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 Thursday 1-22-15! 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.
Utah Jazz (20.7)
Milwaukee Bucks (23.8)
San Antonio Spurs (9.7)
Chicago Bulls (12.4)
Boston Celtics (2.3)
Portland Trail Blazers (36.3)
Brooklyn Nets (13.9)
LA Clippers (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 Thursday fit the 20 point differential and the trend analysis I use.
Portland is missing 36.3 points per game tonight with leading scorer Aldredge among those that are out and have a 34 point different with Boston in my Rocketman Injury Ratings. However, my trend work has no uncovered anything significant to make Boston a play tonight.
PLAY ON: None
FAVORITE PLAY WITH THIS SYSTEM TONIGHT: None
Thanks and good luck today!
