**

The above data gives you a snap shot of where you have the advantage during the first round. For example, whoever AccuScore selects O/U when the Lakers host the Hornets has 61% accuracy this year, thus creating an advantage for you. We would highly recommend our pick in that game. On the flip side, we would suggest taking a pass early on when the Spurs are at home vs. the Grizzlies, as well as when Los Angeles travels to New Olreans.
