NBA Day 1 Recap

Updated: Nov 8

We started out our NBA season with quite a large slate on the books, and posted a total of 23 picks for 24 units wagered on the day. With the beginning of every new season, volatility is a concern, which is why our modeling team waits a few days after the regular season begins to collect fresh data, as this can take a few days to stabilize. Our totals went 4-4 on the day, losing -1.54 units, but our sides made up for these losses. Our sides finished 10-5 on the night, returning +6.11 units on these markets, to bring our first day to +4.57 units overall.

With a smaller slate today, the number of picks provided will be significantly less than yesterday. However, volume is what makes our system so special. A large volume of plays has two primary benefits: stable performance and bankroll turnover. By wagering on a large volume of games, we create a diversification effect, which decreases the volatility of returns. But more importantly, betting on a large proportion of games allows us to compound our advantage, generating a higher overall ROI.

We made significant model enhancements after our first live 2022-2023 season and look forward to sharing our improved product with you:

  • Refined pace estimation

  • Agile model responsiveness to changing league environment

  • Improved player minutes projections

  • Optimized unit allocation across correlated markets

  • Update betting methodology for more consistent returns
