What oddsmakers see as the most competitive series didnt turn out that way in the simulations. Though many of the series were competitive going six?or seven?games, Los Angeles came out on top in 13 of the 15.

This was a pretty competitive series which saw Toronto usually win in six or seven?games. The young Bucks team put up a fight but the Raptors and home court were just too much.

In the one big shocker from the Playoff simulation?its the No. 8?seeded Bulls stunning the Celtics. In betting odds this series is more like a 3/6 than a 1/8, ?but still this would be a big upset. Chicago won most often 4-1 while Boston generally took six?games when it advanced.

The battle between the two MVP candidates, Russell Westbrook and James Harden, turned out to be as close as they come. The Rockets overall won in more impressive shion as they finished off Oklahoma City several times in sweeps or five?games. On the other side the Thunder needed seven?games on three?occasions and six games in its other four?victories.

The struggles of the Cavs since the All-Star Break are nowhere to be seen here as LeBron James and company steamrolled the Pacers. Cleveland swept Indiana five?times though they were taken to a seventh game on two?different occasions.

Golden State had no trouble dispatching the Blazers, winning all 15 series and never once being pushed to a full seven?games. The Warriors won 4-1 in 8 of the simulations and pulled off four?sweeps.
