The NBA Season 2015/16 arrives this Tuesday October 27 and I couldn’t be more happier! I just feel that I have a better chance with NBA Season Win Totals rather than NFL or NCAA football because of the number of games and terrible coaches in the NBA. Before I talk about terrible coaches, (insert thought bubble with the words Derek Fisher, Byron Scott) here are the current NBA Season Win Totals from Pinnacle Sports:

Team/Win Totals

Atlanta Hawks  49.5

Boston Celtics  45.5

Brooklyn Nets  28.5

Charlotte Hornets  34.0

Chicago Bulls  49.5

Cleveland Cavaliers  56.0

Dallas Mavericks  37.0

Denver Nuggets  27.5

Detroit Pistons  36.0

Golden State Warriors  60.5

Houston Rockets  56.5

Indiana Pacers  41.5

Los Angeles Clippers  56.5

Los Angeles Lakers  27.5

Memphis Grizzlies  50.5

Miami Heat  46.5

Milwaukee Bucks  43.5

Minnesota Timberwolves  27.5

New Orleans Pelicans  45.0

New York Knicks  29.5

Oklahoma City Thunder  57.5

Orlando Magic  34.5

Philadelphia 76ers  21.5

Phoenix Suns  37.0

Portland Trail Blazers  28.5

Sacramento Kings  36.0

San Antonio Spurs  56.5

Toronto Raptors  47.5

Utah Jazz  43.5

Washington Wizards  47.5

In doing research and reading previews, I found at Pinnacle Sports how they made their win projections for each team this season.

Now onto my picks for this season.

UNDER 29.5 New York Knicks – Oh my, Derek Fisher is a walking car accident and Phil Jackson is just not a very good manager without having the uber star. Carmelo Anthony will check out by game 10 of the season.

OVER 56 Cleveland Cavaliers – After a year back in Cleveland, King LeBron James and 2nd year assistant coach, err, head coach David Blatt are going to be that more in synch with the team (no pieces to add) and each other. And LeBron won’t be taking a two week holiday during the season. Should be in the 60s.

UNDER 60.5 Golden State Warriors – This will be close, but with Steve Kerr on the sidelines healing from back surgery has Luke Walton who has one year NBA assistant coaching experience takes the reins indefinitely. I’m on the Under.

OVER 41.5 Indiana Pacers – Frank Vogel is a coach that one can consistently bank on and with Paul George back for a full season, the Pacers could get up to 46 to 48 victories.

UNDER 36 Sacramento Kings – George Karl vs “Boogie” Cousins vs Vivek Ranadive, the craziest owner in professional sports. I love this three man cage match and let’s see how long it goes!

Best of luck to everyone betting this NBA Season!
