In this work, we present an artificial neural network-based prediction model for underdog teams in NBA matches (ANNUT). We describe the steps of our supervised algorithm, starting from data acquisition to prediction selection. We talk about prediction selection because the final stage of our model is represented by a filtration phase. In this phase, the outputs returned from the neural network are evaluated according to how the events are quoted on one of the most famous bookmakers… Expand

Forecasting in the NBA and other team sports: Network effects in action
TLDR
This work proposes two network-based models to predict the behavior of teams in sports leagues that are parameter-free, that is, they do not have a single parameter, and moreover are sport-agnostic: they can be applied directly to any team sports league. Expand
Predicting the Outcome of NBA Playoffs Based on the Maximum Entropy Principle
TLDR
This article formalizes the problem of predicting NBA game results as a classification problem and applies the principle of Maximum Entropy to construct an NBA Maximum entropy model that fits to discrete statistics for NBA games, and then predicts the outcomes of NBA playoffs using the model.

Basketball predictions in the NCAAB and NBA: Similarities and differences
TLDR
It is found that adjusted efficiencies work well for the NBA, the NCAAB regular season is not ideal for training to predict its post-season, the two leagues require classifiers with different bias, and Naive Bayes predicts the outcome of NBA playoff series well. Expand
