Throughout the NBA playoffs, we'll be asking you to predict the outcomes of games and playoff series.
Your participation is voluntary, and your predictions will be anonymous. Forecasts made by the panel may be published by ESPN and used for academic research.
The NBA Playoffs Forecasting panel is a joint effort of Microsoft Research and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. We do not expect that participation will result in material benefits or risks. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
