Vegas Over/Under: 67.5
Fromal’s Record Projection: 70-12 The Bet: Avoid but lean over
In order to reward supporters of the over Generally, avoid gambling on teams which need to have a historic season.
Although 67.5 successes may seem a bit low for a ridiculously talented roster which somehow got better after winning 67 games and earning its second title in three Decades, only six squads have emerged from 68 or even more regular-season competitions in One season:
2015-16 Golden State Warriors: 73-9
1995-96 Chicago Bulls: 72-10
1996-97 Chicago Bulls: 69-13
1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers: 69-13
1972-73 Boston Celtics: 68-14
1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers: 68-13
This year’s Golden State Warriors are every bit as talented as the aforementioned squads. After bringing back all their key pieces and incorporating Jordan Bell, Nick Young and Omri Casspi to the mix, they may well be the most talented team in NBA history. We are even comfortable projecting them to break past the 70-win brink yet again.
But this high up no allowance for error exists. Two big injuries or one could make reaching 68 victories impossible. One stretch of cold shooting can wreck their opportunities.
Stay away, no matter how confident you may be in this bunch.
