HANDICAPPING THE NBA INJURY REPORT – Saturday 1-14-17

Every day I look at the NBA injury report. I start off with the first team and see who is listed on the report. These are the average number of points these teams will be without tonight.

HERE IS MY TABLE FOR CALCULATING INJURIES:

OUT: Take players average points per game and multiply by 1 DOUBTFUL: Take players average points per game and multiply by .75 QUESTIONABLE: Take players average points per game and multiply by .50 PROBABLE: Take players average points per game and multiply by .25

Here are the results for today’s NBA matchups for Saturday 1-14-17!  Beside the team you will find the calculated Rocketman Injury Rating.  The Higher the Injury rating means the more points per game they will be without.

LA Lakers (9)
LA Clippers (25.63)

New Orleans (7.28)
Chicago (23.7)

San Antonio (2.7)
Phoenix (0)

Philadelphia(30.6)
Washington (6.7)

Orlando (0)
Utah (0)

Hope this helps out some. This system hits big percentages when we have a differential of 20 or more and the trends add up to leaning to that same team. It takes a little time to do this every day but it pays off in the end!   No plays for Saturday fit the 20 point differential AND the trend analysis I use.

One play made the initial cut but when looking deeper and doing trend analysis on each game, the trends go with the opposite side giving us no plays with this overall system tonight.  Washington made the injury ranking cut with Embiid resting tonight for Philadelphia. 

PLAY ON:  None

FAVORITE PLAY WITH THIS SYSTEM TONIGHT:  None

Thanks and good luck today!
