2021 NBA Win Total Over/Unders!!!!!




Does the Fanpost still live? We shall see!

As many of you have no doubt surmised, I gamble on sports. For those of you weird nerds who were tracking the Olympics through this site, you no doubt remember my biggest triumph. Begging everybody to bet on Rudy Gobert to score 20+ against Italy at 7.5:1 and then actually having it come through.

That particular triumph put me in the red, which put me among the greatest 2% of gamblers in world history ... for several weeks. Now let's win some of that money back!

The lines come from Vegas Insider. I may actually bet the bold ones.

THE EAST!

Let me get this out of the way right off the top. I am taking the over on the Bulls for the first time since Tom Thibodeau was sent packing for being too good at winning. This team added many above average NBA players and I love the way the look together. My fears are that Javonte Green will come to earth, Vuc will go from mildly athletic to plodding and we won't have anyone beyond the core four. But I will still bet it. 45 wins! OVER!

The Knicks may be the easiest over in the bunch. Massive injection of talent coupled with Thibs never-say-die attitude and I will bet this every day of the week. I even put actually money on them winning their division at 23:1. I could see Fournier making an all-star team having found the perfect team and the perfect role. OVER!

For the Nets, I may be the only person in the world who truly understands Kyrie Irving, and he will retire before he will be compelled (as he sees it) to do anything. The entire team is a walking injury risk. Their health issues are a feature and not a bug for this team and not the stuff of counterfactuals. Their is no 'if the Nets were healthy they would have won it all' because that was never a possibility. And KD was not even close to being behind the three point line so fuck that as well. UNDER!

The Cavs are horrible looking and will win approximately zero games. UNDER!


THE WEST!

Don't like it. Don't watch it. I find these goofballs from California to be off-putting and alien and I will never cross the Mississippi again.

So my only pick lies on our side of the continental divide. PELICANS UNDER! THEY SUCK AND WILL ALWAYS SUCK! Lower body injuries for Zion and every kind of bad vibe coming out of that camp. I will put actual money on it.

Conclusion:

Who do you guys like? Who do you hate? We are all betting the Bulls over, right?
