Microsoft's Bing prediction engine is offering who it thinks will win in the NBA Finals pro basketball championship series, which starts tonight between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers.


In a blog post, Microsoft says:

Consistent with what we shared prior to the playoffs, the Bing Predicts models continue to show that Golden State will beat Cleveland in 5 games, with 3 home game wins (Games 1, 2, and 5) and a split in Cleveland for Games 3 and 4.

The blog post adds that during this year's NBA playoffs, the Bing Predicts engine was successful at picking the winners of each game 75% of the time.
