The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook took notice of the news and opened their NBA Win Totals betting market for all 30 teams in the league.

2020-21 NBA Contenders

  • Milwaukee Bucks 49.5
  • Los Angeles Lakers 46.5
  • Boston Celtics 45.5
  • Los Angeles Clippers 45.5

Of the above four teams, the Los Angeles Lakers were the only one to participate in last year's NBA Finals as they defeated the Miami Heat at the NBA Bubble from Orlando, Florida.

2020-21 NBA Pretenders

  • Detroit Pistons 23.5
  • Oklahoma City Thunder 22.5
  • New York Knicks 22.5
  • Cleveland Cavaliers 22.5

Going .500 in this year's regular season would translate to a 36-36 record and the clubs listed above aren't expected to get nowhwere near that record. Coincidentally, all four of these teams are from the Eastern Conference.

Eastern Conference - 2020-21 Win Totals Odds

Listed below are teams from the Eastern Conference and how the oddsmakers project they'll do based on wins for 2020-21 NBA regular season.

The top eight teams in each conference will make the postseason.

  1. Milwaukee Bucks 49.5
  2. Boston Celtics 45.5
  3. Brooklyn Nets 45.5
  4. Philadelphia 76ers 45.5
  5. Miami Heat 44.5
  6. Toronto Raptors 41.5
  7. Indiana Pacers 39.5
  8. Atlanta Hawks 36.5
  9. Washington Wizards 32.5

  12. Charlotte Hornets 25.5
  13. Detroit Pistons 23.5

  15. Cleveland Cavaliers 22.5

The oddsmakers at the SuperBook believe that only seven teams in the Eastern Conference will finish the 2020-21 NBA regular season above .500 (36-36).

And then there are the Pretenders listed above.

Western Conference - 2020-21 Win Totals Odds

Nba Finals Matchups Odds Week 9

Listed below are teams from the Western Conference and how the oddsmakers project they'll do based on wins for 2020-21 NBA regular season.

The top eight teams in each conference will make the postseason.

  1. Los Angeles Lakers 46.5
  2. Los Angeles Clippers 45.5
  3. Denver Nuggets 44.5
  4. Dallas Mavericks 42.5
  5. Utah Jazz 42.5
  6. Portland Trail Blazers 41.5
  7. Phoenix Suns 38.5
  8. Golden State Warriors 36.5
  9. New Orleans Pelicans 36.5
  10. Houston Rockets 34.5
  11. Memphis Grizzlies 30.5
  12. San Antonio Spurs 29.5
  13. Sacramento Kings 27.5
  14. Minnesota Timberwolves 28.5
  15. Oklahoma City Thunder 22.5

Of the three divisions in the Western Conference, the Pacific Division is expected to be the most competitive in the NBA 2020-21 regular season. The Lakers (46.5) and Clippers (45.5) are expected to surpass 40 wins. The Warriors were dealt a serious blow in November as star shooter Klay Thompson was lost for the season with an Achilles' tendon tear as their win total dropped to 36.5. The Suns (38.5) have been given a tad more respect after their recent effort in the NBA Bubble last summer and the acquisition of veteran guard Chris Paul.

Seven of the 15 teams in the West are expected to finish better than .500 by the oddsmakers.

How do I read the over/under line?

For example, the Milwaukee Bucks' win total for 2020-21 season is 49.5. If you believe the Bucks will finish 49-23 or worse, taking the 'under' is the play. For 'over' bettors, the Bucks would have to finish with 50-plus wins to cash tickets.

NBA Win Totals are available for all 30 teams in the league and placing 'over/under' wagers on their season production in the regular season is a great way to follow a team all season.

For the 2020-21 regular season, all teams must play 72 regular season games for the NBA Win Total wagers to be considered live wagers or what's known in the industry as 'Action.' The NBA Win Totals Odds set do not include postseason games.

Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus pandemic, bettors with active Win Total wagers could see their bets refunded since the regular season may not return or be reduced. At the same time, losing wagers will also be refunded.

Odds Subject to Change - Updated Tue., Dec. 22, 2020


The NBA following up a nine-game slate on Tuesday with another nine-game slate on Wednesday. The action gets underway with a trio of contests at 7:30 p.m. ET and wraps up with a heavyweight battle between the Lakers and Jazz at 10 p.m. ET.

The last game of the evening is arguably the most interesting. This is a potential Western Conference Finals preview. The Lakers are the defending champs, while the Jazz own the best record and Net Rating this season. Can the Jazz make a statement Wednesday night against LeBron James?

Let’s dive in.

KEY MATCHUPS

The Jazz are definitely a legit squad. Anyone who thinks this team is a fraud or can’t compete with the Lakers has simply not been paying attention this season. They’ve outscored their opponents by an average of +9.77 points per 100 possessions this season, which is at least +2.25 points higher than every other team in the league. They also rank first by a wide margin in Basketball Reference’s Simple Rating System, which factors in strength of schedule.

The Jazz are still significantly behind the Lakers in the futures market – they’re just +950 to win the NBA Championship, but this team’s respect is clearly growing.

Look no further than the line for tonight’s matchup vs. the Lakers. The Jazz are currently listed as whopping nine-point favorites, which is almost unheard of with LeBron in the lineup. The Lakers have only been underdogs of seven points or more once since the start of the 2019-20 season, and neither LeBron nor Anthony Davis suited up in that contest.

Speaking of Davis, his absence is the big reason the line is where it is at the moment. He hasn’t played in each of the past four games, and the Lakers have lost three of those contests. That includes an embarrassing three-point loss at home to the Wizards in their last outing.

That has created a narrative the Lakers just aren’t very good with Davis out of the lineup. That seems a little premature to me.

While they’re obviously better with Davis in the lineup, this team should still be quite good with him off the floor. The Lakers have posted a Net Rating of +5.8 with James on the court without Davis, which is a very respectable mark. LeBron can’t play the entire game – well, he probably could, but he shouldn’t – but this time should be fine in the long run as long as LeBron suits up.

I’ll take LeBron as a nine-point underdog every single time just out of sheer principle.

LINE MOVEMENT

There have already been some significant line moves on today’s slate.

One of the most notable line moves involves the San Antonio Spurs. They’re playing their first game since February 14th following a COVID-19 outbreak, and they will be significantly shorthanded tonight vs. the Thunder. Five players are out due to health and safety protocols – including Derrick White, Keldon Johnson, and Rudy Gay – while DeMar DeRozan is out for personal reasons.

The one positive is that the Spurs will be getting LaMarcus Aldridge back for this contest. He’s missed the past six games with an injury, and his return will give the Spurs some additional depth. That’s caused this line to move from Spurs +2 to Spurs +1 on FanDuel Sportsbook. There’s definitely an argument to be made about Aldridge’s impact on the team when they’re at full strength, but they’re going to need him tonight with multiple key contributors out of the lineup.
