 2017
    this season I have been getting killed on NBA my totals seem off, but the NBA totals seem crazy to me no support of this in data just seem crazy all over the place with big swings that implies to me I am not the only one strruggling with totals this year. I have one WNBA season using the same model and it killed it I had nearly 3% above margin CLV and my record was nuts like a 61% win rate but that is just luck of the draw but the model is very very very solid dude. I know people think I am an idiot cause I dont just agree with senior players here but I am far from a rookie in comparative analysis and that is all this is. Look at my lines and see once BOL or the closers and you will see I know what I am doing. I always ask any of the touts or smart guys to give me lines on games before they come out if they cant, I usually call bullshit on them and rarely put any weight on them. There are 1000s of guys like charlie 2 shoes or whatever that win because they create 200 accounts and once one starts winning, they start touting that one, its complete scam BS, if you know this game you can tell me very accurately what the line will be on tomorrow's NBA games for most games, of course injuries change that but we all understand that. I will win in the NBA. I started out like 5-20 but since then been at 52% or something about where it should be honestly

    I thought you set the bar pretty high for dumb ass shit when you said we dont get the closing line and now you jumped way over that bar with this one. You think that everyone models the same, LMAO, come on dude, is that really what you are saying?

    and why wont you answer the questions I asked you?

    @tsty
    how is the line created?
    can we get the actual closing line?
    can you win by only beating the closing line?

    also @tsty are you the guy who makes the line and hides the closing line, are you "they" and tsty is just a misspelling of they?

    EVERYONE models the SAME the only difference is what they test and how much weight they give each test
    Come on dude, do you see the bad parts of this argument.

    yes and we all know power rankings are not the sole basis for linemaking, sentiment goes in and some math some little algos and other stuff, but essentially its PR's with some salt and that salt can be sentiment, betting history, and a few other little things. so if that is your secret sauce, its not so secret
