NBA Playoff Predictions Update 3 (4-2)

June 5, 2012

(This article was first published on R, Ruby, and Finance, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This is my third update to my original post on predicting the NBA playoffs with an algorithm. Here are updates 1 and 2.

The algorithm correctly predicted a Boston win, but missed on the Spurs/Thunder game, so it is currently 4-2. Haven’t had any time to update yet, so I will only be able to give you predictions for the next games, unfortunately: Predicting a Miami win and an Oklahoma City win.
