Vegas Over/Under: 28.5
The Record Projection: 26-56 of fromal The Bet: Prevent but lean under
The Phoenix Suns are oozing with potential, which makes this a frightening bet. Even in the event that you can reasonably expect the team to finish with no more than 28 wins (and you can), you don’t wish to be caught by means of a breakout out of Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Josh Jackson, Devin Booker or even T.J. Warren.
Individually, it’s hard to anticipate huge strides from any one participant.
That’s true of Booker, with a long way to go about the defensive end before he can have the value of a top-50 contributor, no matter how many things he may have the ability to score in a single farcical game. And yes, when you’re fouling to make additional possessions and pump up the score during a competition where the margin wasn’t particularly close, it qualifies as farcical. Fun and undeniably impressive, much like Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point outburst, but farcical.
Collectively, but the Suns’ ability to transcend expectations is frightful. Marginal improvement throughout the board could make our win projection laughably low, regardless of how tough it may be to compete in the Western Conference.
Over just is not the bet. The smart play remains expecting only a few extra wins upon last season’s mark (24-58) as the young men get their feet wet and the group probably explores the trade market for Eric Bledsoe.
