Working Paper: Las Vegas Point Spreads and Quantifying the Value of an NBA Player.
This paper uses the method developed by Hoffer and Pincin (2019) to estimate the first marginal product estimates of NBA players using Las Vegas Sportsbooks’ individual player point spread values (PSVs). Starting with the individual PSVs, we predict PSVs from performance statistics and use the predicted values to estimate a player’s marginal product. We then compare the NBA estimations with existing, better-established measures of player performance, including Player Efficiency Rating, Win Shares, and Value Over Replacement Player. The results show that the estimates using statistical performance to predict PSVs are in-line with the other estimates using statistical performance to predict the better-established measures of player performance. We conclude that PSVs are a comparable measure of marginal product to existing NBA performance composites.View comments →
