2017-18 NBA Regular-Season Win Totals

When it comes to betting on professional basketball before the season, there’s no shortage of options. Year in and year out, one of the most popular wagers is gauging the OVER/UNDER regular-season win totals for every club in the Association.

If you’re looking for such a thing, online sportsbook Bovada has you covered. The shop has been offering odds speculating how the league will shake down for months now, but with the campaign about to begin, it’s worth checking in on how a wild offseason has changed the landscape of the league.

It’s no surprise to see the reigning champion Golden State Warriors pacing the Western Conference with an OVER/UNDER of 67.5, but it’s worth noting the new-look Boston Celtics (55.5) have a higher number than LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers (53.5). With new weapons in tow in the form of Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, the Celtics will be under intense scrutiny to live up to the hype.

Everyone may still be fighting over the Warriors’ and Cavaliers’ scraps next year but a few big offseason moves have seen an already lopsided league become even more top-heavy.

With next year’s picture starting to come into focus, sportsbooks have begun the process of setting team win totals for the 2017-18 season and it’s the defending champs who own the highest OVER/UNDER at 67.5 over at BetOnline.

Finishing the 2016-17 regular season with 67 wins, the Warriors are the favorites to hoist yet another Larry O’Brien Trophy and with virtually the same team returning next year, a 70-win season is not out of the question.

Despite the addition of Nick “Swaggy P” Young making it look like the Dubs are assembling the All Shaqtin’ a Fool Squad, Golden State is still by far the best team in the association and it will take nothing short of a miracle to knock them off their pinnacle in the West. If Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson can stay healthy, the Dubs’ record-setting 73-win season could potentially be topped up by a win or two in 2017-18.

The second-highest win total (56.5) belongs to a new-look Houston Rockets team that will be trying to build on its 55-win season. James Harden excelled running the point for the high-flying Rockets last year so there’s sure to be an adjustment period with Chris Paul set to take the reins in Houston’s backcourt.

No line has been set for the Celtics so far with the Gordon Hayward signing still sinking in but it’s likely that the C’s will be given a total in the range of 55-57 after Danny Ainge and company tangibly improved a squad that won 53 games a season ago. At first glance, the Celtics look like a team that could now compete with the Cavs in a seven-game playoff series and it appears we’re destined for a rematch between the two clubs in the 2017-18 Eastern Conference final.

Speaking of the Cavs, can they eclipse their win total of 54.5? Not if you ask LeBron. The King couldn’t care less about the regular season and with the Wizards, Celtics, Bucks and 76ers all on the rise, there’s a good chance Cleveland fails to reach 50. It was clear for the Cavs how beneficial it was for them to rest LeBron before the playoffs so don’t be surprised if he sits out even more contests in next year’s campaign.

Taking the honors for the lowest total on the board is the Brook-less Nets. They’ve been assigned an embarrassing 21.5-win number that a roster almost completely devoid of talent could easily go UNDER if they really put their minds to it.

Another notable total is that of the Los Angeles Lakers (32.5). It’s probably going to take 50 wins to make the playoffs in the Western Conference in 2017-18 so if bookmakers are correct, LaVar Ball’s prediction of his son Lonzo leading the Lake-show to the playoffs in his rookie year could be just a little off.

That said, everything that the genius behind the Big Baller Brand has said so far has come absolutely true and after the family’s appearance on WWE Raw, I’m all in on them Ball boys.
