Bet NBA with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
The start of the NBA season is almost a month away, and the offseason is in full bloom with several big trades and the draft already happening.
William Hill recently released its 2020-21 NBA win totals for all 30 teams. The biggest potential splash this offseason could be the Rockets (36) trading away James Harden. The Nets have been rumored as a potential destination, however would a trio of Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving be enough for the Nets (46) to have the highest win total?
“I don’t think the Nets would be highest if they got Harden, but it’d be close,” said Nick Bogdanovich, Director of Trading for William Hill US. “They’re already getting bet strongly for title futures. There are people anticipating that they’re going to get Harden, that’s for sure. So I think they’d be near the Bucks, but wouldn’t surpass them.”
The Bucks lead the way with a win total of 51. The defending champion Lakers are next at 47.5, followed by their two main rivals in the Clippers at 47 and the Celtics at 46.5.
Some other notable win totals include the runner-up Heat at 44.5, the 2019 NBA champion Raptors at 42.5 and the Warriors at 37.5. The Cavaliers have the lowest win total of any team at 22, with the Pistons (22.5) and Knicks (23.5) nearby.
There has also been early notable action and odds shifts on some teams’ win totals.
“We had a few bets on that OKC under, but obviously they were betting it because of the trades,” Bogdanovich said. “That’s the biggest win total move so far, it’s dropped by so much. The OKC under and the Hawks over are the two with the most action so far.”
The Thunder opened at 31.5, however after dealing away Chris Paul and Steven Adams, they’ve dropped by seven to 24.5. Other teams whose win totals have had major shifts include the Hawks (31.5 to 35.5), Trail Blazers (38.5 to 40.5) and 76ers (43 to 44.5).
Oklahoma City has also drawn the two largest 2020-21 NBA win total wagers thus far at William Hill. One Nevada bettor placed $2,200 on Thunder under 31 wins (-110) for a total potential payout of $4,200, while another Nevada bettor put down $2,200 on Thunder under 30 wins (-110) for another total potential payout of $4,200.
