2019-20 NBA Regular-Season Win Totals: Bucks, Clippers Lead The Pack

Although the NBA season does not begin until October, bettors oddsmakers are already expecting the way the 2019-20 campaign??will unfold and the Milwaukee Bucks lead the bunch for projected win totals according to online sportsbooks.
The Bucks had the best record in the NBA last season and BetOnline has put their OVER/UNDER line at 56.5 wins. After right after the Bucks will be the Los Angeles Clippers at 54.5,??Philadelphia 76ers in 54.5, Utah Jazz at 53.5 and Houston Rockets in 53.5 to round out the top five Patches around the oddsboard.
Let’s take a look that I think will surpass or drop below expectations:
Look, I thought they’d win 50 games a year if LeBron James didn’t get hurt on Christmas Day. Now, they get a rested LeBron and add Anthony Davis into the mixture? This one feels like a no-brainer to choose the OVER.
The depth they added to this roster was not the top choices which were available however you can’t dismiss the developments of DeMarcus Cousins, Danny Green, Jared Dudley and Avery Bradley. Two of those four only got done playing in the NBA Finals and all are above-average defenders with three-point firing ability.
Do I think they can win the NBA championship? Not probably, but I do think they can easily win 52 to 56 games during the regular season if everyone stays relatively healthy.
Did I miss the memo where the Spurs regressed? Yes, they struck out on free agency and had to settle for??nabbing DeMarre Carroll for more wing thickness but this remains a well-constructed team and they are receiving their point guard back.
Dejounte Murray has reportedly looked good in offseason rehabilitation from his knee injury and that was the Spurs’ weakness last year when they needed to rely a lot about Derrick White and Bryn Forbes for their lead ball-handler.
San Antonio is still such a tough place for opponents to perform along with last year the Spurs??had the second-best home record in the Western Alliance. They had been the most efficient shooting team at the NBA when they led the league at three-point shooting percent despite carrying the maximum number of efforts.
They also play in a branch with the Grizzlies and Pelicans, who won’t be good next season. I believe that they’ll still squeak into the postseason and later winning 48 matches in 2018-19, I surely think they can replicate that feat.
Gone will be the glory years of the Chicago Bulls from the Jordan and Rose eras and now this franchise is in a continuous state of rebuild even though they keep adding bits each season. The Bulls did not really add anybody of importance outside point guard Coby White in the draft and Thaddeus Young and Tomas Satoransky in free service.
While I like these enhancements, not one of them go the needle and that’s where the Bulls were a train wreck last season. They rated in the bottom five in the opponent field-goal percentage and three-point percentage and finished tied for the worst home record in the NBA in 9-32 SU in 41 games. I may see them winning 25 to 29 matches but 33??wins to the Bulls??– in the Eastern Conference — seems absurd.
Here is the full list of projected win totals for the 2019-20 NBA season:
