What are NBA Computer Picks
NBA computer picks, are picks and predictions for NBA matches, made by a computer. More specifically, made by the algorithm within a computer. The way this is done, is it all starts with the core NBA historical data. We use thousands of match data, team data and player data. This helps guide the algorithm to know how certain teams perform against each other, and how certain players perform relative to the teams they are playing against. This data is then pushed through our prediction computer which then provides the picks, based on moneyline, over/under and spread picks.
How do we calculate our NBA Computer Picks
As mentioned above, the computer picks for NBA are as a result of both the historical data and the AI predictive engine/computer/algorithm. BY harnessing all the historically data, we have a firm record of how teams have historically performed. Although historically behavior isn’t always the best predictor of future behavior, it is a very useful metric. We then use this to guide the AI when making predictions. This enables the NBA computer picks to take into account current performance of each team, players, and how they should perform in the next match-up.
Moneyline NBA Computer Picks
These are our most popular NBA computer picks. Moneyline is the easiest betting market to bet on and also the most popular betting market. You need to simply choose which team you think will win the match outright. All of our NBA picks make moneyline picks as the first option.
Over/Under NBA Computer Picks
O/U Picks are a fun alternative to the ML picks. For this betting market, you need to predict whether the end full-time score will be above or below the score option presented by the betting site. An example, would be for an NBA game to end with over 221.5 points or under 221.5 points. The reason for the 0.5 is to prevent a draw.
Against the Spread NBA Computer Picks
Finally, AGT or Against the Spread, is another very popular betting market for NBA computer picks. Bookmakers try and balance their books and they do this by trying to get people to bet on both sides of the field. In order to incentivize people to bet on the underdog, they give the underdog a little handicap, and this is called the spread.
Should you use NBA Computer Picks & Predictions
So, should you use our NBA computer picks? Computer picks have a number of benefits over manual picks. Firstly, it is important to remember that although a computer database is making the predictions, they were initially designed by a human. The benefits include that the predictions will be quicker, there is nothing subjective about them and they can be made for thousands of matches, simultaneously.
