“Why do you like this team more than the other?” is a popular question that will surely become even more popular during the playoffs when certain teams are favoured over others in a single series.

This page will be for the match-ups, showing how the two teams in each series stack up to one another based on the GSVA (Game Score Value Added) of every player on their roster. GSVA is basically a player’s projected Game Score using their last three years of data, weighted by recency and regressed to the mean. This is basically the heart of the win probabilities: assigning a win value to each player and adding it all up to find the team’s strength.

Here’s how each team measures up at the start of each round. You can find their series probabilities here.
