Vegas Over/Under: 28.5
The Record Projection: 26-56 of fromal The Bet: lean although Avoid under
The Phoenix Suns are oozing with possible, making this a terrifying bet. Even if you’re able to reasonably expect the team to finish with no more than 28 wins (and you can), you do not wish to get caught by means of a breakout from Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Josh Jackson, Devin Booker or T.J. Warren.
Individually, it’s tough to anticipate massive strides from any one player.
That’s true of Booker, with a long way to go on the defensive end before he can have the value of a top-50 contributor, however many things he may be able to score in one farcical game. And yes, when you’re fouling to create additional possessions and pump up the score in a competition in which the margin was not especially close, it qualifies as farcical. Interesting and undeniably impressive, much like Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point outburst, but farcical.
Together, but the Suns’ ability to exceed expectations is scary. Marginal improvement across the board could create our triumph projection laughably low, irrespective of how tough it may be to compete at the Western Conference.
Over is not the safe bet. The wise play stays expecting only a few added wins upon last year’s mark (24-58) as the young men get their feet wet and the group likely explores the trade market for Eric Bledsoe.
