A few notes on the odds above. For an additional look at NBA odds visit TopBet.eu online sportsbook.

1. Right off the bat, one of the teams odds I immediately notice is the Boston Celtics at 27.5. The last time Boston won less than 27 games was in 2006-2007 when they won 24 behind just 47 games from Paul Pierce.

2. The biggest positive and negative percentage changes on this list are: Cleveland Cavaliers (+20.12%) and Philadelphia 76ers (-21.34%).

3. How many different number of teams had a -10% or +10% change in their odds: The exact same number…Seven had both more than +10% and -10% change.

4. Only the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets had a -10% change and are still in the top half of the NBA in terms of win totals from last year.

5. Only the Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and New Orleans Pelicans had a +10% change and are still in the bottom half of the NBA in terms of win totals.

6. Seven teams in 2012-2013 finished with over 50 wins, this list projects eight teams to finish with over 50 wins, with the new teams to the group including the Brooklyn Nets, Indiana Pacers, Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls.

7. Last year, eight teams finished below the benchmark of 30 wins, for 2013-2014, seven teams are projected to finish below 30 wins, with the new teams to the group including the Philadelphia 76ers, Utah Jazz, Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks

8. In the past 5 regular seasons, there have been eight total instances of a team winning 60 or more games, on this list only the Miami Heat are projected at 60, with the next closest team being the Los Angeles Clippers at 57.

9. Regarding Philly’s 16 1/2: In the past 5 regular seasons, how many times has a team won fewer than 20 games? Eight. Three times has a team won fewer than 17 games:

10. Statistic to note: In games decided by 3 points or less last year (2012-2013), let’s look at a few of the teams:

Los Angeles Clippers, who finished with 56 wins, were 3-5 in those games

Oklahoma City Thunder, who finished with 60 wins, were 3-6 in those games

Indiana Pacers, who finished with 49 wins, were 4-9 in those games

On the other hand, in games decided by 3 points or less last year, teams at the bottom of the standings like the:

Sacramento Kings, who finished with just 28 wins, were 7-3 in those games

New Orleans Pelicans, who finished with just 27 wins, were 7-5 in those games

Charlotte Bobcats, who finished with just 21 wins, were 6-6 in those games

  1. In July, 1887, a software was heard inside the Clermont Warden’s Court for the reef claim 200 yards west of Hurley’s Dam, and the ‘Telegram’ states:.

    The breaking-in of young wild steers to function
    inside the team seemed somewhat cruel. On the Early days
    in the Peak Downs Field from “The Peak Downs Telegraph”.

  2. What I really want to see is what Vegas predicted would be the win total before last season and what the actual results were. Then we would see how much CRAP all this is. Would be nice to also see the predictions and results of the sports media to see how full of CRAP they are too.

    Lets just play the games. I think the more knowledgeable fans do just as well as Vegas or the average analyst. And noone can predict injuries.

    My prediction is 60 wins for Nets, 58 for Pacers, 57 for Heat, 55 for Bulls, 46 for Pistons, 45 for Knicks in the East. In the West, I have Spurs with 57 wins, followed by Clippers, then Houston then Grizz then OKC as best in West.

Trackbacks

  1. […] start with the good news: for anyone who bet on the Bobcat’s over, it was set at 27.5 and they have already won 31 (with 17 games to go). The bad news: if the playoffs started today, […]

  2. [...] Sheridan on Hoops posted the Las Vegas Hilton sport book’s over/under win totals for all 30 teams. My overall impression is that there is a lot of value in betting the under for the bottom five teams and moderate value in betting the over for the top five teams. [...]

  3. [...] Frankly, I would be shocked if the Sixers were able to win even half that many games. It seems that Vegas agrees with my subjective assessment, as the Over/Under for this year’s Philly squad is set at 16.5 [...]
