We’re still looking forward to them, the pre-season tips from our Vegas bookie buddies have been released. Team punters and team hasty conclusions are delighted, the famous / – will still animate the debate. So, over 60 wins for the Bucks? Will the Thunder win 20 games? I can’t wait for April to come back to all these predictions.
Our sports betting friends have turned into NBA experts. An orange ball behind the crystal ball and off you go, the bookies are throwing up the balance sheets for the coming season. A good big dose of expertise coming straight from slot machines and Blackjack tables, nothing more legitimate to announce the NBA season even though the workforce is not all complete, that the training camps have not yet started and that franchises are not immune to trade or injury. We remind you that DeMarcus Cousins still has not found a team and that he could change the fate of a franchise, or not. The regular season won’t start for another two months, a little advice from the house: procrastinate a bit, play Chris Paul and analyze the situation well, rather than go all out, John Wall way, and finish by crushing the ball against the plank. Come on, now is the time, let’s find out the final standings for the 2021-22 season according to the gambling institution in Vegas, Caesars Sportsbook.
Let’s try 2 minutes to seriously analyze these predictions, using the conditional (don’t overdo it either). So the Brooklyn Nets (54.5 wins) would have the best record in the league with a small victory over the Bucks. In the top West, the veteran Lakers would make a comeback after a tough season and come away with a record similar to the Jazz and just ahead of the Suns. Note that our friends in Vegas probably don’t like the Knicks. The New Yorkers would only finish eighth (41.5 wins), with the same record as the ninth Bulls. A Play-in after a season of fire finished top 4 and a promising free-agency, not sure that Tom Thibodeau signs for this scenario. In the West, a strong comeback for the Warriors is expected with 48.5 wins and a top 4 in their conference. Regarding the bad guys, if the Pistons and the Magic should fight, the donkey cap goes to the Thunder with 22.5 wins. A record identical to that of this season and the OKC players (especially SGA) will therefore seek to dismantle the predictions, as they did a year ago. And finally, special mention to the Kings, who, once again, would not end up in Playoffs, or even in Play-in. We remind you that a non-qualification would be historic for our friends in California.
The bookmakers have spoken, the predictions have fallen, the fans will talk about it. If the predictions are still of little value and remain huge rushed conclusions, they provide a way to look into the season ahead. If a small hierarchy begins to emerge, we still advise you to wait a bit before playing your PEL on the Pels (it was easy).
