Want to predict the winner of the NBA finals with better than a 91% accuracy? Here’s your cheat sheet. Bet on teams that are either:
1. Domiciled in one of the three major markets — NYC, Chicago, or L.A. — which provides the team a bigger war chest — and offers more lucrative endorsement deals.
2. Located in an income tax free state.
Actually the article is outdated. Since being written in the spring of this year, another NBA finals has come and gone. The two teams in the finals were from tax-free states — again. Hence the historical probability now exceeds 92%.
