NBA Win Total Over Picks

Golden State Warriors Over 52.5 Wins (+100, FanDuel)

The Warriors follow up their championship-winning campaign with what may be a better roster this time around.

Coming off 53 wins last season, the “Dubs” return all of its starters, including a fully healthy Klay Thompson. They’ll also welcome back James Wiseman, who is the most talented center that the Warriors have had in years.

And don’t forget about Andrew Wiggins, who’s coming off his first All Star selection, as well as 23-year-old Jordan Poole, who’s poised to make another leap in his game.

Excluding those two injury-riddled seasons at the turn of the decade, Golden State has won an average of 62.5 games over the past eight seasons.

Utah Jazz Over 23.5 Wins (+102, FanDuel)

It was just last year when Jazz fans were celebrating its team’s 49 wins. However, after shipping away seemingly all of their talent, fans are already looking forward to Draft Lottery season in May.

Oddly enough, Utah sits in that awkward dilemma that comes with being a bottom feeder. They’re young and talented enough to compete for an entire season, but they’re also not horrible enough to tank unashamedly for Victor Wembanyama.

Collin Sexton is a two-gritty two-way player who takes every game seriously. Ochai Agbaji – the 14th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft – was named Final Four Most Outstanding Player in last season’s college tournament. Whatever you think of what’s left of 35-year-old Mike Conley, he’s still in Salt Lake City.

Will this squad even come close to contending for a play-in spot? No, but the pieces are there to avoid being the biggest laughing stock in the league.

New Orleans Pelicans Over 45.5 Wins (-110, FanDuel & BetMGM)

New Orleans showed its true potential as last season went on. After going 1-12 to start the season, the team showed its fight and wound up winning 36 games to reach the play-in tournament as the ninth seed. The Pels even made Phoenix sweat a little bit by bringing their series to six games.

Thirty-six victories is nothing special to write home about, but it’s worth noting that New Orleans acquired CJ McCollum at the trade deadline and consequently won half of the team’s 26 remaining games.

The biggest X-factor is, of course, phenom Zion Williamson, who missed all of last season with a foot injury. Last time we saw this freak of nature take the court, he was averaging 27 points per game on over 61% shooting from the field.

Williamson, McCollum, and Brandon Ingram form a formidable trio that can take the league by storm. Williamson’s health is key to reaching the necessary 46 wins, but with reports indicating that he’s in incredible shape, backing the Over is worth the gamble.

NBA Win Total Under Picks

Boston Celtics Under 53.5 Wins (-110, FanDuel)

This regular season figures to be a lot less smooth sailing for the Celts.

An undoubtedly valuable contributor to Boston’s hot streak last season was head coach Ime Udoka, who was able to band the team together after a middle-of-the-pack start to the season. However, Udoka has been suspended for the entire upcoming season, and the team will now have to turn to Joe Mazzulla, an unproven coach who has zero NBA coaching experience of any kind.

The Celtics did address their hole at point guard by trading for Malcolm Brogdon, but he’s bound to miss some time with knee issues that seemingly never dissipate.

The East is still strong, and without Udoka, the team may struggle to close out against tougher opponents. Boston is in for another nice year, but teams with Over/Under win totals of 50 or more tend to fall short of expectations.

Miami Heat Under 48.5 Wins (-110, DraftKings)

Miami could experience some major regression this season after an overachieving 53-win campaign. It was the Heat’s first 50-win season since the LeBron James days. Sorry Jimmy Butler, but you’re not even James lite.

Jimmy Butler (33) and Kyle Lowry (36) are losing some tread on their tires. To make matters worse, the team failed to bring in any notable talent during the offseason, while also saying farewell to veterans Markieff Morris and PJ Tucker.

Portland Trail Blazers Under 39.5 Wins (+100, DraftKings)

Portland finished 27-55 and was the 13th seed in the West last season. Now, we understand that Damian Lillard was limited to just 29 games due to an abdominal injury, but the Blazers actually went 7-29 in those 29 contests, so the “Lillard was out” excuse doesn’t apply.

The now-32-year-old Lillard will re-enter a lineup that’s significantly worse compared to last year’s. McCollum – his ex-teammate of nine seasons – is now a Pelican, and center Jusuf Nurkic hasn’t played in 56 games since the 2018-19 season.

Portland did add Jerami Grant, Gary Payton Jr., and 2022 lottery pick Shaedon Sharpe in the offseason, but their combined worth doesn’t improve the team enough to hit the 40-win mark.
