The Hollinger company has released their NBA playoff odds for the current season. Hollinger uses a computer program in which the computer plays out the remainder of the season 5,000 times to see the potential range of projected outcomes. The results reveal the most likely win-loss record for each team -- and what the odds are for each team to make the NBA playoffs.
According to Hollinger, The Chicago Bulls are a 100% lock to make the playoffs with a projected best case record of 60-6. The Miami Heat are the only other team that is considered a 100% lock.â†µ
There are three teams according to Hollinger that have a zero percent chance of making the playoffs. These teams are the New Orleans Hornets, Washington Wizards, and Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats.â†µ
Based on these findings, if the playoffs began today the Bulls would play the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the playoffs.â†µ
